Hello, I want to resurrect my old G1 Rack by making it mobile. I want to be able to walk around in public while feeding its sound into a JVC ghettoblaster.

Now I wonder which way is the best to go or better if one of you nerds here has some experience with that task maybe.

I am wondering if I could directly use a 12 Volt battery (or whatever voltage is needed) or if I better should transform 12 Volt into 220 Volt and leave the modulars housing closed.

Thanks a lot for any idea!

Martin.

Hi Martin and welcome to the forum.

In the old days there was something like the Modular Einsatz Kommando .. lemme google .. hmm .. can not quickly find it .. Joker Nies from Cologne was part of that ...

Anyway, they used Micro Modulars with battery supply so they could walk around and beep ... but with a micro it is easy, as that one uses a DC wall wart.

How scared are you about hacking the rack?

If you'd cut out the transformer traces from the PSU board ... but first you would have to measure the voltages a bit ... I've done that once but forgot .. but there is nothing over 12 Volt going to the main board, I remember that.

looking at power ratings now ...

grmpf .. no label there .. anyway .. a step up converter from 12V DC to 220V AC should always do the trick - one of them car thingies, like 75 Watt should be plenty.
