Yeah, this room is a very odd place.

The system is a half breed of mobile and permanent install - it doesn't move around TOO often, but it does move around occasionally.  

I think at this stage it might be best to just get the 4 (or 5) 20 A drops installed at the mix position (or perhaps a distro panel with 4 20A circuits in it).  That way I won't have to worry about remote powering, and the room isn't large enough for the cable lengths to really become an issue.

Thanks for the advice and suggestions.

Then look at the Furman rack-mount distros, and look at Motion Labs. IIRC Furman has a 6x20A with sequencing and 5x20A without. Motion has all kinds of stuff. With a rack mount distro with sequencing you still might be coming up on a grand ...

Peace,

I'm still trying to decide what to recommend here.

What I have:
Spirit LX-7 mixer
random rack equipment (Nothing high powered)
2x QSC MX-1500a
1x QSC PLX1602
1x Peavey 800ish watt deal
2 other small (500-1000 watt) amps running monitors (on stage)

1 QSC MX-1500 drives a pair of front speakers, the other drives a pair of speakers in the middle of the room, and the 800ish watt peavey drives a pair of speakers in the rear.

The PLX1602 drives a JBL MP255 subwoofer which is in the front of the room.

So....how much power do i need?  I've tried to estimate but I'm not sure if i'm in the right range or not.  Do i need 2x 20A? 1 x 1.21 jiggawatts? (j/k)

The other question is should i move one QSC amp and the PLX1602 to the front of the room and just turn them on by hand? If so should I get a 20A circuit there? 2 20A circuits? Should I just consult an electrical contractor and ask? Smile

thanks for advice,
