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?
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.

Hi. The mixer puts out a full range mix, the solution is in your speaker setup.
Many subs have a built in crossover that splits the signal for the tops. Check your sub specs or manual. If your subs have this, run your output signal to them first and then link them to the tops from the special daisychain socket.
If they don't have one, you can install a passive crossover to your subs or buy an external crossover unit.
The last (and not very good) option is to fake a crossover with the desk's stereo EQ. Connect the subs to the left or right channel and the tops to the other and use the EQ to remove the bass from the tops and vice versa, pan everything dead center. Obviously this sacrifices your stereo sound and isn't brilliant.
SO I am going to give you more of a signal layout from the turntables (or whatever you use to DJ) to the speakers.
Turn tables-> Mixer-> Eq-> Amp-> Sub and other speakers.
The part that I am not understanding is why do you need the QSC amp if you have a powered sub? The powered part of that means that there is a built in amp, which eliminates the need for the QSC amp unless you are sending that sound to main (non sub) speakers.
Hope that helps!
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.
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 .....http://www.poweracoustik.com/pa2006/manual%20and%20catalog/Processors/PWM-20.pdf
it is all up to the user, you can start by turning the input up slightly, I would not go over halfway because it usually starts to distort, then the bass boost up till they distort a little then back down a quarter turn.
Only parametric EQ OR Bass/Treble can be active at a time. There is a option to set which one you want, refer to manual. Follow this- Adjusting Sound Setting Mode (long press "sound-mode" button) -> EQ SELECT-> select either P. EQ or B/T
