So I just ordered an Onkyo 805 receiver, which I hear uses 9.5 amps, only at max volume, but still, add to that my HSU VTF 3.3 which uses 3.5 amps, CRT TV at 1.5 amps, plus a computer with a 480 watt power supply and dual monitors, and a mini fridge (not sure how many amps that is). To top it off my brothers room is on the same 15 amp circuit! He does not have much, just a small TV and computer. Right now everything is OK, and hopefully will remain that way for now, esp when my brother is back at college and not home for break, then I don't have to worry about his stuff.
But during the summer, we both have AC's! Usually the breaker does not trip, but once and a while it will, with the 805 and new sub (used to have an STF-2) there is no way the breaker is going to stay on. What I normally do as ghetto as this is, is run the AC on an extension cord and plug it into the bathroom, which is on its own 15 amp circuit.
I really want to get a 20 amp or even just another 15 amp circuit for my AV gear so I don't have to worry about this crap tripping, I almost went with the 705 instead of the 805 because I am so worried about it, but I got too good of a deal on the 805 to pass up.
So does anyone have a rough idea of how much this will run to install? I really just need the wire run, I can wire up the outlet. I would think maybe a few hours of work and a few hundred, but I have no idea, it could cost much more. Also I only have a 100 amp main if that makes a difference.
