My big Q is - 'Why are you wanting to use two EQs in the first place, when one will suffice. But that is not for me to ponder over. :)

How are you trying to hookup the EQs? I have my eq connected between my preamp and amplifier. The other common method is to insert the eq in the tape loop between cassette and amplifier/preamp. Then select the tape loop to put the eq in the signal loop. You then connect your tape player through the tape monitor jacks on the back of the EQ and select this option in otder to play tapes.

If you have two tape inputs, then you can insert one eq into tape 1, and the other eq into tape 2 and choose accordingly. Bear in mind that you dont have to use the tape in order to use either EQ in your system. Just make sure you are using one EQ or the other. If you attempt to use both, then you run into potential signal 'corruption' (i.e. loss of datta or signal pumping, depending on the frequencies enhanced/attentuated).

I have a pioneer VSX D-308 RECIEVER and a electro-voiceevt 2210can it be hooked up together


The Tapco equalizer was a very popular line of equipment which was eventually bought up by Electro-Voice. Could not find any online manuals, however found online images of back panel. It appears to have Tape Ins & Outs.

Unfortunately the equalizer you have is not compatible with the receiver unless you have special cables that have built in transformers. This unit has T&R connectors (tip & ring) meant for professional sound equipment.

On a typical home stereo receiver you would hook up your equalizer with RCA connectors as follows.

1) You take the output of the equalizer and plug it into the input of the receiver.

2) You take the output of the Receiver and plug it into the input of the equalizer.

Start with lower volume and your tape switch on the receiver to the on position. Play with the various controls on your equalizer to

I have a Realistic Model 31-2010 & I want to hook it to my stereo,it's got main-in&out-tape 1 mon&out-tape 2 mon-out,which one do I use to hook up to?


Your 'stereo' should have something like a selectable Tape (VCR/MD/whatever) In/Out pair. THAT is where the EQ's Main In/Out pair connects. INs always go to OUTs. The Tape loops on the EQ are there to 1) replace the one you used to connect IT to the 'stereo' and 2) to provide a way to dub tape-tape with or without EQ.

Yamaha eq70 hook up to yamaha rxv-2600 tried to hook to tape connections do not have main in hook up do have the preout on back of rec help me


The following is some boilerplate I made up that should explain some usage limitations.


Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on a late-model Audio/Video Receiver will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.


The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.


In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).


Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.


The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.


EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.


In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? They would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.



Okay, back to the hook-up:


You have to select any available 'tape loop' containing an overrideable analog 2-channel Out and In. That would be MD Tape, CD-R, VCR1 or DVR/VCR2 in your case.



Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Rec, Line-In;


Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Play , Line-Out.



So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ or any outboard processor for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer

You don't specify the receiver model or type so I'll give you the generic AV/Receiver advice that also applies to stereo receivers. It's probably verkill but the short answer is at the end.

Okay, back to the hook-up: Receiver Tape- or VCR Out to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-In; Receiver Tape- or VCR In from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Tape- or Rec-Out.
If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer's own Tape Monitor loop(s). Many have two to facilitate equalized dubbing between decks.

Do you have any manuals as to how to hook this up to a sony str av-710 receiver?


Well, since the EQ-0100 is a stereo analog component you will be able to use it only for stereo analog source material. Of course, once it's inside the av-710, you can manipulate the sound digitally for soundfield and such.

Basically, hook it in like a tape deck, say, in Tape Deck 2's circuit. Then, whenever you want to use it inline with stereo source material just select Tape 2 Monitor and it will be placed inline. Be advised, any digital programming you want to hear will probably be muted if you monitor any tape deck. That's pretty much normal.

You can slave an analog deck off the EQ as it has a Tape Record/Monitor loops of its own and facilities for making the EQ be on the Record OR the Playack side of it.

Normally, the receiver's internal volume, eq or effects controls will not affect the analog loop out to the EQ-100 or attached decks, BUT, this receiver sends processed effects out to Tape Deck 2, if you should desire to record them (page 29 of the manual). Other REC Out jacks pass conventional UNprocessed sound.

I couldn't find the exact instructions for this model but they all work about the same.

Setting up home stereo/receiver


One of the shortfalls of recievers is there's no line outs from anything before signal gets to the amplifier because the amplifiers built in. This is a longshot......... but if you could hook up the eq to the tape in/ outs then send signal from cd, radio, whatever, to tape and can monitor the tape return ( if the reciever has a tape monitor button ) then it may work.

Connect 5 piece Sony seperates stereo system


OK, this is pretty easy to do. First connect your leads from the component outputs(i.e., tape, cd, phono, etc) to the recievers corresponding input for the device. Then connect the recievers outputs to your equalizer, if it is a seperate eq. Then the outputs of that to your amplifier, then your speakers to that. Be sure all of your wires are connected with the proper polarity. These instructions may be a little different for your exact setup but basically follow the same order minus any device you dont have.

Equilizer


I need more information to help you. The equalizer has to go in between two devices to have an effect.

Like this:
  • Multiple units' (CD Player, Tuner, Cassette, etc.) OUTPUTS to Pre-amplifier INPUTs
  • Pre-Amp OUTPUT to Equalizer INPUT
  • Equalizer OUTPUT to Amplifier INPUT
If you don't have a separate Pre-Amp, you have to try something else. Re-post if this is the case...
