  • Question for owners of the Line 6 M9

    What is the output rating (in mA) of the power supply for your M9?

    Mine's at the studio so I don't know. Mine is powered by a One Spot, though. No other pedals sharing the power- don't need anything else.

        That should work fine. Line 6's polarity is reverse of everyone else's, so you might need a cable to reverse it.

          But that still doesn’t tell us how much current the M9 draws at 9 volts. I suspect it will be more than 500 mA.

            Try a current doubler on the two 500ma outputs.
            Oh no.....


            Oh Yeah!

              i believe the power supply is the px2, which is 2000mA

                Holy freakin’ Jim-Bob! That’s not just a lot of current; that’s just about all of it.

                  That's only 2 amps. Hardly all of it.

                    It’s a lot when you’re a power supply with three “high-current” outputs of 500 mA each.

                      The M9 doesn't actually use all that power. The power supply is rated that high, but the M9 actually uses much less.

                        I know how much 2 amps is.
                        I was razzing you.

                          I think that’s the trouble. There are differing reports of how much it draws. I’d be leery of overdrawing the joyo power supply.

                          This thing would answer your question.

                            According to a post on TGP: At 9V DC Line6 M9 draws approx. 600mA, when powered with 12V DC it draws 480mA and at 15V DC the current is 430mA

                              I owned an M9 for a couple years, up to Year 2020. I also own a Truetone mA Meter. I used the mA Meter to measure the power draw of the M9. Power draw of the M9 was 575 milliamps.

                              While the power adaptor that comes stock with the Line 6 M9 is an AC output type, I found a couple sources indicating that the M9 can be powered by a more typical, DC output power adaptor. The first is a thread on the Line 6 Community Support Forum where someone says this is possible because the M9 has a AC to DC rectifier in line right after the power input jack. Here's the link to that thread: https://line6.com/support/topic/2659...ents-ac-vs-dc/

                              The 2nd source indicating this is the owner's manual for my TrueTone CS12 isolated power supply unit. See attached pic of Pages 3 and 4. Page 4 has a note saying that the M9 can be powered by CS12 power taps #10 and #11. The diagram of those Power Taps on the prior page labels those power taps as DC type.

                              I did in fact successfully power my M9 via DC power tap on the CS12 for awhile. I decided to sell the M9 last year.
