Amplifi FX100

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

I've just purchased the Line 6 Amplifi FX100 unit and was wondering if there is a way to power the unit via battery when mobile and away from power source.?

 

Thanks so much in advance for any advice

Hi graffig,

 

If you would like to use an external power source (like a generator, mobile power), ensure that you are using the DC-1 Power Supply that came with FX100. 

The power source must offer at least 9 volts at 300mA to ensure that the FX100 works properly.

Well, the Amplifi doesn't have bass amp models, per se (it does have two Fender Bassman models, which is technically a bass amp), but I've used my Amplifi 150 and my Amplifi TT paired with a StageSource L2t as a bass amp with success. I think I may have used one of the Bassman models. There's also the Tube Preamp model which can give passable bass sounds.

Yes you can. Pretty easy to build yourself. Im sure there are schematics on the internet. You just need 3 or 4 9v batteries in parallel. Dont quote me on that. For the life of me I cannot remember the amperage of a single 9v battery. Anyway like they said you want a minimum 300ma, I would shoot for 500ma to 850ma to keep the batteries from running down too quick. and for the sake of your pedal put in an inline filter, (a capacitor and diode) to keep the current constant and going in the right direction, add the plug making sure the polarity is correct, throw it all in a little bag with a velcro closure and your set. If you use rechargeable batteries you wont need to buy new batteries for every gig. Hope this helps. If anyone sees a mistake I made then PLEASE feel free to correct me.
