    I've asked a similar question before- Sorry for the repetition. I have no need for an 18v outlet- can I reduce it to 9v?

    Or can I power any of the pedals on my board at 18v without...trouble?

    I wish it were the future now.

    nope, 18 is 18, and not meant for 9V pedals.

    I'm not an expert but I'm pretty sure some pedals need at least 9v but can be powered by more. Contact the manufacturers and ask, I'd definitely get their say so before trying it though. I do not dispute that 18 is 18 however, that part is true.
  4. Professionally designed equipment has minimum and maximum specifications for power sources. In some companies the marketing geniuses toss the engineering specs and dumb them down for the customer. In which case: good luck.

    You should write them and see if they'll develop the opposite of this: Voltage Doubling Cables, Voodoo Lab

    Something that can divide the voltage from one 18v to two 9v. Get on that.
