Question about Yamaha Audio Players & Recorders
Have been doing this a bit and seemed simple enough, but all I'm getting is power and no signal read. Am using Y splitters with multiple devices on amplifier main in; left and right from main in to EQ line out + left and right from EQ line in to receiver main out. Unit powers up and I get a hissing; no response to sliders +12 to -12 in gain or loss. Sliders light but spectrum analyzer displays nothing.

Hook the signal source to the equalizer input and the equalizer output signal to one of the signal inputs on your amp. This is one way, but this way only one signal source will go through the equalizer (unless it has several signal inputs and a source selector switch).
The other way (inserting the equalizer between the preamp and the main amp) is:
If your amp has RCA connectors on the back named "preamp out" (or similar) and "power amp in" (or similar) that have slugs connecting them, remove the slugs, hook the "preamp out" signals from the amplifier unit to the signal inputs on the equalizer and outputs from the equalizer to the "power amp in" inputs on the amplifier.
Basically, what you do is that you insert the equalizer between the preamplifier section and the power amp section of the integrated amplifier so that you can still select the signal source without having to switch any signal cables (however, i can't say if your amp has got this type of "slug" connection feature between the preamp and the power amp on the rear panel, so i'm not sure which way you'll have to hook it up).
Hope you can make it work the way you want.

You must use a sub woofer using speaker wire inputs and outputs. You cut the two wires going to your speaker, connect it to sub in and then hook the wires attached to your speaker to sub out connectors. The type of sub you have only connects to pre amps with a sub out RCA connector like the one on your sub woofer. Buy a new preamp or a sub using speaker wire in/outs if you wish to keep your existing preamp without a sub output RCA connector.
