dbx DriveRack PX Reviews4.8/5.0 based on 9 customer reviews
After a lifetime of incorporating EQs, compressors, delays, and feedback supression into live sound systems, I discovered the DriveRack. I'm now a convert. Why anybody sets up a system without a DriveRack anymore is beyond me. My DriveRack PX allows me to show up at the gig, run a quick analysis, and have perfect EQ and AMAZING feedback supression. At gigs, I can now even move in front of the MAINS with my mic and have NO issues! I will never again go without a DriveRack!

Set it and walk away!I am NOT a LIVE guy... The studio is my place, but this DriveRack made me feel right at home doing live sound. Had 5 Mics on stage and even allowed the use of a highly gained fig. 8 ribbon mic center stage with great pickup and NO FEEDBACK, without having to do much more than run through the wizards. WOW!

Master ElectricianGreat pace of gear. Works great with the powered speakers, used the wizard set-up in a church and in a tent, either place it worked great. For the price I would recommend every one getting one in there rack.

A-freakin-mazingI have 2 QSC K12 speakers and a Ksub. They sounded great (or so I thought until I added the DriveRack PX) ... WOW! This thing sounds so good it brought tears to my eyes. I never knew my speakers could sound so unbelievably clean. The EQ on this thing is great. The feedback eliminator is top-notch too. I can now walk up to my speakers, microphone in hand, and I need to get about 2 inches away from the speaker with the mic to get it to feedback. AMAZING!

You need this!For starters, it's just flipping cool! Second if you think your sound is awesome (like I did) , this will make it crazy amazing! We have a superb pa system, but without this you don't get that "big" sound like the rest of the pros have. This is my little monster behind my crisp sound. Get a drive rack

DriveRack PX: The Missing LinkThis baby really does it all....auto EQ, smooth compression, limiting, anti-feedback. I run this with a pair of QSC K12's + 1 Ksub and it really makes my speakers shine for whatever room/situation I am in.
My only reason for not giving it a 5 start rating is because of the documentation. There are a few things they left ouf of the manual which caused a little bit of confusion, however, it's not that hard of a product to figure out.

Great Little UnitI've waited to post a review on this piece of gear since I wanted to see how well it help up in our situation.
Sonically, it is a great-sounding unit as long as proper attention is paid to gain stages - from the source on stage all the way to the mains. I've found that using the reference mike and auto EQing the room provides a useful starting point, and best results are achieved by manually tweaking and overriding some settings.
Durability-wise, I am really impressed. We are a church that uses a school auditorium for services, and we have been loading in and out every week since 8/2008. All our gear is kept in an outside storage container all year round (New England weather). Despite the extremes in temp and humidity, this unit performs flawlessly. Of course, we allow ample time for our stuff to get to room temperature and "dry out" before even plugging it in.
It's nice not having separate EQ, comp, limiting, delays, crossovers, etc. And having presets are huge for us. We have different EQ presets for different weather conditions; what sounds nice and warm in the winter when it is dry, sounds harsh and tinny when it is hot and humid. Having the ability to recall the setting from last summer as a starting point is a HUGE plus, considering our time constraints each week.
I cannot recommend this gear enough!
