Overview: Since a
subwoofer is typically located away from a system's primary power protection
unit, the SW200 is designed specifically for powered subwoofers. The chassis
plugs directly into and completely covers a standard parallel duplex grounded AC
outlet, and it provides two surge-protected and Clean Power-filtered grounded
outlets. There are also two pair of stereo RCA connections, one for input and
one for output, to protect your sub from potentially damaging events that may
approach it from the preamp signal path.
Dual Mode Plus: In the event
of a damaging power surge, your SW200 will disconnect from the AC power. The
Dual Mode Plus audible alarm then beeps to instantly let you know that your
PowerCenter has successfully protected your equipment.
SurgeGuard: Protects your
subwoofer from harmful power surges and voltage spikes. When a surge strikes,
SurgeGuard limits the voltage forwarded to the connected equipment to a safe

lines and AC power outlets.
Plugs Into Outlet: The SW200 is
designed to plug directly into a parallel duplex grounded AC outlet. There is a
screw between the two outlets, which is designed to replace the screw that
secures the outlet's face plate. This allows you to securely fasten the
PowerCenter to the outlet.

responds within one nanosecond to power surges and voltage spikes.
Audible Alarm: If this unit is damaged by a surge, it will beep to let you know that it has sacrificed its life to save your equipment.
