What kind of device are you powering and what was its original power
source?

The device I'm wanting to power is a Rocktron Chameleon Pre-amp. It says
9v AC 2.5 Amp
on the back. But the manual says 2.0amp.

Do you think I should look for something larger? Maybe 3A?

Let's see...

It's a preamplifier, so its power consumption is not going to vary much.

Can you supply it with power and see how much current it actually draws,
using an AC ammeter? I have no idea whether to believe the manual or the
panel markings.

Thanks for the advice on the fuse.

Glad to be of service!
