BabySneaks Posted July 5, 2022 Share Posted July 5, 2022 We had a tree eat through the neutral in the wires delivering power into our home on Mother's Day. All of my surge protectors popped as designed, and those things saved all my stereo equipment, including my Quatro Wood CT speakers and M5-HPA amps. Our furnace and microwave, among other things, were not as lucky. Since then, I had a dedicated power line put in for my stereo equipment, and I had a Type 2 whole house surge protector installed at the box outside our house to prevent a repeat of the great Mother's Day Fire of 2022. Even with this setup, I still have the M5-HPAs plugged into a power conditioner/surge protector because one of them makes a bit of noise from the transformer and the power conditioning seems to help. That leaves the speakers. Is it relatively safe to plug the subwoofer amp for the speakers direct into the wall outlets for the dedicated line that has the whole house surge protection? Or, would this be foolish? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
