So, I have this huge Krell FPB 400cx power amp, driving my Legacy Audio Signature II speakers, which are 92dB efficient 4 ohm speakers. The Krell is rated for 400/800/1600 watts into 8/4/2 ohms. Here are the power consumption specs:
Stand by 75 watts
Idle 350 watts
Max. 3000 watts
Here is a link to the manual, which has the complete specs:
I would also be connecting my Denon AVR, Oppo UHD Blu-ray player, PS Audio Stellar Gain Pre-amp/DAC, cable DVR box, turntable, and possibly TV to the power regenerator. I don’t really listen to music very loud, but for movies I will crank it up a bit.
At this point, the Krell is connected to a standard 15 amp line with upgraded outlet. Now, Krell recommends a 20 amp line for this amp, but it seems to be working decently, although when there is a large bass impact, the lights in the room will dim. The lights also dim briefly every time I turn on the Krell. Actually, the lights will even dim when I turn on the Denon AVR.
Any recommendations much appreciated.
