Hi zig.
I've never checked, but i don't think it has that type of connectivity. Mine is like 9 years old.
It does have the rs 232 serial port for pc hookup and another port for master/slave.
You should be able to configure any of the input/ ouput channels with any eq/ x-over type you want as all the driverack models have 6 outputs like the dcx2496.

NOTE: We have been moving away from 4-way (and towards 3-way active, or even some having passive filtering in the top) with a lot of our more recent Paraflex rigs but If wanting to process a 4-way rig in stereo on a budget then the Bunker Audio Speaker Management DSP unit (8ch out DSP) could be a way to make that possible ........ I don't have any personal experience with the product but i have been told that it is great for the price:

Bunker Audio PowerDrive BPD-1 Plus

The sound is fantastic. I went hog wild with the measurement mic on top of a hill in Morro Bay last weekend. Frequency response is exactly what was advertised and it was really easy to EQ and integrate with the rest of the system. There was a big cancellation happening between the paraflex and the kick and once I added the right delay settings every kick drum felt like being jabbed in the sternum with a boxing glove when standing close to a stack. Excursion was under control all night even with huge bass drops that went very low. They are also surprisingly directional so when we pointed them towards a hill we were on instead of the valley below us it made a substantial difference.

Ziggurat,
So glad to hear that you are enjoying these Type "C" Classic Paraflex subs! Thank You so much for the photos/video and the review/report

JohnnyJo,

We chose to revise the Paraflex top design with multiple 8s .... The version with four 8s vertical per cabinet doesn't bring our fundamental tuning into the optimal range but our most current Paraflex 2x8 is trap shaped and makes a great splayed array when used in multiples placed by side by side (the trap shape gives us a useful splay angle for increased horizontal coverage) .. . .... If you would prefer to create Line-Source arrays then be sure to have a look at our recent Paraflex 1x12 top plan update (released just recently) as it is an excellent choice for stacking multiples .

Resko,
It is a pleasure to work with you and I am looking forward to the future!
I sense that there may be more of your Wisconsin Paraflex projects in the pipeline .
