I have just ordered a new 6-ch Amp from Alan for the HT.
The manufacturer recommends a dedicated 20-30 amp circuit. But, some one mentioned to me to install a dual 20 amp circuit which will provide more power for the amp. What is a dual 20-30 amp circut and will I benefit from this? Any help on this will be much appreciated. The amp will be here next week so, I would like to get the wiring taken care of before the amp arrives.
