SA3 amplifier to move to Europe : capability of the transformer ?

Hi,

I posted a message regarding the fact I wonder how to use my SA3 amplifier bought in the USA in a country supplying 220 Volts & 50 Hz.
Since you troubleshooted your device till the transformer, you may tell me the possibilities (compatible, with only connector issue ; or, upgrade possible by opening the device ; or, only way is to use an external voltage converter to buy).
Thanks !

The transformer in the SA amps will need to be changed or you will need a voltage converter

While living in the States I purchased a Bose Acoustimass 10 system but have now moved back to the UAE. As the system operates on 115 volts ONLY I would like to get it work on 240V without having to use a step-down transformer. By changing out the transformer form 115v to 240v will it work or will I have to change any other components within the system. Can anyone help me??

Change from 110 to 220 volts transformer


It sounds like the replacement 220 volt transformer is putting out too much power, as replacing a 110 volt transformer with a 220 volt one should have no effect on other components, as the output voltage and amperage should be the same as the original one.

If it has a voltage selector switch it to 208V or whatever is closest. OR, buy a transformer that converts the local power to 110V.

Hi
Most  transformers have a thermal fuse fitted, this can be bypassed/replaced  to get the amp working again. Are you up to having a go at fixing it?

Bose say you should pay to get it converted because over time the slightly different power cycles can effect it, however it will still works fine if you change the voltage with an adapter - like I did!!!

About converting from 110 volt to 220 volt Sonance Cinema 5150


Yes no problem all you need is a transfromer that converts 230volts AC to 110 volts AC.

Have a look in your yellow pages to find a Transfromer company
located in your vincinity.

You will need to visit him with the wattage of your amplifier and order a step down transfromer. (The wattage is found on the small plate on the rear of the amplifier. Sometimes its written as KVA?.

Please ensure that the plug on the amplifier is changed to specially fit the 110v output of the transformer this is a must as people plug the wrong plug into the wrong socket and burn out the amplifiers.

Cheers YUBEUT.
