    Hi,

    I feel like an idiot for the amount of time I have spent trying to get this clear, but I wanted to be sure I don't mess up any of my pedals.

    I have just bought a MJM Sixties Vibe which needs 18v and is 150ma.

    I have also just bought a CIOKS DC 8.

    Which two outlets do I plug the "stack flex type 1" into?

    I read that it needs to be into two isolated outlets...does that mean either jacks 5+6 or jacks 7+8 would be ok?

    No the channels are not isolated, use channels 1,2,3, or 4. Can't remember if 5 and 6 are isolated or not, (on my i phone, too lazy to look it up), but I know that 7 and 8 are NOT isolated from each other, therefore they cannot be used to boost to 18v.

    If it's under 100mA, you can use two of the first four (if you're using 3/4, make sure they're set to 9vDC). If it's above 100mA, you'll need the higher current ports, so 5 and 7 together using the Stack Flex will give you 18vDC, 300mA.

    As Andreas said. You will need taps 5 & 7 with the stack flex cable to achieve 18V with the appropriate amount of mA to power the Sixties Vibe.
