Compressor reference value

I need some help here:

 

The rule of dB values is "always quote the reference"

I've been trying to work out what the compressor 0dB input level refers to. It doesn't seem to be FullScale, and obviously it's not referred to an analog value sinc that depends on conversion ratio.

Closest I can work out from the calculations and code produced is that 0dB refers to the numerical signal value of 1.0

 

So the +6dB limit should correspond to an absolute value of 2.0?

 

Can anyone confirm my deductions

 

Thanks

Mark
