Furman P-8 Pro Series II
20-amp power line conditioner and surge protector
Furman P-8 Pro Series II
Our take on the Furman P-8 Pro Series II by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Protect your investment like a pro
The P-8 Pro Series II has eight rear-panel outlets that can handle 20-amp or 15-amp plugs.
If you have a heavy-duty 20-amp circuit powering your audio equipment, the Furman P-8 Pro Series II creates a layer of protection between the AC wall socket and your gear. Its eight rear-panel AC outlets can accommodate 20-amp or standard 15-amp AC plugs.
You can count on Furman to maximize both the protection and the sonic performance of your system. Their exclusive technologies were originally developed to meet the extreme AC power demands of pro recording, film, and broadcast studios.
Continuous power monitoring and continuous protection
The P-8 Pro Series II constantly monitors incoming AC, and if it detects a significant overvoltage condition, 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. With Furman's Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus system (SMP), damaging transient voltages are safely absorbed, clamped and dissipated — no sacrificed parts, no service calls, and no down time.
In addition to high-voltage spikes from unforeseen events like lightning strikes, Furman's overvoltage circuitry will protect against accidental connections to 208 or 240VAC by shutting off the incoming power until the overvoltage condition is corrected.
Hear the signal, not the noise
The P-8 Pro Series II also features Furman's wide-bandwidth filtration, which reduces the AC line noise that can mask low-level and ambient details of your mixes, from natural rooms sounds to added effects. The eight AC outlets on the back panel are divided into two banks, to isolate your system's digital gear from analog components and amplifiers. The single switched outlet on the front works with 15-amp AC plugs only.
- 9 AC outlets 8 rear, 1 front (rear-panel outlets are compatible with 15-amp and 20-amp AC plugs):
