A maximizer and limiter together like the Uad prec. or Waves L2 and L3 is doing the same job the difference is that your sound doesn't change in a negative way! And you have full control over your mix by going in to it and change what's wrong.

On the low end a dbx 160x works great. I've had great results with 1176s as well, and even vari-mu type tube compressors. Multing is often necessary.
In the end what helps most is to start out with a good sounding (analog drum machine) source.

I think a precision eq is still a good idea though pre-compression.

Hi, I think you can get excellent results with both. Besides good soft-ware I use several good preamps and analogue compressors. Pre's: SPL Gainstation1, BG no:1 and Focusrite ISAone.
I use the SPL Dynamaxx, LA Audio TCX2 and the SPL VitalizerT with Bass compressor, but also get good results with Waves, Universal Audio and Sonalksis Stuff.

kick shakes the room

you should give it more peak reduction on the compression it will bring the kick right into the middle of the mix where it belongs.
