    Hi all,

    I have hopefully got my new PB12-Ultra coming in the early part of May (fingers crossed). I realise the power cable supplied comes with the two prong eartless plug on it. I have a fairly good lead at work from a spare TFT screen which has a 5A fuse in it. My question is, is this lead suitable for the Sub? It has the standard kettle end that fits the sub ok from pictures i have seen of the amp. I was mainly concerned about the fuse. Is 5A correct?

    Thanks in advance for the help

    Cheers :thumbsup: :confused: :)

    My svs subs have 5amp fuses. You can use the lead you indicate, on one of mine I just cut the US plug off and put a 5amp fused UK plug on instead.

    I used a computer lead on mine, the thing. Your lead should be just fine.

    I built myself one based on the sids posh power cord specs. Seemed to make a small difference over a standard cable to my ears.
