You will not have any Problem What so ever.
18V is operating Voltage,
0.7A is Max of Current it (Power Adapter) is providing.

The Load (AR) is operating (Uses Current) between 0~0.7A (Even Less)
Therefore 1A Adapter is actually safer to use.

-------------------------------

Think as, your electric company supplies 100A Service,
and you have only AC is running at 10A.

My remote speaker system works with the batteries but not with the AC adaptor plugged in to the speaker.


I would suggest to check AC outlet first where adaptor is pluged in,if Ok measure output voltage from adaptor to see if there is any (using any voltage multimeter with AC/DC)
Check label on adaptor shold be writen AC or DC output ,and value 3V,6,9,12,24,48 etc...
If adaptor is ok then problem is power jack mounted in to the speaker (cold solder joints' or damage)

The power supplies / ac adapters for my AW-871 speakers were both lost in a recent move. The speakers show input of 15v center + but no power spec. Do you have a suggestion for replacements? Thanks for...


Higher voltage then required is not so recommended, internal circuit may over voltage driven. some power amp max limit may fall within 18V only. See this link If your speaker power less then 30w you can choose 15V 2A will do or else select higher spec.

I need ni-cad battery specifications for Acoustic Research AW-721 headphones. I bought replacement ni-cads but they don't charge when the headphones are placed on the headphone cradle/charger.


The AR AW721 headphones require 3 AAA NiMH batteries, not Ni-Cad. The original batteries are 1.2 volt, 550 mAh. I replaced mine with Energizer 850 mAh AAA batteries, which work well and actually last longer per charge than the originals.

AC ADAPTER


The AC adaptor is a 9v 2.2a AC adaptor. You can also use a 12v 2.0a AC adaptor.

These are available at just about any electronics retailer.

JBL Creature 2 Blowing Fuse


There will be a short somewhere in the power supply. If you replace the fuse it will blow again. You COULD try a larger ampage fuse, but any electrician would not recommend this!
