Looking for a complete loudspeaker management system to fine tune your PA setup? Check out the dbx DriveRack PA2, a loudspeaker management system that can be controlled via your Mac, PC, or mobile iOS or Android device. Using an optional microphone connected to its RTA input, 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 by connecting from your Mac or PC via the rear-panel USB port, or connect the PA2 to a wireless router via its Ethernet port for compatibility with iOS or Android devices.
- The AutoEQ algorithm is designed to ensure an accurate, fast, and nonintrusive 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.
