Friends, I am trying to figure out how many circuits I need to pull to my home theater, and exactly how to break them up. I have been trying to find out how how many amperes a plasma (Samsung PN50A550) and a Denon 3808 pulls. You would think this info would be easy to come by, but for the life of me, I have not been able to find it. I am also planning on having two subs that together will pull almost 8 amps. Thanks.

I've got a dedicated 20amp circuit for my HT room and never had any issues, that covers my projector and all the AV equipment.

I have yet to see my 3808, DVD, VCR and CD changer when all on and working, pull any more than 1.5 amps according to my Belkin PF60 read out.

I think with all my equipment on, and cranking up some tunes loudly, I've seen 4 amps on my Triplite gauge. And that is with my monoblock amps turned on...
