8020's in Japan

I bought a pair of 8020's in Canada and was wondering whether the 20v difference in supply voltage between Japan and Canada will cause any problems?

Hi Julian,

The 20V lower mains voltage in Japan will most probably cause problems to the speaker. The amplifier will be working with a lower than normal voltage which can damage it or at least cause it to perform poorly. You should use a 100V to 120V step-up transformer while in Japan.
