"The new version 2.0 firmware provides greater flexibility and power to live sound engineers." said Rob Urry, president of Harman Music Group. "It's very easy to use and allows for total control of all aspects of loudspeaker management." and engineers. Units feature complete EQ, crossover and compressor/limiter technology and are designed to be the only signal processors necessary between mixing consoles and powered amplifiers.

The DriveWare software allows an engineer to control and edit parameters on multiple DriveRack units in a large venue all from one centrally located PC. Networked units, depicted graphically on the PC, can be easily accessed and controlled by clicking on a unit's image.
