Long run power chord to Power Plant

Hi -

For various reasons the only real estate I have for my gear is 20ft from the dedicated circuit, including running the cord around corners.

Do you guys think it would be a problem to power a Power Plant using a 20ft power cord?


Don’t know but a good quality 20 ft power cable is likely to be pretty expensive.

Thanks for the response @RonP - unfortunately I have no choice on this one, and no huge budget either - max $500.

Any chance you can run another dedicated line, probably cheaper than a quality 20ft extension. I know when they installed mine they only charged about 600, but not sure if by your user name you are in nyc and thus it might be tough putting in a new line

Yeah, New York City here, living in a pre-war condo with walls as impenetrable as Fort Knox. :smile:

Totally understand, it’s pretty awesome managed to get the one dedicated line! Maybe that Cullen cable guy would be able to sort you some heavy gage extension cord out. I hear he makes good stuff for reasonable money

Thanks @Veneet, I’ll give him a call next week then. And yes, the dedicated line is purely by lucky chance that nothing else in my apartment uses it.

Patrick at Cullen will build this cable for $115 for 8 feet and then $10 per foot over that so half your budget.

Quality cable that will do what you need.

Thanks @dawkinsj.

These are great cables for the money and he custom builds all of them.


No problem at all, I use a 11 meter (36 feets) long power cord to my P15 + another 2 meter from each socket from my P15 to my “stereo-things”.

Good to know - what 11m power cord are you using? Thanks.

think about it, how long are the cables in the walls and along the street to closest power transformer? what ever you plug into the socket likely will be better.
