depends on the pa and where you need to go. the output on my qs7 is pretty low (i assume they all are) so any distance means a 1/4" guitar-like cable and potential noise/etc. though i have played in some situations where i went strait to the board...most boards can probably "pad" you to the right level or provide you a "line level" input. if there is a snake involved (don't mean the sound guy, but the clump of wires to carry the mic.s to the back of the room) or the board does not have a 1/4" line in, a di (or direct input box) is the way to go.
the box can either go between your qs and your amp or out of your amp if it supports it.
hope that helps. ....andy
