Hands-On Review: dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer
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. Despite the fact that by themselves, 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.
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. All of the other mixers I’m looking into are larger, where the Yamaha I believe is a 19″ rack mountable unit. We experienced the same thing in each club. E-mail required, but will not display. How does the traveling band get a consistently great sound from gig to gig, so you can always sound and play your best?

It was like having an experienced FOH engineer in a box. I’m trying to cover all the bases, but have drivwrack most compact rack setup possible. The next test was at my home studio. I performed two tests with the DriveRack PX. Signal Processors PA Systems.
While this box is designed primarily for live performance, I would seriously consider one for home studios set up in spare rooms. Bypassing the PX, my speakers sounded a tad dull in comparison.

During our sound check, we were stunned by the difference. Putting the PX in front of my muy-pricey active monitors was surprising to say the least.

Simply use the left side of the DriveRack with nothing connected on the right side. To give it the ease-of-use acid test, I decided to fly without a net no manual.

The drivsrack system, that is. With the band, we yanked our graphic EQ, feedback suppressor, and compressors from the rack and replaced them with the PX. Then the PX automatically adjusts EQ, helps you set gain, and lets you choose the number up to 12 and width of stereo notch filters for feedback reduction.
You can store these settings in 25 user locations for later recall when you come back to play the same room. Inside, the PX features a subharmonic synthesizer that extends bass response, stereo dbd graphic EQ, stereo multi-band parametric EQ, PeakPlus limiters, a pink noise generator, and a classic dbx compressor.
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 first was with my band playing in three different clubs, the second was in my ddriverack studio.
Easier still, you can bypass the setup wizard and drivreack directly to the Auto-EQ and AFS Advanced Feedback Suppression wizards via 25 factory presets that support the most popular powered loudspeakers. Taking up one rackspace, the DriveRack PX weighs four pounds and has an expensive look and feel.
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.
