This amp will run stable on 100-240V so 110V is fine. Many people plug these amps to a normal outlet but these amps need allot of current and might trip your beaker so see if it works for you.

If you had three European cables you could build the three cables for your different available AC supplies.
You can find these AC plugs in most electrical or hardware stores.
As Avi commented, the risk is great to trip breakers and having potential production snafus with a powerful amplifier. Underpowering an amp could jeopardize the health of the amp.
For a studio application, this risk is relatively low, even using 15A circuits because you have control over the amp.
For the lowest risk, I would use a 30A AC plug. NOTE : This plug doesn't fit all wall socket else than a 30A AC supply; Usually found with distros, racks, etc.
For medium risk, use the 20A AC plug; A lot of venues have the 15A/20A combo wall socket. Though, you may not have the full power to supply the speakers at full blast.
For the highest risk but the most available AC supply, use the 15A plug. This should be good for low level sound venues. Beware of underpowering the system!

STX835 : (Cont.Prog.Peak) 1600 W / 3200 W / 6400 W @ 4 ohms
Can I test and use the 9000 for one speaker 'in the studio'? Yes, with some holding back on the levels! And, mostly for your ears!
Would I risk hurting the speaker? No, I don't think so; The amp is 'compatible' with the speaker cab, in Bridge mode.
Though, you could use the limiter in the DSP section. Unfortunately, I don't know how to configure 'correctly' the limiter!
Perhaps Avi can help us with this!

When you use the amps limiter you must keep in your head you're only protecting the biggest driver in the box, you can easily fry the HF driver even with the limiter engaged so you still need to keep your ears open to distortion, but some protection is better then no protection.
You have three types of limiters in the ITHD, RMS, PEAK and THERMAL. They are very configurable so I would suggest you work with AUTO MODE and not in ADVANCED mode. After looking at the spec sheet of your speakers I find that the data you need to configure the limiters is missing or not stated clearly, so we will do our best. you have 1600W continuos at 4 ohm, that amounts to 80V in the RMS limiter and 71V for the THEMAL limiter, leave the thermal response time at 10 seconds and you should be fine.
You can alternatively email the JBL support for the actual specs, you should ask for the 100h wattage specs, 2h wattage specs and minimum impedance of the speakers.
If you only want to protect the drivers then we did good, but if you also want smooth SPL over an entire show, then we need to further limit the RMS and THERMAL limiters so we don't go into power compression so let me know.
The manual for the ITHD limiters is here:
