I just recently purchased my first pair of speakers
I have the rti10's for my front and the cs400i for the center and the rt55i's for my rear with the psw404 for my sub. I also got an Integra 5.6 receiver. I will also shortly be purchasing a big screen LCD hdtv.
My question is about power conditioning
1. I am trying to decide on what I need for this set up. I have a APC smartups 1500 that is sitting around and has a bad battery. I checked on the prices for new batteries and they will be around 100-130 bucks. My main goal is not extended run time on battery and I only care about the power conditioning. I have read that the smartups will be able to remove the EMI from the line and also provide a clean sine wave. Also they will take care of surges etc... Is this actually true?
2.A friend of mine suggested that I could put smaller 12 volt batteries in it for about 30 bucks and that might still provide the necessary power conditioning and save me some money. Any thoughts on this?
3. If not whats a good power conditioner to buy? I do not want to spend a lot more money as I already went overboard on the speakers and reciever.
thanks for your help guys. I appreciate any help
I hope this is in the right forum if not can someone please move it to where it need to be
