Monolith 10 110volts to 220volts

svs and hsu has a tutorial on converting corresponding voltages..

svs is via remove jumper trick and hsu is a switch inside its psu..

Do you have any idea how to convert monolith 10 to 220volts?
monolith tech support seems bad.. They suggested a stepdown transformer..
pretty basic and common sense..

I don't see any indication that the monolith amp can handle 220V. It appears it is limited to 120V only. You would indeed need a step down transformer but that only works if the power frequency is still correct. If your power source isn't 60Hz, you will be at risk of doing damage.

From Monoprice's Q&A for the model:

Is the 10 inch THX subwoofer 120 VAC only, or can it run on European/Asian 220 VAC with replacement power cord?

I take it to mean that the sub isn't sold into the European market, so it may lack the power transformer taps that would give a simple change between North American and European voltages.

Unless you can find someone who has hacked the hardware and is willing to share information, Monoprice's suggestion may have to stand.
