Hello All ! I am close to doing some wiring in my new basement HT, and want to know how most people go about it. I mean, would you typically have one circuit, 20 amp, dedicated for all of the equipment? My equipment would be, one 36" tube TV (later to be a rear projection widescreen), one AVR, probably a Denon when I save some dollars and replace my Yamaha DSP, one Toshiba DVD player, and the 100 watt powered sub. I also have my stereo on the same rack, but would not have it running while my movies are running. As my system expands, I suspect I'll be adding more, such as satellite equipment, etc. I will be doing the wiring myself, I feel OK about this, and have already passed an inspection for another room. Do most people use a fully dedicated 20 amp circuit, and it is proper to plug all the HT equipment into one line? And I assume that 20 amps needs 12/2 gauge wire? Separate from this will be the ceiling and sconce lighting, eventually controlled by x-10 scene-capable dimmers. The wet bar will have its own circuits for neon signs, etc. I also plan to install a whole-house surge protector on my main panel so that my x-10 components, and other items don't get fried. So, have I left out anything obvious? I'm pretty lucky because I have 14x23 feet to work with, in my basement, but it takes a lot to properly fill that room, including electrical stuff. Thanks for any input, especially about the dedicated circuit to run my electronics. Cheers, Tom Kay, Ottawa.
