Protect your gear the way the pros do

Furman builds some of the most rugged and robust power protection gear around. The Elite-15 PFi is an impressive introduction to Furman's exclusive technologies for maximizing the protection and performance of your audio and video components. Many of these technologies were originally developed to meet the extreme AC power demands of professional recording, film, and broadcast studios.

Continuous power monitoring plus bulletproof surge suppression

Power surges can be quick, or sustained — both types can seriously damage unprotected components. The Elite-15 PFi constantly monitors the incoming AC, and if voltage reaches 15% above normal, it automatically shuts off power to all connected equipment. In the case of a sudden voltage spike, many surge suppressors are designed to "take a bullet" and sacrifice internal parts to save your gear. It's a noble effort, but it leaves your system out of commission while you send the suppressor back to the factory for repair or replacement. Furman's suppressor circuitry can withstand multiple high-voltage spikes and keep on protecting your gear.

Power Factor Technology: Like a turbocharger for your amp or receiver

Wide-open dynamics are essential for truly exciting sound. To cleanly reproduce instantaneous peaks or "transients," from a cymbal crash to a car crash, an amplifier needs lots of high-current power. During these moments, amplifiers — including those in receivers and powered subwoofers — may require more current than is available from your home's AC line. Solution? Plug your amplifiers into the Elite-15 PFi's high-current outlets. Furman's unique Power Factor Technology creates a "current reservoir" capable of delivering over 45 amps of peak current. Your amplifier gets the current it needs when it needs it most.

See and hear the signal, not the noise

The Elite-15 PFi's wide-bandwidth noise filtration reduces the AC line noise that can mask low-level audio and video details. The result is noticeably improved picture and sound quality. Twelve AC outlets on the back panel are divided into three isolated banks, which helps prevent noise created by one component from affecting the power going to your other plugged-in equipment. These outlets have hospital-grade connectors that grip your gear's AC plugs snugly and securely.

Product Research

Controls and Indicators


Power Factor Technology: Although it's rare for amplifiers to draw more than 4 Amps continuously, for superior performance it is vital that an amplifier's AC filter have low impedance and the capability to accommodate peak current demands far in excess of the RMS (continuous) current rating. The Elite-15 PFi's transient Power Factor Technology circuitry effectively creates a current reserve in excess of 45 amps (peak) that is cleaner and faster than a dedicated line from your local power station, benefiting any connected amplifiers' performance.

EMI and RFI Filtration: EMI and RFI noise entering your A/V system through the AC power line couples to the components and masks low level signals, compromising performance. This low level content is critical because it relays the harmonics and ambience in audio, and the depth and clarity in video. Furman's exclusive Linear Filtering Technology dramatically reduces noise, ensuring consistent peak operation regardless of load conditions or the time of day.

Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP): SMP is maintenance-free surge suppression, offering AC protection without sacrificing itself in the event of a catastrophic surge. The SMP circuit senses voltages so high that operation is impossible and turns the power off before damage can occur; if the voltage exceeds 140 volts or falls below 85 volts, power is removed from all the outlets and the Extreme Voltage LED lights. The circuit will attempt to re-set automatically within 5 seconds, so manual re-set will only be necessary if there is a permanent wiring fault.

13 AC Outlets: The Furman Elite-15 PFi features one front-panel unswitched AC outlet and 12 rear-panel outlets. The outlets include:

  • Video Bank: The video bank has four 3-prong outlets, two switched and two unswitched (always on). In addition to the linear filter, an ultrasonic filter specifically benefits video components (DVR, DVD player, projector, Plasma and LCD TVs, etc).
  • Audio/Video Bank: The audio/video bank has four 3-prong outlets, two switched and two unswitched. EMI and RFI noise is removed by the linear filter.
  • Amplifier Bank: The amplifier bank has four 3-prong outlets, two switched and two unswitched. This bank offers Power Factor Technology with a low impedance filter and current reserve in excess of 45 amps (peak) to accommodate amplifier demands.
  • Front Panel Outlet: The Elite-15 PFi features a convenient unswitched 3-prong AC outlet on the front-panel. EMI and RFI noise is removed by the linear filter.

Front Panel Lamps: The Elite-15 PFi features two retractable front panel LED lamps, offering an easy way to see the equipment below it, even when your theater lights are off.

12V Trigger: The six rear-panel switched outlets are engaged using the 12 volt trigger input, a 3.5mm mono mini-jack. The two switched outlets in the amplifier bank are delayed five seconds before turning on to avoid any potentially damaging speaker thump. Additional components can be triggered to turn on using the 12 volt output jack, also a 3.5mm mono mini-jack. If you'd rather not utilize the 12V trigger circuit, a bypass switch is located adjacent to the input and output jacks. By depressing this button, all outlets will operate when the front panel power switch is engaged.

Transient Voltage Surge Protection: The Elite-15 PFi features transient voltage surge suppression for standard telephone lines, coaxial cable TV lines, and coaxial satellite lines. There is one pair of phone input/output jacks and three pair of coaxial input/output jacks to protect your incoming phone, cable, and satellite lines. The coax jacks pass Both DC carrier signals and high bandwidth signals with an insertion loss of less than 0.1 dB. All the in-line surge suppressors feature Furman's exclusive Zero Ground Contamination technology; this aids in eliminating audio buzzing and the video hum bars that can result from typical in-line suppressors.

Rack Mount: Brackets are included to rack mount the Elite-15 PFi.

[ LEONARD  Jun 08, 2020 ]
We are moving to an area of Arizona that gets a lot of lightning, therefore I am concerned with surge protection. We are building a dedicated HT. My gear will be housed in a closet just outside the door of the HT. I plan to use Golden Ear Triton 2+, that need power, and 2 Powered subs. How do I plug these into the Furman? They are 25'+ from the equipment.

I live in AZ and have this current model Furman elite as a surge protected multiple outlet source for electronic test equipment. It has a row of outlet sockets across the back panel. You would need to run power cable through your wall into the closet. That would require making your own extension cords as you would need to reattach the plug to the cord after it passes through the wall via drilled hole. One can find the wire, plugs and sockets at a hardware store. Three wires, black, white, ground, 16g 300v should be a safe cord for a 25ft run to one subwoofer for a home theater. If you were going to run all three subs off one cord, I would check the total amp draw if it is safe for one plug into the Furman. If so, I might step up the power cord to a 14g 600v rating. Subs seem to only surge higher power for brief periods during a movie, so I doubt you would need something rated for continuous use at max power for 25ft. Moving to 12g means a fat cable, higher cost cable and connectors, less flexible. Balance the power to the cable size. The higher amp capacity of this Furman unit allows for options like this.
[ corey  Jun 29, 2017 ]
I had a similar issue. I have a 48" equipment rack where my Furman Elite sits (top of rack). For equipment that is external to the rack, I placed pass-through wall AC adapters in my HT room with custom cables made to run behind the wall and dressed back to the rack. Please check with an electrician to make sure you are compliant with local building codes. Given the thickness of cables (14 Gauge/Insulated), you want to minimize these as much as possible since they are difficult to dress and should be isolated from the rest of your cabling for potential interference. Looks great but not cheap...
[ CRAIG J  Jun 29, 2017 ]
On the back of the Furman,you will see outlets for high current components.Plug your subwoofers and your powered speakers into these outlets.
[ David  Jun 29, 2017 ]
That's a tough question because all my equipment is close by but I would call Fermin and ask them what they would recommend so that way you're not defeating your purpose of protecting your equipment my solution would be high grade extension cord
[ DENNIS L  Jun 28, 2017 ]
I have a power amplifier,the power supply is 1000 wattes toridal transfomer , does Furman ellite-15 surge protector can be used? thanks
[ Xianhao  Feb 18, 2016 ]

My receiver employs similar size output. I find it more than sufficient. It would seem absurd to run at full volume, wouldn't it? It can handle 1000 watt output.
[ George  Feb 21, 2016 ]
Yes, I running ,my big McIntosh power amp and 2 matching Yamaha power amps and a Paradigm Sub Woofer with a built in 2500 watt amp. Everything is running the Furman elite-15. I love this Furman elite-15 and it's stood up to many power outages with power going off & on 8 times in 10 seconds but furman with stood everything. Buy one.
[ ANTHONY W  Feb 21, 2016 ]
Hello Xianhao z, I use this on my Yamaha Power amp at 150w per ch. x 11. It has big a big cap that can power a tank.You will love it. lance
[ LANCE  Feb 21, 2016 ]
