    Howdy,
    In these days of multiple subs and huge poweramps, I was wondering if anyone had done any measurements on how much power their system was consuming overall? What would the cost of running your system flat out for an entire movie? Anyone get the cold shoulder from the missus? [​IMG]
    Cheers,

    I just posted these numbers in another thread. Like some else said. I'll never actually draw this many watts, but I guess the potential is there to draw some serious power. I guess the old electrical bill would be a lot less if I got rid of my HT gear. I'm not sure how much it cost to run everything for a movie though.
