Re: Denon 2809

You are correct. So, should I run an extention cord from another circuit? Until I can get an electrician to take a look. Because if the outlets are in series, then I don't think you can seperate them to a different breaker? I really don't know, I am just guessing.

Re: Denon 2809

What I'm trying to say..., and not very well, is;

If you add together the value of the fuses (amperes or 3.5A)required to run each piece of equipment in your system this will give you an idea of the circuit breaker you need to run the system.

DefTech = 3.5A (amperes) x 2 = 7Amperes
Denon AVR 3313CI = 8A
Total = 15A

What does this number of maximum amps, for just these two pieces of your system listed above, say to you?

What I see is - you have the potential to max your circuit with just these two pieces.

Re: Denon 2809

Checked the back of the spk. 375 watts, and fuse in spk is 3.2A 250V. Plate does not tell me amperage. Divide by what? Add all amperage together from all pieces and divide by the number of pieces? TV no amps listed on the back.

Re: Denon 2809

You mean Denon AVR. Not Onkyo. ( oki doki )

Re: Denon 2809

Greg, kidnapped is correct. I was wondering??? I did call Denon factory, they were out and pointed me towards A4L. So I did. Good recom. from you.

Ooops!! Don't forget to add your TV...

Tom -

As you know your 7006's have a 300watt amp ea. running the bottom end. I am not sure what the, amperes of current draw each will demand but this is written on the back amp plate of the 7006's. For these two amps I would give them as much breathing room as possible. I am talking about AC power. if these are digital or hybrid amps and you had just these two amps on a 15amp circuit by themselves you could probably play them as loud as you want, without issue. But now, if you add the Onkyo, the Onkyo is an 8 amps draw (Max). Your source components are small 2 or3 ampere/current draws each but you use them one at a time. All together you maybe close to maxing a 15 amp circuit (if your playing at Max).

Now comes the interesting part. The circuit breaker for the receptacle your system is on is probably the same as the wall receptacle to the left and to the right of your system. So whatever is plugged into these 3 OR MORE receptacles are added to the ampere demand on the breaker as well. This means you cannot use either one of these to plug the 7006's into if you ever want to max your system (only). The interesting part is if you plug the DefTech's too far from the the remainder of the HT/audio system there could be ground loop issues. What I mean is the power circuit to the 7006's (if on a seperate circuit) should be approximately the same length as the power circuit to the Onkyo and source components.

I have 2 x 150 watt BASH (Digital) Sub amps, a Denon AVR, computer etc etc. I've never seen the circuit draw go over 12.5A but I feel you may be getting close.

You may want to talk with an electrician in your area about your options if you believe you are too close for comfort. I cannot tell you that if you total the amperage demands of all your equipment on one circuit you can divide that total by a number and if that result is less than the 15 or 20 amp breaker in your breaker box your OK. But logic can tell you what proportion of Max you can play or if you need an additional circuit.

So then what is your total system amperage Max draw???

Re: Denon 2809

Before I moved, I think they were plugged into a power strip along with the TV, AVR, DVD Player, Sat box. But now, I have 2 outlets ( 4 places for plug ins ) on the same wall close by. Will it matter if the outlets are on the same breaker and or circuit? Thank you for taking this a step at a time. I really want to get things working correctly. I get my new refurb 3313CI delivered today. I have nothing plugged in or set up yet. Nothing.

Re: Denon 2809

Where do you have your front left and right (BP7006) speakers plugged in for AC power?

Re: Denon 2809

ok. Since I am going to be starting from new. I just ordered the 3313CI. What is going to be the best hookup? I have deftech book shelf speakers that look like SR-8040BP. Hung from the ceiling. I can not find the model number on the speakers. I bought them about 5 years ago. BP 7006 front and BP 2002 center. 14AWG that I ran through my ceiling and under the house. Please don't tell me I need to change it. Would be very hard. I think I had a "Y" ( not a cheap one ) hooked up for the subs somehow. LFE, because I just ran across it while looking at some connectors in a box. From rear spks, about 20ft of AWG 14. Front about 6ft. What is Monster Powerline 300? I will look it up after I send this?
