( Vinnie might be able to change its output/voltage to accommodate future components/upgrades
Jim, I'm curious why you'd go with this option rather than batteries? I seem to be reading more and more how batteries are at least as good as a good PS, plus they bring the added advantage of negating any need for power conditioning/filtering.I'm not trying to be critical of your purchase, just trying to figure this whole power thing out. Stupid me used to think that whatever power supply the manufacturer supplied was all that I'd ever need.
In my personal experience the batteries won't limit dynamics at all unless they are too small. In fact I think you'll get more dynamics from a good sized batter power supply than with just about any other power supplies.

If you ever accidentally short an SLA battery with a wire (don't do this! ), the wire melts and becomes the fuse. There is THAT much current - and having that kind of high current on demand is essential for dynamics.Vinnie
Your Black module may do well to limit the inrush current. In fact, a lot of switch mode supplies already do this. It's when you get to the really bug supplies that can deliver a lot of current before limiting that the problem arises. Batteries will pop the fuses, for sure.That is why the new amps will have a soft start circuit. I slows the charge of the big caps, then gets out of the way. The Red Wine battery packs also have this built in, so you would use the switch on the battery pack instead of the switch on the amp.If you can find out more about the current limiting function of the Black module, we might be able to better judge. Does it reset itself?
