I'm sound tech'ing for a gig Sunday after next at a local school, my largest yet - around 300 people. I was talking to the lighing tech for the night who said he was still in the dark as to how much he could run off of their system. With a 16 amp large plug it's 3.8kw, with a 13 amp standard plug socket (@220volts) it's 2.88kw. It only occured to me then that a few people on TB have rigs over 2.8kw. How do they run their rigs? Crest and Peavey I know both do poweramps over 3kw in a 2U space with a single plug, how does this work? The 2.88kw is derived from 13amps * 220volts, so therefore in the USA, were power is 110(?), surely the largest rig you can run off of a wall socket is only 1.44kw? Can anyone elighten me on this subject?
