I 2nd Winkelmann
I ran 2 x 20Amp circuits into the equip room (both on same phase). I'm only using one at the moment. I then ran 20A romex from the equip closet to the PJ and sub positions.
I did this as I wanted power to PJ and Sub recepticles to run via a Power Conditioner / UPS to prolong lifetime of the PJ bulb. Some of the options on using inlets that were suggested were expensive so I've did the following:
APC J10--> 20A cord --> junction box with twist connections --> 20A Romex --> Recepticle --> PJ (or Sub)
In the Junction box I used double gang blank plate and drilled two holes. I found some cable glands (similar to this
) at Home Depot that attached to the plate. I got a couple heavy duty power cords and cut the socket end of and passed thru the cable glands, secured and then used wire nuts to attach to the romex.
Here is a pic.
Whether you plan on using any type of conditioner/UPS now or in the future and help avoid ground loops make sure the PJ & Sub wiring routes via the equipment location.
Some see Conditioners/UPS as waste of money, maybe they are but helps me sleep a little better during stormy waether
Just my 2c
