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.

Thompson Drpq promo shots on railroad tracks were cool in A properly set up DRPA should not take away the crispness and clarity. It will provide you with the crossover you are currently missing and allow you to put hard limiting on the system for those 80’s hair band types. It makes sense what you said about setting it with the amp gains up and then backing them back down, in the ebx Ive been doing I assumed that the amp gains would be left at full gain, however i did not think this would have been the optimum signal to noise ratio.

You might suggest the Alesis to the boss as a somewhat drap but almost competent paperweight. The one on monitors really the backup had the screen go blank.

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 the features are. I don’t know if I would feel ebx only letting my DRPA do the limiting and having my amps on maximum sensitivity.


Came in the next day to take it out of the rack for repair and just to see I powered it up. I’ve had 2 fail within 24 hours of installation for no reason.

Audible quality changes are not cheap. Since your issue is with clarity and crispness, you’re talking about the MRX’s. It’s assumed that the amp is capable of exceeding the maximum recommended voltage of the particular enclosure.

He has the blessed Alesis comp on the monitor feed!?!?!?!?

Questions about DBX Driverack PA+ – Page 2 –

Running the amp wide open and the mixer low to control levels can result in high noise. This hopefully becomes a blatant indication to the dummy pushing drpz to hard, to back off to a reasonable level. Screen came on and it’s been working for two years now.

The owner wants to get a better system to compliment the one at his newest venture. Getting the most our of a speaker system involves more than just throwing a DSP in there and calling it done. Life is just a game, don’t take it to seriously! Used in this way, the audio signal is unaltered and faithfully reproduced until you exceed the limiter threshold, and then you hear extreme compression. Just because a is a “better” product; it doesn’t automatically improve your situation if you’re having troubles running a DRPA.


No not using any software on the amps.

DBX DRPA good or not so good????

They are more money but way drap versatile. I am using the DR correctly too with the JBL and Crown amp settings and setting everything at unity gain and at the same clip point, nothing is over driven What you can measure vs what you can hear come at different price points.

I had 1 where some buttons on it stopped working save – of all Can you say XTA? Dhx might work better? Lots of reasons to upgrade. Home Board index Electronics Mixers and Processors.

What settings are you using? If that’s full tilt fine, but it’s just as OK if it’s at Why not have him take a look at the DR or a Minidrive.

There is no real need to set limiters for tops, as you will hear them rdpa. The dbx has good converters. 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.

What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it’s all about? Take a look at the DR
