This would be easier to help you with pictures but I will give you the basics. There should be an input that is labeled either cassette deck or line in. That is where you will plug in the cassette player (that is coming from the output of the player) The cords should be red and white for left and right audio. The back of the tuner should have an output labeled something like preamp out. That will be any number of types of connectors but you should be able to find the right cables. From that output put that in the left/right channel of the amp. It may be labeled something like channel 1 channel 2 input. The speakers will go to the output to the speakers probably also labeled channel 1 and 2. If you post pictures of the backs of all of the equipment I will get more detailed.
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.
The "Front output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the "Main In" on the Clarion EQ. I'm assuming that your Clarion EQ can only deal with one input, and will send the adjusted (equalized) signal out both of the outputs. The "Front output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Front Input" on the 4 channel amp. The "Rear output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Rear Input" on the 4 channel amp. The "Sub output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the Left/Right Input on the Epicenter. The Left/Right Output on the Epicenter would need a Y-splitter for each side, so that you could connect each amp separately. One suggestion would be to use one sub amp for both subs.
Clearly there IS a setup issue. Take serrato out of the loop for the moment and the mixer. Plug each deck (one at a time) into a hifi with a MM Phono input. Are you getting stereo? If yes, you know the decks are ok. Now reset the mixer completey. All eqs and pans including volumes to 12 o clock position and volumes to 0. Make sure you connect deck one to a red and white of one phono input channel. Do not use 1 channel from phono and 1 from line. Use both left and right of the phono chanels. Ok, now hook up the mixer to the amp. Keep the x-fader on channel 1 and concentrate getting a good stereo signal from this one chanel. Now do the same for the other cahnnel.
This should hae helped you to get up an running, if not narrow down the problem.
you can get a amp to work on any deck although u may have to rig it a little bit all u need is sound coming from the stereo and if u will take the rca one end and cut it and strip it u have a wire inside each one and then u have ground wires surrounding the inside wire twirl them up like 1 wire and then strip back the inside wire hook that one to front left pos wire and hook ground wire to front laft neg and do the other rca wire the same just hook it uo to front right or if it has rca jacks on the back of the stereo just hook ur rca wires into them and to the amp
The B+ terminal on the amp goes to the Positive battery terminal with a fuse inline probably at least 60amp for this amp. The GND terminal of the amp goes directly to the chassis of the vehicle (metal) and try to keep the ground 18" or under. The REM terminal of the amp goes to the remote turn on wire from your deck, usually the BLUE wire. Some decks have 2 one for an amp one for a electric antenna. Dont hook it to the power antenna wire or your amp will only work when the radio is on. Won't work with the cd player. Hook the left and right inputs (rca) to your source unit (deck). Hook your speakers to the left and right channels of the amp with the correct polarity (+) (-) . Set the cross over on the amp HP-AP-LP for what ever application you are using it for like subs or components. There is a frequency adjustment for the crossover on the opposite side of the amp. This should be set in accordance with your crossover selector and speaker requirements. The punch bass knob should only be used with a subwoofer application. The left and right gain turn up or down the gains of the amp. (power output) These are set depending on the output voltage of your preouts (RCA) on your deck. A small flat head screw driver can be used. Set them between 1/2 and 3/4 if you dont know but make sure they are the same. Your ready to go. Hope this helps.....
try hooking up your subwoofers in series. then connecting them bridged to the amplifier. as follows: positive from sub#1 into positive of amplifier left channel.. negative sub#1 into positive sub#2. negative sub#2 into negative amplifier right channel. turn the gain down as this will sound pretty loud.
If I got the specs right, your amp is a 4 channel hence the 4 RCA inputs. Probably the simplest would be to feed the 2 X RCA out of the deck to the 1 & 2 RCA in of the amp. This amp has also a line out, feed the amp's lineout back to the 3 & 4 in. This way, all four channels get same input from the deck and you will have identical power to all 4 speakers (front & rear).
An afterthought is to also use the 4 outputs of the deck (since they are there anyway and it is not a good tech practice to leave outputs without load/speakers) and connect 4 mid-range or 4 smaller speakers.
Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
