Need help from LFAC owners who are using ACOPIAN "Gold Box" power supplies

Need help from LFAC owners who are using ACOPIAN "Gold Box" power supplies

I finally made the move of replacing my stock Trident Series 80 power supply with Acopian Gold Boxes. These will only be used for the audio rails; I have a seperate stock Trident supply for the 5 volts that works just fine (and connects to the console via a seperate cable). Also, I do not use phantom power on the desk -- so that is not an issue either.

So I've got two 18v, 10a racked units on the way (model 18PT10) and will have them next week. Acopian told me these are the Gold Boxes installed in a frame.

What I'd like to know are 2 things:

1) how did you wire the 2 units at the back of the Acopians (and to the console) for the + and - audio rails ?

2) did you do the "inrush current" mod ? And if so, how ?

I'm going to send these to a tech who is going to take care of this stuff for me, but I just wanted to verify everything 110% before proceeding -- and DEFINETLY before hooking these things up to my console and blowing something up!

So if you've already been thru this, PLEASE share some insights with me !
