6010A, 110v power

Hi,

I work in Taiwan for a few months and would like to know if I can use my Genelec 6010A on 110v.

I can see on the technical part "Mains voltage: 100, 120, 220 or 230 V", so I guess it's ok.
I tried to plug one speaker, it works ok but I can ear a light continuous sound...


Thanks for you quick reply,

Raphaël

Hi,

If your 6010A was originally made for 230V, you can't use it on 110V. There are different versions for different mains voltages. If you want to use your speakers there, you need a step up transformer for them.

Ok, thank you for you quick response.

A step up of 50Watts per speaker is enough or should I have more?

Ideally the power of the transformer should be at least three times of the maximum power consumption of the device, so 100W per speaker or 200W for both.
