So if you had the choice...

Post by HRDROKN » Sat May 21, 2011 1:39 am

So we moved again.... this is a good thing!

I have a dedicated 220V circuit available that I would split into 110V to run my gear. So if the choice was between a 20' power cable with 20 amp service from source, a 20' balanced interconnect from crossover to amps and short <6' speaker cable as one option or less than 5' interconnect and power with 20' of speaker cable as another... which would be better?

Run the 110v as far as you can, 2x 20-30amp services

I would say the same, but remember the shorter the speaker cables are the better.

I ended up running 20x20 amp circuits to my Cherry 260's but still needed 20ft speaker cable.
