The DriveRack PA2 Loudspeaker Management System ($499.95 MSRP) enables users to set up a loudspeaker system and control it using via an Android, iOS, Mac or Windows mobile device or laptop. The PA2 is designed for bands, musicians and artists who carry their own P.A. system and for a wide range of installed sound applications.

The original DriveRack PA provided all of the needed processing between a mixer and amplifiers to optimize and protect the connected loudspeakers. The DriveRack PA2 includes a new Wizard for faster and easier set-up, a new AutoEQ and Advanced Feedback Suppression (AFS).

The DriveRack PA2 can be set up and operated from a compatible tablet or smartphone via Ethernet using the free dbx PA2 Control App, available at www.dbxpro.com, the iTunes Store and Google Play. Users have access to a host of configuration menus and on their mobile device or laptop, with full-color graphical displays that give ready visual indications of the parameters being adjusted. 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 AFS Advanced Feedback Suppression feature automatically finds and dials out any problematic feedback-producing frequencies.

The PA2 offers additional system-tuning and sonic optimization capabilities, including dbx compression, graphic and 8-band parametric EQ, a new input delay module for delaying the front of house system to the backline, 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, loudspeaker time alignment and many additional features.
