I cant imagine those amps requiring more than 20 amps but I have not seen the specs on them.
Yeah, thats what I am going to do. Just waiting for the drywall to get done everywhere but the closet then will have electricians come to hook up the HVAC and a few wall outlets. Then after I finish painting they can come back and hook up the lights and whatever else is left for them to do.
I need to get some pics of the drywall in the media room. The ceiling is awesome looking. Cant wait to throw some paint on it. Once the paint is put on the ceiling and the bottom parts of the coffering the break up between it and wall paint will make it POP! I just finished cleaning everything (theater, garages, media room.......) so should be able to get some pics tomo while they are mudding.
I still need to run a few wires before hvac and insulation are complete. Only have a pair of ceiling speakers and the runs to the projector left until the columns are up. I'm thinking about running all the surrounds, hdmi, IR, and ethernet wires to boxes in the ceiling (for theater). They will be in the closet above the MA rack so wont really be an eyesore. Then I'll always be able to troubleshoot wires or add/remove them without problems. I'll have the LCR, heights, and subs in the baffle wall so will just run them to boxes in the adjacent wall.
That brings up another kinda problem. I want to cut out a 14.5"x36" door that will allow access to behind the baffle wall. It would be in the closet but I'd hate to do it and then constantly fight a rattling mini door that will only be used once (hopefully).
