Surge Protector/Power Conditioner

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I wasn't sure where to put this but since it will be my new sub that is plugged into it, I'll ask here: is there any one type of surge protector, power conditioner, or UPS that is recommended for home audio use? I will probably need to get two of whatever I choose but first on my list of priorities is to protect my new sub which will be a def tech supercube reference.

I've heard so many different things about these types of products that I don't know what to believe, some say that power filters and conditioners will support longevity for the products and some say it's all BS.

I guess I'll actually need two of whatever I choose, one will be for the sub and the other will be for my receiver (RX-A2010), xfinity HD DVR, and TV (LG 50PZ950).

Thank in advance!

Do you own your own house?

I use the APC H10 for my two systems, mostly because the voltage at my house is pretty inconsistent and those boost or trim the voltage. I have seen it recommended that you get a UPS for any DVR because it is basically a computer, but mine seem to be ok without a UPS. Still, they take forever to reboot, so a UPS might be good. Check out the APC J25B at Amazon, a UPS and power conditioner.

I actually do not have my sub plugged into anything. In my case it is because of where it is located, but I have read posts where members say to plug subs just into the wall so they can get as much current as they need.

I do not. I live in an apartment in DC so a whole home surge isn't an option for me

I've read that too, it just makes me nervous having a large investment running unprotected.
