Question HU, EQ, and MP3 questions...

I have a few questions about the inputs/outputs of my head unit, EQ, as well as where should plug in my MP3 player that I listen to all the time.
I have a ALPINE CDA-9847 audio gear reviews - CD Player Review - Alpine CDA-9847
and a SOUNDSTREAM MPQ-7X0 Soundstream MPQ-7XO 7 Band Parametric Equalizer/EQ

The Alpine has 3 sets of RCA outs, (front, rear, and sub), and
the soundstream EQ only has 2 sets of RCA inputs, CD and AUX...

1. Do I run the MP3 player to the Alpine HU or in the AUX in of the EQ
(I have the pulg to run the MP3 player to the HU)

2. Since the EQ only has 2 sets of RCA inputs (one for CD and one for aux), do I use the front out on the HU, or the rear out on the HU, to go to the EQ.

~I have a 4 channel mid/ high amp and will be using all 4 channels...
~I will be using the CD player for comps...
THANK YA'LL FOR ANY HELP

Run the front output to the main input on the EQ, and as far as where to plug in the mp3 player...I would try both and just see if one sounds better than the other. Also make sure the signal coming from your headunit is flat.

I usually run it from my eq through the aux but you may find your self easier to change it from mp3 to radio to cd player all from one on just having everything on the radio then that of the eq and what he means by flat is the eq settings on the radio have to be flat
