Question about ADC Kentrox SS-315 Home Equalizer

Open Question

ADC SS-315 EQ lost sound in one channel

Recently got my HI system out of 10 year's storage (in UK), shipped to Melbourne AU. Everything works fine, except my EQ started intermittently cutting out in one channel .. now gone completely.

Swapping L-R inputs shows that it's the ADC that's got the problem.

Anybody know which component(s) may be at fault?
or have a circuit diagram?

I have skills in re-soldering capacitors, thyristors, etc..

Any advice appreciated - even if a referrence to recommended repairer in Melbourne.
Many thanks,
Doug

Hello,i recently purchased a graphic equalizer on ebay to work in conjuction with a tape deck, two turntables,two cd players,two mics and a mixer.The model of the unit is a ADC SS-115,i got it home...


I admire your desire to make a nice piece of classic gear whole again but the cost of simply replacing it with a fully functional one is probably less.

Having owned an old Sound Shaper with mechanical sliders I can tell you that you will eventually start to encounter noisy contacts and slider that will drive you crazy. I only used mine for recording and eventually I could never trust the sliders to move without inducing noise. I eventually got an ADC SS-525X with all electronic sliders, Real Time Analyzer/EQ display, 4 curve memories, remote control and life is good.

Surf over to eBay and look around.

There's one SS-525X with no mention of the Remote or calibration mic (which I have but never used anyway). The display lights up in that bright Fluorescent Blue....

Hi, I have just shipped a SHARP LC-37AD1E tv over from the UK (where it worked fine!) It is one of the early models that has a separate media box. It has tuned in fine to the Australian channels BUT there...


No. The audio and video signal must be decoded first before you can connect it to the home theater system. Your Australian channels might be different from the UK's. Try a decoder box made for Australian stations.

Bose 901 Active EQ Loop


There's good news and bad news. The bad news is that a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. For one thing, the other speakers around the room are not designed to recieve its Active Equalization and for another, if you engage your Tape Monitor you will not be able to play digital sources. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on my receiver it disables any digital inputs.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying 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 the dbx and BSR in tandem with each through the tape monitor loop on the receiver but be advised you can only use them on analog source stero material. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread the sound around the room.

At my PC workstation across the room I have a stack of analog processors and sources including dbx 3bx-ds, dbx 120x-ds, BSR Spatial Enhancer, BBE 462 Sonic Maximizer, SS-525x EQ, Carver C-9, dbx-224x, JVC cassette deck, Dual 1249 Turntable running through a Garrard MRM-101 Preamp, Pioneer PDR-509 CD Recorder and the Media Center PC stereo analog channels all running through a dbx 400x Program Route Selector (a godsend) which is attached to my ONE TAPE MONITOR on my Pioneer VSX-36TX Receiver. Of course, I have some of my analog processors running in tandem, too, since the 224x only has three processor and three tape loops.

For listening/recording anything 2-channel analog I engage the stack through the Tape Monitor. For everything else I turn the Tape Monitor off. The nice thing about the stack being separate is that I can doodle with recording and use headphones while the TV/DVD/Blu-Ray do something else.

I cannot get the functions on the remote to operate.ie pbass dsp/eq etc?


The P.BASS function is only available with 2 channel LPCM sources such as mp3,Divx,cd
and wma. Press P.BASS button and "POWER BASS ON" will be displayed on the screen.
The P.bass does not work with DSP/EQ or DOLBY PRO LOGIC ll modes.
If you press P.BASS in the DSP/EQ mode, the DSP/EQ mode is automatically shut off and the P. BASS function comes on.
The DSP/EQ function is only available in STEREO mode.
Press the PL ii mode button to show STEREO on the display.
This feature works with CDs, MP3-CDs, 2 channel DVD-Audio, DivX and Dolby Digital discs.
When playing a DVD disc encoded with two or more channels, multi-channel mode will be selected automatically and DSP/EQ function does not work.

Can I still used this equipment


Hi Jerome

You will need either a pre-in pre-out connection on the amp to use, A vcr in/out loop can be used in lieu of a "tape" loop. Or alternatively you can put the EQ in line with the bit of gear you want to EQ. In this day and age, of "many more than stereo" systems, a 2 channel EQ has much less application. Although this seems to "outdate" a piece of gear, most stuff from yesteryear still sounds great, so why stop using it. Good Luck and happy listening. A "FixYa" rating from you would help my profile. I am happy to answer any questions you may still have, put them in here and I shall get back to you.

Graphic equalizer


In general all equalizers, being designed to be in a Tape Monitor loop, have the option to Equalize either the Source or the Tape or nothing. Check for that control and toggle it. My old ADC SS-525X has pushbuttons whose settings (Tape/Source) are not easily determined. I always have to play around with it to know which is selected.

I'm betting your EQ is processing the program that would head out to an attached tape deck.
