The standard chain for a Sound Reinforcement System is as follows:
Inputs > Mixing Console > Amplifier > Speakers
Please note: outboard devices like equalizers and limiters may be either "inserted" through insert points affiliated with the outputs of the mixing console or "inline" with cabling that goes directly from the outputs of the mixing console to the inputs of the outboard device.
