Hi, problem can be solved.

Just follow this guide:

First you will need

  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Trim panel tool
  • Amplifier wiring kit
  • Patch cables
  • Wiring harness adapter.

Disconnect the negative battery cable (or grounding cable) from the battery. The grounding cable is the black cable that connects the battery to the frame or chassis of the vehicle. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to loosen the bolt of the clamp on the cable. Remove the clamp from the negative lead of the battery.

Connect the ring terminal from the amplifier wiring kit to the positive lead of the battery. Take the fuse out of the fuse holder on the ring terminal.

Mount the amplifier and equalizer in the vehicle's trunk. The units can be mounted in other locations of the vehicle, but the trunk is ideal for ventilation of the amplifier and ease of access for the equalizer.

Remove the stereo from the dash of the vehicle. Removal procedures vary. See your vehicle's owner's manual for proper removal instructions.

Run the main power cable from the battery to the trunk of the vehicle. Use a trim panel tool to remove the panels, securing the carpeting to the floor of the vehicle.

Connect the power cable to the battery and the amplifier.

Run the signal cable from the stereo to the amplifier. Be sure to run the signal wires on the opposite side of the vehicle to avoid interference.

Connect the turn-on lead from the stereo to the amplifier. The turn-on lead can be routed with the signal cable without worry of interference.

Connect the grounding wire from the amplifier wiring kit to the frame of the vehicle. For optimum grounding, the grounding wire should be less than 20 inches and connected to the frame at any available bolt location in the trunk.

Connect the speakers to the amplifier using standard speaker wire.

Connect the equalizer patch cables to the stereo, and run them to the trunk. Use a wiring harness adapter. Run the patch cables along a path other than the amplifier power cable. The power cable will cause audible interference if grouped with signal cables.

Connect the patch cables to the equalizer.

Replace the stereo in the dock in the dash of the vehicle.

Reconnect the grounding cable to the negative lead of the vehicle's battery. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to tighten the clamp around the lead. Tighten the clamp so that it cannot be moved about the negative lead by hand.

Place the fuse into the ring terminal of the amplifier wiring kit.

I guess that will solve the problem.Hope it was helpfull.

Good luck.

Head unit connect

You will only be able to use this EQ on the front or the rear speakers. You will have to get another EQ if you think you need one. Usually, the front speakers of a car's audio system are the smallest and the rears are larger. You really do not want an EQ on the subs. If it was mine, I would hook the EQ between the head unit and the rear speakers. If you feel this does not sound right, you may need, but I doubt it very much, to get another EQ for the front speakers. Good Luck

From what I have read about this EQ it is just for subsonic frequencies. You really don't want to run your components through this EQ. Leave the components running off of the 4 channel amp and your sub box on the two channel with the EQ in series between your head unit and the sub amp.

Hi i trying to figure out how to wire up my rca's i have a pionner deck in on the back of it it has front output,rear output,sub output ,and also a audio output .now im trying to up it to a clarion eq that...

The "Front output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the "Main In" on the Clarion EQ. I'm assuming that your Clarion EQ can only deal with one input, and will send the adjusted (equalized) signal out both of the outputs.
The "Front output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Front Input" on the 4 channel amp.
The "Rear output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Rear Input" on the 4 channel amp.
The "Sub output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the Left/Right Input on the Epicenter. The Left/Right Output on the Epicenter would need a Y-splitter for each side, so that you could connect each amp separately. One suggestion would be to use one sub amp for both subs.

How to wire it to make the bass cuts off when offing the eq

This unit has a separate EQ band for the subwoofer-- you'd connect the sub-out from your CD player to the sub input on the EQ, and the sub-out from the EQ into the input on the sub amp.
The "sub" slider would then adjust the sub volume.
If your CD player doesn't have a sub-out, and you are just using one of the regular front/rear outputs to feed the sub amp, then the sub volume will follow the other sliders toward the left side of the unit, which is less desirable.

The low frequencies adjustment is not working when i turn the sub frequency on low it lowers the volume of the bass completely

check the rca cables on the back to see if you might have the sub woofer cable in wrong rca spot

this is how it should be wired from your radio front output a set of rca cables go to the radio input of the eq. if you have sub out on radio it will not be used ... eq takes place of it ... turn off subout on radio ... to use eq or preamp you must have at 2 amps 1 for mids and tweets and 1 for subs to work eq right

then from the eq you have another set of rca cables comming from the front output to your mids and tweet amp and then if you dont have a second amp u wont need rear output move over to the suboutput and run a set of rca cables from eq's sub output to sub amp this is how the audio cable section should be connected if you still dont get it to work proper then then it has a electronic issue and need to warranted out if still in warranty or buy new one .... here is a link to the install manual with a wire diagram for repair shop .....
