Hi triaxisman55

As your Mackies are active, and I presume you are setting up a control room using them as near feild monitors. I would have the digital EQ as the last thing before the monitors, and the realtime analyser before the EQ to eye your audio, and perhaps mic into the realtime to tune the room to some pink noise. If you are happy with the room, then the digital EQ could be used for signal anything that needs some tweaking.

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.

robotek

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.

Where is pre out im having trouble hooking up amp and eq


You have to use the TAPE 2 (or monitor) on the receiver. It will take two sets of RCA cables. Both the receiver and the EQ will have an input and an output.

  • Run the output/REC (from TAPE 2) to the input on the EQ.
  • Then, run the input from the receiver (TAPE 2 again) to the output on the EQ.
The EQ will have another 2 sets of RCA jacks to hook up a second tape deck (because you used the jacks on the receiver for the EQ). You don't have to hook anything to these if you don't want to, or don't have a second tape deck.

The receiver will have a monitor button, which most of the time is labeled as TAPE 2/MONITOR. Select whatever input you want to use (CD, Tuner, Aux, etc.), then press the MONITOR/TAPE 2 button. When that is on, the EQ will be in the audio chain - you'll be able to use the EQ to adjust the sound. If you turn the MONITOR off it will take the EQ out of the audio chain - the EQ settings won't affect the sound.

Keep in mind, the EQ will also have a button to select the TAPE 2 input. If you have a second tape deck hooked up to the EQ, this is how to use it. Make sure that the tape input is off on the EQ, if you aren't listening to that second tape deck.

I want to run from my rxv2600 to a eq to an external amp to a pair speakers? yamaha online said run out of L/Rfront preamp to eq but i get no sound? Help plz am i missing something?


Must be connected to an audio OUTPUT.
There are probably preamp inputs and outputs.
Sounds a little strange, but signal (sound) must travel OUT of the Yamaha, IN to the EQ to be processed, OUT of the EQ, IN to the external amp to make it big enough to drive speakers, and OUT of the amp to the speakers.

Hello,i recently purchased a graphic equalizer on ebay to work in conjuction with a tape deck, two turntables,two cd players,two mics and a mixer.The model of the unit is a ADC SS-115,i got it home...


I admire your desire to make a nice piece of classic gear whole again but the cost of simply replacing it with a fully functional one is probably less.

Having owned an old Sound Shaper with mechanical sliders I can tell you that you will eventually start to encounter noisy contacts and slider that will drive you crazy. I only used mine for recording and eventually I could never trust the sliders to move without inducing noise. I eventually got an ADC SS-525X with all electronic sliders, Real Time Analyzer/EQ display, 4 curve memories, remote control and life is good.

Surf over to eBay and look around.

There's one SS-525X with no mention of the Remote or calibration mic (which I have but never used anyway). The display lights up in that bright Fluorescent Blue....

I have a yamaha rx v359 AV receiver and want to a GE30 yamaha equalizer. Can't figure out how. Can you help?


From what I can tell the amplifier is not really designed to be able to patch in an EQ. The only way to do it would be to connect the source directly to the EQ and then to the amp. To be honest though, you shouldn't need to EQ the system at all. If you have problems it is most likely to be the room. Look at ways to damp the response in the room first as adding extra processing to the signal chain will always degrade the audio quality.

Bose 901 hookup with Onkyo SR 805 and Onkyo M282 amp and 901 EQ/


The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!

The Onkyo M-282 stereo amp for the 901's is the perfect solution. Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

**Onkyo SR805 Pre-Out Front >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> Onkyo M-282 IN

Set the Input Level on the back of the Onkyo to MAX. The receiver controls everything just fine after you run through your level setup routine again.

I was looking a the 12v triggers on both units and it looks like you only have a Zone 2 trigger so that wouldn't work for turning on your M-282. I guess you're going to have to turn it on and off the old fashioned way, like I do mine.

Re: Peavey KB100 75 watt keyboard amplifier. Dear Sir, After having plugged into the 'PRE EQ PATCH' the main 3 inputs/channels are no longer working. I looked in the operating guide and...


The pre-eq patch connector is a 3 -wire connector designed as both an input and output in one connector. With a plug in there that only utilizes the output (send), you are not sending any signal to the amp section. That appears as no output. Take out the cable and the amp should be restored to original function. What you need to use that function is called an "insert" cable. This has a stereo 1/4" plug at the end for the "pre eq patch" side and 2 standard 1/4" plugs at the other end. One is for input into an effects box and the other is for the output from that efects box.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Pevey combo 115 how do i EQ it


Assuming you're referring to the Peavey Combo 115 amp, you enable the equalization feature by pressing the button Identified as "EQ In, EQ Out". With the button pressed (In), you can modify the tone characteristics of your instrument using the 7 different frequency range adjusters. Leaving all at zero does not change your signal at all. You may want to check Wikipedia for a definition of decibel changes to get a good feel for how the equalizer works.

Receiver shut down only when using phono preamp


You may want to try putting an attenuater in the line with the RCA's to cut the input signal back just a little bit. So you are not driving the amp so hard with your preamp.
