OVERVIEW

Everything you need to get the most out of your stereo powered speaker system.

Powered speakers are beautiful things. Everything you need bundled into simple, tidy, portable packages. 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. With the PX, dbx has created a processor specifically tailored for powered speakers.

Utilizing dbx's 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. It even includes stereo or mono subwoofer support. With the included dbx M2 measurement mic, Auto-EQ corrects for audible deficiencies in the room environment. Dbx's patented Advanced Feedback Suppression (AFSTM) kills nasty feedback, allowing problem-free operation at higher sound levels, while dbx's patented Subharmonic Synthesizer extends bass response for enhanced bottom end.

With all that, you also get classic dbx compression and the protection offered by dbx's graceful PeakStopPlus limiting. Your ears, your audience, and your powered speakers will forever thank you. In spite of all that sophistication, rest assured dbx won't overcomplicate the simplicity of your rig. Dbx's exclusive Setup, Auto-EQ, 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.

I noticed some of the negative reviews here and felt the need to add some of my driverack experience to the reviews. First of all - Yes, it does take a little live sound experience, and a bit of learning to maximize the driverack. However, this unit is extremely flexible. Even without the RTA mic the driverack WILL cut feedback automatically, add both a graphic eq AND a parametric eq, plus limiting and compressing to your system - which honestly, even without the auto-eq and leveling is worth the price tag.People complaining about the auto-eq feature making the 'jet plane' sounds can still use the tool (either early enough before the gig where there are less people around or in the garage at home for the 30 seconds it takes). I just got the spec sheets for my speakers freq response and tailored the graphic eq to a nice, even 'flat' setting. Once you have that setting you can do anything you want to the sound with the parametric eq, and then I'm guessing you also have eq on your mixer to add a little more color to taste.The complaints about 'not having my speaker preset' is really nothing since its just a starting suggestion for where to turn your volume knob to, and a limiter setting. A little reading and a couple of hours using this unit and you WILL have a completely new pa system. In Fact, tonight I used it on my new Eon 515xt's and the sound was SO much clearer, less harsh, and more punchy after adding in a driverack.Regardless, do your homework, and when you add in this unit you will never do another gig without it - I know I won't

I have been using a Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496 processor between our unpowered mixer and powered speakers for several years. Due to a power spike the other day, the Behringer unit became damaged and had to be sent in for repair. In the meantime I needed something to replace it for live sound. From the magazine ads, the DBX DriveRack px sounded tantalizing. Although approximately $100 more than the Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496, I was eager to give it a try.Comparisons between the DBX and Behringer are going to be inevitable in this review as these units have very similar functions. The first thing I noticed was a smaller display with the DriveRack px which seemed unduly cluttered. Whereas the Behringer has a very user-friendly display showing exactly what you want to see via one or two pushes of a button and a spin of the data wheel. The DriveRack px's display seemed cryptic and hard to navigate. In a live performance, making quick changes in the Behringer's graphic EQ is a one-handed breeze; whereas with the DBX, it is cumbersome and non-intuitive. Even when I get up close to the display, it?s hard to tell if certain key parameters had been selected. The Behringer?s graphic EQ display is quickly and easily read from several feet away; and the ?Q? width can quickly be set so that EQ curves can be sculpted with ease. Unless I?m missing something, I didn?t see a ?Q? setting for the DBX - each band must be raised or lowered individually.As far as the RTA goes, out of several venues, the DriveRack was only able to do a acceptable job of setting the EQ in only one of those rooms. In the other environments, although I followed the Wizard's prompts faithfully, the EQ was typically bass-heavy with the lower bands boosted inordinately high. The whole ?preset? thing with existing brands of speakers smacked a bit of marketing hype. If the unit is going to analyze the signal present at the reference mic, does it make any difference if the pink noise is coming from EON10s or Mackie 350s? Also, I couldn?t find a preset for simply setting up a single speaker.The anti-feedback function seemed to work pretty well on the DriveRack px; although, due to the pickup pattern of mics I use (Shure Beta 87A) and careful speaker placement, I rarely have a problem with feedback anyway. I have found the anti-feedback feature of the Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496 to be fast and effective ? you can even see the graphic display dynamically changing as it finds and notches out troublesome frequencies. The DBX?s ?famous? over-easy compression seemed to do a lot of pumping even at conservative settings. (To be fair, I didn?t spend a whole lot of time with this feature.) Again, the display wasn?t as informative as the Behringer?s display for compression. With the Behringer you can actually see and modify the curve which is depicted graphically ? along with the threshold, level, ratio and slope. With the DBX it?s just numbers.Summary: I have been in the audio business for over 40 years as both a musician and studio owner. I?ve always been one to keep abreast of the latest technology, so I?m used to learning new equipment and software. However, I must say that I spent a lot of my time with the DriveRack px perplexed and scratching my head trying to navigate its confusing menus and deciphering its awkwardly-worded manual. From my experience with the two units, I must say that the Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496 can do everything that the DBX DriveRack px can do only much better; plus it does a whole lot more for a $100 less. The decision should be a no-brainer. In fact I packed up the DriveRack px today and sent it back in exchange for a second, Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496 for backup.

Comments about dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer:

As a drummer who also has taken on the task of sound guy, I couldn't be happier with this product. It has cut sound check time down to almost nothing. Simple to use once you do it a few times. And tons of features packed into one rack space. I thought our system sounded pretty good until I finally tried out the Driverack. Amazing clarity, tons of headroom and a perfectly eq'd room in seconds. No more ringing the room! Its made my life alot easier and worth every penny.

Comments about dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer:

Great overall product. It packs all the important features; EQ, Compressor, Crossover, and feedback supressor in a 1U unit. Plus the RTA is great. However, setting it up takes some getting used to. The menu is not intuitive, and getting to some functions require using the manual. Once you have your presets, it's relatively easy to use.

well worth having

By joeyp

from buffalo,ny

Comments about dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer:

i,ve been using for over a year and won't set up my rig without it the difference in the output and lowend is amazing. I use this unit with a presonus studiolive mixer, 2 qsc subs and 2 big mackie 3ways.none of these speakers are in the preset list btw. without the prx the rig lacks thump and punch. the prx is not the easiest to set up but once it is it rocks. u don't need the auto eq or all that crap. set all gain stages correctly, season the crossovers to taste and let it rip. this unit is not designed to adjust on the fly. if you can't get this thing to sound good you have to learn how to use it.

Proper use of the PX Driverack

By Don

from Omaha. Nebraska

Comments about dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer:

I purchased the JBL 535 powered speaker system a yeay and a half ago, coupled with the drive rack is nothing short of a mirical from heaven. I called DBX on the phone and one of there Techs told about a procedure to use while doing sound check. when it comes up to do the "EQ" portion of the test, move the condensor mic to about a foot from off the floor and point directly at either right or left speaker colums at a 45 degree angle and point it upward and then let the drive rack due it's thing while the "Pink" Noise" is active. this will give you a far better anaylasis of what your system is doing within the enviroment to which the performance. Did this at a gig in the local music hall that seats over 2 thousand, and with the use of all Sennheiser 945 mics (18) total The performance sounded nothing short of a very good studio recording.
Enough said.

    Comments about dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer:

    People say this is hard to use. However, the screen gives you all the directions you need.

    I thought the feedback filter wasn't working but the DBX customer support answered every question in detail. The technical support seemed far more advanced than I'm used to experiencing with a business. It turned out that I wasn't using like I should and the equipment was fine.

    I'm very happy with my purchase.

    Please note that the PX Drive Rack only has presets for mid/high to low end speakers. For example, It has QSC K Searies presets but not QSC KW series. But it does have a custom setting that allows for any speaker to get set up if the preset isn't there.

    Comments about dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer:

    Aftr purchase of a good power or active speaker system with subs for te FOH, Ididn't think this ting could improve in any way. I WAS WRONG. Using the simplifid "Quick Set-up Gude" I ran the pink noise through the system and the system came to a point wherelive perfrance levels wer increased by about 35% withmore headroom. I dsagree with he negative revews and feel that lack of care in following the manual is the problem.I found that venue changes are quick after you go through set-up acouple of times. I store settings by venue name and you only need to do it nce. The balac between the subs and mains had been a big problem. This makes it perfect everytime. We have goten tons of compliments on our improve sound snce adding the DBX PX. If you have active speakers, recommend it.

    Comments about dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer:

    Having one of the preset powered speakers might be easier, but even without one, using the custom option, the auto wizard took less than 10 minutes to configure the Leveling, EQ &amp; Feedback Suppression and it never sounded better. Having a compressor/limiter and a PEQ is a big plus. I wouldn't hesitate buying another one for another set up. I have an engineering background and I must say that this was well thought out and constructed. If you're on the road a lot, this is a great tool to have to quickly set up your sound for the price.

    Wouldn't run sound without one

    By Synth Quest

    from Sunny Portland, Oregon

    Comments about dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer:

    Kudos to DBX, not only for making a great product but keeping it affordable.When I first got it, I was a little intimidated with all the button pushes necessary to set it up. After running it a couple of times, set-up was not only very simple it is quick. I can do it (almost) blindfolded in under 5 minutes.What does this thing do?1 ? It balances out the PA to the room acoustics ? automatically. 2 ? It has a built in Parametric EQ so you can set your overall sound ? rock, jazz, gospel, etc.3 ? Feedback eliminator.5 minutes of set-up and the PA has never sounded better - ever. Feedback is now a thing of the past. I really was able to gain an additional 12 dB of volume before feedback, while preserving the integrity of the sound. It sounds better than ?ringing out the system? with a 31 band GEQ - plus it is all automatic - a real time saver. What more could you ask for?If you want a fast set-up that makes your system sound great and tames the feedback then this is what you need. Yes, it really works.

    This is a great product & makes the pa sound great. dbx did a fantastic job "even if there are people who cant read the manual and then complain when they cant figure it out", dont blame dbx if your not smart, you should not be running sound anyway. if you have an ounce of brains this product is a no brainer and your pa will sound better than it ever has plus its only one rack space instead of taking up to 6 rack spaces

        It's easy to use if you can follow the directions on the screen. If you can figure out a smart phone or remote you can figure out the DR. The only thing I don't like is that the feedback filter doesn't seem to work as well as the one I purchased years ago. I just got my new DR so I'm hoping I'm just doing something wrong. I still love it and wouldn't go without it.

          Comments about dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer:

          I purchased this unit to use for live performances and found that the presets for my active speakers do not exist. Unless you have allot of time on your hands to make this thing work, don't bother. I did get it to work in my studio on my JBL's eon G2's and it sounded wonderful. Its a shame that DBX did not do their homework for all the powered speaker industry. They make it sound easy to do the custom set up however it is not! It is a big pain! My question to DBX, if it is so easy to do why did you not provide the presets in the first place? If you have the equipment that works with the, very limited presets menu, fine. If not don't bother, unless you want to put the massive amount of time into it.

          See all my reviews

          Comments about dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer:

          The real issue is how well does it work and how good does it sound. To be honest, I couldn't believe the difference this thing made in both the volume and the quality of sound. Our PA never sounded better. DriveRack is so good that we're buying a second one to use on our monitors.Follow the directions, line by line and your sound will be "dialed in" in under 10 minutes - no joke. After you've used it a few times, you can dial in the sound in less than 5 minutes total.The feedback suppression will easily give you 50% to 60% more volume - that alone is worth the asking price. Couple that with an adjustable crossover, Para-EQ, Limiter, dbx compressors and the other included noise toys and you have a killer processor for live sound.There are 12 notch filters to eliminate feedback and the cool thing about them is that you can assign any or all of them to be either fixed or floating. If your lead singer wanders all over the stage (don't they all?) then a floating notch filter will clamp the feedback frequency within a half a second - which is way faster than our soundman who usually drops the mains at the first sign of feedback.After using one, I will never play without one again - it's that good..... in fact, if our sound tech didn't double as a roadie - I would replace him with a DriveRack.

          I am an electronics engineer who happens to run sound for a local band part time. I have messed around with all kinds of PA sound gear. I bought this unit to aid in the setup of the various places our band plays around town. While it is a quality product, it is really too complex with such a small display, manually adjusting the eq is a real pain. NO way someone in the band would have the ability to make adjustments while playing during soundcheck. The auto eq is a neat feature, but where we play, it is difficult to run the auto eq prior to the sound check as the sounds like a 747 flying over the building for about 3 minutes. Not a crowd pleaser. Good in concept but too much is hidden behind the non-intuitive user interface.So, I am selling mine on ebay, going to something a little less complex.
