The DCX2496 ULTRADRIVE PRO from Behringer is a digital loudspeaker management system, that provides excellent audio quality, along with a comprehensive feature list. It allows for precise set-up of multiple loudspeaker arrays, suitable for live sound, fixed installations that require control of loudspeaker systems, and other contractor-installed applications.
Each of the three-inputs and six-outputs have fixed processing blocks, including gain, delay, EQ and dynamic EQ on the input channels, and gain, crossover, EQs, limiter and delays on the output side. One of the inputs can accept a stereo AES/EBU digital signal. An integrated sample rate converter assists in accepting various sample rates. Additionally, an internal input-sum signal is easily set-up.
Four different mono and stereo output operating modes are available, all with individual crossover filter types with selectable roll-off characteristics. Input and output delays allow for time adjusting signals to compensate for ambient temperature changes or for adjusting arrival time differences for individual speaker clusters. EQs can be used for both musical enhancement or for level-dependent equalization. Brick-wall limiters guarantee speaker protection.
Remote control of one or several units can be accomplished utilizing downloadable software for a Windows based computer. Set-ups can be saved to the software, or to an optional PCMCIA card for the ultimate in portability. Servo-balanced, gold-plated XLR connectors for all inputs and outputs guarantee excellent connectivity.
