    I bought a DBX 160X and I am having trouble getting the lights to show that the signal is above threshhold. (the light under "Threshhold" is always green and never turns red). I tried messing with the meter calibration adjustment knob, but I am not sure if it is having any effects. Did I get a bad unit, or am I doing something wrong?

    if it helps, I have the DBX 160X connected to a SWR Studio 220 amp using the Tip ring sleeve jacks. I noticed that there are no jumpers on the terminal block where it says to consult manual before removing DET jumpers.
