      Is anyone powering the H9 with a Cioks DC5?

      I feel like I’m getting conflicting answers about how to run the power with DC5, and before I start “trying” things, I wanted to see if anyone is already having success.

      Eventide’s site say the H9 needs:

      “9VDC, 500mA, center pin(+)”

      I’ve gotten some feedback from Pedalshark:

      “According to Poul Ciok the 300ma 12v section of the DC5 will power the H9 with no problem.”

      Any insght would be great! Thanks in advance.

      I have Cioks DC8, however Cioks say 300mA@12V is safe, Eventide recommends 500mA@9V or 400mA@12V, I have connected two outlets 100+300mA@12V with parallel flex adapter (which  sums max. current from outlets) to meet Eventide’s recommendation for safe operation. I have run Timefactor at 300mA@12V output without issues, though.

      I’d also be interested if anyone has successfully powered an H9 with a DC5.

      Yes i use cioks dc5 just got it last week and mounted it under my pedaltrain mini and it works like a using shure glxd16 wireless and mooer black secret and h9 and loop it with mxr noise clamp and ive never been happyer works like a charm and they say it works for eventide on their website so i ordered it imediatly.

      im using cioks dc5 to power my H9.. using 12v and combine 100+300 mA using pararel cable.. works great

      I’m actually powering 2 of them with 1 DC-5 using both 12V connections.

      metro6audio : do you combine 300mA with 100mA like i do? or just use the 300mA for 1 H9?

      Just to make it clear for everyone. You can power the H9 or any other Eventide pedal by using one single 300mA outlet set to 12V ad using the green Flex cable.

      You can power any two Eventide pedals with the two 300mA outlets of DC5, remember the 12V setting and the green Flex cable.

      And BTW, you can’t use the #8800 parallel adapter Flex with two outlets with different current ratings. The two outlets used MUST have the same voltage (voltage setting) and the same current rating. So for ex. using two 300mA on the DC5 both set to 12V with #8800 parallel adapter Flex will power say a Kingsley tube pedal which needs 12V and 500mA…. or the Line6 M9, yes the M9, just remember the 12V setting on both 300mA outlets, use the #8800 parallel adapter Flex followed by the green Flex. The M9 draws just below 500mA at 12V DC.
