Ox up one rackspace, the DriveRack PX weighs four pounds and has an expensive look and feel. Easier still, you can bypass the setup wizard and go directly to the Auto-EQ and AFS Advanced Feedback Suppression wizards via 25 factory presets that support the most popular powered loudspeakers.

Any input would be great.

For now I’m just running a FOH system for mobile entertainment, but am in the process of assembling a rig for getting into live sound. With the band, we yanked our graphic EQ, feedback suppressor, and compressors from the rack and replaced them with the PX. E-mail required, but will not display. To give it the ease-of-use acid test, I decided to fly without driveraack net no manual.

Inside, the PX features a subharmonic synthesizer that extends xriverack response, stereo band graphic EQ, stereo multi-band parametric EQ, PeakPlus limiters, a pink noise generator, and a classic dbx compressor. During our sound check, we were stunned by the difference. Setup is dirt-simple and quick; as long as it takes to plug it in and connect your mixer, speakers, and M2 RTA mic, and run the wizards.


I performed two tests with the DriveRack PX. How does the traveling band get a consistently great sound from gig to gig, so you can always sound and play your best? Simply use the left side of the DriveRack with nothing connected on the right side. The first thing we noticed was a much cleaner signal. Having a Powered Speaker Optimizer in your rack will lift your sound to heights previously attainable only with an experienced FOH engineer and a high-end, mondo-speaker-management system, such as a dbx DriveRack Our system sounded as though it had doubled in size and clarity—particularly with vocals usually the first to get buried in a live mix —and for the first time, we had perfect gain structure.

The next test was at my home studio. Arturo martinez I’m looking into rack gear and sound processing, and am wondering if the PX or something similar, would be a better and more compact option than dual type EQs and possibly adding feedback units. All of the other mixers I’m looking into are dricerack, where the Yamaha I believe is a 19″ rack mountable unit. While this box is designed primarily for live performance, I would seriously consider one for home studios set up in spare rooms. The sound system, that is.

The first was drivrrack my band playing in three different clubs, the second was in my home studio. Less gear in the signal path means less noise.

Not only will the PX make your powered PA speakers sound louder and clearer, your active studio monitors will also sound much better than you could imagine. I’m trying to cover all the bases, but have the most compact rack setup possible.


Putting the PX in front driveraack my muy-pricey active monitors was surprising to say the least.

You can store these settings in 25 user locations for later recall when you come back to play the same room. Then the PX automatically adjusts EQ, helps you set gain, and lets you pc the number up to 12 and width of stereo notch filters for feedback reduction.

We experienced the same thing in each club.

Signal Processors PA Systems. Despite the fact that by driveracj, these speakers seem to disappear, leaving sound to float magically in the air, I heard a distinct improvement in presence and clarity with the PX.

Along with its ability to bring out the very best in any venue with virtually effortless operation, the PX comes with an unbelievably low price tag.

Generally when you play clubs, you fight with your equipment in order to be heard clearly. The highs seemed to sparkle more. It was like having an experienced FOH engineer in a box. Bypassing the PX, my speakers sounded a tad dull in comparison.
