    I'm using an SVT3 Pro as a preamp, a QSC PLX poweramp, Aphex 651 compressor and a Sonic maximizer. I was told to go preamp- sonic-compressor- poweramp. Is this the best chain? Is it better to put the sonic max after the compressor?:confused:

    Preamp -> compressor -> maximiser -> poweramp
     
  3. Correct.

    I use a compressor with a BBE.

    preamp-->compressor-->BBE-->amp

    The BBE goes last.

    It sounds the best because your recovering any lost highes grabbed by the compressor.
