  4. Looking For: Single Outlet Surge Protector for Projector

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Hey guys, thanks for offering such a great forum. I just have a quick question: I'm trying to protect a 3000 dollar projector, and I'm not sure what kind of single socket surge protector I should use. I was thinking about using a long (30+) foot extension cord, and connecting it to my Backup...
  5. Leviton Surge Protecting Outlet

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    Was wondering if anyone was using these? I was looking at the 5280, for one of my duplex outlets by the stand. My sub is in a spot that makes it tough to get to the surge protector, so I figured replacing the outlet and plugging it in direct was the best move.

Due to space constraints the manifold outlet will be limited to an interior opening of 19.5" across the joists, the opening running with the joists could be a few inches longer if needed...

    I'm looking for a wall outlet extender. I have several power amplifiers in my system that I want to run straight into the wall, but I only have 2 wall outlets (plugs). I don't need a surge protector, a simple heavy duty power strip without any gimmicks or technology will do. Anybody know...

    I'm redoing my HT and I picked up a few used Krell Monos (fpb350mcx, fpb250mc) and the power cord is terminated with 20 amp NEMA (see, for example, http://www.frentzandsons.com/Hardware%20References/plugandreceptacleconfiguratio.htm#20%20Amp). Is there any audiophile wall receptacle for this...

  14. 12V Trigger AC Outlet

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I'm sure there are others who are dealing with the same issue. But I didn't want the EP2500 and DCX2496 on all the time. They don't have triggers on them, so there's no simple way to just make them turn on and off with your receiver or processor. But if you're like me and don't want them to be...
