collapse expand iconDescription

This innovative processor provides all the tools needed to maximize and protect your PA system for live performance. Packed with dbx's latest proprietary AutoEQ and Advanced Feedback Suppression algorithms, the DriveRack PA2 takes the guesswork out of dialing in perfect sound for any venue. An updated setup Wizard gets you up and running faster than ever before. And with Ethernet control, all functions can be accessed and controlled remotely from your preferred mobile device or laptop. Whether you're a touring musician or run your own PA company, the DriveRack PA2 is a must-have for optimizing your live sound.

AutoEQ For Accurate, Non-Intrusive EQ

The DriveRack PA2 features an improved AutoEQ algorithm for extremely precise, rapid and unobtrusive automatic equalization. With the RTA mic, AutoEQ now sets speaker levels and room EQ in just seconds without subjecting audiences to lengthy pink noise broadcasts.

Enhanced AFS Eliminates Feedback

Nothing disrupts a live performance like audio feedback. Fortunately, dbx engineers have enhanced their already stellar Advanced Feedback Suppression technology for even faster, more accurate feedback elimination without compromising tone. The DriveRack PA2 actively listens for and anticipates feedback, making adjustments before it occurs to keep your sound feedback-free.

Updated Wizards Simplify Setup

The DriveRack PA2 features updated Wizards to guide you through easy configuration of level balancing, AutoEQ, AFS and speaker tunings. Wizards provide access to built-in and continuously updated speaker tunings from major manufacturers to help you get the most from your speakers.

Essential Input and Output Processing

The DriveRack PA2 offers all the processing needed between your mixer and amplifiers. Inputs include dbx compression, AFS, graphic EQ and 8-band parametric EQ. Outputs provide crossover support for full-range, 2-way and 3-way systems, 8-band parametric EQs for speaker tunings, dbx limiting and driver alignment delays.
