Take Control of Your PA!

Raising the bar for speaker management, the dbx DriveRack PA Plus gives you a very easy way to make your sound system sound better. Loaded with updated speaker and amplifier settings, including all JBL portable speaker lines, Crown amplifiers, and many other manufacturers' systems, the rackmountable DriveRack PA Plus loudspeaker management system can improve any setup you've got, making your sound clearer and punchier. Best of all, the unit works hand in hand with your room, giving you reliable tools to fix acoustic problems, eliminate feedback, and more.

Auto Wizards: Improve Your PA The Easy Way

The dbx DriveRack PA Plus is loaded with powerful tools for EQ, limiting, and feedback elimination. But you probably won't even have to get into the nitty gritty of it all, since the DriveRack PA Plus's auto wizards will help you with almost everything from the get-go. If you're the kind of person who ignores the user manual, the DriveRack PA Plus offers a fast and friendly Auto EQ Wizard with a 28-band Real Time Analyzer (RTA) for tuning your system to the venue, an Auto Level Wizard to fine-tune each speaker's level, an AFS Wizard that automatically sets filters to eliminate any feedback during performances, and more.

Your New Plus One

The DriveRack PA Plus enables you to set up your PA system on your own and feel confident about it without having to get a Ph.D. in acoustical engineering. Its Auto EQ and AFS functions provide immediate improvement of even the most modest PA systems, and its quick setup wizards guide you through speaker and amp selection and levels without much of a learning curve. A few minutes is all it takes to make your PA system sound like it was set up by a pro.

The dbx Box That Grows with You

The DriveRack PA Plus accommodates your system even when you add new pieces or change out your speakers all together. Crossovers, parametric EQs, and Peak Plus limiters and alignment delay are there to help you integrate your gear, and the easy setup wizards will do the complicated tuning work, even for biamped or triamped speaker systems. A dbx stereo compressor with both hard-knee compression and ten levels of Over Easy compression, plus a 120A subharmonic synthesizer, are also onboard for even more audio flexibility.
