Maximize your system
You've built a nice PA system, so why not get the most out of your gear? dbx designed the DriveRack PA+ loudspeaker management system to be the ultimate link in the chain between your mixer and your speaker system. Descended from the incredibly popular DriveRack PA, this versatile processor replaces your old rack full of gear as it sets out on its mission: to make your system deliver maximum performance without a risk of speaker meltdown. And its automated features make this a valuable tool for bands that don't carry a sound engineer.
dbx's Set Up Wizards walk you through setting up your system with step-by-step instructions. If your speakers and amps are on the list that's built into the PA+, the system will set itself up automatically. If not, you can use the Auto EQ Wizard to tune your system, then engage the automatic feedback suppression to kill feedback as the system gets turned up. Whether you have a touring system or a permanent installation, the DriveRack PA+ can make your system sound better.
There's Wizards in there. Don't worry, they're friendly Wizards, and they've got features to show you.
Check out some of the features built into the DriveRack PA+.
dual 28-band graphic EQs

2x3, 2x4, 2x5, 2x6 crossover configurations
How it works
You simply send pink noise from the PA+ through your speaker system, as the processor measures the response with an omnidrectional mic (not included), then adjusts the equalization and other processing for optimum performance.
You can improve the bass response with the subharmonic synthesis feature, which creates a tone an octave below bass notes in your music, then mixes it into the signal to pump up low-frequency punch. And there's no worry when you add on to your system – the PA+ includes built-in crossovers for 2-way and 3-way systems. The PA+ also includes 25 presets for suggested applications, along with 25 slots for user-programmable presets.
