An EQ (equalizer) is generally connected between the low level output of a device (phono, CD, DVD, etc.,) and the amplifier's input. If you choose to place the EQ at this point, only the device connected will be equalized. All the other sources will be unaltered.

A more complete way is as follows:

Some amplifiers have a jacks labeled Left & Right "PRE OUT" and Left & Right "AMP IN" with a heavy gauge wire or strap that connects the left AMP IN & left PRE OUT together; and the right AMP IN and right PRE OUT together. Removal of the wire or strap will cause the amp to fall silent, as the low level signal no longer has a path from the PRE OUT to the AMP IN jacks. If you were to insert the EQ here, the path would be restored - but allowing you to boost or cut the level of certain frequencies BEFORE they are amplified. This is accomplished by connecting PRE OUT to EQ IN and EQ OUT to AMP IN for both the left and right channels.

As I mentioned, only some amps have these PRE OUT and AMP IN jacks - many however do not. In this case, you may be able to use the TAPE MON jacks. The TAPE MON is the Tape Monitor and appears on most "half-way decent" receivers. These jacks were provided to enable listening to a tape in nearly "real time" as it was being recorded on higher end "3 head" tape recorders. If you don't have a "3 head" tape deck (most do not), you can use these jacks the same as the PRE OUT and AMP IN jacks above. This is accomplished by connecting the TAPE OUT to EQ IN and the EQ OUT to the TAPE IN for both the left and right jacks. You would then select the source of the music - be it CD, Phono, etc. and with the EQ powered, pressing the TAPE MON button on the receiver, you could hear the difference between the EQ in the circuit and the EQ out of the circuit.

The key in the examples above is that there is always an input connected to an output. Don't connect inputs to inputs and outputs to outputs. Take your time and work one cable at a time - one end to an input and the other to the corresponding output.

Some situations may arise if using Dolby Digital, THX, etc. type input signals. Sometimes it is not possible to equalize them. If you have sources (DVD, Satellite Receivers, etc.) that have an optical or coaxial connection, those will be the ones that may have undesired affects. The familiar RCA type jacks for left and right signals should work perfectly.

I'll see if I can find a link with a picture...

How to hook up a 7 band pioneer equalizer great 470 to a Kenwood kr-v6030 receiver


Connecting an Equalizer to a Receiver Before beginning, purchase RCA cables. In order to run the signal from a stereo receiver to the graphic equalizer and then on to the amplifier, two sets of RCA cables are needed. These are basic cables used to connect auxiliary components like record players and CD players. The length of the RCA cables should be about the same length as the distance between the receiver and equalizer.

1. Connect Graphic the Equalizer to the Receiver

The first step in this setup is to connect the graphic equalizer (EQ) to the receiver. Most receivers will have preamp-in and preamp-out connections. Some have tape monitor connections. It's preferable to connect the EQ to the preamp-in or preamp-out because the tape monitor won't allow for connection to the amplifier as well.

2. Connect the RCA Cables

The first set of RCA cables should connect the receiver and equalizer. Connect one pair to the preamp output channels and the other end to the left and right input channels on the EQ. These are on the back side of the equalizer. Usually, the colors will correspond to the RCA plugs. That means connect the red plug to the red jack and the white plug to the white jack. Then connect the second pair of RCA cables between the receiver and the amp. Match the colors in the same way.

3. Connect the Amp to the Receiver

Now the amp can be connected to the receiver via RCA cables in the amp inputs on the receiver. This will create a loop from the receiver through the EQ and amp and back to the receiver so that all three units are connected.

4. Test Graphic Equalizer

Turn on the receiver, amp and equalizer. Once they are powered up, try controlling the sound with the equalizer knobs. They should fine tune the music according to your preferences. It's easy to change the frequency response or tone of the music with the equalizer knobs.

I have a pioneer VSX D-308 RECIEVER and a electro-voiceevt 2210can it be hooked up together


The Tapco equalizer was a very popular line of equipment which was eventually bought up by Electro-Voice. Could not find any online manuals, however found online images of back panel. It appears to have Tape Ins & Outs.

Unfortunately the equalizer you have is not compatible with the receiver unless you have special cables that have built in transformers. This unit has T&R connectors (tip & ring) meant for professional sound equipment.

On a typical home stereo receiver you would hook up your equalizer with RCA connectors as follows.

1) You take the output of the equalizer and plug it into the input of the receiver.

2) You take the output of the Receiver and plug it into the input of the equalizer.

Start with lower volume and your tape switch on the receiver to the on position. Play with the various controls on your equalizer to

Don't no how to hook it up ...


Instructions
Hook up an RCA patch cable
between the output of your car's
stereo receiver and the graphic
equalizer's RCA inputs. Use
stereo cables with male RCA
connectors.
Connect the equalizer's outputs
to the RCA inputs of your
amplifiers. How many cables you
need will depend upon the
number of amps in the system. In
most cases, you'll need two to
three to connect the equalizer to
the inputs of your amplifiers.
Hook up the equalizer to 12-volt
power. Use the same power
connections you used to connect
your amplifiers and receiver. The
equalizer's yellow wire should be
connected to a constant power
source, one that is not switched
off with the ignition, and the red
wire (not always present) to a
switched 12-volt power source.
Splice the wires by stripping the
insulation off the end of each
wire and then soldering or
crimping them together.
Connect the equalizer's blue
"turn-on" lead to the receiver's
blue wire. This turns the
equalizer on when the receiver is
powered up.
