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.

BTW, here’s the layout now: So run one side directly from the Venice to one amp to the ‘s. So why not test by eliminating the DRPA? We limit the subs because you will not hear them distort.
I have had two for about three year now. He is thinking it will be a one-unit fix-all-of-our -problems box. But that’s where you have dx to set the limiter, not necessarily where you leave it in use. If that’s full tilt fine, but it’s just as OK if it’s at Why not have him take a look at the DR or a Minidrive.
View the Media Kit. 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’ve gotten plenty of work off the sound people are hearing, just ddbx like to take it to the next level.
His regular knob-turner can set levels and adjust the FX. Getting the most our of a speaker system involves more than just throwing a DSP in there and calling it done. Help FAQs Go to top.
Have you tried without the DPRA?
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. Of course, you can’t directly compare headphones dbbx a far-field speaker system and expect the audio quality to be identical. Did you use the wizard or did you set it up manually? Your speakers will still be protected. I use the DRPA a lot for smaller installs.
What settings are you using? Mackie CR – old! Travis “Audio Viking” Baits ” Login or Sign Up. The dbx has good converters.
Can you say XTA? What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it’s all about? No not using any software on the amps.
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 Another option droa be to go to an Ashly Protea 3. Came in the next day to take it out of the rack for repair and just to see I powered it up. Nothing is reliable in a harsh enviroment.
Running the amp wide open and the mixer low to control levels can result in high noise. 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. I’ve used dgx wizard and some time, but not all the time Not one has failed in the field yet.
Tomorrow, for which I work, is mine. Which might work better? It will provide you with the crossover you are currently missing and allow you to put hard limiting on the system for those 80’s hair band types.
I’ve had 2 fail within 24 hours of installation for no reason. According to the DBX gurus this doesn’t render the best signal to noise ratio. It makes sense what you said about setting it with the amp gains up and then backing them back down, in the reading Ive been doing I assumed that the amp gains dbc be left at full gain, however i did not think this would have been the optimum signal to noise ratio.
Previous 1 2 Next. The truth be known, if the limiters are set correctly, the amp should never have the opportunity to approach clipping.
I was actually impressed as when I originally purchased the system I wasn’t expecting that. It now sits in a pile of unused stuff though. It’s assumed that the amp is capable of exceeding the maximum recommended voltage of the particular enclosure. The Minidrives made an immediate difference in the sound, for the better.
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.
I use a Phonic PAA2 to monitor the frequencies and everything is in line. Join the HC Newsletter. Keep the other side through the DRPA and shut down the sub amp. Audible quality changes are not cheap.
