Most likely you have the remote or power wire of the equilizer connected to the "power antenna" output of the deck, which is only powerted when you are listening to the radio. If this is the case, try switching it to the "remote" output, or any normal 12v line that switches off with the deck or ignition. If this doesn't help let me know where you have the equalizer getting its power from and I'll be able to offer more help.

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.

Hookup


It would help to know what equalizer you have, but I will assume it is a stereo analog unit. With the exception of the Tape In/Out connections on the back of the receiver there is really no provision for an equalizer. Even the Tape I/O connections are of little use if you can't monitor the source through the Tape In connections. Even if that were to work, it will not function for any digital sources you may have. You should be able to install this between an analog external source and the input to the receiver if you have one particular device you would like to tweak.
There are equalizer settings you can control within the receiver itself. You have the option of selecting the manual method for equalizer settings for each speaker or the default automatic method. Granted there are only 5 frequencies (3 for the sub) that you can adjust, but the fact that you can adjust each speaker separately is an advantage. The following was taken from the owner's manual:
• The front, center, surround, and surround back speakers
can be adjusted at 80 Hz, 250 Hz, 800 Hz,
2500 Hz, and 8000 Hz. The subwoofer can be adjusted
at 40 Hz, 80 Hz, and 160 Hz.
• While the Direct or Pure Audio listening mode is
selected, the equalizer settings have no effect.
• This procedure can also be performed on the AV
receiver by using its [SETUP], [ENTER], and arrow
buttons.

This is a very good receiver with some great features. If you have performed the Automatic Speaker Setup, you can go to the equalizer setting and select Off, Audyssey (automatic) or Manual.

Hope this helps.

Im having trouble hooking up my equalizer to my Pioneer audio/video multichannel receiver vsx-814


Looking at the back..bottom right corner is CDR/Tape in and out. Connect the in on the eq to the out of CDR/tape, connect the out of the eq to the in of CDR/tape.
You should then be able to use the CDR/tape monitor button to switch the equalizer in and out.

Kenwood A-97 Sound gone poor


It sounds like the amplifier is going. I remember when I accidentaly crossed wires, the amp did the same thing, then one day it shut off. It wasn't the same amp, but it doesn't matter, it sounds like the amp is on its way out. :/

If you still have the warranty, I would have them take a look.

Cant get equalizer to work with my receiver


This might work fish76, The EQ needs a in & out source to operate correctly? If you have audio device connected to an aux input disconnect that & connect the EQ to that audio device & then plug the EQ to the Sony receiver AUX input. The tape monitor is the most important source for hooking up an EQ device, so you are very limited on a total receiver or amp tonal connection source. The bottom line is you can only use the EQ if another audio source to plug into it & the EQ plugs to your pre-amp input on the back of your rec or amp

Equalizer connections


Usually you hook your equalizer between the pre out and main in RCA jacks and then open the connection between the pre and main with a switch. If your unit doesn't have pre out/ main in jacks then I have seen it done by putting your equalizer between the tape in and tape out jacks and then select that tape function on your front panel. The tape out goes to eq. in and the eq. out goes to tape in. Good luck.

I have a Pioneer SG-540 stereo Graphic Equalizer that only works in the right channel, but more importantly puts out a large amount of excess humming moise and other unwanted sounds when the controls are...


I use the sg 540 equalizer for cd and tuner. (I have two of them) I also use the sa 940 to power my sound. On the tuner input of the amp, i used standerd rca cables and connected it to the output of the equalizer. then i connected rca cables from the input of the equalizer to the output of the tuner. this only works when the top equalizer button is pushed on. hope it works for you.

HOOKING UP A STEREO EQUALIZER


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.
