PAiA 6760 Parametric EQ info

Post by PAiA-Scott »

Hello Ed.

Thanks for writing with an interest in the PAiA 6760 Parametric EQ. Sorry, but no, we do not have details for this in pdf form. We're working towards making the kit documentation in a form that can be accessed through our site, but it could be a while before it's all there.

The 6760 Parametric EQ is an older kit for us, from back at a time we had a rack-mount road-case that could be used to hold a power supply unit and multiple, rack-mount devices. In the series was the Vocoder, Quadrafuzz, Dual Limiter, Hyperflange+, Master Synchronizer, a Power Supply, etc... All these devices were made with the intent of connection to this external, regulated, dual-dc power supply (or some other functional equivalent).

So, when you order the Parametric EQ kit and panel accessory items, you have the pieces to make the kit mounted to a rack-mount panel. Wires connect this unit to a power supply (use our 9770R-12 or 9770R-15, or similar). There are eight 1/4" phone jack connectors on the unit for the four channels of eq/ualization (frequency). These can work individually, or combined in series or parallel. Used as four individual channels, you have four inputs and four outputs. There are three controls for each of the four channels--Frequency, Q (width), and Boost/Cut. Series connection can be two-channels of two-band control or one-channel of four-band control. Parallel use is by sending one channel to all four inputs and mixing the four outputs back to one.

Building the kit and panel with a power supply would result in a board fixed to the rack-panel and wires to the power supply board with wires from it to a wall-mounted ac transformer. The installation in a case, chassis, cabinet, etc. would be left to you. A piece of wood or cardboard can hold the pieces steady and prevent the solder side of the boards from touching anything that might cause trouble for testing and or subsequent use. Rack-mount road cases are available and would finish things off, but can be pricey. Project boxes can be found at RadioShack,,,, etc...

Thank you.

Sincerely, Scott Lee
