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 am trying to wire my amp to my stereo receiver and I'm having a hell of a time. Does anyone have any suggestions?


Auto sound system ? / home stereo ? What is the year, make and model car and if a home system - What components are you trying to connect? Provide brands and models of *all* components.

I have a Sansui 2000A Stereo Tuner Amplifies that powers up but has no sound. the fuse for the 220-250V 2A was blown and replaced. The speaker fuses look good. Should I replace them too or is there...


If the fuse was blown on the 220-250 V side, I am assuming that you are in the UK, if you aren't , but are in the US, change the power setting dial/switch on the back to 100-120v and you might be good to go. Also, I know this may sound silly, but make sure that the speaker selector switch is pressed in or set to a speaker set ( A or B). Love the Sansui gear, have many complete systems myself!

Sansui stereo remote


the above mentioned make and model # unit is a tuner, not a reciever, as a tuner, it's only function is to recieve radio signals, there is no internal amp, no selector switch for other components.

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.

Hi

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, you have an odd problem happening there, the pre-amp being the common denominator to the syptoms. Perhaps you could try reducing the attenuators to say 60% and retry at the same levels you used to use at the preamp. It is unlikely that there is a fault occurring that would increase the output of the preamp, more likely to be a DC component getting through. It could also be possible that the amps if all the same make and model have through over the period of installation developed the same fault.
There will have to be a common contributor to the symptoms. It is not uncommon for the same problem to affect a particular model at the same point of its life. Best approach and easiest to fault find it would be to change out the preamp with something similer to test the system and see what happens. At least tyouy will know where to start looking. Hope I have been able to help you, still happy to discuss it further. In the Free section our only reward is a FixYa ratings. Cheers

I need a replacement volume control for a Sansui-AU-717.


Hi p00pmeister

This great old amp uses an Alps brand attenuator. This could be a little hard to find an exact fit replacemernt. Have you tried to clean the control. The can generally be restored by flooding the internals with CRC 2-26. If you have intermittent channels, check also the amp/preamp switch to the rear of the amp also.

Check out this Has some instruction on dealing with the disassembly of the attenuator

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.
