Pedal Power AC auxiliary to power amp

Post by Binnibo » Sun Apr 06, 2014 12:40 am

Hi. It says in the manual for pedal power 2 plus:
"Do NOT plug in your
amp here!"
In the ac aux that is.

But it also says 200 watts max.

So my question is; can i run an Excelsior 13 watt guitar amp ( it says 75 watts on back of the transformer, 230).

Thanks!

75 is less than 200... Plug that bad boy in and get to rocking!

Just wondering if the AC Auxiliary port is safe to power the new Vox MV50 AC Amp Head.

http://www.voxamps.com/uploads/SupportP ... EFGSJ1.pdf

I checked the online manual of the amp head, it says the following
> Power Supply: AC Adapter DC19V (-) to (+)
> Current Consumption: 3.43A

So based on the conversion Watt = Voltage x Amp, this would mean 19V * 3.43A = 65.17W.

So, will this be safe since the AC Auxiliary outputs Max 200Watt.

EDIT: Also, the AC Auxiliary is currently powering my Strymon OJAI... so my other question would be, is it safe for AC Auxiliary to power the Vox MV50 as well as an OJAI PSU unit.

Thanks,
Spnach

It should be no problem to power both of these using the Courtesy Outlet.

Good Luck!
