I've got a 9 band eq that hooks up tape2 style for my old kenwood 2ch that i got like 16 years ago,(5th or 6th grade) Basically the tape monitor sends signal out 2 channels, and accepts it back in on another two, allowing you to manipulate the signal more than a bass/treble knob allows. I wonder where that thing is, i should hook it up to the garage bookshelves...


I was definitely one of the 99%. But that sounds awesome. I have a crossover I've wanted to use because my receiver's lowest high pass crossover point is 100 hz, and I would like to let my mains extend down to 60 hz or so. problem is that if I put the crossover before the receiver, it doesn't do anything when I'm listening to the radio. So if I connect the crossover to that tape 2 output/input, it will do its business on all my inputs including the radio?

Should work, then if you want to bypass it, you can turn off the tape2 function. A lot of recievers will have "direct" modes too that will skip the Tape2 device.
