Default rewire for 220VAC

If inside there are any unused taps on the transformer it
might be possible internally. Remember. . .we are stepping down
the voltage from 120VAC to 40VAC (about 3:1 wind ratio). In a
220VAC situation. . .we will need an almost 6:1 wind ratio to result
the same 40VAC output from the transformer.

Or you could buy a step-down transformer that plugs into the wall
and steps the voltage down before the amp.

Or you could test the voltages and buy a 220VAC version of the
transformer and wire it in. . .internally or externally. . .

Good Luck and let us know how it goes.

To those of you on this site. I regret to inform you that "Testlab" is no longer with us. This is his wife and he passed away August 10, 2006. His real name was Al Sekeet and was a wonderful man.

Please remember him in all of your prayers as his is making the music in heaven sound so much better.
