Default Simple I'm Sure...Wiring 2 Single Supplies to Make a Dual

I've searched the net for over an hour now. I'm replacing a junky dual tracking +/- 18 power supply with two single Acopian gold box supplies for my ADM console. My old dual supply has a +, a -, and a common, which is exactly what the audio pres need, + - and common. The two new single supplies have only a + and - each! How do wire them together to get the + - and common that my channel strips need? Thanks!

Put together + from the first psu, and - from the second psu together. This will now be your common rail.
Obviously the remaining - from the first, and + from the second will be.... - and +.

Best regards
