wow nice set up J evans 8x8...

how come the 20;s run 160 ft but the 1 agw would only run 65? you much have a massive house to run 160 ft to panel...

cheers eh..

Lengths...could be a big house, but bear in mind that wiring runs aren't as the crow flies. There is up, down, across, around, etc. to contend with that can add significantly to the total length of the circuit.

From a technical standpoint, electrically, it is advantageous to run a sub panel if you can/are willing to. But, IMO, unless you have one hell of a system it's not going to be much other than a nice talking point.

i have a little bungalow ez to run cables.. ive put in over 240 meters of new runs.. all 15 amp..14g.. wire..

no different to put in 20 amp circuits and 12 g wire.. which i put in for my gf hot tube, dont think ive ever seen 1 or 2 g wire in a house before

my oven runs on 8 g 230v.. and thats a big cable about 1 inch across.. maybe different system down there in the states

12 gauge wire is plenty big enough for 20 amp circuit.. its yellow up here.. 14 gauge is white.. i have 10 gauge for the dryer
230 v.. ..

merry christmas..

Wire like 1ga or 2ga would be from the service drop to the main panel, or from the main panel to a large sub panel. You're looking at something around 100A capacity at that wire gauge.

Iv got another question.....would running a high quality EQ for my mains benefit me...or is the EQ in my SC-67 good enuff ???? I was thinking a DBX Dual 31 band EQ ???
post #68 of 166
my oven can draw 30 40 amps i think... on 8 g

has its own fuse box too eh..

im not and electricain but its pretty simple stuff too do just turn off the master before you start and np.. ask for tips with the eletrician at the hd...

thats what i do..
post #69 of 166
dont know if you mentioned it to your brother in law but need standard IEC 20 Amp outlet

cheers

160-170 feet was the TOTAL for 5 runs. Might have been more than 170 feet total. I bought a 250 foot roll and still have some left. I would have had to put the sub-panel somewhere hidden but also accessible. The only good place is a utility closet near the bathroom which is further back than my living room. It was easier to just do shorter runs straight to the living room. The one for the lights was less than 20 feet. The other 4 were a around 40 feet each even with some short right angles. The breaker box is really close to the living room, only a small kitchen separates the two but a good place for a sub-panel is on the other side of the house. Probably a good thing I didn't put a sub-panel there since I'm considering blocking off access to that closet from the hallway and turning the bathroom semi-private by busting out the closet and connecting it to a bedroom with a door. I just have to check integrity since the passageway would cross the load-bearing centerline of the house.

I haven't used an EQ in ages. I doubt it is necessary for digital content as an AVR with room correction would take care of most of that. You could still drop one in-line with something, like a turntable or tape deck, and output IT to the receiver -- Analog Source ==> EQ ==> Receiver Analog Input. That is about the only time I would use an EQ.

The room correction software will defeat any EQ, or you would be defeating the room correction, and be adding a whole lot more noise and various potential issues. I'd let the AVR do it.

Eventually most of us outgrow the need for more knobs and toys and just listen and watch. Eventually. Most of us. Not saying either applies to me... smile.gif -- But I would not buy an outboard equalizer, way too many other places to spend money that would provide much bigger bang for buck.

Thanks and the same for you and to all the theists too because they don't know better anyway so I see no point in excluding them...

I didn't mean to have a religious discussion but just to say that the previous shouted religious xmas "greeting" excluded some of us (non-theists) and we deserve good wishes for the New Year too. You are correct in that we all deserve good wishes.

Letting a computer do the work isn't really getting rid of all the knobs...they're just disguised as lines of code. wink.gif
