I just picked up a DBX 1531x dual 15-band equalizer and am trying to integrate it into my system. I've got an Onkyo P-3030 preamp, a Yamaha MX-1000 power amp, and a pair of Polk RTA12a speakers.
The Onkyo pre has one set of RCA preouts (L/R), and the Yamaha power amp has one set of RCA inputs (L/R).
The DBX EQ has both 1/4" and XLR inputs and outputs.
I am trying to hook the EQ between the pre and power amp using cables with a 1/4" stereo plug on one end (to hook into the EQ) and left and right RCA plugs on the other end (to hook into the pre and power amp). The EQ has two input 1/4" jacks marked "A" and "B" and two output 1/4" jacks marked "A" and "B."
No matter how I try and make the connections, I am only getting sound out of the left channel/speaker. But oddly enough, when I hit the "bypass" button on the EQ--which I assume triggers a straight pre-to-power connection--the sound comes out of both channels/speakers.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
Here is a link to the DBX's manual if it helps: http://vintagedbx.free.fr/dbxpro/Man...%20Manual.pdf/
Thanks in advance!
