At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.



SurgeGuard: The multiple SurgeGuard feature stops harmful power surges and voltage spikes.

Fast Response Time: The unit responds within one nanosecond to power surges and voltage spikes.

Audible Alarm: There is an audible alarm that will alert you when a surge has hit.

Six AC Outlets: There are six three prong AC outlets; the outlets are color-coded.

Color Coded Outlets and Cable Labels: The color coded outlets and supplied cord labels prevent you from accidentally disconnecting the wrong cord.

Right Angle Plug on Power Cord: The 8 foot, high current power cord is right angled to hug the wall. The plug has 24k gold plated contacts for corrosion resistance; this helps ensure maximum power transfer.

Wall Mountable: There are keyhole slots on the back of the unit that allow for wall mounting (wall screws not supplied).

Indoor Use Design: The UL listed protector is for indoor use only.

Proper Surge Protection: Every wire leading into or out of your equipment must be connected properly to the surge protector or the $10,000.00 warranty is invalid. You must connect the unit to a properly grounded 3-wire outlet or the warranty will be invalid.

Connected Equipment Warranty: Monster Cable will replace, pay to repair or pay the fair market value of equipment that is damaged by an AC power or lighting surge while connected to a properly installed Monster Cable Surge Protector. For conditions and information on how to make a claim please see the manual.



  • 6 three prong AC outlets (color coded, marked SPARE, VCR, DVD/CD, CABLE/SAT, RECEIVER/AMP and TV/MONITOR)

  • Master ON/OFF switch: Illuminates in red when on

Clever color-coding

Written By Claudia, Chicago on Saturday, November 28, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Color-coding, with matching tags for your cables, is clever and helpful when sorting through a jumble of cables and connections. The plug lies flat against the wall outlet. Good idea.
