Just registered. I have some 104/2s and now a pair of 107s. I'm missing the adapter/power supply for the 107 KUBE. I did a quick search and it looks like the topic has come up a few times (maybe not recently) with some ideas on how to potentially rig one. I wondered if anyone has found a suitable replacement...perhaps someone has crossed that bridge since the topic was last discussed?

Looking forward to getting the 107s up and running -- foam kit arrives today. So I'm really in need of a KUBE solution!

THANKS

Is it 107 or 107/2 we are talking about ?

You need an ac/ac adapter with 23V 300mA output.

Thanks for your responses -- it is a 107 KUBE.

Not much info out there on the 107 KUBE. It looks like 107 vs 107/2 makes a difference. So it looks like the 107/2 KUBE was 23VAC but the 107 was 18VAC. The back of the cabinet on the KUBE 107 indicated 18VAC as did the specs written on the only 107 power supply I was able to find a picture of on line.

I had a search going for a 107 KUBE but figuring a replacement would be hard to find I followed the lead of another poster. With the help of a friend we were able to retrofit an 18VAC power supply (RANE RS-1) to work. Curious to hear any thoughts on that.

The KUBE has now been functional for a week's use and appears to be doing its job -- it appears the 18VAC did the trick. The speakers are now refoamed and are sounding great...they are actually fantastic...
