Hi, the equalizer input is from the head unit preamp outputs and the equalizer output goes to the input jacks of the amp. There should be only 2 channels in and 2 (or sometimes 4) out of the equalizer. If you need more help, please provide model numbers of the head unit, equalizer, and amplifier and tell me all of the speakers you are trying to hook up.

I have a Teac Ag D9100 Receiver how do you install a equalizer


Best way to hook up equalizer is see if receiver has preamp outputs that can be connected to amp inputs. If so hook up equalizer to them and you are in business. Or you can hook up equalizer to the output of the device you want equalized and then hook up the EQ output to any receiver input.

Amp out and amp in for bose eq.hook up

    Examine your receiver to be sure it has a tape monitor loop. Receivers with a tape monitor loop will have a button or switch on the front for "Tape Monitor," and have two sets of RCA connections on the back, one labelled "Tape In," and the other "Tape Out."

    Take the two cables that are provided with the 901 speakers and insert one end of the first cable into the "Amplifier Input" jacks of the equalizer. Connect the red connector to the R input and the other connector to the L input. Connect the other end of this cable into the "Tape Out" connections on the receiver. Again, hook red to R and the other to L.

  • 3

    Connect the second cable between the "Amplifier Output" jacks of the 901 receiver and the "Tape In" connections on the receiver. Follow the guidelines in Step 2 for R and L connections.

    Plug the 901 equalizer into a 120-volt electrical outlet. Your 901 equalizer is now installed.

    I have four bose 901 speakers and one equalizer. I also have a peavy deca 424 amplifier. I have a tape deck with the tape monitor capabilitity. Can these work together and how do I hook theme up?


    The presence of 1/4" TRS balanced phone jacks instead of RCA inputs is a problem; and the 1/4" TRS speaker output jacks, too. You'll need to acquire cables with compatible ends.

    The amp can handle 4-ohm loads so running two 901's parallel on each channel would theoretically work, but I'd put them in series just to keep from presenting too low a load when you get cranking. At 230 wpc you've got the juice. From Series 4 on the 901's are very efficient.

    The Tape Deck will attach conventionally to the Tape Loop on the Active Equalizer.

    Once you get the physical wiring compatibility issues worked out:

    Patch the Active EQ directly between any source you may be using (Amp In from the Pre-Out of the source, Amp Out to the Peavey input).

    You can record the external source onto the attached Tape Deck and you can monitor it by pressing the Tape switch on the 901 EQ.

    Start out at low volume and see how it works before turning it loose.

    How can i test my rca output jacks with a test light? pioneer deh p3100ub. hooked up spkr, nothing. tried one rca plug to white(lt) and then red(rt). Unit has 4 rca jacks, 2 for subwfr and 2 for front...


    :) the rca jacks have to be connected to an amplifier,, their signal is too lay to even light a bulb.. you have to connect it to a car amplifier and then from the amplifier to the speakers..

    Just so you'd know,, once your deck plays and you hear music on your speakers through your normal speaker wires,, RCA jacks work..

    Ok you have 4 jacks,, 2 subs and 2 front.. These should connect to a preamp,, which takes 4 inputs and allows you to equalize or adjust how the music should sound,, now from the pre-amp,, it runs to an amplifier,, thats powers the subs and another that powers the speakers.. Some amps have 4 inputs so you can use one amp for your subs mids and heights..

    for example a basic music system is

    1 cd player
    1 pre amp
    1 amplifier (4 inputs, 4 channel out)

    you bridge 1+2 and connect this to 1 12" double coil sub woofer

    the next 2 connect to 2 mid speakers example "rockford or ev 5 / 8 " and 2 tweeters for heights..

    Thats a kicking tricked out basic car audio system,,,

    Hope that helps you understand how it works..

    Hi, I just purchased a used set of 901s with the original active equalizer. they are both series VI and were bought together. Unfortunately, the man misplaced the installation instructions for the...


    If no Amp is used, connect jacks ( Left, Right) from your receiver output to Bose equalizer Input ( L, R) where it says Amplifier. Then also under where it says Amplifier, connect jacks from Output to your speakers. This would require the type of speaker wires that are RCA (plug in, red and white) on one end bare wire on the other to the speakers.
    I don't know what the output is on your Kenwood, but if it's low watts, an amp is much better to crank those Bose. It's a different connect with an amp. Go L &R from the receiver to Equalizer as before, then from equalizer to amp Input where it says Tuner. then hook bare speaker wires to back of amp to Bose speakers.
    You should have full use of Bose controls. The Monitor button is for an extra component that can be hooked up on the back, right side of equalizer.

    Amp is on but wont work...please help!!


    Hello lillj2323,

    OK, you say that the amp won't get your RF Punch's to pound. You do not say if you get any output at all. So let's start from the beginning.

    The KAC-X542 is a multichannel amp with 2 sets of stereo outputs, 1 set of stereo outputs and 1 bridged connection for sub(s), or 2 bridged connections for sub(s).

    Make sure that both 30A fuses just to the left of the power connections are good.

    Check that the "ID number" is set to "0". Make sure that you have RCA inputs to both channels A and B (leftmost pairs of jacks). Your subs should be connected to the 1st (+) and 3rd (-) of each set of output terminals.

    Make sure that there are no broken off plugs or pins in the jack marked "H/U Terminal" or either of the 2 jacks marked "remote".

    Check that the amp is set up for 2-channel bridged. The 6 switches below the filter controls and the filter pots should initially be set:
    1 - Middle position (off)
    2 - Up position (on)
    3 - Down position (off)
    4 - Up position (mono)
    5 - Down position (off)
    6 - Up position (mono)
    The pots should be set approximately:
    LPF - minimum
    HPF - maximum
    Input Sensitivity - match your head unit - probably between 1 - 3
    HPF - maximum
    Input Sensitivity - match your head unit - probably between 1 - 3
    After you get the speakers working, the LPF, HPF and Input Sensitivity can be tweaked for best sound and lowest distortion.

    Hope this helps.

    Aux input on Soundstorm amp


    If the amplifiers have RCA jacks, you can use an adapter cable to go from the headphone jack to the RCA inputs on the amp. If you're in the U.S., Radio Shack will likely have what you need.

    Car amplifers,,,,kicker amp's RCA jacks!


    You could do a couple things if your head unit has all three outputs, then take them and hook them into the inputs. If you have just the front and the rear outputs, hook those to the inputs front and rear. Then hook the output of the 4 channel to the input of the mono block. I hope this helped
