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
  • Auto-EQ Function
  • Full Bandpass, Crossover, and Routing Configurations
  • Auto Gain Control
  • Pink Noise Generator and fulltime RTA
  • Setup Wizard with JBL speaker and Crown Power Amplifier Tunings
  • Security Lockout
  • Wall Panel Control Inputs
There is a reason that Tour Sound Professionals and discriminating Audio Contractors choose dbx DriveRack products for their high-end tours and installs. The DriveRack products provide the tools that ensure that the system sounds its very best. With the introduction of the DriveRack 260, the heritage of unrivaled system/loudspeaker control continues.

The DBX DriveRack 260 capitalizes on the road tested and contractor approved nature of the other products in the DriveRack line. The DriveRack 260 provides full bandpass and crossover configurations as well as independent output processing and a full time RTA for live sound applications. Contractors will appreciate its control inputs for wall-panel logic control and the patent-pending Advanced Feedback Suppression (AFS).

General
Your general opinion of this product.
I've used analog DBX compressors, EQ's and crossovers in the past but this takes care of EVERYTHING in one rack space. I will admit that if you're not a "techie" or digital person, this will take a while to learn. What I like most about the 260 are limiters and individual outputs. The limiter can be set so that no matter what, you'll never clip (unless you push everything into continuous clipping then you'll see the word "clip" pop up on the screen). With the outputs, unlike past drive racks, you can set the outputs to whatever you want them to be whether its low, mid or high. Another cool feature about this product to me is the option of using delay. Sometimes but not always when I am doing an event, I put satellite speakers around the room and the delay comes in handy so they can be in sync with the FOH.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It's very sturdy. I've had it for 4 years and its been in a rack that gets moved around almost every week.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
It takes a while to get accustomed to all of the features but if you know frequencies, crossover points and compression ratios, you'll be fine. The buttons on the face let you know which menu/page you are in.
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The best features are the Delay, Limiter, Sub-harmonic synthesizer, independent outputs, pink noise generator, Room Wizard and the option to set everything using a PC.
Sound
How is the tone?
I love the sound even when i'm hitting compression thresholds. It sounds natural compared to stuff i've used in the past.
