This B&H Kit combines the dbx DriveRack 260 Loudspeaker Management System with a measurement microphone and high-quality microphone cable to create a professional sound system calibration system, well suited for audio engineers, club installations, mobile DJs, and more.
dbx DriveRack 260 Equalization and Loudspeaker Control System
The dbx DriveRack 260 Loudspeaker Management System is a processor designed for complete system control of equalization, dynamics, and routing possibilities in live or contractor sound applications. Its powerful processing includes both a linkable 28-band graphic and a 9-band parametric EQ, while system dynamics are controlled by the built-in compressor. Further component protection is provided by DBX's PeakStopPlus limiters, which help protect against too much power and sudden transient spikes.
Before users adjust the EQ, they may want to utilize the internal pink noise generator and real time analyzer to get familiar with the room acoustics. In addition, an easy to assign, flexible alignment time delay and handy 15V phantom powered mic input are also provided for further room management and control.
The goal of a high-quality control processor is to help "dial in" a room and contribute to the overall system performance without directly interfering with audio integrity. Custom templates are built-in for specific amplifier and speaker combinations with user setups easily adjusted using the Wizard setup system and complete DriveWare GUI control.
An outstanding tool for maximizing audio quality in a number of environments, the DriveRack 260 is derived from an already proven series of processors and continues the tradition of providing flexible system control using simple, intuitive interfaces.
dbx RTA-M Reference Microphone
The RTA-M Reference Microphone from dbx is an omnidirectional mic designed for use with dbx DriveRack series real-time analyzers (sold separately) to provide an acoustic picture of a room. It can be used to capture audio and fine-tune your sound system performance to match the response characteristics of the room for live sound and recording applications. In addition, the RTA-M is built with a metal housing, requires phantom power (9 to 52 VDC), and includes a mic clip along with a hardcover case.
Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR Male to XLR Female Microphone Cable (6', Black)
The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR Male to XLR Female Microphone Cable (6') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.
Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. The 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.
