    Icon32 Setting up a HU and EQ?

    Hi fellows,

    I am having a problem on deciding how to setup my HU and EQ. My HU is a Pioneer DEH-1000 and my EQ is a Pioneer DEQ-7600..

    The problem is that the HU and the EQ BOTH have a VOLUME control and I don't know the right way each should be used and which one should I use to control the volume...

    Also, since my HU has sort of a 3 band equalizer and some sort of treble and bass boost, should I just leave the HU FLAT without any boosting at all? Sort of like just having the HU supply the music without any tweaking and do all tweaking from the EQ???

    Thanks for any help!

    By the way, anyone has the DEQ-7600 eq? I bought mine used from eBay and it did not include the user manual so if anyone could maybe scan it or point me to a site where I can download it, it would be great!

    turn deck up to point just before it clips then back off a little. usually 3/4 up or so set deck flat and use your eq for what u bought it for

    This is the problem... While turning the deck up, where should the EQ's volume be set at? Ok, the max volume BOTH can display is 30... So, should I turn the EQ volume all the way up to 30 then turn the HU's volume up until the clipping point and reduce it a bit like you said? This would mean that if I leave the HU at this point, I can go MAX volume on the EQ and that would be the max volume without clipping?

    Ok, I think I get the point according to what you are saying... I want to use ONLY the EQ to control my volume, so I will just turn up volume on the EQ to the max of 30 then setup the HU volume asif I were setting up the gains on an amp, up until clipping then a bit down... Once I do this, I leave my HU alone and work with the EQ...

    Now, the max EQ volume is my system's max volume with no clipping! Thanks my friend! Very helpful of you!

    well use the EQ as the master volume control, and have the H/U eq'ed at neutral and adjust it slightly from the EQ

    I used to have the DEQ-7600 and DEH-P6000 and I think the manual states to set the volume on the eq to 23. Then you can turn the volume up as needed. I had the 3 band parametric eq adjusted as well as the 15 band eq. I REALLY REALLY enjoyed that eq. I would'nt use the eq to adjust the volume, don't set it to 30 either(makes a hissing noise is you do) Set the eq to 23 and control the system through the headunit. My setup sounded REALLY nice.....IMHO

    Ok, after the EQ, all I have are 2 amps, one for the components and one amp for the subwoofers... I have the subwoofer amp coonnected to the EQ's subwoofer output and the components amp to the FRONT output of the EQ

    if nothings hooked up to your headunit set the eq on it flat and use your eq for what it was made for using the volume depends on the eq and the headunit whichever works best with little distortion but the other guy is right dont turn the eq all the way up it could result in hissing noises and otherstuff
