Overview

Our take on the Panamax MIW-SURGE-1G

This Panamax in-wall surge suppressor is a great solution for space-challenged areas, like behind a wall-mounted TV — or anywhere you need power protection without clutter. It installs just like a regular wall outlet, and protects your equipment from damaging power spikes using Panamax's rugged and reliable Protect-or-Disconnect circuitry.

Note: Installation by a licensed electrician is recommended.

Although it has not been called to duty, the specs on this unit are very good considering its size. It is a bit of work to get it into a standard electrical box, but it does fit if you size the excess wires correctly. I'm going to use this on the rest of my wall mounted electronics.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

The Joule rating and clamping voltage were excellent compared to other brands. [ D  Apr 07, 2017 ]
Looks better than equivalent Leviton duplex surge outlet [ ROBERT W  Dec 07, 2016 ]
Same reason, warranty protection. [ Terry  Nov 27, 2016 ]
Replacing TV's outlets with surge protection. [ kevin  Sep 22, 2016 ]
Number 1 it is a Panamax product and number 2, I like its combination surge and disconnect functions. I also like its over/under voltage protection. Most people do not know that surge protectors do not protect your equipment from short and long term voltage issues. [ Stephen D.  Sep 18, 2016 ]
For wall mounted TV surge protection. [ Alex  Sep 15, 2016 ]
Figured since I need to move the outlet anyway, why not up the protection level while I'm at it. [ Christopher  Apr 15, 2016 ]
protect new dishwasher [ Grady  Mar 30, 2016 ]
I use for about 6 years Panamax surge protector equipment after an extensive search on the web about recommended surge equipment. Panamax is the best equipment on the market and best value as well. [ PETER  Mar 28, 2016 ]
low profile [ JOHN  Feb 28, 2016 ]
surge protection without having surge strip [ PATRICK  Jan 17, 2016 ]
Good amount of surge protection for the money. Good option for behind flat panel tvs. [ MATTHEW  Jan 04, 2016 ]
surge protection for projector [ Brad  Dec 05, 2015 ]

1 question already asked

Good question. My guess is that would depend on the size of the surge. [ Michael  May 29, 2017 ]
