New POD HD300 owner - power adapters
by jhdesign on 2011-11-01 07:21:11

Hey all.

I bought an open box demo that I don’t think it was on the floor very long but I’m going to do a factory reset today just in case it was modded.

Now, what I got in the box was 2 power adapters and the USB cable. The guys at the store were no help as they knew nothing about the POD line.

AC/AC Adapter

PX-2g; Part NO. 11-32-0005

This one is what I believe is the main adapter with a very heavy weighted square box with a 2 prong cord on one end and the input jack cord on the other end.


The second has a light weight box about 4 inches long and about 1 inch all round with the 2 prong plug on the end and one cord with the input jack.

So, what is this smaller adapter?

I can upload pics if needed.

Thanks in advance.

do not use the PX2!!!! thats the wrong adapter... (its for the older pods and supplies AC power)

use the smaller DC3G power supply.

The DC-3G is the one you want to use for your Pod HD. DO NOT connect the PX-2G to your Pod HD. It is used with the POD X3 (and older Pods).

The difference is particularly important because the DC-3G supplies the direct power that the Pod HD requires, while the PX-2G is an AC supply.

Thanks very much to both of you for the quick replies.

I was waiting for an answer before I used it today. Good thing as I had guessed the wrong one.


You had answered my questions last week about presets. Your last reply was to make sure I come back and hang which I will.

Thanks again, I’ll be back!

they use standard cables... its a USB AB cable... pretty typical for a USB printer, so you may even have one laying around.
