Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
This is my second Panamax MD2-C surge protector. The first one is protecting a subwoofer and this current one will be doing the same. Never had any catasrophic power surges/lighting strikes, but I feel protected with these Panamax products. They are well build and from other testimonials I feel this was a good purchase. [ Thomas  Apr 07, 2019 ]
A
We exactly what I needed. Not too much, not too little. And a small format. Plus, I trust Panamax. [ Leigh  Jan 30, 2019 ]
A
Recommendation from Kat plus consideration of the product features. [ James  Oct 04, 2018 ]
A
Purchased before, has the joules of protection I am looking for and don't need a bunch of outlets. [ BETH A  Nov 30, 2017 ]
A
After talking with Wolf and reading reviews Panamax has an excellent reputation. The unit also conditions the electricity, in the rural area I live in the power goes on and off not infrequently so this will help. This past week a factory explosion cause area wide power fluctuations. An APS Back-up protected the main tv & entertainment equipment but another unprotected TV would not work. Time to get additional surge protection and this smaller unit will do the job on bedroom and den TV's. [ BETH A  May 02, 2017 ]
A
fit behind the TV and included coax protection [ David S.  Mar 11, 2016 ]
