Hi people!

I have a problem with my speakers.
Their woofer's chip has already burnt out twice. My vendor says that this is because of a higher than normal voltage in my house , and reccommends me not to use either my UPS's battery backup or my AC mains connection . He has advised me to use my UPS' printer power supply only.

What do you say??? Does the printer power port on the UPS (without battery backup) , actually give a stabilized power supply?? Or am i better of with the mains or with the battery backup port.???

Stay beautiful ,
Raghav. :) :tazz:

Speakers do not require [BATTERY BACKUP] and are not a [SUITABLE LOAD] for [INTERACTIVE TYPE] UPS –

The UPS [PRINTER POWER] or [BYPASS] outlets on the UPS provides protection against [SURGES] & [SPIKES] – The [AVR] outlets on the UPS can not handle high [INRUSH] currents that [LASER PRINTERS] & [PLOTTERS] have – These [AVR] outlets can be used for [INKJET PRINTERS] & other low power consuming printers –

[PEAK VA] ratings on the [INTERACTIVE TYPE] are not suitable for [HIGH INRUSH] currents or the high peak current spikes draw from [FAST RESPONDING] speakers –

Usually you can tell the [OUTPUT RATING] of the UPS by the number of [AVR] outlets:

2 Outlets are about 750 VA – Power for PC & Monitor –
4 Outlets are about 1000 VA – Power for PC – Monitor – External Backup Drive – Printer –
6 Outlets are about 1500 VA – Power for 2 PC – 2 Monitor – 2 External Backup Drive –

If you require a better [INPUT POWER REGULATION] – you need to obtain a 120 VAC – 60 Hz – AC Regulated Power Supply – which is rather [$$ pricy $$] for Speaker protection –
