Hope I'm asking this right..
Electrician put up one run of 12-3 Romex today to power the front speakers (2 250W DefTech BP2006TLs, 1 150W DefTech CLR2300 Channel) AND my HSU VTF-3 MK3 (450W) front Subwoofer. This run goes back to one (I believe) 20 AMP circuit on the panel. (Although it could actually go to two, as he explained the single cable can handle 2 circuits..more on this below).
I questioned one run for two separate duplex outlets, with this much power on it, as I originally told him I wanted (2) 20 AMP circuits powering the front of the room - one for the DefTechs, 1 for the VTF-3.
The way he explained it, the 12-3 (apparently) carries 2 circuits in a single cable. He also said he would run the single 12-3 into one gang box, and jumper it to the second, so I'd have two separate outlets as I'd wanted. Is this true and good Theater electrical design? (I haven't heard of such a thing, and it sounded a bit fishy to me). He also said each one can support up to 1850 watts (I think), so I should have more than ample capacity.
Is he being straight up here, or looking to shortcut?
We're about ready to drywall next week, so if I need new runs, I need to get em up there now vs later.
Thanks (from an Electrical noob).
