Hi,
My T1s are 50Hz 220v and I’m considering taking them with me to Canada as I’m finding it hard to sell them in my current country for a decent price.
I understand I’ll have to use a step-up transformer to supply power to my T1s in Canada.
1. What is the watt output required to drive them both?
2. Are they sensitive to a different line frequency (going from 50Hz to 60Hz)?

Thanks

You should have no issues with the 60 Hz or 50 Hz AC source, but for the step-up device, you should be use 1000 watt or higher rating per speaker.

OK, and how much will it cost to convert each speaker to 110v?
Is it only a matter of PSU replacement?
Can any authorized accept these units for such replacement?

You may purchase 120v amps for your speakers to convert them. Please contact our main office to arrange that. Phone number is +1-410-998-9134. Their hours are 9:30 am - 6:00 pm EST.

Hi,

As far as I understand, replacing the whole amp is insanely expensive (around $1000 each) which of course makes no sense. That’s why I have to find an alternative.
I really wish the internal amp had a switchable voltage and save me all this headache.

What is the actual maximum power consumption of the T1?
I find it odd it really reaches 1000w because it is a Class D amp. I had a 1600w class D sub and the maximum power consumption was 100w.

Thanks

Have you contacted our main office to get pricing on the amps? They can be swapped in the field fairly easily.
