I'm a fan of the Furman PM and PL series, we use them in our road racks. Never know what you get for power in a convention or arts centre.

At home, it's a 6 way power tap straight into the wall. I takes me chances, har!

Maybe I was drunk.


At this point, the only assumption I make about you happens when you're making sense. It's then that I assume you're not drunk.

The funniest part about that post is... I hardly drink anymore. Hard to get your 4L of caffeinated beverage into you in a day when you water it down with alcohol!

I can't imagine how many trips to the bathroom you take in one day...

Ok, please bear with me. I am NOT an electrician, but I do all my own wiring, and have installed furnaces and 240v central A/C's (part time) for the past 21years.

I beleive the power cord and internal wiring of most electrical appliances is rated to handle 15A and thats it. In fact most of them will never draw anywhere near that current. The circuit breaker in your home is designed to be the weakest link in the chain. If you plug that appliance into a 20A circuit, then the wiring in the appliance is now the weakest link. What happens if said appliance develops a dead short? It is relying on your circuit breaker to trip. If it doesn't trip, then the heat will continue build inside the appliance until something weaker BURNS OUT. Read **POTENTIAL FIRE**.

You could run heavier wire if it makes you feel better, but I certainly wouldn't put a bigger breaker in.

Sidenote - Most electronic devices have their own built-in fuses, so my "Fire Scare" may not apply. I still wouldn't install the bigger breaker though.

Bren,

No it wasn't me. You must have been thinking of someone else.

That's ok..I know it's the first time you have ever been wrong in your life. LOL

That first time is always a heart breaking feeling knowing that your perfect record has been broken

Avoiding the potential for overheat and being capable of running the system without worry's of finding the weakest link are my goal here. If one 15 amp circuit, used solely for the HT system will do it, combined with a power bar that has excellent protection, I'll be one happy camper.

The reason I ask this wiring question, is that I am working on my drawings for the electrical permit I require to complete the wiring in the basement.

Thanks for the input thus far,
Troy
