Questions about Paradigm PDR-12 Sub before I sell

I own a Paradigm PDR-12 sub which I purchased about 16 years ago in the USA. I am now living in South Korea (brought it over with me about 10 year ago), and selling it locally in Korea. My question relates to the AC input power that it will accept. I have always run it on 110v, or using a 110v converter, when here in Seoul, as AC power in Korea is 220v.

I was looking at the back of the PDR-12, today, and noticed the following where the power cord enters the sub:

120v
60Hz
200VA


Does this mean that it will also accept 200v, and possibly 220v?
I have always assumed not, and the literature on the Paradigm website didn't seem to specify. I am still working under the assumption that this 200VA number has do to with amperage.

Also, I'm not actually sure what version this sub is (so that I can provide proper specs in my ad), so if anyone knows exactly... the Model/Serial Number is: PDR-12 28105.

If this will work safely on 220v, it would be much easier to sell here.

Thanks!

Call or email Paradigm’s technician department and give them your information. They would be able to help you better than any of us since they made it.

I don't think so. AFAIK, the amp should have a switch for 120/240 and/or specify that it can handle 120/240.

A second or later version would be tagged "v2" (or greater). Without that suffix, it's most likely an original version.

But I agree that a company rep can provide the most definitive answers.
