I bet your receiver has a Tape Monitor Loop and your EQ has one, too.

Run the EQ into the Tape Monitor loop - all out's on one to in's on the other.

Then run the deck to the EQ Tape Monitor, same connection pattern but REC may be substituted for IN and Play(back) for OUT.

The EQ also has a switch that decides if it will affect the Source or the Tape. So the EQ can be used for recording or playback of a tape PLUS any other analog source you listen to.

What cord do I need to hook subwoofer up

You need the power cord that should already be attached, plus a single RCA patch cord to connect to your source. You could use just one of a typical RCA pair, if that's all you have.

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

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
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.

VR3 200 AMP

Looking at this picture you can see the terminals at the top.
This installation has one speaker hooked up on the right, and the power inputs hooked up on the left.
The inputs will be power on the left, 12 volts positive (V+); a signal wire for to power on the amp that's 12 volts positive too, (V+, It's usually a yellow wire that comes out of the car stereo called To Antenna, or To Amp. and the third connector on the left is a Ground, or 12 volts Negative (12-). Look for the labels V+ and V- to get the power connectors in the right places. (I can't tell from the picture which is which)
On the left side is the Speakers, Each speaker has a positive and negative lead, and the terminals on the amp are labeled Left + and Left - and Right + and Right - .
Align the speaker leads to the terminals (in cars a negative lead usually has a stripe running along the length of it, and a positive has no stripe).

On the other side of the amp are RCA sockets, one red one white. Any low signal can plug into these, from an Ipod to a turntable. Your car stereo, or EQ, will have RCA outputs that can connect to these with an RCA Patch cord, which has plugs on both ends that will fit into the RCA sockets. Whatever signal goes into the RCA inputs is amplified out of the speakers when it works.

What do I need to connect Tascam 2488 to Computer. And transfer Recording to Computer. Bernie

If you are talking about the final mixdown, you will need a 1/8 inch stereo to dual RCA patch cord to go from the L/R mixed output into the line in on the computer.
You then just need to tell whatever software you are using to record from the line in.
I suggest Adobe Audition.

Can i hook up an ipod to play on it?

Yes. You need a 1/8" stereo male to dual RCA patch cord (fairly easy to find in most audio stores) and put the 1/8" into the ipod's headphone jack, and the RCA's into the Kenwood's tape or AUX inputs.

I need a hook up digram fof an optimus model 31-2025 stereo equalizer

Ten-Band Stereo Frequency
Equalizer (310-2025) Connections Faxback Doc. # 48943

Follow these steps to connect the equalizer to your audio system.

CAUTIONS: Use only shielded audio cable with RCA-type connectors (not
supplied). This type of cable is available at your local
RadioShack store.

Before you connect the equalizer, turn off all components in
your audio system and unplug their power cords.

Before you plug in the equalizer's power cord, complete all
connections and be sure the equalizer's POWER button is out.

1. To connect the equalizer to your receiver, connect the receiver's TAPE
OUT jacks to the equalizer's MAIN IN jacks.

Then, connect the equalizer's MAIN OUT jacks to your receiver's TAPE

2. You can connect a tape deck to each set of tape jacks (TAPE 1 and TAPE
2) on the back of the equalizer.

To connect each tape deck, connect the equalizer's TAPE OUT jacks to
the tape deck's in jacks. Then, connect the tape deck's out jacks to
the equalizer's TAPE IN jacks.

3. Plug the equalizer's power cord into your receiver's switched power
outlet or any standard AC outlet.

WARNING: The equalizer's power cord has a polarized plug. To prevent
electric shock, do not use an extension cord or other
receptacle unless you can fully and easily insert the plug's

4. Connect the power cords of all other components.
