    im re-setting my rig for better results, and i need some advice in how to set up the controls in my compressor.

    i was using a yamaha crossover but now im tryimg out a dbx 215 EQ as a crossover, using 1 channel for each band of frquencys. im also using a dbx 266XL compressor for a multi band compression.

    do you think i should put 1st the EQ or the compressor in each band?

    also, my 2 cabs are a SWR goliath jr 2x10 and a yamaha 1x18. wich do you think will be the best frequency to make the cut?

    and the last question is which attrack and release do you guys recommend me for the low end cab?

    thancks for any other input!
  2. there's no rules to follow, just do what sounds good to you.

    I would run the EQ's before the compressors, because this way the compressors can act on the boosted frequencys coming from the EQ.

    The other stuff, I have no opinion on as I don't know those cabs.
