Dbx DriveRack PA2 Speaker and PA Management System

As an audio professional, sound quality is of the utmost importance, and if sound quality is of the utmost importance to you, you owe it to yourself to invest in an all-in-one solution like the DriveRack PA 2.

The DriveRack PA 2 provides all the processing you need between your mixer and amplifiers to optimize and protect your loudspeakers. The DriveRack PA 2 continues the DriveRack legacy of high-fidelity, powerful, and economical loudspeaker management processors for yet another generation of audiophiles 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 new and improved AutoEQ algorithm ensures an absurdly accurate, swift, and seamless automatic EQ experience. With the RTA Mic "listening" to your room, the updated DriveRack PA2 AutoEQ algorithm sets speaker levels and room EQ automatically in a matter of seconds, saving you a whole lot of effort and foregoing any need to subject the audience to mindnumbing pink noise.

Enhanced AFS Feedback Elimination

An Enhanced AFS algorithm was developed and utilized in the DriveRack PA 2 for faster, more precise feedback elimination, without negatively impacting your system's tone. Getting feedback is one of the quickest ways to bring the vibe to a screeching halt for your audience. Fortunately, dbx engineers have revisited their already-stellar Advanced Feedback Suppression algorithm and made it work even better. The DriveRack PA 2 listens for and anticipates feedback, and once detected, adjusts speaker output automatically before the unwanted screeching has a chance to pierce the eardrums of audience members.

Updated Wizard Setup Functions

Updated Wizards make initial set up a breeze, while ensuring speaker tunings and other settings are up-to-date. Wizard functions on the DriveRack PA 2 guide you through easy, step-by-step processes to help you get the most from your loudspeaker system. The Wizards can help you do it all, from easily configuring your level balance, AutoEQ, and Advanced Feedback Suppression, to providing access to built-in and constantly updating speaker tunings from most major speaker manufacturers.

The item had good reviews and I was looking for a way to lighten the load of my DJ system by replacing several other pieces of equipment with this item that will take the place of those items.

I've been looking at it for awhile. With the $50 sale and free RTA mic it was a no-brainer to buy now!

This unit is parameterized to work with jbl prx425 speakers?
fabio f on Jun 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The PRX425 speakers are not listed on the presets. However if you have the data sheet or the specs for the speaker it's very easy to input those by hand. I personally love the drive rack PA2 systems and put them in the majority of my smaller installations.
Can the driverack pa2 work with a pair of full range powered yorkville monitors to improve sound quality minus the subs? And does it incorporate the same functionality as the driverack px model which was specifically designed for powered speaker cabinets?
Mike on Oct 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the DBX DriveRack PA 2 Speaker Management System can absolutely run with a a pair of powered speakers, and the DSP built into the unit will ensure you can tweak the sound however you need to get the best audio quality. The PA2 features all of the same functionality of the DriveRack PX plus more.
Would this piece of equipment be suitable for an acoustic guitarist/vocalist who plays in mostly small to mid-size restaurants? I have a pair of QSC K12's and 2 different small Allen & Heath mixers which I would use with this item. Can you tell me am I on the right track towards improving my sound quality or would some different equipment be a better choice?
Ter on Mar 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Given that the DBX DriveRack PA 2 features a compressor, limiter, and parametric EQ, it could definitely be used to improve the sound quality of your performance. For advice on other possibilities to go along with or in place of the DriveRack, please give us a call!

Predictable Performer
I've designed and tuned sound systems for many years now and still believe that this unit is a solid performer at a reasonable price.

If it will work for your application, it is a well-refined unit.

A few things I would like to see improved - an added pad switch for the RTA mic input and an isolated transformer for the power supply. It has a tendency to pick up noises in the electrical circuit that a decent sound board does not if connected directly to your amps.

Also, I don't think people realize that you can run this in a mono application in a few cool ways. One that I've done before is to send L-low to sub's, L-mid to mains (powered speakers with built-in crossover), and R-high to fills. The unit allows left and right eq separately so you can set the fills by themselves, then eq the rest with the fills turned on. You can set the delay appropriately and have a pretty decent set up when fills are required.

Black finish on this latest version looks pretty sleek, too. Enjoy!

Wish I bought this years ago
I am so impressed by the overall performance increase just by adding this one piece that I am sad I didn't purchase one of these years ago. I could have saved myself a whole lot of time and frustration. I will now be removing my Sonic Maximizer, EQ and crossover. I will be buying another one of these to build out a second gigging system.
