  • Converting an overseas market Line6 amp to 120v

    Hello all,

    Looking to convert a Line6 Spider III 15 watt amp from 220-240v to 120V. I don't really want to go with an external transformer.

    I'm fairly handy with electronics so I think I can just swap the appropriate transformer (if I can find one), and replace the appropriate fuse. Considering the amp sold for less than $100 new/discounted, it isn't cost-effective to have an authorized repair center do the work (already checked). The problem is getting the part (at the service center's discretion)!

    I believe the US-model uses On-Tech transformer 1X-5730-04H0. The 1X-5730-04H0 spec is: I/P:100/120VAC 50/60Hz O/P:15.2VAC x 2/7.

    Out of curiosity I checked the no-load AC outputs for my transformer (2X-5730-04H0) when plugged into a 120v outlet. As expected, they read about half as high as the spec for the 1x- model.

    Anyone know where I might be able to find a suitable transformer (at a reasonable price)? Or perhaps there's a Line6 15 owner looking to move to a 220V country wanting to swap parts?

    Thanks!
