The compact MD2-C plugs right into a standard AC wall outlet and provides reliable protection for two components. Run your TV's cable or antenna feed through the MD2-C's coaxial jacks to fully protect your television or DVR. The two AC outlets are placed on the sides to allow space-saving connections that let you move your furniture closer to the wall.

The MD2-C protects your gear without compromising performance — in fact, it may even improve it thanks to Panamax' proven noise filtering circuitry. And its wide frequency range lets it easily pass high-definition cable TV signals.

Product Highlights:

  • 2 side-mounted AC power outlets (always on)
  • 1 set of coaxial input/output jacks for cable TV or antenna (F-type connectors)
  • Protect or Disconnect™ circuitry safeguards equipment against all surges (disconnects AC power in the event of a lightning strike or other "catastrophic" surge)
  • EMI/RFI noise filtering provides clean power
  • maximum current rating: 15A
  • wide frequency range for use with satellite or cable TV (0 MHz - 2.2 GHz)

Simple space-saving unit

Written by: BillyBob from Ohio on March 15, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this unit to protect my HDTV and sound bar system in the master bedroom. Works great if you only have a couple of units to protect. Since it attached to a wall outlet, it provides an excellent space-saving feature.

Pros: Easy connection and space-saving features.

Cons: Only 2 outlets and the blue power light is really bright. Orienting the unit to face down rather than up in addition to using the unit cover to reduce light reflection helps.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased quite a few of these individual outlet surge suppressors for equipment AND
cable. I am very happy with the Panamax brand and can feel safe and comfortable
knowing that these suppressors will do their job in protecting my equipment. I learned
the hard way by losing over $5,000 worth of equipment due to severe lightning strikes.
The equipment I lost was all the equipment I never had surge suppressors on, so take
my loss as a lesson, and get protected, ESPECIALLY if you life in Florida... the lightning
capital of the world.

I am also very happy with the service I received from Crutchfield.

HIGHLY recommended.

Protect or Disconnect Circuitry: The Panamax MD2-C Surge Protector's exclusive "Protect or Disconnect" circuitry safeguards your equipment against all surges. In the event of a catastrophic surge such as lightning, the MD2-C completely disconnects AC power to your connected equipment.

Two AC Outlets: The two 3-prong AC outlets are turned 90-degress from one another to accommodate different style plugs or transformers. One plug is located on the left-side, while the other plug is located on the right-side.

Right-Angle AC Plug: The Panamax MD2-C Surge Protector features an integrated right-angle 3-prong AC plug which plugs directly into an AC wall outlet.

Noise Filtration Circuit: The Panamax MD2-C Surge Protector utilizes a Noise Filtration Circuit (EMI/RFI) to remove noise and provide clean power.

Coaxial Protection: One pair of universal CATV/SAT/ANT connectors (In/Out) protect your equipment from electrical surges that travel over low voltage lines.

Two Diagnostic Lights: Two Panamax MD2-C is equipped with two Diagnostic Lights (LED) - Power On/Protection OK and Line Fault.

  • Power On/Protection OK: This LED (blue) indicates the power is on, surge protector is functioning properly, and all connected equipment is protected.
