They don't have a selector switch, but they can be changed back and forth. Just ask Johnson for the instructions. I think it's just a matter of making some soldering changes and swapping out the fuses.
Thanks for the confirmation, both!I wish! If it was switchable to 220V I'd be taking it with me... =)
I'm a fan of the CV5000. Good amp for a 5,000watt load @ 4ohm. Hummm, in fact....I think I just found my new amp choice for my 24's.
Yeah, I used to own a CV5000 a few years back. It's a heavy brute for sure. I'll be using one each @ a 4Ohm mono load for each 24".Thanks for the confirmation, both!
Glad to have been even a little bit useful, popalock I generally feel like I'm sucking up useful info from this place but not necessarily giving enough back, so I'm glad to have prompted a decision in your mind lol
Mine shall be stereo 2Ohms when it's finally up and running!
(On a side note - don't forget the CV5000 weighs as much as the moon... lol)
Can you tell us nosey people your intended destination country?
I was just thinking about your shipping weight considerations! lolYeah, I used to own a CV5000 a few years back. It's a heavy brute for sure. I'll be using one each @ a 4Ohm mono load for each 24".
I'll be heading to Doha, Qatar (aka: the hottest place on earth, aka: death valley's cousin, aka: 133°F in the shade) for a few years.
Good looking out on the shipping weight and the insight on the region. I'm pretty sure we will be able to utilize the military APO shipping system, so I'll take that route if necessary.I was just thinking about your shipping weight considerations! lol
That region is great for earning a LOT of money but the employment rules and also class hierarchy can make life tricky for those from 'outside', as I understand it. That said, english-speaking westerners are near the top of the tree so you will be fine!
It will be interesting to hear your views once you get out there, I would like to go myself
Cool, hope you can post a completely off topic but interesting thread with some pictures! I'm not jealous at alllll, noooooo....Good looking out on the shipping weight and the insight on the region.

As for the region, the wifey and I each have about 4 years under our belts living and working in the middle east. I'd say we are more familiar with the culture than most, but we understand and respect that every country has subtle cultural nuances that make each unique.
We will definitely make the best of it.
Has anyone successfully added a pot to the power board? If so can you tell me the part number that I would need to get one for my board? I measured my amp according to Johnson's instructions and it's nowhere close to his stated values. That might explain why my amp keeps clipping at moderately high volumes.Quote:Originally Posted by Trike
That's correct. So they're having me try a 1k resistor from the original 2.8k to drop the output voltage. Doesn't seem to matter though, the output voltage stays put at 204v.
Can you please post a picture of your power supply board?
There is a trimmer besides the power bank capacitors. The voltage is too high that is why the protection circuit is kicking in.
Most likely power board. Easy fix if you can solder. Easier fix if you have them send you the board and get a pro to do it.. Total cost in parts is probably $20-$50
