Is it Ok to daisy chain power centers? i only have one high current open on my current Powercenter i have an older monster with 2 high current outlets. Since the frist in the chain will filter is adding the second power center going to limit current at all? Need to plug in my to Def tech BP8080St ' s and have the receiver itself plugged into one of the two sockets on the main power center(panamax).

So will be First powercenter panamax will supply
1) Receiver
2) Monster power center

thens econd Power center wll supply

L and R BP8080ST tower

Anyone see an issue with this? I dont think the monster will limit current at all to its high current outlets but figured id get dummy checked jsut incased.

Lastly i cecked current draw form the high currents and i was hardly using 5 amps at loud listening on a 15amp breaker so shouldnt be a concern.

The Theater:
TV : Panasonic 60VT60
Receiver : Pioneer Elite SC - 55
Power Center : Panamax M7500 Pro
Bluray : Oppo 103
Gaming : Xbox 360
Front L & R : Def Tech BP8080ST
Center : Def Tech CS8080HD
Surround L & R : BPVX

why waste $$ on a 2nd one at all?
Just a multi-dist center is all you need, your basic Home Depot/Lowes, that will save you $$$, plug that into your open plug.

I just replaced my monster so i already have them both. The monster was a cheapy when i bought it like 60$ so im not spending any more money. Just making sure it wouldnt affect the high current sockets sinc e theyre designed specifically fro the job. I didnt know if the additional layer may inhibit that bonus of that filter.
