Paramour II power consumption
« on: January 15, 2010, 05:47:24 AM »
I may have missed it, but haven't found in the Paramour II manual any figure for the power consumption (of each monoblock).  Can anyone tell me what it is?  Thanks.

They are fused at 1A, but don't draw that much current when running.  So probably about 55W apiece.

Are you worried about them being green or what?

I was worried about using them from the 150W outlets of a Power Wedge Ultra power conditioner.  No need to worry, apparently.  Good to know, thanks, G.

Good information.  I have mine on a Power Wedge 116.  I'm using the amp outlets because all my source outlets are used up.  But I wouldn't hesitate to feed them on the lower current outlets. 

At the worst the startup current might blow the fuse, but I doubt it.  If I were you, I would try them on the better filtered/isolated outlets and see.  Just don't turn both on at the same time.
