Overview

The Behringer ULTRA-DRIVE PRO DCX2496 is an indispensable tool for the precise setup of multiple loudspeaker systems or arrays. Installation contractors, live-sound engineers, cinemas/discotheques/concert hall operators will quickly learn to love this model's rich features. Signals can be split in various ways to assure precise sound by using the optimal frequency range of each loudspeaker.

Start with its 3 analog inputs (one suitable as a digital stereo AES/EBU input) and 6 analog outputs. You get maximum flexibility in just one rackspace. Superb high-end AKM 24-bit/96kHz A/D/A converters give you ultimate signal integrity and an extreme dynamic range of 113dB. Easy connection of external digital signals with sampling rates from 32-96kHz is a breeze with the integrated sample rate converter. There are precise dynamic EQs for level-dependent equalization and extremely musical parametric EQs, selectable for all inputs and outputs, and "Zero"-attack limiters on all output channels guarantee optimal signal and loudspeaker protection.

You also get 4 different mono and stereo output operating modes, all with individual crossover filter types (Butterworth, Bessel, and Linkwitz-Riley) with selectable roll-off characteristics from 6-48dB/octave. The delays for all inputs and outputs are adjustable. This allows you to correct manually or automatically for room temperature, phase and arrival time differences. An additional sum signal is easily derived from the A/B/C inputs.
Now that remote control is such a hot topic, you'll be glad that the future-proof Ultra-Drive Pro software enables single or multi remote control via PC through RS-232 and RS-485 interfaces. And the link option via RS-485 network interface enables cascading of several Ultra-Drive Pros. A Windows-based editing software is available for download free of charge. No matter what the future brings, its open architecture assures easy software updates. A PCMCIA slot allows you to store all your settings and recall them anytime you change the location--virtually taking your Ultra-Drive Pro with you.

But don't be fooled by the Ultra-Drive Pro's sleek design. Its high-power 32-bit Sharc-DSP and ultrahigh resolution Crystal/AKM A/D & D/A converter provide outstanding audio performance--and the servo-balanced, gold-plated XLR connectors for all inputs and outputs guarantee excellent connectivity for the years to come.

As a sound installer I have installed or used 5 of these units. Within 6 months, 4 out of the 5 had some type of failure including one which would turn itself off and reboot in the middle of the gig. I highly reccommend going with a dbx driverack or a rane instead of this unit.

DCX2496 Review

By TG

from Burbank, CA

Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DRIVE PRO DCX2496 Crossover:

I first bought the Drive Rack PX. There were a number of things I did not like about it -ie, no channel mutes, no delay, no power button. This DCX2496 answers all of that & more. Though it does not have the auto leveling & EQing that the PX does, I found that I did not like those functions anyway - I'd rather do them manually. I only wish that I could define the output parameters further, but this device is still AWESOME w/o that. Good job Behringer. You guys are really doing a good, affordable thing w/your latest gear.

In a word,

By Msteve121

from Tampa, FL

Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DRIVE PRO DCX2496 Crossover:

I used this strictly as a crossover and for signal level control so all the amps in the amp rack can have the same gain level. It does ok, I certainly would not recommend this as a system processor. I definitly cannot handle the strain of multiple signal processes. But it is useful as a crossover where settings can be saved and locked making it tamper proof. It does make a low level hum that can be heard when nothing else is coming through system/

Snap, Crackle & Pop

By Karl-5ZhHR

from California

Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DRIVE PRO DCX2496 Crossover:

The title above pretty much sums up my experience so far with the DCX2496.I have re-soldered almost every joint and still can't stop it from crackling when it warms up. Anyone out there with a fixx I'll be very grateful. My next option (aside from replacing it with maybe a DBX) is to change the input relays; maybe one of 'em has a poor contact which shows-up after the unit warms up? if not for this, the unit sounds fantastic when it's working.

Perfection for a budget...

By Hammerhead-sSYV8

from Harrsiburg, PA

Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DRIVE PRO DCX2496 Crossover:

Finally pro level loudspeaker management and control for those of us without unlimited budgets! More features and more control over the DRPA, plus you can actually control each input and output. This is something that the DRPA folks left out of their unit! This this is a breeze to use. Even a monkey could use the PC interface! I own 8 of these units now and I am very happy with every one of them. A big A+ on this unit is the value for your dollar, PC control, software interface, delays, limiting, and true stereo operation.

Excellent crossover

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DRIVE PRO DCX2496 Crossover:

I am into SR biz mainly for churches. I have been using BSS and KT processors in the past years and installed the new Behringer Xover recently. It just blew me away, since it is even better than the BSS for a fraction of the price!
