dbx DriveRack 260 2x6 Loudspeaker Management Processor


    The DriveRack 260 has been designed to provide "Everything you need between the mixer and the power amps". From the powerful DSP modules to the multiple control surfaces, the 260 provides all the processing and control necessary for both installation and live use.

    Additionally, the Wizard function enables any user to quickly set up and use the 260 to its full potential by streamlining the setup process and providing a menu based setup procedure that includes system setup and configuration, Auto-EQ, and Advanced Feedback Suppression (AFS) setup.

    The 260 offers two inputs and six outputs on XLR connectors. Each input channel provides a choice of EQ, either a 9-band Parametric or a 28-band Graphic EQ. Each input channel also boasts two selectable insert processors with a selection of Notch Filtering, classic dbx Compression, Auto Gain Control, Sub-Harmonic Synthesis, or our own patent-pending Advanced Feedback Suppression (AFS).

    The DriveRack 260 also offers a configurable Delay with 2.7 seconds of total delay time. The 260 provides full Bandpass and Crossover filtering and routing including Bessel, Butterworth and Linkwitz-Riley topologies. There is Parametric EQ available on each output as well as dbx PeakStopPlus Limiting.

    The 260 provides a full-time RTA for live sound applications, while contractors will appreciate its control inputs for wall-panel logic and volume control.
