Exactly. I need the extra "DC Offset" capabilities to eliminate my hum.
Question... There is no actual surge protection built-in, it says it does have the following:
Load (total for both outlets):
15 amps continuous rating. Magnetic circuit breaker allows for short-term inrush current of up to 250% of rated load.
I have two different in-wall surge protection outlets that I could plug the CMX-2 into (will plug both FV15HP's into this CMX since they are located next to each other which is temporary as I only have mirrored sub-preouts and will separate them in future when I get new receiver with XT32/SubEQ).
Here are the two outlets I have and wonder if I should use either of them or if you think it will degrade the AC Power thus affecting either or both subs performance:
