Px-2 Power Supply - Is The X3l One The Same As The Variax One

Recommended Posts

Am I right that the power supply for the X3L is the same as as the Variax power supply?

 

My X3L power supply died while I was using it outside on an extremely hot day. It is clear that the power supply has died - but if I can use the variax supply to test the X3L then at least I will know if the X3L has died as well.

 

Cheers

Sounds to me like the power supplies are the same. This is based on the following descriptions in the Line 6 Store (see link at top of page)

The PSU that comes with the Variax is a PX-2g 9V AC, same as the X3.

It's not the same power supply that comes with the JTV Variax though.

 

The X3L is 2000mA 9v AC, the JTV Variax is 1000mA 12v DC.  They are not compatible.

Thanks Silverhead - I will dig out my Variax PSU (I tend to use the X3L or my HD500 for the Variax so I don't usually need the power supply, but now I know it is worth having a look.

 

Cheers

 Thanks for the heads up - My Variax is a old 700.

 

Thanks

That's odd. The description of the Variax power supply in the store says it is compatible with the JTV guitars as well. It doesn't matter for John's purposes, but if there's an error in the published info we should look into it.

the JTV included power adapter is for the battery charger...

 

both variax gen1 and jtv's use the same power adapter if using the XPS box.
