dbx DriveRack VENU360 Complete Loudspeaker Management System
All the processing needed to supercharge your sound system. Now with complete control from your mobile device.
dbx took the dominant dbx DriveRack® 260, improved its features, and added more. The result?
The 3 input, 6 output dbx DriveRack VENU360.
The dbx DriveRack VENU360 provides all the processing and flexibility you need between your mixer and amplifiers to optimize and protect your loudspeakers. With the latest advancements in dbx’s proprietary AutoEQ™ and AFS™ algorithms, additional input channels, ethernet control via an Android,® iOS,® Mac,® or Windows® device, and updated wizards, the dbx DriveRack VENU360 continues the dbx DriveRack legacy of great-sounding, powerful, and affordable loudspeaker management processors, for a whole new generation.
New, improved AutoEQ algorithm ensures an extremely accurate, fast, and non-intrusive automatic EQ experience.
With a RTA Mic “listening” to your room, the updated dbx DriveRack VENU360 AutoEQ algorithm sets speaker levels and room EQ automatically in a matter of seconds using sine sweeps. This means room adjustments can now be made very quickly, without subjecting the audience to annoying, lengthy broadcasts of pink noise.
The AutoEQ is now located in the output processing stage, which means independent sections of a system can be equalized automatically. This allows AutoEQ to be used on the FOH system as well as the stage monitors, zones and tower delays!
Enhanced AFS™ Feedback Elimination
Enhanced AFS™ algorithm for faster, more precise feedback elimination, without adversely affecting your system’s tone.
Nothing turns audiences away like annoying and potentially painful audio feedback. Fortunately, dbx engineers have revisited their already-stellar Advanced Feedback Suppression algorithm and made it work even better. The dbx DriveRack VENU360 listens for and anticipates feedback and automatically removes it before it even has a chance, while never altering your sound.
Updated Wizard Setup Functions
Updated Wizards make initial set up easy, while ensuring speaker tunings and other settings are up-to-date.
Wizard functions in the dbx DriveRack VENU360 guide you through easy, step-by-step processes to help you get the most from your loudspeaker system. The Wizards help you configure routing, level balancing, AutoEQ, Advanced Feedback Suppression, and provide access to updated speaker tunings – available for most major speaker brands. The addition of a Monitor Wizard makes it easy to configure and optimize stage monitors.
Connect to the dbx DriveRack VENU360 through your local network with your Android, iOS, Mac, or Windows device to customize the sound of your loudspeaker system so it sounds and performs optimally. The app lets you directly manipulate the Compressor, Graphic EQ, Parametric EQ, Crossover settings, Speaker profiles, and more with its attractive, easy-to-use graphical user interface.
