Connections And Indicators


Overview: This surge protector is designed to plug directly into a standard grounded wall outlet. It has two 3-prong outlets (one on each side) and a set of stereo RCA inputs and outputs on the bottom. It is designed to protect a powered subwoofer in your system. The MAX 2 SUB protects the AC power path to the subwoofer and the line-level RCA signal path between the subwoofer and your home theater receiver.

Plugs Directly into Wall: The MAX 2 SUB protects two AC lines by easily plugging into wall. Side-mounted outlets allow furniture to be moved closer to wall and accommodate the widest range of plug styles including transformers and right-angle plugs.

Protect or Disconnect Circuitry: This circuitry safeguards equipment against all surges, no matter how big. In the event of a catastrophic surge such as lightning, it completely disconnects AC power to connected equipment.

Capacitive EMI/RFI Filtration: This filtration system provides clean, unimpeded power for amplifiers and subwoofers.

SignalPerfect A/V Line-Level Circuitry: This circuitry design insures a clean, clear audio signal from your receiver to your powered subwoofer using the surge protectors stereo RCA inputs and outputs.

Diagnostic Indicators: This surge protector features Protection OK, Ground OK, and Line Fault lights to keep you informed of AC outlet status at all times.

Power Cord Security: You can attach your equipment's power cords to the surge protector using optional zip-ties (not supplied).

Lifetime $5,000,000 Connected Equipment Warranty: Panamax will replace, pay to replace at fair market value, or pay to repair, up to $5,000,000 equipment that is damaged by an AC power or lightning 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 conditions and information on how to make a claim please see the manual.
