I've a pod x3 live US version with the adapter based on 110V, but i live in Italy with the 220V. I'm already using a power adapter for notebook with 9V and 5000mA, i can continue to use this or the high ampere can change the signal? when I use the clean sound i've a problem: when i play softly the strings on my guitar (or another guitar) the sound have a little distortion.

Is the notebook adapter AC to AC? If it is AC to DC then you could kill your POD. I would get the proper PX-2 from somewhere like Thomann:

The X3 adapter is AC not DC.  The new HD500, HD500x use a DC supply.  They are not interchangeable.  Adapters that are AC are rare.

The only way to know is to try the proper supply. You may be lucky, it is not necessarily damaged. Good luck.
