Has anyone ever made one or is it even feasible? Just curious ...

Tehre is a guy who makes a system for the Beyer and Sonosax.... he sells it for $150 or so.  If he can do it, Im sure someone can do it for a much cheaper price!

Are you going to run it off of 12 volts???  If so, it is quite easy.  I wouldn't pay 150 bucks for it ever!!!  PM me, and I can walk you through the whole process.  It is easy.  Or, I can just make some cables for you if you tell me the dc plug size on that sucker!

i made a 24v SLA power supply for my Beyer MV-100.  i'm assuming the Sonosax has the same power requirement.

parts can be found at various online stores. i bought mine from www.partsexpress.com

DC Plug: 2.1mm X 5.5mm X 11.2mm w/6ft cord.  part #090-489  $1.10
2 - 12V 7.5AH SLA  $25/each

with some flexible wires, terminators, heat shrink and fuse/fuse holder, i made one quite easily.  just put the 2 SLA in series to give you 24V and power your Beyer for months!!!
