How do I hook up a Audiosource EQ eleven to a Yamaha RX v465 receiver or can I?


Yes you can but I will have to know the inputs and the outputs you are dealing with to advise you further.

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.

How too hook up a audio source eq100 to my harman/kardon avr 1600. i have in the tape outs and ins on both devices but its not working PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on a late-model Audio/Video Receiver will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.


The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.


In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).


Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.


The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.


EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.


In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? The rest would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.



Okay, back to the hook-up:



You have to select any available 'tape loop' containing an overrideable analog 2-channel Out and In. That would be Video 1 or Tape on the HK.


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Rec, Line-In;


Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Play , Line-Out.



So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ or any outboard processor for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer's own Tape Monitor loop(s). Many have two to facilitate equalized dubbing between decks.


The EQ has its own Tape Loop(s) to replace the one it uses. Actual Tape Decks or Processors can nest into those loops and be engaged or bypassed via controls on the EQ or Processor.

Looking to hook up an audiosource EQ100 to an a sony cass deck


Simply place it in line with the analog input. Or install it in a Tape Loop on your integrated amp/receiver and attach your tape deck to ITS tape Loop.

Ins to Outs


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Rec, Line-In;


Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Play , Line-Out.

Be advised, using analog processors on digital-capable multichannel elcetronics will only work for analog 2-channel sources.

I have a SX838 Pioneer Receiver. How do I hook up a SG9500 Pioneer Equalizer to it?


The EQ should be connected between the pre-out and the Amp-in.

The pre-out goes to the EQ input.

How should i hook up a pioneer sg-9500 EQ to a pioneer SA7500 and a TX 6500 tuner and amp


check in yhe back of your amp to see if you have a pre amp power amp rca jumpers. If you do. remove these jumpers and take the pre amp out and plug it into the eq in. Then take the eq out and plug it into the power amp in. this will put your eq inbetween the pre amp and power amp. If you don't have these rca jumpers on the back of your amp, you can do the same with your tape record in and out inputs on back of amp.

I am trying to connect my equalizer to the Carver model C1 preamplifier and the amplifier.


The output of the pre-amp should go to the input of the equalizer and the output of the EQ should go to the amp.

Hope this helps,

I dont know how to hook up my equalizer to my home theaet system. Please help me out.


You need to connect the THX-44 Between your processor and power amp If you have a reciever you need to use the pre-out / post in order to loop I also suggest using ROOMEQ WIZARD to determine what frequencies to correct.

Hooking it up!


If the amp has PreIn PreOut connections, then thats the best way to go. Home theatre amps however, have 5 InOuts, and this makes it hard. You can use the tape loop. Hook up the rec out on amp to inputs on EQ, and output of EQ to tape in an amp, then engage the tape monitor function whilst ensuring that the rec selector has the source you wish to use the EQ for.
