Harman’s dbx in Salt Lake City announces its DriveRack PA2 Loudspeaker Management System ($499.95). The original DriveRack PA provided all of the processing needed between a mixer and amplifiers to optimize and protect loudspeakers. The PA2 is designed for musicians who carry their own P.A. systems, as well as for installed sound applications.

The DriveRack PA2 can be set up and operated from a compatible tablet or smartphone. An all-new Wizard utility provides access to a host of configuration menus and on a mobile device, with full-color graphical displays that give ready visual indications of the parameters being adjusted. Users can now control all DriveRack features with a mobile device or laptop using Ethernet control via an Android, iOS, Mac, or Windows device. The DriveRack PA2 can also be operated via its front panel controls and display.

The DriveRack PA2 provides a comprehensive suite of system tuning and optimization tools. Its improved AutoEQ enables automatic and precise equalization of the loudspeakers to the venue in which they’re installed to achieve smoother, more accurate in-room frequency response. A new Advanced Feedback Suppression (AFS) feature is said to automatically find and dial out any problematic frequencies that produce feedback.

The PA2 offers additional system-tuning and sonic optimization capabilities, including dbx compression, graphic and 8-band parametric EQ, dbx’s exclusive Subharmonic Synthesis for enhanced low-frequency response, a built-in loudspeaker crossover (for full-range, 2-way and 3-way systems), limiting, and loudspeaker time alignment and time delay.
