    Super nice preamp, looking to hear from someone that's good with preamps. Want to know if this preamp has ever been wired 18v instead of always 9v. Please let me know if you have a free moment. Thanks for reading post. :thumbsup: :bassist:

    I’m pretty sure that the TCT line, including the XTCT preamp are 9V only.

    When I installed a TCT preamp in my bass equipped with a two-battery holder, I simply wired the batteries in parallel for stouter 9V power.

  4. 18v would definitely cook the circuit unfortunately...
