    Doesn't the SVT 4PRO already have a built-in compressor?

    And I'm sure it's higher quality than the Behringer.

    Pages 12 and 13 of the manual. You use either the effects loop or the preamp out/power amp in jacks.

    For the loop, you go loop send --> Behringer input
    Behringer output --> loop return jack.

    For the other way, go
    preamp output --> Behr input
    Behr output --> power amp in.

    Not much difference between these two methods, in this specific case. With the loop, you can buy a separate footswitch to bypass the effect.
