Sunfire 300x2

Post by MRHP » Mon Sep 17, 2012 1:20 pm

My new 300x2 when plugged in shows the Joule(sp) meter at around 410 to 420. Is this normal, I thought they were more like 370 to 390 joules.

Inquiring minds wants to know....lol

When you pull off the top, there is a tiny pot on the front board you can adjust the joule meter to it's correct setting.

Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!
