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.

First this solution will be fraught with potential problems:
1. There is no simple monitor outputs and inputs on the NR535.
2. The NR535 analog inputs/outputs are unbalanced, where the Behringer EQ is completely balanced (TRS or XLR)
3. Insertion of the EQ is analogous with inserting an effects device in an audio loop which in the case of analog surround will cause de-correlation or the companding sidechain making for non-compliance/performance issues.

OK, now the solution can be as follows:

Since the NR535 has a Zone 2 channel, you can use these L/R RCA outputs to make an effects loop. To do this you will need to make or buy RCA to TRS (1/4" phone Tip Ring Sleeve jacks) that you will connect from the Zone 2 outputs to the CH1 and CH2 inputs of the EQ. You will need another pair of the RCA to TPS to connect the output of the EQ back to one of the RCA analog inputs on the back of the Receiver.

Now once this is done, you will be able to Map Zone 2 input to any of the inputs other than the one you are using for the output of the EQ. Let's say you have mapped Zone 1 to your gaming station. This will patch the audio from your gaming station into the EQ and back into your previously connected analog input. At this point, you can leave Zone 2 and select your analog input which is your EQ output, which is your Gaming station. If you don't have any output, you may need to go back into the Zone 2 setup and adjust the volume level.

When you don't want the EQ in the signal chain, just select the input source other than the input used for the EQ's Zone 2 output.

I am not sure if this will work for all situations as you may have technical conflicts between analog and digital audio on some inputs. In any case, this will work with analog signals and I don't see any other simple solution for your case.

I hope this solution can help.

Can i hook up a eq to my pioneer VSX-D457 digital processor ?

Your unnamed EQ can probabaly work with the VSX if it attaches in the traditional Tape Loop fashion (outs to ins) BUT...

It will only work for 2-channel analog source material. Activation of a tape loop on a modern AVR disables all digital sources. But you will still be able to apply DSP to the sound coming through the EQ as you would with any other analog source.

How to connect kenwood GE 52 graphic equalizer to my sony str-DE345 any idea , please help me.thanks.I tried many combination but didnt work.

An EQ usually plugged between a preamp and an amplifier. You have a receiver. There's no connections that will let you do that. The only thing you can do is between a source(ie: CD) and the receiver. The CD will go in the eq and out of eq to cd input on the receiver

Im trying to connect a bsr xr eq to my avr687 denon receiver

If you want the EQ to affect the iPod music only, you can hook up the iPod output to the EQ input, then the EQ output to your receiver's AUX input (or DAT input, or whatever you're using to listen to iPod music.

If you want the option of using EQ for other signals as well, then you hook up the EQ to the TAPE inputs/outputs (TAPE OUT goes to EQ input, and EQ output goes to TAPE IN)

If you hook it up this way, then you have to select MONITOR or TAPE MON to get the equalized signal.

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.

Cant get equalizer to work with my receiver

This might work fish76, The EQ needs a in & out source to operate correctly? If you have audio device connected to an aux input disconnect that & connect the EQ to that audio device & then plug the EQ to the Sony receiver AUX input. The tape monitor is the most important source for hooking up an EQ device, so you are very limited on a total receiver or amp tonal connection source. The bottom line is you can only use the EQ if another audio source to plug into it & the EQ plugs to your pre-amp input on the back of your rec or amp

How do I connect a Marantz EQ 140 to a Marantz MR235 reciever through tape one (tape monitor) I am not confident that I have it hooked up correctly because I get music when the eq and tape monitor are on...

Dear driver800,
Don't you just love it when when someone who knows less than you do tries to answer your question? Why is it people who know little waste everyone's time with suggestions like "read the book"
On the back of your Marantz MR-235 you will find the RCA phono jacks marked Tape 1 Monitor Output these connect to the jacks labeled input on your EQ 140. The corresponding jacks labeled Tape 1 Monitor Input connect to the jacks labeled output on the EQ 140.

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.
