Hey guys it's been a long time!

Using jcm 800 heads and getting intermittent interference (noise, static, snow sounds) depending on the venues. Some shows are fine and other are really noisy.

Does anyone have a solution for noisy power (and not the cheap Furman glorified power strip)?

I used to have a Furman ar-117 that would regulate power from something like 100v- 130v and would put out a steady 117v that was quiet with no RFI or EMI noise. Is there anything out there that you know of that will clean up the power?

Thanks!
Mike

I use an APC BackUps 1500 with Digital PA Gear …… Works like a dream …… You would want to do the math but I think one of those would easily handle the amperage draw …… Clean Sine Wave AC even if the Mains get unplugged

Watts Drawn / Volts AC = Amperage

Thanks I will look that up. We've been running into inconsistent power a lot lately. Lots of old theaters and outdoor festivals with generators. Seems like the power has been especially noisy recently.

Might look into the Carvin AC120S has EMI/RFI Filters and other nice features and not too expensive

Thanks, just searched the ac120s and it looks very similar to the ar-117 minus the power regulator. Thanks for the info!
