dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer
Powered speakers are a beautiful thing. Everything you need bundled into one simple, tidy, portable package. Just grab 'em and go, right? Well, you may think your powered speaker system is complete, but you're missing half the picture. DriveRack PX is the other half. In another dbx industry first, they've created a processor specifically tailored for powered speakers. Utilizing highly-acclaimed DriveRack technology, the PX picks up where your powered speakers leave off. The DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer has everything you need to get the most out of your stereo powered speaker system, including stereo or mono subwoofer support. With the included dbx M2 measurement mic, Auto-EQ corrects for audible deficiencies in the room environment. Patented Advanced Feedback Suppression kills nasty feedback, allowing problem-free operation at higher sound levels, while the patented Subharmonic Synthesizer extends bass response for enhanced bottom end. With all that, you also get classic dbx compression and the protection offered by graceful PeakStopPlus™ limiting. Your ears, your audience, and your powered speakers will forever thank you. In spite of all that sophistication, rest assured this won't over complicate the simplicity of your rig. Exclusive Setup, Auto-EQ, and AFS Wizards, and out-of-the-box support for a host of JBL and other popular powered speakers, make setup a snap. Louder, cleaner, better sound than you thought possible from your powered speakers.

dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer
dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, Easy, Accurate, low-noise, SUPER VALUE!This thing WORKS! We love the single rack-space format and the included reference mic. That makes this a GREAT deal. It is so simple that unsophisticated users can learn it in a few minutes, and when they hear the results, they never go back. Installs in two minutes. After a few uses, it takes only one minute to adjust. That s good because pink noise is irritating to the proletariat. The memory function will store saved-settings for recurring venues / artists.Loud rock bands especially appreciate the anti-feedback. Jazz singers & acoustic musicians love it when they hear accurate vocals & instruments. This helps reveal nuances they worked so hard to perfect, and details of their fancy digital effects. The limiter is transparent but brings solidity and presence to vocals while protecting investment in good speakers.We have three systems that include this unit, and we now recommend this with every PA we build. Of the dozen we've installed, none have failed. Clients comment on the improved sound by simply installing and using this in existing systems. It adds detail to good systems especially in challenging environments.One caveat; This will not make a silk purse out of the proverbial sow's ear. If your PA is junk, this won't give dramatic results. However, we have had success with QSC, Eon, JBL, & Mackie powered speakers. QSC speakers are especially responsive because they are flatter throughout wide volume ranges. For small venues we serve, we seldom use subwoofers. When we do use subs, this easily adapts. The improvement is impressive. Pro tip: Want subs for a truly bumpin mix? Use ONLY ONE, CENTER-STAGE. If you must use two subs, sum them to mono and place center stage. That radically reduces low-end phase cancelation so this thing can work its magic.I know of nothing else at this price that does so much so easily and well. All professionals use tools like this, but this is affordable.
