Anybody using any ONE SPOT products with their HD500X?

Thanks to Dana at True Tone, found a way to use the ONE SPOT, The Multi Plug 5 Cable, and a couple of their adapters, and now I can use just the single ONE SPOT wall wart with the 5-cable & the adapters.  This single ONE SPOT wall wart will now be the sole power supply for the Line 6 HD500X, The Line 6 G30 Wireless Receiver, Boxx FB-2 Feedback, and the Morley ABC switcher.  Voila, done!  The Morley only needs power to light up the LED's, so there's next to zero power draw.

First, you’ll plug the standard DC cable from the power supply into the CYR (red) adapter.  This reverses the polarity to a positive tip.  Next, plug in the L6 (green) adapter.  This reverses the polarity back to a negative tip and gives you the bigger center pin.  Plug the L6 (green) plug into the Line 6.   That way you have a negative tip polarity with the 2.5mm center pin. 
 

CYR – Reverse Polarity
L6 – Reverse polarity + 2.5mm center pin.

This information does not seem accurate. According to the FAQ, the plug is 5mm with a 2mm center pin.

 

DC-3g: (POD HD 300/400/500 and HD Bean): 9V DC, 3A (3000mA) Plug length: 15mm, Diameter: 5mm, Center Pin: 2mm.

 

I cannot seem to find that size adapter anywhere in an aftermarket option, as I am looking for a way to get a cord 10' long or better.

 

It seems using the OEM adapter is best due to the 3Amp rating, so I don't know how a 1 spot could handle this safely, since if the device draws more amps than the rating, it could be a fire hazard.

The plug center pin is NOT 2mm. I spent $20 finding this out the hard way. It is 2.5mm. The FAQ is wrong.

I can also confirm its incorrect in that document and infact 2.5mm. I also bought a psu in error because of that.

 

Thank you both for confirming this. Hopefully they update that. So then it is a 5.5 x 2.5mm?

I am looking to just extend the OEM adapter a bit, since the cord is so short.

Thanks all.

I am not sure the One Spot puts out enough juice TBH, I think it puts out ~ 1700 mA max and the HD's is ~ 3000 mA. My general rule of paranoia usually defaults to using the factory PS.

Important Clarification as I have not revisited this thread for a bit.

Since the HD500X factory wall wart adapter has a higher amp rating in order to provide the HD500X with its required power, the factory supplied HD500X wall wart is what I am using to power via the 5 plug daisy chain.  The HD500X is first in line to receive power, then the other units, all of which have been confirmed by True Tone to bear the tolerances necessary to protect them from any potential overpowering.

 

I am NOT using ONE SPOT's wall wart, but I am using their 5 plug daisy chain.
