Description

The dbx DriveRack PA2 gives you all you need to get the most from your PA. Now with complete control from your mobile device!

The DriveRack PA2 provides all the processing you need between your mixer and amplifiers to optimize and protect your loudspeakers. With the latest advancements in dbx’s proprietary AutoEQ and AFS algorithms, a new input delay module for delaying the FOH system to the backline, Ethernet control via an Android, iOS, Mac, or Windows device, and updated Wizards, the DriveRack PA2 continues the DriveRack legacy of great-sounding, powerful, and affordable loudspeaker management processors, for a whole new generation.

AutoEQ
New, improved AutoEQ algorithm ensures an extremely accurate, fast, and non-intrusive automatic EQ experience. With the RTA Mic “listening” to your room, the new, updated DriveRack PA2 AutoEQ algorithm sets speaker levels and room EQ automatically in a matter of seconds. This means room adjustments can now be made very quickly, without subjecting the audience to annoying, lengthy broadcasts of pink noise.

Enhanced AFS Feedback Elimination
Enhanced AFS™ algorithm for faster, more precise feedback elimination, without adversely affecting your system’s tone.Nothing turns audiences away like annoying and potentially painful audio feedback. Fortunately, dbx engineers have revisited their already-stellar Advanced Feedback Suppression algorithm and made it work even better. The DriveRack PA2 listens for and anticipates feedback and adjusts speaker output automatically before it even has a chance, while never altering your sound.

Updated Wizard Setup Functions
Updated Wizards make initial set up easy, while ensuring speaker tunings and other settings are up-to-date. Wizard functions on the DriveRack PA2 guide you through easy, step-by-step processes to help you get the most from your loudspeaker system. Helps you easily configure level balancing, AutoEQ, Advanced Feedback Suppression, and provides access to built-in and constantly updating speaker tunings from most major speaker manufacturers.

  • All New Setup Wizard
  • Streamlined AutoEQ
  • All New AFS (Advanced Feedback Suppression)
  • Mobile Control (Android, iOS, Mac, Windows)

    Comments about Dbx Driverack Pa2 Complete Loudspeaker Management System:

    WOW! With the Auto EQ feature, the system will adjust to the environment to immediately adjust the sound to a desireable setting! Afraid of blowing out your speakers? dba has you covered with DSP protection. Want to add a little more low end? The subharmonic synth has you there too. So you are too lazy to menu dive at the rack unit? Well you can control parameters with a mobile phone too! For venue owners that are particular about their sound, but busy with multiple managerial tasks, this is the answer.

      Optimize your sound

      Staff Reviewer

      Comments about Dbx Driverack Pa2 Complete Loudspeaker Management System:

      The DBX DriveRack PA2 is perfect for optimizing your passive speakers. It also protects the speakers from being pushed to hard and blowing. Best part about the PA2 is the ability to control the EQ system wirelessly which is perfect if it is installed at a venue.

        Great Unit

        By 

        from Canoga Park, CA

        Comments about Dbx Driverack Pa2 Complete Loudspeaker Management System:

        This is going to put somebody out of work. It used to be that you'd have to scrutinize what frequencies when to what speakers, and set delay times, so that the folks in the cheap seats didn't hear echos, but this things built in mic listens to the sound, analyzes your setup, and sets itself. It can dial in a better sound than even a professional sound engineer could get. Very impressive.

        Comments about Dbx Driverack Pa2 Complete Loudspeaker Management System:

        This thing is like a crossover on steroids. You can do a lot more than just choose what frequencies go to what speaker. You can control and tweak everything. If you're running a big PA setup, you have to have one of these.
