2x31 EQ and compressor. Too redundant?

    Is this setup OK? Because I've been looking at BBEs for some time, and I hear that the BBE does the same job and good EQ can do. If I became knowledgeable in EQing, could I not get the BBE and still get the same results? Also, how would the 2x31 EQ react with the compressor? Should I put it behind or in front of the compressor (which is a Behringer MDX2200). Also if you could, can you recommend a good rack EQ, I've been looking at the Behringer 2x31, because I would like to keep brands the same, but if there is a different better one, please let me know. Thanks alot, I know I've made a lot of posts, but I'm getting so close to this thing I can taste it. THANKS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!:)

    I seriously doubt you'll get the same results with an EQ. The BBE works with phase correction and manipulation (I think), that's different from an EQ, which only cuts and boosts frequency bands. An Exciter can even synthesize new overtones, for example.
    You could use a different Exciter, e.g. a SPL Vitalizer.

    If you want to keep it Behringer, take a look at the Dualfex and Ultrafex series:

    A 2x32 band is aimed for studio/PA use, and is a little too complicated for stage use IME.
