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.

They are more money but way more versatile. Of course, you can’t directly compare headphones and a far-field speaker system and expect the audio quality to be identical. Perhaps your expectations are unrealistic. I’d rather have the controls readily at hand for those nights where it goes from folky solo act, followed by a series of 80’s 90’s hair-metal tribute bands.
DBX DRPA – Long term use / reliability
BTW, here’s the layout now: Are you using the software in the amps as well as the DRPA? Login or Sign Up. Just looking for some input.
Once they get past their initial break in period they seem pretty reliable. 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. Audible quality changes are not cheap. To clarify things, first of all your amp has to be able to swing whatever voltage you wish to set the limiter to, plus at least a little bit of reserve, otherwise the amp will clip before the limiter clamps down on the signal.
I have had absolutely no problems with mine and I purchased it within a couple weeks of when they came out. There’s also a negative side. I had 1 where some buttons on it stopped working save – of all I prefer to leave the compression off and just use the limiter function.
Take a look at the DR As with all DR products, you do need to understand gain structure and you also need to ignore the gain structure addendum in the manual Screen came on and it’s been working for two years now. We limit the subs because you will not hear them distort.
Cleaning faceplates and occasional EQ dissection to clean the sliders isn’t a real problem for me. Lots of reasons to upgrade. 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 drppa driven Mackie CR – old!
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 vrpa in any way. He is thinking it will be a one-unit fix-all-of-our -problems box.
Fine until someone backstage starts twiddling knobs and opens up the level controls on the power amps. I’ve used the wizard and some time, but not all the time It’s assumed that the amp is capable of exceeding the maximum recommended voltage of the particular enclosure.
Previous 1 2 Next. Anyone know anything about that? It will provide you with the crossover you are currently missing and allow you to put hard dx on the system for those 80’s hair band types.
Keep the other side through the DRPA and shut down the sub amp. Life is just a game, don’t take it to seriously! So the moron that dares touch your gear could turn down the amp gain and, but never cook the driver by drla the gain up.

Questions about DBX Driverack PA+ – Page 2 –
Buttons start to go a little quick – but you usually aren’t playing with those if you get it set up correctly. If that’s full tilt fine, but it’s just as OK if it’s at I use the DRPA a lot for smaller installs. Running the amp wide open and the mixer low to control levels can result in high noise. Yeah, for an install, I’d go at least with the DR 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 position of the gain pot on the amp itself.
Just because a is a “better” product; it doesn’t automatically improve your situation if you’re having troubles running a DRPA.
On the contrary, over on the harmony central forum I have read a few people say to run the amps gain full open and let the DRPA do the limiting, since it will clip before the amps do regardless because of input threshold or something. So are you saying that the Driverack and the Ashly Protea are comparable, sound wise and converter wise?
