How can i get my power to my EQ?

The bass from my subs seem to drain all the power from my equalizer. i have a capacitor hooked up but it doesnt seems like its helping any. when my bass comes on the lights from my EQ dim and the whole thing turns off for about a half second if i have my radio loud is there anything i can do to get more power to it, or is there a problem other than that?

Re: how can i get my power to my EQ?

What kind of eq is it? First thing I would do is hook up the +12 and GND to the same place the amp is hooked up. I think the eq is having a hard time getting ample current, therefore shutting off all the way when the bass hits. Caps are good, but second battery and battery isolator are far superior.

How to wire it to make the bass cuts off when offing the eq

This unit has a separate EQ band for the subwoofer-- you'd connect the sub-out from your CD player to the sub input on the EQ, and the sub-out from the EQ into the input on the sub amp.
The "sub" slider would then adjust the sub volume.
If your CD player doesn't have a sub-out, and you are just using one of the regular front/rear outputs to feed the sub amp, then the sub volume will follow the other sliders toward the left side of the unit, which is less desirable.

The low frequencies adjustment is not working when i turn the sub frequency on low it lowers the volume of the bass completely

check the rca cables on the back to see if you might have the sub woofer cable in wrong rca spot

this is how it should be wired from your radio front output a set of rca cables go to the radio input of the eq. if you have sub out on radio it will not be used ... eq takes place of it ... turn off subout on radio ... to use eq or preamp you must have at 2 amps 1 for mids and tweets and 1 for subs to work eq right

then from the eq you have another set of rca cables comming from the front output to your mids and tweet amp and then if you dont have a second amp u wont need rear output move over to the suboutput and run a set of rca cables from eq's sub output to sub amp this is how the audio cable section should be connected if you still dont get it to work proper then then it has a electronic issue and need to warranted out if still in warranty or buy new one .... here is a link to the install manual with a wire diagram for repair shop .....

Equalizer doesn't turn on

hookup the remote wire of your EQ to that of the HU or just simply connect it to the positive line but it would make your EQ powered ON all the time. That remote wire of your EQ is to get a trigger signal from the HU so that it will turn the EQ "on".
