Re: Max Power?

I read so many things on this forum and think - how has my rig lasted so long without catching fire !!!

I have 2 1900 watt power amps that are always running pretty close to redlining of one power board out of one 13amp plug socket...which also has a 150 watt monitor amp, my EQ and a laptop plugged into it...and sometimes a desktop fan to keep the amps cool!!!

I know 1900 watts doesn't mean exactly "1900" watts at all times, but I bet its over the 3KW maximum that Ive just learned is all you should put through a standard 13amp socket!
