I have a Pioneer SG-540 stereo Graphic Equalizer that only works in the right channel, but more importantly puts out a large amount of excess humming moise and other unwanted sounds when the controls are adjusted. Thank-you

I use the sg 540 equalizer for cd and tuner. (I have two of them) I also use the sa 940 to power my sound. On the tuner input of the amp, i used standerd rca cables and connected it to the output of the equalizer. then i connected rca cables from the input of the equalizer to the output of the tuner. this only works when the top equalizer button is pushed on. hope it works for you.

How to hook up a pioneer 7 band gr 470 equalizer to a Kenwood kr-v6030 receiver


Connect one pair of RCA cables between the receiver and equalizer. Connect one pair of cables to the pre-amp output channels on the receiver and the other end of the cable to the left and right channel inputs on the equalizer. You will usually find these channels on the rear of the equalizer.

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.

Can I connect an external Technics SH-8036 Stereo Graphic Equalizer to my Technics SA-500 receiver?


You can but you will need to use one of the tape loops to do so. That means you will also have to use the tpae monitor switch of the front panel. Just get 2 sets of interconnects and run one from the tape out to the input of the equalizer and the other from the tape in to the out put of the equalizer.

RX-540 lights up but none of the channels for CD, Tuner, etc etc work. Sparks were coming out of the back. Equalizer levels were at Max and Volume was Low when the thing died.


the good thing is that sparks were coming out of the back, that way, when you open it up to look inside you can see what needs repalaced and trace it back to the failed component that fried it, if you are a technician
