It sounds like you want to use the external amp rather than the internal one. If that is the case, just connect the output of the EQ to the input of the external amp. All you are doing is inserting the EQ between the amp stages now. Using the mx-1 rather than the internal amp is no different.

I have an rx-v1000 w/ an adc equalizer ran in and out of the amp w/ a couple of splitters coming out of the eq and it seems to work great. I have even thought about splitting it again to run an m-80. My goal is to run 2 12'' on my m70, 2 15'' on the m-80 and 2 8'' on my stereo receiver. I have this set up half way and wouldn't mind any feedback from some experts out there.

I HAVE A BSR 3000 EQ, A TECHNICS POWER AMP SE-9021K,AND A TECHNICS SU-9011K PRE AMP HOW DO I HOOK IT ALL UP?


Very easy.

SOURCE > PRE-AMP > EQUALIZER > POWER AMP.

Not sure why you want to do it, though. Your pre-amp already has an abundance of sophisticated tone controls and filters.

If I might venture a guess, you are trying to correct some serious deficit in your speakers or in your source. If you need sophisticated tone controls, filters, AND an equalizer, you need to ask yourself why ... and fix that problem.

I have a Crest Audio V900, a set of Bose 901, a Gemini EQ-3000. Do I need a PREAMP? Or can I hook up the Crest AMP to the Equalizer?


You could use the EQ but it won;t sound as good as it will with a pre amp and also could make it a bit trickier when adjusting the volume and getting it to sound right.

I have a Yamaha M65 520w power amp, a HTR 5630 210w EQ and a GE-60 Rcvr all in excellent condition. I'm having difficulty hooking them all up to each other and 2 prs of speakers. I'm have 2 Cerwin Vega CLS...


First of all it is important when you are using such good quality system to have an idea of the room. The accoustic quality of the room is a great factorr as even the best system may sound poor. Hence I owul like you to firrst rearrange your system with the Cerwin in the front and the DCM in the rear. Now the most IMPORTANT POINT you must be careful is to connect your speakers with the corrrect Phasing. The positive and negative must be correct , if not the sound will cancel off. So test this out. Connection of the L&R inputs must be also in order without crossing over from the source to the equaliser to the main amp. Now if you have set the equaliser right check for gain in each frequency. If not try to disconnect the equaliser and connect source to amplifier directly and test. make a assesment for good quality. You can also try to reverse ONE of the rear speakers for any improvement. I hope this advice helps you. Good day

Yamaha receiver problems


If you're using the same turntable on both I'd say you see the smoking gun. I doubt it actually killed anything. Perhaps the cartridge wiring or connections on the TT are flaky. What type of TT is it?

Was it working normally before all of this?

I would like to know how to connect my Bose 901 to my Yamaha RX-V765 AV Receiver.


Ahhh, the good ole Bose 901. (I like those)... And you want to connect them to the Yamaha RX-V765 AV receiver. That should be a piece of cake. I assume you only have two Bose 901 cabinets. If so, you simply need to connect one end of your speaker wires to the terminals found on the 901 cabinets, and the other end of the speaker wires need to go to the Front Left and Front Right speaker outputs of the RX-V765. The RX-V765 is a 7 channel surround receiver. Weather you run it as a 7 channel theatre or as a more classic 2 speaker configuration, you will want to run the 901 cabs from the Front L and Front R speaker outputs, unless for some reason you want to specifically use them for any of the surround channels in which case it will not harm anything if you use them for surrounds - it's just that if you're simply wanting to use them as your principal speakers, you want Front L and Front R.
So connect them as I explained, power the receiver up, put on your favorite CD and enjoy!

Yamaha RX-797 iPod Integration


I have a question first... are the 901's amplified by a separate amp as they should be in a multi-channel (non-stereo) setup?

Better yet read the following then decide if you have iy set up right to begin with. If so, I'd just treat the Ipod or Mac as auxilliary inputs on the receiver. :

I wrote most of this for a different receiver, but if you account for minor differences to your receiver this will work just fine.

There's good news and bad news. The bad news you need a separate amp because a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's attached as recommended for a standard stereo receiver will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. The other speakers around the room are not designed to receive its Active Equalization and if you engage your Tape Monitor you will NOT BE ABLE TO HEAR DIGITAL sources at all. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on modern AV receivers it disables any digital inputs so you really can't use the Tape Monitor circuit or attached devices for modern digital sources. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread 2-channel analog source material around the room. I do.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what you want to do and it works great!

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers.

You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.

Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.

Write off the Tape Out as an input if you use it to extract the Front L&R channels. DO NOT monitor it or you'll chop the 901's out of the signal path AND kill any digital source audio in the receiver.

Yamaha Dsp-A1000 5 ch amp Bought a used amp will be hooked to an awia reciever and speakers also have two subwoofers need help to install correctly witch connections to use


if you wanted to use your receiver as your controller and source then try to find out the receivber has got a bridge (jumper) between the pre-amp stage and the power amp stage. if your receiver does not have that, then you can just connect your receiver tape record out to one of your DSP inputs. subwoofers, the DSP has got a sub woofer out connector. you can use that (RCA type) to your sub woofers. put in series because DSP has got only one output for sub. or, you can connect your subs directly to the mains speakers, parallel connections. maybe one sub to your left and the other to your right channel.

Bose 901 equalizer


Hi Mark, had a look for a manual on your Yamaha, but not got to one as yet. Does it have any RCA connections on the back marked as preout prein? best place to put the 901 EQ is in line with L and R front channels at this preout prein point.

Some amps DO NOT HAVE IT. If our does not, then you could connect it in the tape loop, tape out(rec) to input on the EQ. and the output of the EQ connected to tape in(play), but connected like this, the EQ would affect the tone across all channels(unless you are just running a stereo rig, then this way works great!!) Try this and you may just have solved you problem anyway.
