With the receiver off, press ENTER + ADVANCED SURROUND keys continuously for 2 sec. and it will tell you the fault it encountered. Even if it has a short, it will still protect the speakers; however, it is still a good idea to disconnect all speakers before doing this.

SOURCE: How do I connect my Bose 901 to my Pioneer


The use of 901's in any digital AV receiver setup for anything EXCEPT STEREO listening through the 901's alone requires you to have a separate amplifier for them and to avoid having to use a Tape Monitor.

That is because if you activate any Tape Monitor circuit at all, you will kill any digital sources. That is a function of AV receivers in general, nothing to do with 901's. However, you can still draw the Front Left and Right signals out of any Pre-Out (with a Y-cable set, looping the Pre Out directly back to the Main In) or Tape Out jacks (remembering to NEVER activate that monitor on the receiver), go into the Active EQ's Amplifier Connections; then Out of the EQ's Amplifier Connection to a separate amp and attach the 901's to that amp. This way you won't introduce proprietary and potentially damaging Active Equalization back into anything in the AV Receiver with its conventional speakers.

Get yourself a nice separate amp, draw the Front L&R pre-out signals from wherever you can find them. On many, there is a pre-amp out for every channel in case you want to run external amps for any channels. That is how my old Pioneer VSX-36TX is equipped. For others, you may have to borrow the signals from a typical Tape- or Adapter-Out RCA pair. Just remember, AV receivers disable digital inputs as soon as you switch in a Tape Monitor, so choose one you won't have to switch IN. The signal Out is always there regardless of the monitor state.

The AV Receiver can still drive the Center, Surrounds and the Sub(s) as it is designed. This is how mine is wired.

Come to think of it, you could still have conventional Front L&R speakers on the AV Receiver, but why? Maybe one would prefer the 901's for music and some other speakers for surround. Level matching with the 901's to conventional front speakers would only be possible if the separate amp has its own volume, but it would work. Maybe I'll try it someday. None of my current amps has a volume control.

Its because the pioneer does not display menu options through hdmi. You have to hook up basic yellow composite to monitor out.

Im having trouble hooking up my equalizer to my Pioneer audio/video multichannel receiver vsx-814


Looking at the back..bottom right corner is CDR/Tape in and out. Connect the in on the eq to the out of CDR/tape, connect the out of the eq to the in of CDR/tape.
You should then be able to use the CDR/tape monitor button to switch the equalizer in and out.

How do I connect a TEAC Equalizer to a Pioneer VSX - 406 receiver?


In any 'connection' question there are at least two participants and specific answers require specific details of all parts.

Outs to Ins, usually in a Tape (Monitor) Loop. REC is OUT, PLAY is IN from the receiver's perspective. The EQ will have its own Tape Loop for other processors or tape decks. Same conventions apply.

ANY analog processor can only be used for analog stereo sources. As soon as you engage the monitor for the Tape Loop on the AVR any digital source will be silenced.

How do i connect an equalizer model gr-408 to a receiver vsx-d508


In any tape loop (MD/Tape 1 or Tape 2 Monitor), OUTs to INs, BUT it will only be useful for stereo analog sources as activation of the loop disables any digital audio inputs.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D308 reciever and I have a EQ. How do I hook it up to this reciever?


I only know of one way to do this and here it is:

1. Plug your tape deck's output (cassette or R2R) into the EQ's "Line In".
2. Plug the EQ's "Line Out" into the Receiver's "Tape 1 Input".
3. Now plug the Receivers "Tape 1 Output" into the Tape Player's "Line In".
4. You have now made an "FX loop" for the Tape Deck. Now you just have to put the Tape Deck on "Tape Monitor".....put the Receiver on "FM"..... and turn on your favorite FM station and you will hear the FM Receiver THROUGH the tape deck's "Monitor Send" AND the EQ.............set EQ to taste....... and BINGO.......DONE!

Enjoy,

Hi can I hook up my marantz mm500u amp to my pioneer 305 vsx audio reciever


I presume you just want to slave the Marantz to play whatever the Pioneer is playing.

Run a pair of RCA cables from either the Pioneer Tape Monitor REC or the VCR/Tape 1 Out jacks to the desired Marantz Input jacks. DON'T activate the corresponding switch on the Pioneer.

Only the basic Leftand Right channel programming that the Pioneer plays will be available at the Marantz. You will NOT have centralized volume control at the Pioneer.

How to install bose 901 eq to my pioneer vsx-1019ah-k


This works for all models of AV receivers when you want 901's as Front L&R speakers..

Get yourself a nice separate amp, draw the Front L&R pre-out signals from wherever you can find them. On many, there is a pre-amp out for every channel in case you want to run external amps for any channels. That is how my old Pioneer VSX-36TX is equipped. For others, you may have to borrow the signals from a typical Tape- or Adapter-Out RCA pair. Just remember, AV receivers disable digital inputs as soon as you switch in a Tape Monitor, so choose one you won't have to switch IN. The signal Out is always there regardless of the monitor state.

Patch the Active EQ directly off that point (Amp In from the receiver, Amp Out to the new amp). Run all the speaker level settings on the AV Receiver and rock on.
