    Looks to me like you just plug it into the RCAs in the far left, then plug the output RCAs into the RCAs on the left/middle and eq away.

    Re: need some help from you eq SQ guys on a set up fast

    Sq guys like to set their EQs to flat. SO go download a test tone generator and make a tone for each band on the EQ. Play a single tone and adjust the band on the EQ that corresponds with the freq. just move all the adjustments around till all the note sound the same volume. Then run a full sweep and listen for any swells in the freqs and see if you can't adjust it out if you hear a couple, but you might not be able to get to them all if there is a swell in an area the bands don't cover (The downside of a Graphic) but with an EQ the broad i don't thinkyou'll have too much of a problem.

    After this a lot of people like to boost the highs and the lows a bit, just move it around a little to your liking. Flat is a good place to start though.

    or play some pink noise and measure the frequency response with an RTA. then adjust accordingly. of course, most of us dont have access to an RTA, so call around to local shops or buy one.
