Product Details

Panamax Black Home Theater Power Management Surge Protector, Model M8AVPRO

Home Theater Power Management
AC power, telephone and coax lines can provide direct pathways for surges and spikes to enter and damage expensive audio/video equipment. M8-AV eliminates voltage irregularities & protects your AV system.

Reduces Cross-Contamination Between Components
The M8-AV-PRO is designed to provide noise isolation between the two isolated outlet banks so that any noise created by an A/V component in one bank cannot contaminate the power to the equipment that is plugged into the other outlet bank.

Monitors Incoming Line Voltage
Panamax's patented AVM circuitry continuously monitors the incoming line voltage and disconnects your equipment in the event of an over voltage or undervoltage (brownout). Power is automatically reconnected when voltage returns to a safe level, eliminating service calls or system downtime

Improves Picture & Sound Quality
The M8-AV's Power Cleaning and Filtration eliminate common symptoms of contaminated power (including loss of detail, pops, hisses, hums and visual artifacts) and allows your A/V equipment to perform up to its full capability.


  • Premium Filtration
    Improves Picture and Sound. Provides clean power by filtering out noise common to household power.
  • Coax/Sat Protection
    Protects equipment from electrical surges that travel over Cable, Satellite, and Antenna lines.
  • Telephone/LAN Line Protection
    Protects equipment from electrical surges that travel over Telephone and network lines.
  • AVM (Automatic Voltage Monitoring)
    Protects equipment against prolonged over/ under voltages by disconnecting the power and reconnecting it when safe power returns.
  • Surge Protection
    Exclusive Protect or Disconnect™ circuitry. In the event of a catastophic surge such as lightning, it completely disconnects AC power to connected equipment
  • 12 Volt Trigger
    Allows source equipment to activate or deactivate outlets 5-8 on the M8-AV-PRO.
  • 8 Outlets
    More outlets for all of your power needs
  • Hi Def Ready
    Hi-Def Designed to work with your High Definition system
