I fear I already know the answer to my question here! :roll:
I have just purchased a pedal power 2+, as a matter of fact I should receive it today. I thought I had done my research throughly, but it appears not.
I was reading on your Web site & now on the forum that the max mA this supplies is 250, which works for all my pedals except for the BBE sonic maximizer which needs 12v @ 300 MA. Am I correct to assume the pp 2+ is not going to work for this? I read where someone else might use the courtesy outlet to power a pedal he has, is this my only option here? Thanks!

Exactly which model Sonic Maximizer do you have?

Hmm... according to the Specifications Page on the BBE site this pedal actually draws about 200mA, however it suggests that it requires 12VAC. Actually it very confusingly says this:

"DC inlet +12 VAC min. 200ma"

I don't even know where to begin with that! :shock:

If it does actually require 12VAC then it will have to be powered from its included power adapter since the Pedal Power front panel outputs are all DC. You can certainly use the Courtesy Outlet for the power adapter.

I hope that helps!

Check out your Acoustimax Power Adapter, particularly the Output Spec. It should say if it is outputting 12VAC or 12VDC. It might have a wavy line for AC or a straight line with a dashed line underneath for DC

~ = AC

__
--- = DC

Well it looks like we have already found the answer to this here before...

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2594&p=8632&hilit=acoustimax#p8632

AC only. This will have to use the original power adapter.

I hope that helps!

Thank you for your response! When I get home I'll check that out and get back to you.

John, I just read the rest of your posts here & the link. I truly appreciate your time and effort here helping me get clarification! Kinda crazy with BBE!! I was preparing myself for this outcome... Will the outlet keep the wall wart clean? Comforting to know I actually purchased the correct power source... The one with the outlet!!

Thanks!
Dean

The Courtesy Outlet is simply wired directly from the AC Inlet... no magic circuitry in between to make it any better or worse than plugging directly into the wall outlet ;)

Good Luck!
