[LAU] Some phantoms are stronger than other phantoms.

I was noticing the Behringer DEQ2496 spectrum analyzer / EQ has a XLR 
input for a mic with flat EQ to be connected for room analysis, and the 
mic input does have phantom power supplied.

However, it says +15-volt phantom power.  Fifteen volts?  Isn't phantom 
power normally 48 volts?  I was hoping to use an Earthworks TC30K mic 
with it, since I have two of them, and they are basically flat out to 
beyond the human audio range, but they say they require 48-volts at 
10mA.  Where do you get 15-volt phantom power?
