      In need of a larger pedalboard, I purchased a Temple Audio Duo 34. After consulting with Temple Audio about which power supply would be a good fit they recommended the Powermax. I read through the description on the Eventide site and it mentions compatabillity with Temple Audio boards. Needing more than seven outputs I bought two Powermax power supplies. 

      On delivery I’ve come to discover that the Powermax simply screws to the underside of the top grid surface of the pedalboard which blocks the holes for the Temple Audio pedal mounting plates and cables. WTF? Who thought that was a good idea? Oh well, live and learn.

      If anyone has an alternate mounting suggestions for the power supplies I’d be grateful. Ideally it would be great if they weren’t flush with the underside of the top surface, to allow access to the holes for plates and cables. Otherwise I’ll just have to ditch the mounting plates and use velcro to mount my pedals.

      Thanks!

      I don’t have a Temple Audio board but couldn’t you use their mounting brackets to hold the PowerMax’s leaving the board surface free to secure your pedals and cable management?

      I appreciate your reply very much. The Duo 34 (which is what I bought) has one support rail installed. At first it looked like it might be possible, but there’s one fatal flaw.The Powermax has controls on the top surface. The mounting screws are on the back. So the top of the power supply would be facing up (out of view) if it were mounted to the support rail. I suppose I could have something made, but it would probably be expensive. I’ve already sunk close to $600 into the board and two power supplies, along with some other parts. 

      I think I’m just going to mount the Powermaxs to the underside of the pedal as designed and forego the pedal mount plates. I’ll just velcro my pedals to the board. Not plan A, but it seems to make the most sense.

        Ah ok. I only looked at the couple of photos on the product page before replying. To me, the voltage switch(es) seem to be a set & forget choice so wouldn’t really be a problem if they were attached to the mounting rail and their top was facing the undersde of the pedalbaoard – unless i’m missing something?

        If you have the option to send the power supplies back you could look at the GigRig Modular power system. While I was looking to replace an original Voodoo Lab Pedal Power two years ago to be able to power my newly acquired Atomic Amplifire (sold my Marshall half stack), 2x H9s, and a variety of pedals I found the GR system to be the best for size/weight/customisation with the minimum amount of power outlets. My setup has two plugs, one for my pedalboard and one for my LAney FRFR speaker.

        Just a thought. Either way I’m sure you’ll come to a solution that works for you

      The nice folks at Temple Audio reached out to Cioks and they have a fix for this issue, Basically it’s a small screw with a male end and a female end. It acts as a spacer between the back of the Powermax and the bottom of the pedalboard. It’s only about a 1/4 inch of space, but apparently that’s enough for the mounting plates. Not sure what the part number is. The Cioks website is pretty confusing. If you have the same issue contact Temple Audio.

      Cioks does have a system called Hex standoffs, but their stateside distribution leaves alot to be desired. Here’s a Reverb link https://reverb.com/item/12964636-cioks-hex-stand-offs Cioks is a great company, but they need a better stateside distribution so more people can know about their product line.
