will a driverack pa do this?
« on: January 27, 2010, 02:04:20 pm »

Ive been contracted to add a delay line to an existing system in a gymnasium.  It has a driverack that is just providing system control of a pair of zx5's running full range.  Can i program a driverack PA so that another of the crossover outputs is also full range but delayed?

Read the manual, didnt see that this was possible but it seems like it should be.

thanks

Yes, but the driverack PA has very limited delay options... if I remember correctly, there is no delay on the inputs and about 10ms available on the outputs.

Yup.....not enough delay for anything more than driver alignment.

The Peavey IPR DSP 1600 has delay and amplifier in one cheap package.

I've picked up a few of these now on eBay for less then $30 ... shipped!! Fully working, out of installs, just need some cleaning, but they are out there for very very little money. Even got one out of mile high stadium in Denver... good times.

Brings back memories, I think I paid over $1000 for the one I owned.
DDL memory was expensive back in the mid 1980s.

If we're talking used/old gear, Yamaha's DEQ7 is a pretty handy digital eq with high/low/bandpass options and a significant delay for towers, etc.  If your being contracted you no doubt are (or should be) looking for new products with a warranty.  The DR260 has 2.7 seconds of alignment/zone delay.  Or you could go digital with Nexia, Penton, BSS, etc.
