Help with routing using Pedal Power 2+

Post by Logic_11 » Fri Apr 03, 2020 4:31 pm

Hello all, I recently got a larger pedalboard and power supply from a local shop. I also bought a few pedals from them, but I don't think I'm using the power supply as I should. I kind of put it together as best as I could, but I was wondering if there was a better way to do it. I would like to use only the front outlets (1-8) to power the mxr 18v and other pedals, but I'm not sure how to get the 18v.

These are the requirements according to their manuals
Tu-2 tuner - 9V, 55 mA
MXR Bass Compressor - 9V, 19 mA
Zoom 60b - 9V, 500 mA
Sansamp Bddi v2- 9V, 100 mA
Volume pedal - 0V, 0mA
Mxr 108s 10 band eq - 18V, 48 mA

I currently have
1 - tuner
2 - compressor
3 - sansamp
4 - (empty)
5 - zoom
6/7/8 - (empty)
I'm running the mxr 18v from the back outlet of the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 +

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's doable.

To power the Zoom use a Current Doubler Adapter, part# PPAP in outputs 5 and 6, DIP switch in the 9V (normal) setting with one of the all black (standard polarity) cables supplied..

To power the 18V MXR use any two 9V outputs with a Voltage Doubler Cable (standard polarity, 2.1mm), part# PPY.


Cheers!
