Does anyone have a power strip, or DJ strip plugged into a PC4?

    What does everyone doe, when they run out of wall outlets? I only have a standard wall outlet by my tank, and it limits me to 2 PC4's. My choice is to either plug a PC4 into the DJ strip, or plug the DJ strip into a PC4.

    Does anyone have a setup similar to this?

    I use 3 pc4's I plug in a heavy duty power strip and plug my pc4's into that. I added all the amps of all the equip on my tank and it doesn't exceed the breaker
