DBx 160X

I just bought an DBx 160X and its acting a bit weird.

I suspect that the jumpers on the back have been moved around, so im wondering if anyone here can tell me what the jumpers are for and how they should be set.

Maybe its just broken but this is the way it operates.

With a healthy signal input , the only way to get any compression at all is when in hard knee mode and the threshold set to -40 dBm??
And even then i only manage to get about 10 dB GR.

The weirdest part being that it seems like when i turn up the output i get more compression??
Anyways its acting pretty strange and some assistance with the jumpers might help.

Forget it ..the jumpers were set wrong so the detectors were picking up the output..

Its working perfectly now,got it for 70 $..
