Are there any simple switched power outlets that work with a 12V trigger? - for sub-woofer

post #1 of 6

I am in the process of upgrading my receiver. My current receiver has a switched power outlet. The one doesn't.
However, I like the idea to cut power form my sub when the receiver is off.

Are there any simple switched power outlets that work with the receivers 12V trigger?

They are, but not exactly cheap. Niles AC-3:

Does your subwoofer not have an automatic on/off?

I am pretty sure that my sub has an automatic on/off.

Just like the idea. smile.gif

We have been using the WattBox line which has full IP control.

Note that if you're doing this to "save power", the cost of any of these switching devices at >$50 would take years to break even (and that's assuming the sub's standby power isn't a modern <1W standby - ratings for EnergyStar, etc.)

You could also do something like an AMX PC1. New price is actually a little higher than the Niles (and only through an AMX dealer), but you can usually find them on ebay for $50 or less.
