I use 1000w Airlink step downs for each pair of my cabs. I think the Astro is only rated at 140 or 160W so 300 should be fine. It has the rating on a sticker on the rear of the cab, so check it to be sure.
What model number please? Is it better to have 1 step down converter for 2 cabs or 1 each?

Re: PSU options for NAC w/ CPS2, FPGA and PC

Thank you.
If the stock PSU is powering the mister and CPS2, can it power both simultaneously or will i need to manually switch between mister and CPS2 by unplugging / plugging?

Hello. Recently joined the forum after hearing that candy cabs often coke up for sale. I’m a super street fighter II player in Ireland and we want to get some cabs for the community.
