switching mains voltage Dbx 165a over easy
 
Just recently acquired two Dbx 165a's. Both have switchable mains voltage and the person I purchased them off switched the voltage over to 240v before shipping. I'm just triple checking that when I switch these on it won't fry. Inside there is a pretty easy to follow instruction list for soldering the correct terminals. To me it looks correctly done. Need to hear from a person on the internet before I go ahead switching it on. Thanks in advance.

New to forums.. apologies if it has already been asked. Please recommend the correct location for this thread if I have done it wrong I found similar-ish threads but I could not confirm my question.

Here I mount a 120/230 voltage selection switch so both modes are available. Switchcraft makes it. Also, remount the power transformer with bolts and screws, the pop rivets always come loose.

I switch would definitely be handy. I may look into one. Are you able to view the photos I have posted? I want to make sure it is wired correctly before testing the units. Thanks for the reply.

It's a standard series/parallel circuit. Test with a meter.
