    I will be running my
    61 Mustang into a
    SansAMP RBI powered by a
    QSC PLX 1602 powering
    two GS112s

    possibly a 13-band furman EQ in there as well

    my question is what kind of compressor would go well for my application? would a dbx 160a work fine? I'm also looking at the Rane DC-24, but I don't know if I *need* all the stuff on the Rane. This is the question at hand.

    I'm not even sure which is the best way to run the compressor to the preamp

    You'd put the compressor between the pre and the power amp. However don't spend your money until you've tried the rest of the setup - Sansamp reckon you don't need a compressor if you're using their kit.
