Affordable power protection from Monster Cable

Here's a cost- and space-efficient way to protect your home entertainment gear from damaging electrical spikes and surges. The AV 625 is a slim, well-built surge protector with seven color-coded AC outlets and matching power cord labels for easy hookup systems. You also get a pair of coax connectors for protecting your antenna or cable TV hookup.

Fireproof protection

At the heart of most surge protectors are devices called MOVs — metal oxide varistors — that absorb the excess voltage when a surge hits. Typical surge protectors use plastic-coated MOVs, which isn't ideal because powerful surges can actually melt the plastic coating, creating a potential fire hazard. The AV 625 features ceramic-encased MOVs for superior fire protection.

In addition to Monster's warranty on the AV 625 itself, they will also replace up to $300,000 worth of your equipment if it's damaged by power conditions. Now that's peace of mind.

Product Highlights:

  • 7 surge-protected color-coded AC outlets
  • 1 set of coax input/output jacks to protect antenna and cable TV connections
  • Dual Mode Plus™ power protection automatically disconnects from dangerous power conditions and sounds an alarm
  • ceramic-encased MOVs reduce risk of fire caused by power surges
  • audible surge alert
  • 6-foot high-current power cord
  • 1080 Joule protection
  • 12-1/2"W x 1-5/16"H x 1-15/16"D

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Second one I have purchased. First one still works great (6 years old). Great for the price and for someone who does not have a lot of high-end equipment.

Pros: Price, functionality

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent protection for the money.

Pros: Affordable protection for electronic gear. With fast Crutchfield shipping, what's not to like!

Cons: Wish it had right angled AC cord (like higher models) to allow the surge protector to be closer to wall.

7 Protected Color-Coded Outlets: The Monster AV 625 PowerCenter features 7 surge-protected AC outlets. Color-coded outlets and matching cord labels make hookup easy and prevents unplugging the wrong component.

1080 Joules: The Monster AV 625 PowerCenter provides up to 1080 Joules of surge protection.

Monster Dual Mode Plus Power Protection: Common surges and spikes can easily damage or destroy your valuable AV electronics. Exclusive Dual Mode Plus technology automatically disconnects your AV equipment to isolate the components from surges and spikes. It also sounds an alarm to let you know that the PowerCenter has protected your electronics from dangerous power conditions.

Monster Fireproof MOV Technology: Ordinary surge protectors use plastic-coated MOVs (metal oxide varistors) to absorb excess voltage. But powerful surges can melt the plastic coating, potentially causing a fire. The Monster AV 625 PowerCenter features fireproof ceramic-encased MOVs for superior fire protection; peace of mind that your home theater and, more importantly, your home is safe. The Monster PowerCenter is also UL-rated.

Low Loss Protected RF-Coax Input/Output: Surges and spikes can travel not only on your AC power line, but on cable TV and antenna lines as well. The AV 625 PowerCenter features surge protected coax connections for these lines. One 35" RF-coax cable is included.

Power On/Off Switch w/ LED: The Monster AV 625 PowerCenter includes a Power On/Off switch. A single LED (green) indicates that your equipment is protected.
