Saved my home theater on the first day!
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought this a few years ago while living across the street from a power company substation. Spring thunderstorms would frequently strike the substation and send a surge into the grid. After a ballast in a florescent lamp blew apart in a surge, I decided to get a good protector, quickly. Crutchfield filled the need without delay. I installed it just before the next storm. Before even hearing the crack of thunder as the lightning struck, the Panamax SP8-AV shut down, protecting my home theater system.
Pros: Excellent surge supression, small size, ample plug spacing.
