    I installed a whole-house surge suppressor system on main panel, CATV and telco lines (Eaton CHSPULTRA, DCXCAB2, and DHW4PT, respectively) last year. Between that and my point-of-use surge protection power strips and outlets serving nearly all of my electronics, I was feeling pretty good about...

    I'm looking for recommendations for surge and lightning protection for my home theater and stereo systems. What is a reasonable price to pay? I suppose voltage regulation would be nice to have too, but not absolutely necessary. Budget would be up to $500. Thanks, Mike

    I'm trying to help a friend set up his system. Unfortunately I have to do it over the phone since he lives 300km away. The problem he's having is that his Denon 789 shuts off after 10-30 minutes of use. He's not very technically inclined so it's hard to diagnose from his description of what's...

  17. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    So I had decided for my next project to build a down firing sub. The main reason for the down firing design was to protect the sub from the 2 year old. A recent post on here talked about the downsides of the down firing. The one I'm concerned with is gravity wearing out the sub over time. I...
