Our Product Research Team
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.
8 Protected & Filtered Power Outlets: The Panamax MR4000
features one front-panel AC outlet and seven rear-panel outlets. All of the AC
outlets (front & back) include surge protection and noise filtration.
- Rear-Panel AC Outlets: The MR4000 features seven
protected and noise filtered rear-panel AC outlet to protect all your AV
- Front-Panel AC Outlet: The MR4000 features a protected
and noise filtered convenience outlet located on the front-panel. Perfect
for temporary gaming systems, portable electronics (such as music players or
smartphones), or other personal electronics.
Note: All outlets (front & back) can be switched on/off from the unit's
front-panel power button.
Protect or Disconnect Technology: The Panamax MR4000 employs
exclusive Protect or Disconnect technology for surge protection. This ultra fast
protection circuitry completely protects your equipment from surges such as
lightning. When overwhelmed with extreme catastrophic events, Panamax
permanently disconnects AC power to equipment.
Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM): Panamax's patented
Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM) technology continuously monitors the incoming
power. In case of an under-voltage or brownout (too little electricity) or an
over-voltage (too much electricity) a flashing red lightning bolt will be
displayed and power to the equipment is automatically turned off. When voltage
returns to a safe level, power to the equipment is automatically reconnected.
Level 2 Noise Filtration: All outlets of the Panamax MR4000 employ
Level 2 Noise Filtration; a proprietary technology for removing various types of
performance robbing electrical noise from your connected AV equipment.
Signal Wire Protection: Protecting a complete home theater
system requires that signal wires coming out of the wall be protected as well.
Universal ultra low-loss coaxial protection, as well as LAN/Ethernet protection
prevents signal lines from carrying damaging surges while maintaining full
high-definition and high-speed Internet signals to your equipment for your
- Telephone & LAN Surge Protection: There is one RJ-45
input and one RJ-45 output for 10/100 baseT Ethernet lines. LAN protection
allows for 10/100 base-T Ethernet equipment to integrate into an audio/video
system without the risk of upstream surge damage from a gateway, switch,
router or other network device.
- Cable & Satellite Surge Protection: There is one
gold-plated coaxial input and one gold-plated, threaded, female coaxial
outpus for connecting your satellite, cable or antenna TV signal lines.
Coaxial protection circuits prevent damaging surges from entering through
signal paths and have the smallest signal loss on the market; less than 0.5
db of attenuation from 0Hz to 2.2GHz. Panamax coaxial protection has been
specifically designed to virtually eliminate signal loss. The clamping level
of 75V will meet and exceed the demands of both cable and satellite voltages
while minimizing exposure to damaging spikes and surges.
Front-Panel Lights: Blue decorative lights add an attractive look and
feel to your equipment rack or entertainment cabinet.
8' Power Cord w/ Low-Profile Plug: The Panamax MR4000 is
fitted with an attached 8' power cord w/ a low-profile IEC 3-prong plug. This
45° angle low profile plug allows your equipment to be as close as it can get to
the wall outlet while not blocking an adjacent outlets. The 8' power cord means
your installation location isn't restricted by wall outlet location.
Circuit Breaker: A circuit breaker is located on the back
panel of the MR4000. The circuit breaker will trip only if the total current
draw exceeds the maximum current rating (15A). This means that collectively, all
outlets must draw more than 15 amps before the circuit breaker will trip.
$5,000,000 Lifetime Connected Equipment Warranty: Panamax
will replace, pay to replace at fair market value, or pay to repair, up to
$5,000,000 of equipment that is damaged by an AC surge while connected to a
properly installed Panamax surge protector, if the surge protector shows signs
of surge damage or is operating outside of design specifications. For coverage
