Should Subwoofer Be Plugged Into Same Circuit?

I am running electrical lines for my theater myself. Should I make the outlet for the sub on the same circuit as the rest of the AV equipment, or put it on a separate circuit?

i could have sworn I read something that said it needs to be on the same circuit to help prevent ground loops.
I remember you had a thread asking about power conditioners. Most conditioners limit current and an amp draws the highest current of all your components. That's why typically sources are plugged into the PC and amp is plugged into the wall. With a 20A duplex receptacle, conditioner into one outlet, amp into the other.

Depending on the power of your amp, you may be able to plug everything into the Brickwall. It's supposed to be non-current limiting.

To add to the foregoing comments, I suggest that you read pages 31 through 35 of the following document, the section that begins with "this finally explains what drives 99% of all ground loops." It was written, btw, by Bill Whitlock, a renowned expert on such matters.

As you’ll see, the type of wiring can dramatically affect susceptibility to ground loop issues. Romex (i.e., NM cable) is pretty good in that respect. The worst case in that respect is discrete wires randomly positioned in conduit.

My thanks to member @Jea48, this Forum’s foremost expert when it comes to electrician-type matters, for calling this paper to our attention here a few years ago.

I’m glad you guys jumped into this convo because I have another question. 
Notice I said same circuit.

i need to branch an outlet off to reach the sub in the corner of the room. 
I don’t see why the sub would have to be plugged into the exact same outlet vice a branch outlet in the corner where there is only the two outlets in the circuit.

please advise.
My guess is that you'll be ok plugging the sub into a different outlet than the rest of the system, on the same circuit. Assuming (per the reference cited in my previous post) that the wiring between outlets is Romex or some other wire type which has the safety ground conductor symmetrically placed between the two current carrying conductors, or alternatively has them all twisted together.

The only way to know for sure, though, is to see how it works out, as susceptibility to ground loop issues is also very much a function of the design of the specific components.

Thanks Al! So why is a 20 amp circuit recommended over a 15 amp out of curiosity?
