Surge Protectors


Florida is well known as the lightning capital of the USA. Some of us Tampa residents might be aware that we are located in an area of Florida called lightning alley, which spans from Tampa to Titusville. We are definitely aware of the spectacular lightning that we have in the summer months and the catastrophic damage it causes.

Purchasing a quality surge protector is difficult with the billboard of information on the packaging. The most important figure to know, is the joule rating. The bigger the better.

Connecting a surge protector to your AV system is not as simple as you might believe. Not only does power need to be passed through the surge protector but ALL connections need to go through it. Including cable / satellite coax, ethernet cable and ALL device that interact with the TV. In addition to the above the proper grounding system of your home is critical to the surge protection process. Contact us to have a technician determine if your AV system is connected to your surge protector correctly!
