The XR-1 is a 2 way crossover. Depending on the resistor networks, it can be anywhere from 50hz to 5khz. If the packs are marked 153, It's 750HZ, if they're 103 it's 1.2khz if 104 it's around 120hz and 154, 80 hz.
The hi side amp is ch1 the low side is ch2 The amp can be configured as a subwoofer bridged amp , a subwoofer with full range dual ch. You can't make it into a stereo amp with out the obsolete stereo input pack that replaces the XR-1 crossover

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.

Eq to receiver


Connect through the tape monitor jacks and if a tape deck is used connect it to the eq! Check your owners manual if you still have it or download one.

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 would like to hook-up amp to graphic equalizer i would like picture if possible.


An EQ (equalizer) is generally connected between the low level output of a device (phono, CD, DVD, etc.,) and the amplifier's input. If you choose to place the EQ at this point, only the device connected will be equalized. All the other sources will be unaltered.

A more complete way is as follows:

Some amplifiers have a jacks labeled Left & Right "PRE OUT" and Left & Right "AMP IN" with a heavy gauge wire or strap that connects the left AMP IN & left PRE OUT together; and the right AMP IN and right PRE OUT together. Removal of the wire or strap will cause the amp to fall silent, as the low level signal no longer has a path from the PRE OUT to the AMP IN jacks. If you were to insert the EQ here, the path would be restored - but allowing you to boost or cut the level of certain frequencies BEFORE they are amplified. This is accomplished by connecting PRE OUT to EQ IN and EQ OUT to AMP IN for both the left and right channels.

As I mentioned, only some amps have these PRE OUT and AMP IN jacks - many however do not. In this case, you may be able to use the TAPE MON jacks. The TAPE MON is the Tape Monitor and appears on most "half-way decent" receivers. These jacks were provided to enable listening to a tape in nearly "real time" as it was being recorded on higher end "3 head" tape recorders. If you don't have a "3 head" tape deck (most do not), you can use these jacks the same as the PRE OUT and AMP IN jacks above. This is accomplished by connecting the TAPE OUT to EQ IN and the EQ OUT to the TAPE IN for both the left and right jacks. You would then select the source of the music - be it CD, Phono, etc. and with the EQ powered, pressing the TAPE MON button on the receiver, you could hear the difference between the EQ in the circuit and the EQ out of the circuit.

The key in the examples above is that there is always an input connected to an output. Don't connect inputs to inputs and outputs to outputs. Take your time and work one cable at a time - one end to an input and the other to the corresponding output.

Some situations may arise if using Dolby Digital, THX, etc. type input signals. Sometimes it is not possible to equalize them. If you have sources (DVD, Satellite Receivers, etc.) that have an optical or coaxial connection, those will be the ones that may have undesired affects. The familiar RCA type jacks for left and right signals should work perfectly.

I'll see if I can find a link with a picture...

How to connect a sr430qx equalizer to abpm500 gemina mixer and a carvin dcm2000


All of three of these components have balanced connections. There are many different ways to connect- but this is the best option. You will need 4 x standard XLR3(cannon) mic leads. Starting from the Gemini mixer:
take the left output and plug it into channel 1(A) of the DOD EQ
take the right output and plug it into channel 2(B) of the DOD EQ
then...
Connect the EQ output of channel 1(A) to the input 1(A) of your Carvin amplifier
Connect the EQ output of channel 2(B) to the input of 2(B) of your Carvin Amplifier

Happy DJ'ing

I am trying to work 2 equilizers together in my stereo set


My big Q is - 'Why are you wanting to use two EQs in the first place, when one will suffice. But that is not for me to ponder over. :)

How are you trying to hookup the EQs? I have my eq connected between my preamp and amplifier. The other common method is to insert the eq in the tape loop between cassette and amplifier/preamp. Then select the tape loop to put the eq in the signal loop. You then connect your tape player through the tape monitor jacks on the back of the EQ and select this option in otder to play tapes.

If you have two tape inputs, then you can insert one eq into tape 1, and the other eq into tape 2 and choose accordingly. Bear in mind that you dont have to use the tape in order to use either EQ in your system. Just make sure you are using one EQ or the other. If you attempt to use both, then you run into potential signal 'corruption' (i.e. loss of datta or signal pumping, depending on the frequencies enhanced/attentuated).

How to connect eq to audio amp


To EQ all audio sources you'll need to have a receiver/amp with either a tape monitor loop or a pre amp-in/main-out loop. Look for a button on the front labelled 'Tape Mon' or ins and outs on the back labelled pre amp-out/main-in. If you have these you can connect the outs from the amp to the ins on your EQ and then EQ outs go back into the amps ins. If you have a tape deck as well, the EQ's 'tape mon' jacks replace the ones it takes up on the amp, so just plug your tape deck in here.

Just remember that whether you have a tape deck or not, if you hang an EQ off the 'tape mon' loop you'll have to engage the 'tape mon' button/switch for playback with EQ.

If your amp doesn't have these loops you can still use EQ but you may be restriced to one audio component source. So say you wanted to EQ the playback from your CD player, you'd just connect the CD players output into the EQs input, then connect the EQ's output into the amplifiers input (for CD player). Then everything you play through the CD player will be EQ'd.
