SOURCE: im trying to connect a bsr xr eq to my avr687 denon receiver

If you want the EQ to affect the iPod music only, you can hook up the iPod output to the EQ input, then the EQ output to your receiver's AUX input (or DAT input, or whatever you're using to listen to iPod music.

If you want the option of using EQ for other signals as well, then you hook up the EQ to the TAPE inputs/outputs (TAPE OUT goes to EQ input, and EQ output goes to TAPE IN)

If you hook it up this way, then you have to select MONITOR or TAPE MON to get the equalized signal.

How do I hook up my bose 901s to this unit?


Well the basic connection of the speakers would be the same as another stereo speaker pair. Wire the left and right speakers to the L/R Front Surround speakers on the Denon.

With the 901's I am assuming that there is an external equalizer supplied by Bose. Typically this EQ is installed in a tape loop on the receiver/amp so that it is ahead of the power amplifier that drives the speakers. This EQ needs to be there to attempt to get reasonable frequency response from a speaker that has only 4" drivers. I'm not sure I see any reasonable way to make the EQ work with the Denon AV receiver. You'd likely be better off using the Bose speakers in a dedicated 2-channel stereo and getting a set of speakers for the AV usage.

I want to purchase a behringer 15 band graphic equaliser and connect it to a numark 5000fx mixer via skytec pro600 power amp can you help.


The signal path to follow is explained below:

*Audio Source(Cd/LapTop/Ipod)output to,
*Numark 5000FX Input, Then master/main outputs go to,
*Behringer FBQ1502 Inputs, then outputs go to,
*Pro600 Power Amplifier Inputs, then power amp outputs hooked up with a speaker each side.

Hope this helps.

How do I connect my bose equalizer to my pioneer amplifier


The manual is at Bose.com.

In any question regarding connections the exact models of all parts in the scenario should be defined.

"Pioneer amplifier" is not unique nor revealing. Integrated amplifer? Power amp? Tape Loops available? Pre-Outs? What's involved as a preamp?

The key thing to know is that any amplifier channels driving 901's must not drive other speakers as the Active EQ severely modifies the Line Level source input. If the EQ (or any sound processor) is used in a Tape Loop on a modern multichannel digital-audio-capable AVR, ONLY 2-channel analog sources will function when the Tape Loop is engaged; and all downstream speakers will be affected by the processing. That's par for the AVR course.

Bose 901 use in multichannel applications (which I have) will require access to Pre-Amp outputs for the chosen channels (likely the Front) and you will need to get a separate amp for the 901's, placing the EQ in series with the chosen amplifier. I currently drive mine with a Carver MT-200T.

Can i hook up a eq to my pioneer VSX-D457 digital processor ?


Your unnamed EQ can probabaly work with the VSX if it attaches in the traditional Tape Loop fashion (outs to ins) BUT...

It will only work for 2-channel analog source material. Activation of a tape loop on a modern AVR disables all digital sources. But you will still be able to apply DSP to the sound coming through the EQ as you would with any other analog source.

I hooked up equalizer to it through tape hook up but will not work


Even if you DO get the EQ connected correctly (hint: out go to ins) it will only work for analog 2-channel sources if engaged. AND any digital sources will be disabled.

HOW can i connect this ross model eq r15s to my avr687 denon rece


Treat each EQ (or any processor) as as Tape Deck and place it on its own Tape loop on the Denon. Tape deck(s) can attach to external processors because they always have tape loops to replace the one they use.

Rule of Thumb: OUT's go to IN's.

You can have as many processors as you want. I have five.

You can serialize processors if they would logically be used together or you could get a dbx-200 or dbx-400 Program Route Selector which provides connections and switching facilities for 3 processors and 3 tape decks but uses only one tape loop on the receiver.

Individual processors can be engaged or disabled, and the whole mess can be placed in the record OR the playback end of the chain - all via front panel switches. Very versatile.

I am keyboard player and i want hook up an equalizer to the system where do i hook it up to


If you're only using the keyboard, connect the keyboard output to the EQ input, and EQ output to your amp.

If you have multiple instruments and a mixer, run mixer output to EQ input, EQ output to amp.

More info, let me know.

I am looking to upgrade my receiver to an audio video receiver that will hook up to a blue ray via HDMI. I want to use my 901's forthe front speakers. Can you recommend a mid priced (<$600) AVR that...


Good day,

Congrats on your new AV receiver. I own an awesome Yamaha mid-priced AV surround sound system with HDMI, BR disc player, and all that stuff. However, I'm old school and use my 901 Series Vs with a Yamaha RX-797 'two-channel' receiver. To get to the point, I have some bad news. Mid-priced (mp) AVRs, or any AVR for that matter, will not work with 901s because the active equalizer (EQ) requires either a 'tape monitor loop' or 'pre-out / main-in' connection to work properly. You've probably been told the 'why they won't work' by now and it is very true--I know from experience. Most of today's AVRs do not include a 'tape monitor loop' or 'pre-out/main-in connection for the EQ connection, thus, killing all hopes of using 901s. I truly love my 901 Series Vs (since 1985 and still kicking) and love true 'stereo' for playing my music. Again, 901s are useless with today's AVR equipment (as I know it). Just don't let your 901s collect dust--they are truly marvels!! Go with a set of good 'standard' speakers for the AVR system and buy yourself a decent stereo receiver or amp for the 901s--that's how I do it!! I've tried Onkyo, Rotel, Sansui, Poineer amps / receivers--all of them. I can tell you this--for the common, working man/woman, nothing, I mean nothing available can match-up with Bose 901s like a Yamaha RX-797 (200W)--not to mention the sound quality-wow!!! And this unit is very reasonably priced for such awesome performance and high quality build. Just know that all is not lost. You can still use your 901s--I cna't listen to music without mine.

Connecting Bose 901 series iv to Harman Kardon AVR 254


Most HK av receivers have pre amp out,power amp in with metal jumpers connecting them for the main or front channels. that would be the best place to hook up the EQ on a AV receiver. If your receiver doesn't have pre out, power in jacks , you can use tape monitor .record out playback in. The tape monitor option is best for stereo use , as the active EQ will charge all speakers in tape mode, possibly damaging other speakers.I run my 901 s with a seperate pre-amp,power-amp hooked up to my Denon AV receiver that way i can run in surround w/standard speakers
