    I don't understand how works the level input of my dbx160A compressor.
    When i use it with my hartke HA3500 I have a very high level input... so, i can set the treshold at -10db, the ratio at 3:1 and the output gain at +5db.
    But when i use it with my Hartke HA5500, there is a very low level input.
    If i use the same settings, there is no compression !!!

    The two hartke have the same settings :
    tube : 11 o'clock
    solid state : 9 o'clock

    could you help me ?

    Thank you very much
