If your preamp has a Tape Monitor loop:

Eq Pre or Line Out to Preamp Tape In
EQ Pre or Line In to Preamp Tape Out

CD to Aux on the preamp

Engage the Tape Monitor to place the EQ between any source attached the the preamp (including the CD) and whatever follows it (an amp??).

Can you hook up a pyramid graphic equalizer 8600 to a Pioneer receiver audio video multi-channel vsx - D 912


The ideal way to do it is to hook up the preamp outputs of receiver directly to equalizer and the equalizer outputs to the amp inputs on receiver. Then unit will work with all sources.

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 Teac Ag D9100 Receiver how do you install a equalizer


Best way to hook up equalizer is see if receiver has preamp outputs that can be connected to amp inputs. If so hook up equalizer to them and you are in business. Or you can hook up equalizer to the output of the device you want equalized and then hook up the EQ output to any receiver input.

Can i hook up a guitar amp to a home equalizer


Not likely. An equalizer is usually hooked to a preamp OUT and then to the MAIN AMP in. There is no connection like that on a guitar amp.

I have a Crest Audio V900, a set of Bose 901, a Gemini EQ-3000. Do I need a PREAMP? Or can I hook up the Crest AMP to the Equalizer?


You could use the EQ but it won;t sound as good as it will with a pre amp and also could make it a bit trickier when adjusting the volume and getting it to sound right.

I have a Pioneer VSX-515 6.1 system and I am trying to hook up my phono to it. I am not sure which input to use. Right now the only input I have is my CD player.


Like many newer receivers, this model doesn't have a phono input. I guess manufacturers think nobody listens to vinyl today. You can still hook a turntable to one of the extra audio inputs on this unit, but you'll need a phono preamp. The output level from the turntable is too low to drive a "line level" input directly, and the preamp boosts and equalizes the signal so it will work properly. Radio Shack still carries a preamp; you can order online or find it in some of their stores. Many other sources are available online, and if you have a good stereo shop in your area they probably stock one. Plug the turntable to the preamp input, connect the preamp output to the receiver and that's it. You'll also need an AC outlet nearby as the preamp needs power.

How do I hook up a home theater system to my sansui record player? DO I need any special hook up? Where is the volume controlled?


Some make and model numbers would have helped.

A traditional turntable requires a preamp inline with it to PRE amplify and frequency-balance (*) the minute signal produced by it's cartridge. Most stereo receivers and preamps have Phono connections and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose. Lacking a Phono Preamp you will have unusuable very low, tinny sound.

* Google "riaa equalization" for some background

Some of the newer turntables come with selectable internal preamplification to solve the lack of it in modern equipment.


Volume is always handled at the electronics.

I have an old integrated amplifier and an old BSR EQ-3000 stereo frequency equalizer. i just bought a used bose 901 speaker set. how do i hook-up the bose 901 equalizer in this system?


Hook the signal source to the equalizer input and the equalizer output signal to one of the signal inputs on your amp. This is one way, but this way only one signal source will go through the equalizer (unless it has several signal inputs and a source selector switch).

The other way (inserting the equalizer between the preamp and the main amp) is:

If your amp has RCA connectors on the back named "preamp out" (or similar) and "power amp in" (or similar) that have slugs connecting them, remove the slugs, hook the "preamp out" signals from the amplifier unit to the signal inputs on the equalizer and outputs from the equalizer to the "power amp in" inputs on the amplifier.

Basically, what you do is that you insert the equalizer between the preamplifier section and the power amp section of the integrated amplifier so that you can still select the signal source without having to switch any signal cables (however, i can't say if your amp has got this type of "slug" connection feature between the preamp and the power amp on the rear panel, so i'm not sure which way you'll have to hook it up).

Hope you can make it work the way you want.

regards
