### Does adding more electrical outlets require to increase breaker amps/condiut?

Yes maybe, depending on what you are doing.

1) Electric Code generally says Maximum 12 boxes per electric circuit controlled by 1 circuit breaker. If you have more boxes, then your house can fail inspection IF inspector finds problem. But it is a minor problem if wire size, breaker size, and amp loads are safely matched.

2) Reason for the code: so there is not power loss to last box when many things are drawing power from same circuit, which can cause overheating of circuit and trip breaker, and cause heat damage to some electronic devices and motors.

Which is why you are asking the question.

3) In practical terms, if you are adding outlets to run another light bulb, then you will probably not notice any problem.
However if you are adding plugs so you can run shop tools, or blower motor, or compressor etc, then that can be a problem.

For example if wire is too long, there will be power loss to motor which will cause motor overheating and shorten life of equipment.

4) Solution.
Calculate total amps and watts expected on that circuit.
Add up watts of everything running at same time.
Volts x amps = watts
120 volt microwave uses 1500 watts, how many amps?
Amps = watts divided by volts, so 1500 watts divided by 120 volts = 12.5 amps.
Make sure you have correct wire and circuit breaker for expected amps. Oversizing wire and breaker are good idea.

### 1 question can Cutler Hammer breakers have the amperage feed through the breakers. To the breaker box and from the box grid to the load. Does it matter which way the amperage is fed through the breaker?...

There seem to be several questions mingled in with those 2 questions.

1) Amps can go either way

2) Breakers trip when heat exceeds certain level. Heat is caused by amps.

3) You want to add a subpanel in garage.
I do not know the code in your area for installing a subpanel.
Your plan will work by connecting 6 gauge wire to main breaker, and new 60 amp breaker will protect wires between main box and subpanel.
Remember, wires going into main breaker cannot be turned off without pulling meter.
Some areas require license to pull meter.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-circuit-breaker.html

4) To work around license and meter-pull, simply replace a 240V breaker in main panel with your new 60 amp breaker.
Then move breakers around to match new set-up.
New subpanel can accommodate two new 240V breakers and one new 120 Breaker
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-a-subpanel.html

5) 6 gauge wire is correct for 60 amp breaker.

6) I'm not sure what you mean by the box rails?

7) Do you need more amperage on main service?
This means adding a larger service panel with 150 Watt or 200 Watt main breaker.

8) How to figure total amp draw at your house.
Add up total watts being used.
For example you have 1/2 Hp motor
754 watts per Hp
1/2 Hp = 377Watts
Volts x Amps = Watts
Amps = Watts divided by Volts.
377 Watts divided by 240Volts = 1.57 amps (plus a bit more amperage when motor starts)
40 watt light bulb divided by 120Volts = .33 amps
Double oven has label located inside door that shows upper and lower wattage.
Dishwasher, dryer, big screen TV, satellite receiver all have labels that show wattage.
Water heater has label that shows wattage of each element.

### My subwoofer shuts off when I turn it up too loud. How do I fix it?

Don't turn it up so loud.
Or get a bigger subwoofer.

It's got a junk 6.5 inch speaker and the amp barely does 50 clean watts.
Claims 167 Watts at 10% distortion - impossible when it is drawing 160.
TOTAL BS.
Drive it too hard and protection circuit will cut in and shut it down.

### I have a trailer house that has a 100 amp breaker box in it. I has gas for heat, water heater and stove. I am changing them to electric. Will I need to change the panel put to a 200 amp.

Its probably not a bad idea. Thats alot for a 100A panel to handle, a range needs a 50A, a water heater needs 30A, and the heat will need a 50A or a 60A breaker... Plus whatever else is in the house will be a bit more than the 100A service can handle. But if you don't have the money it will do for a while because for the most part they won't all be pulling at the same time. Word to the wise get at least a 30 space panel when you upgrade, I always install a 40 space panel because for the cost difference its well worth it for future needs because you'll fill it up quicker than you think and you'll have space for anything else you may want to add later on. Hope I helped

### What is the total WATT output on the Sony MHC-G101 mini hi-fi 3 CD changer, dual cassette home component system? I misplaced the owner's manual, and I want to know how much power it has. // Tks

According to page 24 of the manual, it delivers 11 Watts RMS (route mean squared) per channel into 8 ohm speakers.

Elsewhere in the manual, you'll see references to "15 watts per channel" and as much as "25 watts per channel". The 15 watt value is valid when putting up with some 10% THD (total harmonic distortion), this value is 11 times higher than the .9% THD value given for 11 watts per channel. You tolerate .9% THD now, but you wouldn't want to listen to anything with 10% THD. The 25 watts per channel is what they call "Music Power". Watts is an electrical term, "music power" is not. You could use it to compare other devices that only offer "music power" values, but the best indication of how it will perform is based on watts in RMS, into an 8 Ohm load (most speakers are 8 ohms). The lowest THD values are best.

From the manual:

AUDIO POWER SPECIFICATIONS
POWER OUTPUT AND TOTAL HARMONIC
DISTORTION:
With 8 ohm loads, both channels driven, from
70 - 20,000 Hz; rated 11 watts per channel
minimum RMS power, with no more than
0.9% total harmonic distortion from 250
milliwatts to rated output.

I hope this helped!

### How many total watts does this system have

Well... It consumes 240 watts of electrical power total so take the audio power specifications with a huge grain of salt, as no audio device puts out in audio power anywhere near what it consumes in electrical power. Heat produced is power consumed, too and nothing is 100% efficient.

In the specs below the only information useful for comparison is in the line I highlighted with >>> <<<<'s as it conforms the closest to the industry standard practice of using:

"X watts into 8 ohms (standard load) from 20 - 20000 hz plus or minus Y db at no more than .0Z% distortion"

The better amps specify vanishingly low distortion specs (0.0x% vs 0.x%) at the cost of being able to claim higher wattage. But they guarantee cleaner sound at the claimed levels.

JVC is being tricky with their choice of a 40 hz lower limit. THAT is the power hungry end of the spectrum. 20 hz is normally the lower limit stated.

"Output Power .............At Stereo operation
Front channels .............55 watts per channel, min. RMS, driven into 4 ohms at 1 kHz, with no more than 0.9 % total harmonic distortion. (IEC268-3/DIN) 30 watts per channel, min. RMS, driven into 8 ohms at 1 kHz, with no more than 0.9 % total harmonic distortion. (IEC268-3/DIN)

>>>>> 30 watts per channel, min. RMS, driven into 8 ohms, 40 Hz to 20 kHz, with no more than 0.8 % total harmonic distortion. <<<<<

At Surround operation
Front channels .............50 watts per channel, min. RMS, driven into 8 ohms at 1 kHz, with no more than 0.8 % total harmonic distortion.

Center channel .............50 watts, min. RMS, driven into 8 ohms at 1 kHz, with no more than 0.8 % total harmonic distortion.

Rear channel .................50 watts, min. RMS, driven into 8 ohms at 1kHz, with no more than 0.8 % total harmonic distortion."

### Got jl300/2 amp confused which subwoofer sounds good

Hello drsubhakar26,

JL W6's will perform well with from 150-600 watts RMS. W7's with from 150-500 watts. Less expensive Alpine Type R's work OK with from 200-500 watts RMS. Either of the brands will sound good. None of them will perform to their full potential with 300 watts RMS. Powering any sub with a 2-channel amp is a compromise. A monoblock is more efficient.

Hope this helps.

### Will a sony xm-1652z 1000w amp run 2 dvc 4 ohm 800 watt rms subs?and whats yhe best wiring option if so?thx

IT WILL POWER THE SUBS WITH NO PROBLEM. I WILL NEED TO KNOW WHAT THAT MAX WATT THE SPEAKERS CAN HANDLE BEFORE GIVING PROPER ADVISE. RMS IS RECOMMENDED MINIMUM SETTINGS.
