Question about AudioControl EQL 13-Band Car Equalizer

3 Answers

HOOKING UP??? I just wanted to know how to hook my Audiocontrol eq II up. It's older but it's still an Audiocontrol unit. I'm running a Autotek MX1500.1, four Audiophonic ADF-272 12's (600rms/1200peak), and a JVC KD-LH300 head unit. What is the correct way of installing this unit and also, where in the trunk can I install it? I'm driving an old school 4-door 1985 Buick Lesabre.

    I want to hook-up a Super Sound 200 watt car amp rated at 4 ohms with a 7 band Proline car graphic equalizer Model GP-870XII rated at 400 watts. The manual describes it as "Low Impedance Floating Ground Input" and "High Impedance AUX Input".

    My deck is a DVD player with both line and speaker output.

    Can you please guide me on how to properly hook up all these together with a 200 watt subwoofer 2 mid range and 2 tweeters?

    Thank you for your attention and kind advice.

An eq has to plug into and amplifier so if you only have 1 amp, you go from the rca output from your deck into the eq, then into your amp. The power you should be able to parallel right from the remote, 12+, and ground from the amp. Your eq will only equalize your subwoofer unless your mids and highs were hooked up to amplifiers too. If this helps, be sure to leave me good feedback. Dan

Where is pre out im having trouble hooking up amp and eq

You have to use the TAPE 2 (or monitor) on the receiver. It will take two sets of RCA cables. Both the receiver and the EQ will have an input and an output.

  • Run the output/REC (from TAPE 2) to the input on the EQ.
  • Then, run the input from the receiver (TAPE 2 again) to the output on the EQ.
The EQ will have another 2 sets of RCA jacks to hook up a second tape deck (because you used the jacks on the receiver for the EQ). You don't have to hook anything to these if you don't want to, or don't have a second tape deck.

The receiver will have a monitor button, which most of the time is labeled as TAPE 2/MONITOR. Select whatever input you want to use (CD, Tuner, Aux, etc.), then press the MONITOR/TAPE 2 button. When that is on, the EQ will be in the audio chain - you'll be able to use the EQ to adjust the sound. If you turn the MONITOR off it will take the EQ out of the audio chain - the EQ settings won't affect the sound.

Keep in mind, the EQ will also have a button to select the TAPE 2 input. If you have a second tape deck hooked up to the EQ, this is how to use it. Make sure that the tape input is off on the EQ, if you aren't listening to that second tape deck.

I have the Nitro BMWX 483 4 channel amp, BMWX 484 2channel amp , and I have the Nitro BMWX 424 4 band EQ !! Now what I'm trying to do is hook up both amps together to the EQ ! So far, I hav the BMWX...

From what I have read about this EQ it is just for subsonic frequencies. You really don't want to run your components through this EQ. Leave the components running off of the 4 channel amp and your sub box on the two channel with the EQ in series between your head unit and the sub amp.

start with the tuner, hook up the equalizer to the tuner, then on the rear of the equilizer hook up all the peripherals except the amps which will go to the tuner outputs and all will feed thru the tuner to the amps and out to the speakers

I am keyboard player and i want hook up an equalizer to the system where do i hook it up to

If you're only using the keyboard, connect the keyboard output to the EQ input, and EQ output to your amp.

If you have multiple instruments and a mixer, run mixer output to EQ input, EQ output to amp.

More info, let me know.

Hook EQ to my mixer

I assume you want to put the EQ on the mains output of the mixer -- is that correct?

Just run the left/right out from the mixer to the left/right in on the EQ, then run the left/right out on the EQ to your amp.

Cant get equalizer to work with my receiver

This might work fish76, The EQ needs a in & out source to operate correctly? If you have audio device connected to an aux input disconnect that & connect the EQ to that audio device & then plug the EQ to the Sony receiver AUX input. The tape monitor is the most important source for hooking up an EQ device, so you are very limited on a total receiver or amp tonal connection source. The bottom line is you can only use the EQ if another audio source to plug into it & the EQ plugs to your pre-amp input on the back of your rec or amp

If this occurs with the head unit plugged directly into the amp (no signal processors inline, you probably have open shields on the head unit.

To check the shield ground, disconnect all RCA cables from the head unit and measure the resistance between the RCA shield on the head unit and the case of the head unit. It should read ~0 ohms.
