Setting up has never been this easy. And DriveRack PA2 anticipates potential feedback and adjusts the system before it has a chance to deafen the audience. Finally, to make this experience even more friendly, dbx lets you do all of this from the front panel of the DriveRack PA2 or from your mobile device of choice.

Easy to set up and great results!

I am a sound volunteer at our church of about 200 people and we were running a simple system of a board running directly into amps so we decided to add a dbx DriveRack to our system and I was honestly nervous about setting it up but my awesome salesman Ben Porter was there for me every step of the way and it was way easier to set up than I feared and we are extremely pleased with the results. I have had people in our first service comment about how much easier it is to understand people talking and the praise team in second service has never sounded so good! We liked it so much we bought a second one for speakers in another room! Thanks Ben!!!

dbx DriveRack PA2

I Can't Imagine Any Tech Operating Without This. It's Auto Set Parameters Are Fabulous And The Tweaking Adjustments Are Understandable. I've Used The Standard Original Drive Rack PA And I Moved It To The Monitors. (Fixed That Problem To.) With The Drive Rack PA 2 The Fronts Are So Clear It Is Hard To Distinguish The Live Performance To The Bands Own CD Playing On Break! It's That Good. Also The Set Up Feature Uses A Modern Sound (People Friendly Other Than Pink Noise). This Is Good When The Arena Is Occupied. I Love People Coming To Me And Instead Of Criticizing My Mix Saying That's The Best This Band Has Ever Sounded And How Do You Do It! I'm Impressed Also With The Laptop Control That Saves A Lot Of Running Back & Forth. This Is A Cost Effective Improvement That I'm Sold On!!!

Great unit

After it works its magic on your main speakers very little adjustment is necessary as far as tone goes for your mains


Get this because it makes your setup easier and your sound system so much better. Mike Baldonado and Sweetwater have my business for life,they are the absolute best.

Review dbx DriveRack PA2

I was shopping for an equalizer for my PA to improve the vocals and to clean and improve the sound to karaoke tracks for my karaoke aplication. Looking at the reviews and DJ's advise, between all the other brands, everything pointed to the dbx brand. The search was narrow between the dbx 1231 and the dbx Drive Rack PA2. accordingly to my budget. I called Sweetwater and spoke to Ed Nystrom and he advice me to get the dbx Drive Rack PA2 because not only I can equalize the 2 channels but 6 channels with the PA2 equalizer, also have so many other functions, like the crossover adjustment for the sub woofers, speaker optimizer with feedback suppression, Auto EQ, compression, and mobile device control. With the app you can make the necessary adjustments to your system in a fly without causing any wear and tear to your equipment. In top of that I got a $50 instant rebate, good until June 30, 2015. This is one of the best investments I have done for my PA. Thanks to Sweet water and Ed Nystrom for advising me to get the dbx DriveRack PA2 and the help after the sale with technical support! I'm also planning on buying the RTA mic.
