Changing the mains voltage on 8040

Changing the mains voltage on 8040

I just brought 8040's from Finland to the US. Before plugging in I realized that there's no switch for the voltage.

Does anyone know if it's possible to find a switch to change the mains voltage setting on a 8040 (somewhere behind the back panels)? It's fairly common for manufacturers to have the different settings (230&110) under a switch for cheaper manufacturing costs.

I know I can always use a transformer...

Don't take my word as gospel but I also bought the 7260 sub in Belgium and have the same problem using it in North America. Not only is there no voltage switch (a real PITA), since I don't want to add the noise of external voltage converter, I'm going to have to replace the entire transformer in order to use it in North America. I suspect you only have the option of either changing the transformer or using an external voltage converter as well.

Damn! I guess that's what I'll have to do...
