Replacement Transformers for 1029a

Youngling Posts: 2 Join Date: 2/17/10 Recent Posts

I have a pair of 1029a's that I bought in Germany, these are 230V only, no switches for 120V. I'm in the US now.

I've fished out the power transformers... anybody know if there is a way to order a pair of 120V ones?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for your post and question. Now, the Genelec 1029A has hole clearly visible on its backpanel with a sticker tha says Voltage Selector. See Figure 3 in the Operating Manual - ... 0opman.pdf.

So, you should be able to simply select 120 V there.

Hope this is helpful.
Best regards,

Hey Chris,

Thanks for the reply. Dan got in contact with me... the switch is in fact hidden behind the sticker and a little black plastic plug. It isn't necessary to dissassemble the unit, but you need pliers and an exacto knife, see attached pictures.
