88 x 160 x 31mm (3.46 x 6.30 x 1.22″); 590 grams (1.3 lbs.) – weight and dimensions of power supply only, not including cables or packaging.
The 1 SPOT Pro CS6 can be used anywhere in the world without the use of a step-up or step-down transformer. Like our 1 SPOT, it transforms wall voltage from 100-240Vac, and converts it into the stated voltages on the bottom of the unit.
Available Output Voltages
Outputs 1-2: 9VDC (500mA)
Outputs 3-4: 9VDC or 18VDC (100mA)
Outputs 5-6: 9VDC or 12VDC (200mA)
Power cables (all are center pin negative polarity):
1) DC26(5.5×2.1mm barrel plugs; 26″ (660mm) Purple
(1)Â DC22 (5.5×2.1mm barrel plugs; 22″ (559mm) Blue
(1)Â DC18 (5.5×2.1mm barrel plugs; 18â€ (457mm) White
(3)Â DC12 (5.5×2.1mm barrel plugs; 12â€ (305mm) Yellow
(1)Â MC2 Two 5.5×2.1mm barrel plugs with 5.5×2.1mm input socket.
(1) CL6 (5.5×2.1mm barrel input, 5.5×2.5 barrel output; reverse polarity)
Green for Line 6 DL4/M9/etc. and some Eventide pedals.
(1) CYR (5.5×2.1mm barrel input, 5.5×2.1 barrel output; reverse polarity)
Red reverse polarity converter
(1) C35 (5.5×2.1mm barrel input, 3.5mm male output; tip positive)
Black 3.5mm (1/8″) plug converter
(1) CBAT (5.5×2.1mm barrel input, Black battery clip output) Connects to battery clip wires inside pedals that do not have DC jacks. Do NOT connect to a battery!
Can the 1 SPOT Pro power my pedal?
That question can best be answered by looking at the following questions and notesâ€¦
Which output and settings do I use for my pedals?
It is important for you to know the power requirements for your pedal. For every pedal that you are going to power via the 1 SPOT Pro CS6, you need to know the following:
What is the voltage required by the pedal?
Does the pedal require AC or DC voltage?
What is the polarity of the pedal? (Center pin positive or negative.)
These questions can usually be answered by:
1. Inspecting the pedal itself near the power jack.
2. Referring to the owner’s manual.
3. Checking online, or contacting the manufacturer
4. If your pedal can be powered by a 9Vdc battery, it can be powered by one of the 9Vdc outputs ( an exception being the Boss ACA pedals, see below).
Notes on using certain pedals with the 1 SPOT Pro CS6:
- Some older Boss pedals require 12Vdc, yet can be powered by a 9Vdc battery. They will indicate â€œUse ACA adaptorâ€ near the power jack. To power an ACA pedal please use outputs 5-6, and set to 12Vdc on the DIP switch for the corresponding output. Modern Boss pedals will indicate â€œPSA,â€ and can be powered by any of the CS6™s 9Vdc outputs.
- Many germanium based fuzzes and Octavia-style pedals will require the use of the CYR adaptor to reverse the polarity to center pin positive.
- For pedals with high milliamp draws such as Strymon, please utilize outputs 1 or 2 that produce 500mA each.
- Eventide pedals such as the Time Factor and H9 may be powered by outputs 1 or 2 with the addition of the CL6 converter, for proper DC jack tip size and polarity.
- Line 6 M5 may be powered by outputs 1 or 2.
- Line 6 M9, and the modeling pedals (DL-4/MM-4), may be powered by outputs 1 or 2, and will also require the CL6 converter.
- Line 6 Tone Core pedals may be powered by any 9Vdc output.
- Line 6 POD or M13 cannot be powered by the 1 SPOT Pro CS6.
- If more 9Vdc pedals need to be powered, an MC5 daisy chain (sold separately) may be plugged into any of the 9Vdc outputs depending on mA draw. For adding one more pedal, use the included MC2 cable.
- Pedals that do not utilize a power jack, yet are powered normally by a 9Vdc battery, may utilize any 9Vdc output, along with the CBAT converter.
- TC Electronic Nova pedals may be powered by outputs 5-6 in the 12Vdc position.
- TC Electronic Classic and Tone Print series may be powered by any 9Vdc output.
- Digitech Whammy: Versions 1-4 cannot be powered by the 1 SPOT Pro CS6. Version 5 or Whammy DT may be powered by outputs 1 or 2.
- Radial Tonebone 15Vdc pedals can be powered by a 18Vdc output, using the Reverse Polarity Converter (CYR) included with the 1 SPOT Pro.
- Note: Outputs can each handle more than the stated mA number. However, it is important to never exceed the max. current rating of all outputs simultaneously.
