dbx VENU360 Overview

The DriveRack VENU360 from dbx is a loudspeaker-management processor designed to protect and optimize front-of-the house, stage monitor, delay-fill, and zone loudspeaker systems in clubs, outdoor music events, or houses of worship.

Connect the VENU360 between your mixer and amplifiers/powered speakers, and use it for precise feedback elimination, automatic speaker level and room equalization, crossover-frequency setting, dbx compression/limiting, driver alignment delay, and more.

The unit provides a 5 x 6 routing/mixing matrix (using four AES signals and one analog signal) and a 3 x 6 signal processing chain. The 24-bit A/D and D/A converters with dbx Type IV conversion protect the incoming audio signal from accidental digital clipping at the A/D stage, while the 32-bit floating point, 48 / 96 kHz internal processing produces professional audio quality with high headroom and wide dynamic range.

For easy operation, the Wizard functions guide you through simple, step-by-step processes to help you quickly configure the unit. For more control, you can use the manual mode which lets you customize each parameter separately. A large, bright, LCD display and nine 6-segment signal meters provide easy-to-read visual feedback. Additionally, the free DriveRack VENU360 control application offers network control via the built-in Ethernet port, and is available for iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows-compatible devices.

As relates to the PA2 (479), the 260 (699), and the 360 (995), what would I not be able to do with these units absent an RTA-M microphone?
Asked by: Christian
All units mentioned provide similar functionality with varying degrees of feature sets. The dbx DriveRack VENU360 Loudspeaker Management System expands on the feature set of the dbx DriveRack 260 and dbx DriveRack PA2 with more crossover capabilities, more bands for EQ, and more I/O and signal processing.

In a few words, what are the major differences between the PA2 (479), the 260 (699), and the 360 (995)? Say, for a venue of 100 to 200 people. Thanks!
