dbx DriveRack 260 Complete Loudspeaker Management System



Product Description

The DBX DriveRack 260 Equalization and Loudspeaker Management System continues the legacy of DriveRack series. The DBX DriveRack 260 was designed with the purpose and vision of providing state of the art signal processing, while utilizing a simple and intuitive user interface.

This goal has been achieved by offering two independent channels of processing power with a linkable 28 Band Graphic Equalizer, industry-standard dbx stereo compressor module, feedback eliminator and the 120A Subharmonic Synthesizer on the input, with a six channel output system that includes parametric EQs, PeakStopPlus limiters (to provide protection against speaker blowouts) and alignment delay. These features combined with the Wizard setup system and complete DriveWare GUI control represent a methodical design that is guaranteed to deliver optimal, all-inclusive processing in a completely scalable system.

DBX DriveRack 260 Equalization and Loudspeaker Management System Features:

  • Feedback Elimination
  • 2.7 Seconds of Alignment and Zone Delay
  • RS-232 PC GUI control
  • Classic dbx Compression and Limiting
  • Graphic and Parametric EQ
