SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: Once installed and configured for the system it is amazingly simple to setup for different venues. The wizards walk you though everything and even tell you how much to boost or cut the attenuaters on your power amps. This is really amazing in clubs that have odd configurations or walls sitting in the way. for example it will tell you to decrease your right top cabinet by 5db if it is needed to correct for the shape of the room. Feature: It only takes one rack space at replaces an entire rack of effects and processing units, The feed back suppression is pretty amazing you hear that low level feedback starting and before you can turn and look at it, the feedback is gone. The wizards and android control app are extremely easy to use. The speaker offsets are something I would have never thought of but I am convinced that little details like that are what makes this such an amazing product. Ease of Use: With the wizards it is pretty painless to set-up the only thing I can see that would improve it is to have wireless functionality on-board so that an external router is not needed. Quality: It is sturdy. I expect that short of something drastic happening to still be using this when I get too old to play anymore. Value: In short for a gigging band that is never in the same venue two nights in a row, you cannot afford to not have this if you want clean consistent sound. Manufacturer Support: I had a question regarding my particular speaker configuration and posted a question to the manufacturers site and got an answer almost immediately. The answer was one that I may have figured out on my own given time, but was pleasant timely and accurate. This allowed me to get up and running sooner, with less worry. Thanks DBX! The Wow Factor: Wow is an understatement, our sound is so clean that we even had a club owner mention (as they all seem to do) You were a little loud tonight but with sound that clean it doesn't really matter. Overall: I needed to buy a crossover, I needed to upgrade my EQ and I was interested in automatic feedback suppression because mixing sound from stage is complicated enough. It seemed a good value to get all of that in one unit. The unit is not overly complicated but it is not plug and play either. There are still functions on it I have not enabled (subharmonic synth) due to the fact that we do run sound from stage and I simply cannot listen, play and sing while adjusting them to learn how to use them to the best advantage. From the first gig with it our sound was greatly improved and has only gotten better as we become more familiar with the unit.

Overall: We are a Grateful Dead Tribute band and we are in a different room every night. we have a rather odd speaker configuration. 2 JBL JRX 115s for our high ends, 2 JBL JRX 118’s for our mids and two SoundTech scoops for our bottom end. We demand the best sound we can give our fans and the difference between using a standard crossover and the DriveRack PA2 are night and day! Before getting the crossover and eq’s set was a nightmare and always sounded somewhat muddy. First night with the DriveRack and WOW… Crisp highs, great mids and the punchy bottom end were looking for. Although we can’t use the wizards for speaker and amp setup, going into the preset 13 (3 way stereo) and setting all the crossover points and roll offs was a cinch. Storing this new configuration was easy and painless. Now we walk in set everything up, do an initial gain structure set up without the cabs hooked up and then plug in the cabs. Hit the RTA and select Auto EQ and Level assist and it will tell you what amp and channel (right or left) to raise or lower the attenuation and gives you the db steps to raise or lower! As for quality, this thing is built like a tank! And only one rack space… Tech support was fantastic. I had a few questions and they were patient and precise. If you’re on the road and in a new venue every night this is money well spent! We still haven’t used all the functions, we only run 2 monitors and really don’t push a lot through them so feedback is generally not an issue but, it’s nice to know that if it occurs, we have the tool to fix it. The sub harmonic synth is really not something we need with the scoops, and so far have not tried it. This is not a plug and play device as you will have to read the directions a couple of times to take in all that this unite is capable of doing. But with a little knowledge and careful reading you should have no issues with setting it up! Overall this is the best investment we have made for the band period. We went for good sound to GREAT sound!
