DPA 406x Powering circuits


Recommended Posts

As promised:


Two circuits: the first for unbalanced 9v operation, the second (which is what's inside the DPA 6001 adapter) for balanced 48v Phantom operation.


Best to check with a mic you don't mind losing if you're not sure about construction. Don't blame me if it all goes wrong!

Thanks to finding these schematics from Soundmanjon, I'm going to build a couple of circuits to power my ex-theatre DPA 4061s.. (both cut at the wire..)

A small question before I do so: My recorder can give 12V Tpower. Will adjusting the circuit above for T-Power and making an adapter for T-power instead, save me recorder battery? If T and phantom both have same current draw, I'd guess that would be correct.. ?

Few years late but please on the 9 volt battery schematics The 10uF capacitor has no polarity shown.

Is it electrolytic and polarity is not showing or non polarized polypropylene ?

If anyone built this power supply please could you comment on my question.
