Inexpensive protection for expensive components.

I bought this to protect a big subwoofer I put in my record store. Installation: nonexistent really - you just plug it in. The coolest part is you can paint the cover plate to match your decor, which I did.

Pros: Ease of installation, compact.

Cons: N/A.

I purchased this to go behind my refrigerator and it works perfectly, We have had some heavy winds lately that have caused several power outages and I was worried that we would have some power surges that would ruin my refrigerator. This surge protector is slim enough to fit perfectly behind the refrigerator with two outlets at different angles. Thanks

Pros: Slim so that it fits in tight places.

Cons: None so far.

Peyton was very helpful when I placed my order. The item arrived on time, well packed and is exactly as advertised. It is a quality surge protector and allows plug - ins in a very tight space. Perfect!

Pros: The perfect surge protector if you have limited space near your wall outlet. Crutchfield's is a company you can trust to stand behind their products.

Cons: None.

Product works well showing you if there is a fault in the electrical system. I purchased this to take it on a trip to Cuba due to the variations in current there. The adapter is bigger that I thought but not heavy.

Jordan from Louisville, KY on 5/7/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These things are awesome for your 1 or 2 plug power protection needs. The build is great and the ability to screw the device to the wall plate makes for a sturdy install. I have bought two for modem and router protection (installed in separate rooms) in order to provide good surge protection as well as filter noise from the power supply to the internet connected devices (which there are several). So far I am pleased with their ease of install and snug plugs on both sides. Not had any power outages to see how they do with power on/off surges.

Pros: Price, screw to wall plate capable

Cons: None so far

Excellent For a Subwoofer

Crutchfield customer from Rexburg, ID on 11/18/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I'm glad to have both great surge protection and excellent power/noise filtering in one small device like this. Only a couple of minor negatives I encountered: the blue light is too bright for a dark home theater in my opinion, even with the cover flipped to hide some of it. And while I'm glad to still have access to the top outlet above this surge protector, there wasn't enough room to plug in the flat, right-angled plug in the top outlet like I was intending. I had to find a regular, non-angled plug to use. Otherwise, it's working great for my subwoofer.

Pros: Great power/noise filtering Small size

Cons: Can't use right-angled plug in the outlet above the surge protector The blue light is pretty bright in a dark room

Power protection to ease your mind.

David from Madison, AL on 3/28/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I absolutely love this surge protector! I have it mounted to the ceiling feeding an Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 5040UB and it does so with ease. It comes with a mounting screw and all you have to do is remove the face plate to your required outlet, plug it in and screw it down. It's that simple. I have used Panamax surge protectors for over 8 years now and they are a must in my area due to multiple brown outs and power surges. The face plate of this protector is paintable to match you decor and is easily removed. If you are in the market for a miniature surge protector then this is your best choice.

Pros: Excellent warranty coverage Simple installation Piece of mind coverage

Cons: Surge protector dimensions are a little larger than the competition but you get what you pay for

I bought this to protect the two rear Sonos PLAY:1 speakers I hooked up to my Sonos surround sound system. I needed this to fit in a tight space behind the couch, so the outlets being on the side actually works out perfectly. I also needed it to not block the other outlet in order to plug in a lamp, so it's nice that this turns on plug in into two without blocking.

love the 90-degree plug...works in low clearance spaces

Scot from Lexington, KY on 10/31/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this when we bought a new refrigerator to protect the integrated circuits inside the appliance from power surges. Since the appliance plugs into the side of the surge protector, there are no clearance issues. The product is well designed, comes with a terrific warranty (completely valid when purchased from Crutchfield, an authorized internet dealer), and provides piece of mind for a very fair price.

Pros: excellent build quality; warranty; fits in tight spaces

Cons: none

Bought this after a lightening strike burnt out my polk 600 powered subwoofer, yes a big loss. Thanks to this device I learned the outlet I used was faulty. Now I have my new subwoofer attached to this, with piece of mind.

Pros: Simple to use

Cons: plugs are on it's side which may limit where you could use it, i.e. horizontally on an outlet close to the floor.

Like Travel Insurance-hopefully not needed, but good to have

Happycamper from North Carolina on 8/7/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought it to add an extra layer of protection to a Bose system. Something good to have if something happened, but hopefully it will never be needed. Take it out of the box, plug it into an outlet (tells you if the outlet is properly grounded), plug in the one or two devices you want to protect, and you are done

Pros: Inexpensive protection. Easy to use. Great Crutchfield service behind it

Cons: None that come to mind

These are perfect for protecting your audio and video components. Very discreet looking and the blue lights are pretty cool to boot. I purchased 3 of these to hook up my Klipsch reference premier wireless system. I'm sure they're are cheaper protectors out there but I'm fine with the price.

Pros: Discreet .... Blue light is cool in the room.

Cons: Price is a bit high but you get what you pay for.

This item fits perfectly between the supports of my Sanus LT25-B1 wall mount and behind my 70" Vizio. Initially, I wanted to use a Panamax In-wall surge protector but my house wiring made it difficult, so I settled on this product. I was relieved when it fit perfectly behind the tv. Green function light is a nice touch.

Pros: Great size, nice green running light.

Works as advertised. It's a nice low profile unit that holds itself into the outlet. You can remove and paint the outside over - which is a nice feature - but it would be really nice if they offered it in black. (like most theater room ceilings are painted)

PR from Hummelstown, PA on 10/8/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The weight of the surge protector makes it at least seem as if you are paying for some protective circuitry. Slim profile fits well against the wall behind a book case with side mounted outlets allowing cords to come out through the sides. Having never had issues with surges in the past, I can't say if the pricey cost of this for only two protected outlets is justified. It would be nice if the unit had 4 outlets, which it looks like there's space for.

Pros: Good sleek profile fits along walls well and behind furniture.

Cons: Only two outlets, price.

BecsFL from Florida on 10/28/2010

I purchased quite a few of these individual outlet surge suppressors for equipment. I am very happy with the Panamax brand and can feel safe and comfortable knowing that these suppressors will do their job in protecting my equipment. I learned the hard way by losing over $5,000 worth of equipment due to severe lightning strikes. The equipment I lost was all the equipment I never had surge suppressors on, so take my loss as a lesson, and get protected, ESPECIALLY if you life in Florida... the lightning capital of the world. I am also very happy with the service I received from Crutchfield. HIGHLY recommended.

Picked this item up for my new theater system install. Read plenty of positive reviews on this product and decided this would be the surge protector to get. Crutchfield had the best price for an authorized dealer. Always buy items like this that protects your equipment from an authorized dealer. Those who do not, will find out the hard way; warranties will not be honored if there is an accident. Thanks Crutchfield. [ ALEXANDER  Jul 29, 2018 ]

I bought to protect my subwoofer because it stands alone and far from my power conditioner. I currently have a dedicated surge protector for it but the surge protector is bulky and take too much room. This "plug into outlet surge protector" seems like a good idea for protecting just one or two items. [ menatwork  Jan 22, 2017 ]

Q
Is there any type of recessed in-wall outlet box that this would fit in? I purchased this surge protector a couple weeks ago and have been struggling to make it work behind my TV that is an inch off from the wall.
[ Jake  Dec 27, 2016 ]

A
The MD2 is designed to plug into an outlet which is flush to the wall. If you were able to mount the MD2 into a recessed box, you would have difficulty plugging devices into the MD2 as the outlets are on the edge and not the front face. You may have to move your tv out from the wall a little bit. You could almost place the tv against the front of the MD2 as the outlets are on the side. Another possibility is to move your tv a couple of inches left or right if that would provide clearance to play your tv closer to the wall. If you plug your tv into the outlet directly behind the tv, the plug itself will require you space tv away from the wall an inch or more. The thickness of the MD2 might not require you to move the tv that much further out since the outlets on the MD2 are on the side. If you have a duplex outlet on the wall, use the outlet where the MD2 doesn't cover up the other one, so you can still use both wall outlets.

No. But you can buy an ground fault interrupter. It serves the same purpose. It replaces the existing outlet.

Is this really THAT much better than the Belkin SurgeMaster 6 Outlet Wall-Mount Surge Protector rated at 1045 joules, 43dB for noise or the APC P6W 6 Outlets 120V Surge Arrest Power Distribution Unit rated 1080 joules and 40dB?

I use this specifically for my Epson pro 6020 projector. It has been in place for two years and 2 power outages. Can I see an improved picture, hard to say over my monster cable that was previously installed. I use this in all my theater installs.

I have been very happy with it. I have my iMac plugged into it. I have a bunch of the Panamax big distribution boxes on each on my tv/receivers which I am also very happy with. The audio company that installed our surround sound said that Panamax is one of the best on the market.

Q
will this protect the "electronics" in modern refrigerators?
[ jerry  Nov 13, 2014 ]

A
I don't see why it wouldn't, as long as your fridge pulls 15A or less. You should probably ask Panamax your question directly, because they're the only ones that will be able to speak definitively about what this is rated for. Also, I'd read the both the manual for your refrigerator and the one for the surge protector carefully before relying on it. Your fridge's manual may say something about being plugged directly into a receptacle, and I don't think this would count (if the event you were challenged during a warranty claim). If you're that worried about surge protection for your fridge, you should probably install a receptacle or a surge breaker for the circuit your fridge is connected to.
[ Todd  Nov 14, 2014 ]
A
It will act as a surge protector for any electronic device. However this item is more or less intended to be used in sensitive electronics such as a/v equipment where interference can diminish your experience.
