A venue owner is hot and bothered to install a DRPA. He is thinking it will be a one-unit fix-all-of-our -problems box. His regular knob-turner can. Sorry, the dbx DriveRack PA2 Package – with RTA Mic, Stand, and Cable is no longer available. We’ve left this page up for reference only. Check out the great. Hi,i want to know, why should i or why shouldn’t i use it. If you think it is ok to use it, how.

The response I am getting locally depa that the DR is the weak link in the system and that most pros don’t like them Can you say XTA? Just because a is a “better” product; it doesn’t automatically improve your situation if you’re having troubles running a DRPA.

We limit the subs because you will not hear them distort. He has the blessed Alesis comp on the monitor feed!?!?!?!?

I’ve used the wizard and some time, but not all the time I don’t know if I would feel safe only letting my DRPA do the limiting and having my amps on maximum sensitivity.

They are more money but way more versatile. Some issues I have not been able to find answers to: Getting the most our of a speaker system involves more than just throwing a DSP in there and calling it done. It’s assumed that the amp is capable of exceeding the cbx recommended voltage of the particular enclosure.


Another thing, maybe regarding only the DRPA series, but the normal sequence to set the gain structure as listed on the DBX forum, allows for a final drpz of the gain pot on the amp itself. The truth be known, if the limiters are set correctly, the amp should never have the opportunity to drap clipping.

Would that make up that much of a difference, again I am using the PAA2 as a spectrum analizer and the frequncies are all level. It now sits in a pile of dx stuff though.

I was actually impressed as when I originally purchased the system I wasn’t expecting that. For example, if the amp can only produce 54 volts flat out before clip, and you set the limiter threshold to 60V, the limiter will not prevent clipping in any way.

Life is just a game, don’t take it to seriously!

BTW, here’s the layout now: The dbx has good converters. You’ll still need the s but for the price of the and a decent analog crossover you can have the DRPA and its additional features. Keep the other side through the DRPA and shut down the sub amp. According to the DBX gurus this doesn’t render the best signal to noise ratio, but I would sooner put up with a slightly higher noise floor than having the cones turned inside out.


Used in this way, the audio signal is unaltered and faithfully reproduced until you exceed the limiter threshold, and then you hear extreme compression.

No not using any software on the amps. You then set the amp attenuation for the desired sound level. I’ve gotten plenty of work off the sound people are hearing, just would like to take it to the next level. Running the amp wide open and the mixer low to control levels can result in high noise. A properly set up DRPA should not take away the crispness and clarity. I’ve had 2 fail within 24 hours of installation for no reason.

What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it’s all about? Anyone know anything about that? I am addressing the technical talent issue by sitting all involved down with a willing musician and going through uses of the gear, explaining what all dbc features are.
