Am not familiar with this kind of stuff, need help...

This was originally posted on APC forums on 2/12/2009


So I think my subwoofer keeps blowing out because the house I live in is old, and therefore the outlets are kind of crappy. Therefore, I need a device which will change the amount of power that the outlet gives to the right voltage (I think that's what it is), so that my subwoofer will stop blowing out. I would also like that the device has protection against surges and spikes.

Hi Arnold,

The Line-R LE1200 would provide Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) to keep the voltage consistent and provides surge protection: http://www.apc.com/products/family/index.cfm?id=67. The only problem with this would be the 10A max output of the unit. Depending out the power draw of the sub and anything else you want to plug in this might get overloaded.

Another option would be something from our Audio-Video Solutions: http://www.apc.com/products/category.cfm?id=15. I would suggest checking out the H line, listed as AV Power Conditioners. They are pricier than the Line-R series but are made to handle the large inrush current that most AV equipment will draw. It also has more outlets, delayed outlets, Data Line Protection for RJ-11 2-Way Modem/Fax/DSL splitter with protection (four wire dual lines),Co-axial Video / Cable protection, Coaxial 2-Way splitter with protection.

Check them out and see what you think.

hi,

i'd start by looking here to get an idea what APC offers and recommends or AV equipment: http://www.apc.com/products/category.cfm?id=15

it sounds like you are talking about automatic voltage regulation but maybe it would be a good idea to verify the actual voltage you are getting so we can make sure a device like a power conditioner will solve the issue.
