Power distribution….the most forgotten about part of sound systems.
Seen far too many people running “8kW” of sound system off one 13a plug socket and loads of multitaps.
Teehee, I run mine off a 13amp plug in the house (configured at 6kW) and it’s not blown yet (maybe 60 hours or so worth of running)… the ammeters jump up to about 16amp very briefly sometimes but I think most fuses are slightly overrated and slow-blow. Time will tell 🙂 6kW in theory should draw ~25amps I’ve not seen that in real life.
