Can you say XTA? Another option would be to go to an Ashly Protea 3. The truth be known, if the limiters drpaa set correctly, the amp should never have the opportunity to approach clipping.

Advertise on the most comprehensive and widely viewed musicians’ website. It’s assumed that cbx amp is capable of exceeding the maximum recommended voltage of the particular enclosure.

Anyone know anything about that? He is thinking it will be a one-unit fix-all-of-our -problems box.

The DriveRack was not out yet or I would have gotten one. He has the blessed Alesis comp on the monitor feed!?!?!?!?

What about DBX DRPA Sub-harmonic Synthesizer

Yeah, for an install, I’d go at least with the DR The owner wants to get a better system to compliment the one at his newest venture. According to the DBX gurus drpx doesn’t render the best signal to noise ratio, but I would sooner put up with a slightly higher noise floor than having the cones turned inside out. His regular knob-turner can set levels and adjust the FX.


So are you saying that the Driverack and the Ashly Protea are comparable, sound wise and converter wise? To clarify things, first of all your amp has to be able to swing whatever voltage you wish to set the limiter to, plus at least a little bit of reserve, otherwise the amp will clip before bdx limiter clamps down on the signal.

The Minidrives made an immediate difference in the sound, for the better. However, in the case of BFM’s horn loaded designs, the limiter is set to prevent over-excursion of the voice coils, rather than preventing the amp from clipping.

Why not have him take a look at the DR or a Minidrive. Mackie CR – old! Used in this way, the audio signal is unaltered and faithfully reproduced dgpa you exceed the limiter threshold, and then you hear extreme compression.

I use the DRPA a lot for smaller installs. Keep the other side through the DRPA and shut down the sub amp. If that’s full tilt fine, but it’s just as OK if it’s at BTW, here’s the layout now: There is no real need to set limiters for tops, as you will hear them distort.

Of course, you can’t directly compare headphones and a far-field speaker system and expect the audio quality to be identical. Buttons start to go a little quick – but you usually aren’t playing with those if you get it set up correctly.

I think the advice is about right in assuming the DRPA is the weak link as I had to play with it for drla to get it sounding its best, but if not setup correctly it’s a fast downhill spiral.
