DriveRack PA+ set up

#1 Post by J_Dunavin » Wed Jul 19, 2017 12:51 pm

In an effort to set voltage at the amp, I ran a 50 hz tone through my mixer and into the driverack, with amp gains all the way down. I was going to set the output of the mixer, then drive rack and had my meter ready to go at the amp, but when I tried to increase the output of the drive rack, the vu meter would show an increase followed by a decrease in the sub out after a sec or two.
Currently the compressor and limiters are off and the test tone was well within my crossover passband..... why would the driverack limit my output?


EDIT:
After reading the manual, perhaps I need to redo the "setup" wizard. I was trying to adjust output through the crossover page, I mean there is a gain adjustment on the crossover page....

Don't use that thing.....

Do a custom setup and turn the amps all the way up. Auto EQ is good, but the setup wizard will have you turning amps up and down.....
