From the MI Audio website

The power supply of the pedals have been designed to allow you to power the unit from a DC source up to 25V, providing you with massive headroom and a huge output signal There is a 2.1mm barrel connection for external power connection
Has anyone ran one of a Crunch Box higher voltage? Does it make as much of a difference as the OCD?

I run mine at 18V, and I don't see much of a difference. Not like the OCD, which I greatly prefer at 18V.

I had no idea you could do this on MI Audio boxes. (All of them)?

You know as soon as I get home the 18V adapter and Crunchbox are coming out!

I asked Mike at MI Audio about it a few months back via email, he said you can run it at higher voltage but he prefers the sound of the pedal at 9v. Most designers seem to say it's better at higher voltage, so I figured if he says 9v I'd just leave it there.

I'm kinda glad to hear that.
I've tried running my crunchbox at 12V and 18V, and didn't like the subtle change in tone and feel...
