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 is that the DR is the weak link in the system and that most pros don’t like them 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 Since your issue is with clarity and crispness, you’re talking about the MRX’s. The truth be known, if the limiters are set correctly, the amp should never have the opportunity to approach clipping.

Yeah, for an install, I’d go at least with the DR This is what seperates the men form the boys IME. Take a look at the DR BTW, here’s the layout now: Another option would be to go to an Ashly Protea 3. As with all DR products, you do need to understand gain dxb and you also need to ignore the gain structure addendum in the manual Join the HC Newsletter. Lots of reasons to upgrade. Buttons start to go a little quick – but you usually aren’t playing with those dbs you get it set up correctly.

Anyone know anything about that?

What about DBX DRPA Sub-harmonic Synthesizer

I’ve gotten plenty of work off the sound people are hearing, just would like to take it to the next level. I use the DRPA a lot for smaller installs. The dbx has good rrpa.


It’s assumed that the amp is capable of exceeding the maximum recommended voltage of the particular enclosure.

Or would I not notice any ebx. I have had absolutely no problems with mine and I purchased it drpz a couple weeks of when they came out. On the contrary, over on the harmony central fbx 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. His regular knob-turner can set levels and adjust the FX. Why drpq have him take a look at the DR or a Minidrive.

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. Getting the most our of a speaker system involves more than just throwing a DSP in there and calling it done. I prefer to leave the compression off and just use the limiter function.

You then set the amp attenuation for the desired sound level.

Home Board index Electronics Mixers and Processors. Shouldn’t be any problems at all regarding audio quality. I also use a Medusa Whirlwind snake so the chain I think is pretty good stuff.

Usually you’d set the limiter at full amp gain. 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’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.


The DriveRack was not out yet or I would have gotten one. I’ve had 2 fail within 24 hours of installation for no reason. Did you use the wizard or did you set it up manually? I don’t know if I would feel safe only letting my DRPA do the limiting and having my amps on maximum sensitivity.

Audible quality changes are not cheap. But that’s where you have it to set the limiter, not necessarily where you leave it in use. It now sits in a pile of unused stuff though.

DBX DRPA good or not so good???? | Harmony Central

Came in the dxb day to take it out of the rack for repair and just to see I powered it up. The owner wants to get a better system to compliment the one at his newest venture. I had 1 where some buttons on it stopped working save – of all I have it sounding pretty damn good using the DRPA. So why not test by eliminating the DRPA?

Once they get past their initial break in period they seem pretty reliable. Life is just a game, don’t take it to seriously!

Perhaps your expectations are unrealistic.

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. I use a Phonic PAA2 to monitor the frequencies and everything is in line. You might suggest the Alesis to the boss as a somewhat oversized but almost competent paperweight.

Not one has failed in the field yet. Nothing is reliable in a harsh enviroment. According to the DBX gurus this doesn’t render the best signal to noise ratio.
