As some of you are aware, I bought and moved into a house back in October. It wasn't new so I didn't have the chance to have some big circuits ran for some dedicated audio outlets. Luckily, I one spot left in my panel, I'm thinking of adding at least a single pole 40A breaker to feed a couple of 20A outlets and creating a small subpanel somewhere to split the 40A into (2)20A.
I know what it will take to get the wires ran and panel installed, however, I was hoping for some suggestions on materials that might be more audio friendly. I was also gonna oversize at least the main wire to maybe a 60A size in case I decide to add a 20A plug in my bedroom for a future bedroom rig.
For outlets, I know I want at the least, the commercial/shop grade that are in the $4-5 apiece range. Any better suggestions or specific brands?
I'm thinking Milbanks for my little subpanel and breakers. I know their meterbases are very high quality. Anybody disagree?
For the biggie: Wire? I know (from work) that 100' of #6 ain't gonna be cheap, but I'm not looking for the type of wires used in some of those high-end power cords either. I'm all ears on this one.
BTW, I put in the 2-channel to get more action since this is for my 2-channel rig. :D
