Hands-On Review: dbx DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer | The HUB

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 Taking up one rackspace, the DriveRack PX weighs four pounds and has an expensive look and feel. Inside, the PX features a subharmonic synthesizer that extends bass response, stereo band graphic EQ, stereo multi-band parametric EQ, Dbs limiters, a pink noise generator, and a classic dbx compressor.

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. To give it the ease-of-use acid test, I decided to fly without a net no manual.

Then the PX automatically adjusts EQ, helps you set gain, and lets you choose the number up to 12 and width of stereo notch dgiverack for feedback reduction. Easier still, you can bypass the setup wizard and go directly to the Driverak and AFS Advanced Feedback Suppression wizards via 25 factory presets that support the most popular powered loudspeakers.

You can store these settings in 25 user locations for later recall when you come back to play the same room.

I performed two tests with the DriveRack PX. The first lx with my band playing in three different clubs, the second was in my home studio. With the band, we yanked our graphic EQ, feedback suppressor, and compressors from the rack and replaced them with the PX. The first thing we noticed was a much cleaner signal. Less gear in the signal path means less ddiverack. During our sound check, we were stunned by the difference.

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. We experienced the same thing in each club. It was like having an experienced FOH engineer in a box. The next test was at my home studio. Putting the PX in front of my muy-pricey active monitors was surprising to say dxb least.

Despite the fact that by drivfrack, 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. The highs seemed to sparkle more.


Bypassing the PX, my speakers sounded a tad dull in comparison. While this box is designed primarily for live performance, I would seriously consider one for home studios set up in spare rooms.

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

E-mail required, but will not display. 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. 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.

I’m dgx to cover all the bases, but have the most compact rack setup possible. All of the other mixers I’m looking into are larger, where the Yamaha I believe is a 19″ rack mountable unit. Any input would be great. Simply use the left side of the DriveRack with nothing connected on the right side. Arturo martinez
