    Ampeg SVT 3 Pro conerstion to 240V Australian

    Morning All, does anybody know if it is possible to convert an SVT 3 Pro, purchased new from the US to run on 240 volts Austrlalian? Is it just the wiring to the input power tranformer or is a new transformer required?

    It looks like the amp comes with a universal transformer, the schematic shows the various wirings for 100/120/230/240v operation. You'd also have to reduce the mains fuse by half. Not sure of any other changes. I think at most they would be the addition or removal of some small film caps.

    Send me an email with SVT 3 Pro Schematic as the subject line and I'll send it to you.

    Oh yes, and you are aware that US amps must be turned upside down to operate properly in Australia, are you not?

    I uploaded the file into the Ampix here, see if you can retrieve it from there first.
