dbx PA2 overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit combines the dbx DriveRack PA2 with the dBX RTA-M measurement microphone to form a complete loudspeaker management system. The DriveRack PA2 is a loudspeaker processor that can be controlled via your Mac, PC, or mobile iOS or Android device. When used with the included RTA microphone, its AutoEQ function can be employed to listen to your room and automatically EQ it for optimized speaker performance. The AFS (advanced feedback suppression) feature is designed to eliminate feedback while preserving the sound of your system. In addition to automated functions, the DriveRack has integrated dbx compression and limiting as well as both a graphic and 8-band parametric EQ section. It also features driver alignment delays and a crossover section that supports full-range, 2-way, and 3-way systems. You can control the DriveRack PA2 directly from your Mac or PC via its rear-panel USB port, or connect the PA2 to a wireless router using its Ethernet port for compatibility with iOS or Android devices.

The DBX DriveRack Measurement Microphone (RTA-M) is an electret condenser microphone for use with the Real Time Analyzer function of the DBX DriveRack Control Processors. It runs on 15 volts of phantom power and produces a flat response from its omnidirectional pattern. Perfectly suited for live sound or contract installs.

    AutoEQ
    The AutoEQ algorithm is designed to ensure an accurate, fast, and non-intrusive automatic EQ experience.
    With an optional mic connected to the RTA Mic input "listening" to your room, the DriveRack PA2 AutoEQ algorithm sets speaker levels and room EQ automatically in a matter of seconds. This means room adjustments can now be made quickly, without subjecting the audience to annoying, lengthy broadcasts of pink noise
    AFS Feedback Elimination
    The Advanced Feedback Suppression (AFS) algorithm allows for faster, more precise feedback elimination, without adversely affecting your system's tone.
    The DriveRack PA2 listens for and anticipates feedback and adjusts speaker output automatically before feedback can start, while never altering your sound
    Wizard Setup Functions
    Wizards make initial set up easy, while ensuring speaker tunings and other settings are up-to-date.
    Wizard functions on the DriveRack PA2 to guide you through step-by-step processes to help you get the most from your loudspeaker system. It helps you configure level balancing, AutoEQ, Advanced Feedback Suppression, and provides access to built-in and constantly updating speaker tunings from most major speaker manufacturers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a sure fire way to sound your best Terrific deal from B&H. It is almost like getting the rta mic for free. The Driverack is an incredible easy to use, almost foolproof way of setting up the speakers in you PA system. We are using it in a house of worship but this unit is equally at home in a DJ's rack at a club.
