  • Memphis eq50

    I recently bought this equalizer (Memphis eq50), I have no instructions for it and the website doesn't offer any help either. It has three wires running out of the back... a red (positive), a black (negative), and an orange wire... what is this orange wire for?

    I had one of those a couple years ago. I dont remember what it was. That's the standard color for illumination
    Setup:
    Dynaudio 240GT
    PPI PC4100, PPI PC2350
    Zapco DSP6
    ADS DAC
    Testing new board (Albatron KI690-AM2)

          ahh...thanks... so the orange wire from my EQ would need to go to the red/black wire on the harness of the civic?

            I would be willing to bet that this wire is not an illumination wire but instead a remote wire so that the eq doesnt stay on all the time. Especially considering that from what I see in the pictures there is nothing that would need to be dimmed..

                  The lights come one...but it comes on even when I just use the orange wire and the ground wire....

                  (I am testing this with a 9v battery mind you, because it is not installed in the car yet ...)

                  Also...I went to the memphis site and they don't have manuels and don't honor internet sales...being since I bought it off of ebay, I think my best bet is to find a dealer and ask them what they are for.
