Product Highlights
  • USB Port
  • Low, Mid and High Channels
  • Easy Setup Wizard
  • XLR Inputs and Outputs
  • Extensive DSP Processing

The dbx DriveRack PA+ is a powerful 1RU Loudspeaker management processor, packed with all-inclusive dynamics, EQ and Real Time Analysis processing for the professional on a budget. The unit essentially replaces a rack full of gear, and utilizes an intuitive user interface to control independent channels of processing power.

Among some of the DSP featured is a linkable 28-Band Graphic equalizer, a dbx stereo compressor module, feedback eliminator and the 120A Subharmonic Synthesizer on the input section.

The six-channel DriveRack PA+ output system includes parametric EQs, peak limiters (which provide protection against speaker blowouts) and an alignment delay. In combination with the Wizard setup system, the unit represents a methodical design capable of delivering optimal, all-inclusive PA processing in small and mid-sized venues.

        We had decent sound equipment in a church that would seat about 120. But we wold have problems with feed back, echo, etc. This solved our problems and it is very easy to set up. I have set up sound equipment, but I am no sound expert, but this was very easy to use and solved our problems.

          Comments about dbx DriveRack PA+ - Complete Loudspeaker Management System:

          This is great for the money. I'm not having tons of success with the Auto-EQ. But using my ears I'm dialing in a sound that's pretty good I think. Not sure if the full time analizer will display frequencies... kind of frustrating but I just started playing with this unit. For the money, it's cool (I was happy to find the best price at B&H). It's replacing an older crossover and EQ. So, with those and the many other cool features, I'm happy with it.

              We bought this product to enhance our church sound system.

              It worked just described, easy for a novice like myself and also gives the ability to further tweeking of the sound instead of or after using the setup wizard.

                    This is a self contained crossover, parametric EQ, compressor/limiter, and distro unit. It is flexible and easy to use. We didn't use the wizard to tune the system, but did it by ear. It is definitely getting the most out of our sound installation.
