Diago Micropower9

  • Diago Micropower9

    9V 1000mA Effects Pedal Power Supply

    The Diago Micropower9 is a smaller version of the Powerstation. Using the same low-noise, switch mode technology as its bigger brother, it's quiet, light, efficient, and tiny.

    The Micropower9 serves as a perfect direct universal replacement for hundreds of other proprietary ugly, bulky wall warts, as well as being ideal for smaller pedal boards of up to 6 pedals, when used with the Diago Deluxe Daisy Chain.

    For pedals that do not follow the Boss convention of 2.1mm, centre-negative barrel plugs, a wide range of Adaptors that allow the Micropower9 power virtually any pedal.

    Boss ACA 12V Pedals

    Icon 01

    Q) I have an old Boss ACA style pedal that requires 12V DC, yet you say that your Powerstation (which is 9V DC) can power it?

    A) Yep - just so long as you're powering at least one other normal 9V pedal in the chain, then it'll work just fine. The old Boss ACA pedals use 9V batteries don't they? The DC input jacks on the back are hooked up to a current limiting resistor to drop the internal voltage from 12V to 9V. Hooking up a 12V ACA pedal with one or more other 9V pedals bypasses this resistor so that it will work just fine with a highly regulated 9V supply like the Diago Powerstation. So why design pedals to run from 9V batteries or a 12V power supply? For those who are interested.......... At the time when Boss first started making pedals, unregulated power supplies were the norm. With an unregulated power supply; as the current load is increased (in this case as you try to power more and more pedals) the voltage drops. If the voltage drops your pedals can either sound crap or there may not even be enough voltage for it to work at all. So Boss designed their unregulated pedal power supply to be 12V DC, and put a current limiting resistor in the DC input of every pedal, so that different loading wouldn't have so much of an effect on the 9V needed to power the pedal. Now that we have access to well regulated supplies, it's not an issue any more.

    Q) You say the Powerstation can power the Line 6 Stompbox Modellers (DL4, DM4, FM4 & MM4), yet the Powerstation is 9V DC and they require 9V AC. How does that work?

    A) The official Line 6 adaptor is 9V AC. However, like most pedals and other electronics, the Line 6 Stompbox Modelers are powered by 9V DC internally. Next to the power input socket on the back is a bridge rectifier (which converts AC to DC) on the power input, so it can be powered from 9V AC or DC. The Green Adaptor is designed so that 9V DC bypasses the bridge rectifier. It works just fine with no problems and no detrimental effect on your pedals. You want further proof? The Stompbox Modelers can also be powered by batteries - batteries are DC....
