Stop trying to validate this nonsense.
NO they cant, and the logic you state is your words and your own, not mine. IF you got something to say quit trying to put words in my mouth. Make your own argument.
Protection is just that, protection. It is not a gaurantee that any surge protection system will protect you. Even these fail. None of them will work without a ground to shunt the surge too. The first way the whole house surge works is
exactly as I said, It becomes the shortest route to ground, drawing the surge to the surge protector first. Technically this is why they prefer them installed on the top of the breaker box also................ to help ensure the path goes to
the shortest grounded protected unit.
All lines with longer runs to ground, are never protected automatically, however they are less likely to attract a surge current as lines with shorter runs to ground will attract more surge. So using a few longer lines for ones audio system is simply a good way of adding protection. I NEVER SAID IT WOULD SUFFICE AS A SURGE PROTECTOR.
As usual you like to quote a line or two out of context of a whole post, and make up a bunch of nonsense for a comparison just to be the intentional XXXXX you like to be with me, ever since I twice put egg on your face.
I am not trying to validate anything, I am just stating things as they are. Of course the first thing you do, is take one line out of a whole post prior and argue about your voltage drop issue in using longer lines LOL. Not even arguing about the rest of the post, then later you change your mind and decide to argue more, making up crap I never communicated. Like losing one or two volts is a big issue LOL. Your always looking for some peanut to argue about, and by doing so you think you are some "big man" lol. Mr, know all lol. Everyone must learn from you lol.
If i took lessons from you, I would never be where I am now, doing things I want to do. I would then be here everyday like you trolling over every post, waiting to stick your nose in and argue lol, trying to make myself feel valuable, which is exactly what you do every day here. That and threaten banishment lol.
