Currently have an old Driverack PA on a JBL Sound Power rig. Generally I have been happy with it as it does everything (and more) than I need (basically I just use a little eq & the xover). However I have found that it is not hard at all for signal to blow past the limiters and clip the amps. Although the rig is great, the gain structure is set so that the average level is just below amp clipping in order to achieve the desired volume in the room. Obviously this leaves not much headroom for snare & kick hits (or anything for that matter). I have expressed that the club might invest in more power or speakers, but that is not an option at this point.So best thing I can come up with is to try and sell the DRPA and look into a different DSP with a similar price range but with a more brick wall limiter. I have lurked around and found suggestions for the BBE ds26, and Xilica XD series (although I'm not sure what the price range of those units are) for similar situations. Thoughts? Thanks!!
There isn't Enough Rig for the Gig™.Is the peak clipping damaging the speakers? Is the clipping sustained?What makes you think any processor in the same price range will be demonstrably better than the DR?
If you set yourself up so that the mixer is at clip just before the amps you KNOW when your out of gas.. so to speak.
