First outboard EQ is my routing correct?

My chain will be Stam Audio SA-87->Empirical Labs EL-9 Mike-E->Black Lion Audio Seventeen Fet Compressor->Warm Audio EQP-WA->M-Audio Profire 610. I'm only recording vocals.

I was thinking Stam Audio SA-87---Mic Input of Mike-E---Output of Mike-E into the output of Warm Audio EQP---Output of Warm Audio EQP---Input of Black Lion Audio Seventeen Fet Compressor---Output of Black Lion Audio Seventeen Fet Compressor into---Line input on the back of M-Audio Profire 610. Would this be correct and will this technically put the EQ before the BLA Fet Compressor?

Hey guys so my gear arrived yesterday and I set it up etc as mentioned above. I'm having trouble getting a useable sound. It seems that the compressor on the EL9 Mike E and the BLA is a bit much. This is even at low ratios. Even using the mix knob on both the sound isn't what I thought it would be(Sounds super compressed). I am going to play with it a bit more when I get home. Maybe routing it before the EQ would make a difference? I'm thinking the two compressors or competing somehow. I'm not sure how to work around this.

Hey. I don't know if I missed something but why don't you just lower the gain on the preamp?
