PLEASE READ AND OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING SAFETY POINTS AT ALL TIMES
WARNING – Power Sources
Do not plug your Monster AVS 2000 into a power outlet that differs
from the source indicated for safe use on the Monster AVS 2000.
If you don’t know the type of electrical power that is supplied
to your home, please consult your local power company.
WARNING – Grounding and Polarization
A. Your Monster AVS 2000 has a three-wire grounding-type
AC plug (a three-prong plug). This plug is designed to be inserted
into a grounding-type outlet only. If this plug doesn’t fit directly
inside your outlet, do not attempt to force it into the outlet.
Contact a local electrician to install the proper polarized outlet.
Never attempt to dismantle the plug in any way (or to alter
an extension cord) to make it fit into a two-prong outlet.
Do not attempt to defeat the grounding feature by using
a 3-to-2 prong adapter. Instead, call a local electrician
to install a properly grounded outlet.
B. If you use rooftop devices such as satellite dishes, antennas,
or any other component with wire that connects to your AVS 2000,
be sure the wire(s) is properly grounded. Use grounding techniques
specified in Section 810 of the National Electrical Code (NEC),
ANSI/NFPA 70 (in Canada, Part 1 of the Canadian Electrical Code).
This protects against voltage surges and static charges. Do not place
any part of an antenna near overhead power lines, or any other
power circuit. Do not touch any power line or power circuit. Doing so
may cause you severe physical injury and possibly result in death.
WARNING – Storm Precautions
In the event of a lightning storm, immediately disconnect incoming
signal and power lines (e.g., cable and telephone).
INTRODUCTION
WARNING – No User Serviceable Parts Inside
If, for any reason, your Monster AVS 2000 is not operating properly,
do not remove any part of the unit (cover, etc.) for repair. Unplug
the unit and consult this owner’s manual for warranty and service information.
Thank you for purchasing Monster Power’s Home Theatre Reference

WARRANTY INFORMATION
WARNING – Liquid: Avoiding Electrical Shocks
Do not operate your Monster AVS 2000 if liquid of any kind
is spilled onto or inside the unit. Do not operate your
Monster AVS 2000 near rain or water that’s spilled or openly
exposed (e.g., bathtub, kitchen or bathroom sink).
WARNING – Power Cord Safety
A. When routing your Monster AVS 2000 AC power cord, do not place
it near heavy foot traffic areas (e.g., hallways, doorways, and kitchen floors).
Do not create a trip hazard with the power cord.
B. If your power cord’s protective jacket begins to rip or fray,
exposing the internal wiring, shielding, etc., disconnect
it from the power source and discontinue use of the
Monster AVS 2000 immediately. Please see warranty information.
WARNING – Proper Cleaning
In general, the only cleaning necessary for your Monster AVS 2000
is a light dusting. Unplug your component from the wall outlet
before cleaning it. Do not use any type of liquid or aerosol cleaners.
Voltage sags (below the standard RMS value of 120 volts)
are often caused by power- hungry appliances like clothes washers,
air conditioners, and electric heaters, which draw more power
(over 1500 watts) than your house was designed to support.
This can have a direct effect on home theatre components,
including amplifiers and two piece projection systems, which require
a lot of power to operate at an optimum performance level.
As a result, the picture can lose brightness and suddenly
shrinkin size. Amplifiers change gain structure which results
in nasty distortions. They also won't deliver peak power,
dropping from 100 watts to as low as 60 watts, for example.
Your home theatre is very power hungry, too, often drawing
twice as much power as a washer and air conditioner combined.
This can cause even more voltage sags and ultimately,
inferior home theatre performance.
With AVS 2000, all your high power devices will maintain
the stability needed to deliver peak power and performance.
You’ll enjoy the smoothest, most natural sound and the sharpest,
brightest picture possible with vivid color. And, thanks to AVS 2000’s
sequential turn-on feature, your high power loads can operate
at peak performance without causing unnecessary electrical stress
that can often pop a circuit breaker or damage your components.

PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
SWITCHED OUTLETS
Outlet banks 1-4 of your AVS 2000 are “switched” outlets. This means you can program them for sequential turn-on. Sequential
turn-on is one of AVS 2000’s key features, helping maintain the peak performance of your components. Without sequential turn-on,
you’d power all your devices at once, causing unnecessary electrical stresses known as “turn-on surge.” Turn-on surge can overheat
system connections, pop circuit breakers, and degrade overall system performance. By sequentially powering your high power loads,
you can prevent turn-on surges and deliver all the stable voltage needed to maintain peak performance.

PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
SWITCHED OUTLETS
Outlet banks 1-4 of your AVS 2000 are “switched” outlets. This means you can program them for sequential turn-on. Sequential
turn-on is one of AVS 2000’s key features, helping maintain the peak performance of your components. Without sequential turn-on,
you’d power all your devices at once, causing unnecessary electrical stresses known as “turn-on surge.” Turn-on surge can overheat
system connections, pop circuit breakers, and degrade overall system performance. By sequentially powering your high power loads,
you can prevent turn-on surges and deliver all the stable voltage needed to maintain peak performance.
The Delay Time switches select
the delay time for that bank.

WARRANTY INFORMATION
PLEASE READ AND OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING SAFETY POINTS AT ALL TIMES
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING – Grounding and Polarization
A. Your Monster AVS 2000 has a three-wire grounding-type
AC plug (a three-prong plug). This plug is designed to be inserted
into a grounding-type outlet only. If this plug doesn’t fit directly
inside your outlet, do not attempt to force it into the outlet.
Contact a local electrician to install the proper polarized outlet.
Never attempt to dismantle the plug in any way (or to alter
an extension cord) to make it fit into a two-prong outlet.
Do not attempt to defeat the grounding feature by using
a 3-to-2 prong adapter. Instead, call a local electrician
to install a properly grounded outlet.
B. If you use rooftop devices such as satellite dishes, antennas,
or any other component with wire that connects to your AVS 2000,
be sure the wire(s) is properly grounded. Use grounding techniques
specified in Section 810 of the National Electrical Code (NEC),
ANSI/NFPA 70 (in Canada, Part 1 of the Canadian Electrical Code).
This protects against voltage surges and static charges. Do not place
any part of an antenna near overhead power lines, or any other
power circuit. Do not touch any power line or power circuit. Doing so
may cause you severe physical injury and possibly result in death.
WARNING – Storm Precautions
In the event of a lightning storm, immediately disconnect incoming
signal and power lines (e.g., cable and telephone).
WARNING – No User Serviceable Parts Inside
If, for any reason, your Monster AVS 2000 is not operating properly,
do not remove any part of the unit (cover, etc.) for repair. Unplug
the unit and consult this owner’s manual for warranty and service information.
CAUTION – Exposure To Heat
Do not expose your Monster AVS 2000 to direct sunlight or place
it near wall heaters, space heaters, or any enclosed space prone
to temperature increase (e.g., car trunk).
WARNING – Liquid: Avoiding Electrical Shocks
Do not operate your Monster AVS 2000 if liquid of any kind
is spilled onto or inside the unit. Do not operate your
Monster AVS 2000 near rain or water that’s spilled or openly
exposed (e.g., bathtub, kitchen or bathroom sink).
WARNING – Power Cord Safety
A. When routing your Monster AVS 2000 AC power cord, do not place
it near heavy foot traffic areas (e.g., hallways, doorways, and kitchen floors).
Do not create a trip hazard with the power cord.
B. If your power cord’s protective jacket begins to rip or fray,
exposing the internal wiring, shielding, etc., disconnect
it from the power source and discontinue use of the
Monster AVS 2000 immediately. Please see warranty information.
WARNING – Proper Cleaning
In general, the only cleaning necessary for your Monster AVS 2000
is a light dusting. Unplug your component from the wall outlet
before cleaning it. Do not use any type of liquid or aerosol cleaners.
WARNING – Medical Conditions
AVS 2000 is not designed for use with any medical equipment.
Thank you for purchasing Monster Power’s Home Theatre Reference
Automatic Voltage Stabilizer AVS 2000. AVS 2000 is designed
to stabilize power line fluctuations and maintain constant voltage
to your home theatre.

WARNING – Power Sources
Do not plug your Monster AVS 2000 into a power outlet that differs
from the source indicated for safe use on the Monster AVS 2000.
If you don’t know the type of electrical power that is supplied
to your home, please consult your local power company.
INTRODUCTION
Voltage sags (below the standard RMS value of 120 volts)
are often caused by power- hungry appliances like clothes washers,
air conditioners, and electric heaters, which draw more power
(over 1500 watts) than your house was designed to support.
This can have a direct effect on home theatre components,
including amplifiers and two piece projection systems, which require
a lot of power to operate at an optimum performance level.
As a result, the picture can lose brightness and suddenly
shrinkin size. Amplifiers change gain structure which results
in nasty distortions. They also won't deliver peak power,
dropping from 100 watts to as low as 60 watts, for example.
Your home theatre is very power hungry, too, often drawing
twice as much power as a washer and air conditioner combined.
This can cause even more voltage sags and ultimately,
inferior home theatre performance.
With AVS 2000, all your high power devices will maintain
the stability needed to deliver peak power and performance.
You’ll enjoy the smoothest, most natural sound and the sharpest,
brightest picture possible with vivid color. And, thanks to AVS 2000’s
sequential turn-on feature, your high power loads can operate
at peak performance without causing unnecessary electrical stress
that can often pop a circuit breaker or damage your components.
