Default Where can one get an MBOX3 Pro AC Adapter


Could someone tell me how/ where I can get a replacement power adapter for an MBOX3 Pro?

Our company has been trying to get a replacement power adapter for an MBox3 Pro for months. I've called Avid dealer support twice and they say they'll call/email us back the same day but then never do (but I get an email saying they've closed the case #). If someone at Avid wants to look it up, it's case number 02939765.

I hope our customers don't have this much problem getting support.

The Mbox 3 Pro uses an off the shelf Chinese made 9V 2A adapter.. You can use any adapter that fits the specs. Jist make sure the polarity on the plug is ok.

Just a heads up on this.
Been looking for power supply in UK and they come with a barrel to accept a 2.5mm pin, which is wrong. (too tight)
The Mbox 3 pro has a 2.8mm pin on its housing
INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60Hz, 1.5A OUTPUT: 9V, 4000mA, 36VA
Note its also a 4amp (4000ma) output
So i had to get a 2.8mm to replace/solder the 2.5mm.
DC plug protocol of male and female is all over the place with sellers.
Some class the inserted barrel (no pin)as male
Kinda confusing when you consider that an XLR (no pins) is female
