Protect your audio/video system from harmful power spikes with the Panamax M10-HT-PRO. It evens out the fluctuations in your AC power line that can damage your gear, as well as filtering out radio frequency and electromagnetic noise that can degrade your audio/video system's performance.

You get four outlets for equipment with higher current demands, such as a flat-panel TV and home theater receiver. These outlets are paired into isolated filter banks to reduce the possibility of interference between components. Six additional AC outlets let you safely power up the rest of your gear. You also get two sets of protected coaxial input/output jacks for your cable TV and antenna feed, plus a telephone line input/output.

The M10-HT-PRO reacts in less than a nanosecond when a power spike comes through the line, breaking the connection to protect your equipment. Then the power conditioner automatically reconnects when it detects a return to safe power levels.

Panamax M10-HT-PRO

Written by: Karl from Dushore, PA on January 25, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed a top quality surge protector. My area has frequent power loss and blinks. This product has a top of the line warranty. I wish it also had a couple of un-switched outlets that would provide surge coverage but allow constant power.
