So i hooked my eq up to my jvc deck, the eq turned on fine but the lights to show the levl or whatever are all lit up and there is barely any sound coming out of it. i touched the rca tips to the sides of the female sub output rca's and it started playing louder, sooo, what the ef? should i take the case off and see if something is loose? i did write-off the car it was hooked up to before.

The equalizer I have seen have Line in, line out, tape in, tape out and that is how you utilize a unit like this. The line IN goes to the receivers tape record out. The line out goes to the receivers Tape play in or monitor, The tape deck hooks to the equalizer. The record or input of the tape deck hooks to the EQ record out, the Tape decks output hooks to the EQ's Tape in connectors. All these are stereo so there are left and right sides which you need to keep consistent. Red on a cable means Right, the white or black on cables mean Left or the top RCA connector on most equipment. When playing back a tape the tape monitor is turned on with the receiver and left on. The way you record on tape from any source of the receiver is to select that source and it should go to the equalizer. Then the deck should record that source. To play a tape of the deck hooked to the equalizer then just press the tape monitor button on the EQ otherwise the Equalizer will just act as a loop and equalize any signal source that is coming from the receiver and the tape monitor on the receiver should stay on most of the time. Some equalizers have two tape inputs so you would hook another deck to that input and the owners manual of the equalizer should say how to select buttons to transfer tape signals from one to the other. If you master the concept of inputs and output of audio equipment then this hookup becomes another easy thing to do.
always remember source, amp, then speakers. ex: cd to eq to amp to speakers and it goes: out from cd player into eq, out from eq into amp, out from amp into speakers . hope this makes it easier for you.
Connect the EQ to the Sherwood as if it were a tape deck: EQ's outs connect to receiver's tape ins (play) and EQ's ins connect to receiver's tape outs (record).
Then you hook the tape deck up to the tape ins and outs on the EQ: Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and tape deck ins connect to EQ's tape outs (record).
This will put the EQ in your receiver's tape loop.
The CD player should be connected to the receiver though the CD in's and out's (or if your Sherwood doesn't have a CD in/out, then use AUX or TAPE2).
To hear the EQed signal with all receiver sources (like the CD player) you'll need to engage the 'Tape Monitor' button or switch which will route the tape loop to the speakers.
only hook up to tape monitor or else u wont get an audio signal . .....also hook all equipment to amplifier not eq ...it goes tape cd tuner and any type of external equipment to amp.then find tape 2 it sould be called tape moniter and have a separet botten for u to select it goes record to eq and play from eq
