kitchen or sink).
WARNING – Power Cord Safety
A. When routing your PowerBar’s AC power cord, do not place it near heavy foot traffic areas
(e.g., hallways, doorways, and 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 PowerBar™ immediately. See the Warranty Information section
of this owner’s manual for important details.
WARNING – Storm Precautions
In the event of a lighting storm, it’s always a good idea to disconnect your Monster PowerBar™; there is no need
to disconnect your separate components. Make sure that ALL of your components and PC products are protected
with Monster Power.
WARNING – No User Serviceable Parts Inside
If, for any reason, your PowerBar™ is not operating properly, do not remove any part of the unit (cover, etc.)
for repair. Unplug the unit and consult the Warranty Information section of this owner’s manual for important details.
ii
CAUTION – Exposure To Heat
Do not expose your PowerBar™ to direct sunlight or place it near wall heaters, space heaters, or any enclosed space
prone to temperature increase.
CAUTION – Proper Cleaning
In general, the only cleaning necessary for your Monster PowerBar™ is a light dusting. Unplug your component
from the wall before cleaning it. Do not use any type of liquid or aerosol cleaners.
iii
PROPER GROUNDING AND INSTALLATION
WARNING – Proper Grounding
Monster PowerBar™ requires a properly grounded 3-wire outlet for safety and to protect connected equipment. If your AC
outlet is improperly wired (no ground or reverse polarity), the green “GROUND OK” and/or “WIRING OK” LED indicators
on the front panel of the Home Theatre Reference PowerBar PB 1100/PB 2100 will not light up. If you’re not sure if your
home’s electrical wiring is properly grounded, have it checked by a qualified electrician.
Many older buildings are inadequately wired. It’s very common for a building to be improperly grounded. Building wiring
and grounding must conform to applicable NEC (USA) or CEC (Canada) codes for the Limited Connected Equipment
Warranty to be valid. If you’re not sure about your home’s wiring, have it checked by a qualified electrician.
Note to CATV Installer
This reminder is provided to call the CATV System Installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides specific
guidelines for proper grounding and in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the point of cable
entry as practical.
IMPORTANT NOTE – Proper Power and Protection
To completely protect your equipment against electrical surges, every AC power cable, coaxial cable and phone line
in the system must be connected to an appropriate PowerBar™.
IMPORTANT NOTE – Proper Protection and the Limited Connected Equipment Warranty
The Limited Connected Equipment Warranty becomes invalid if any wire (AC, coax, or phone), audio or video
interconnect leading into the equipment comes from a component that is not properly protected by the PowerBar™.
See the Warranty Information section of this owner’s manual for important details.

A NOTE FROM THE HEAD MONSTER
Dear Enthusiast,
THANK YOU for purchasing the Monster Power Home Theatre Reference PowerBar™.
This PowerBar reflects our commitment to creating performance-enhancing solutions
for home theatre systems, so you can enjoy superior sound and picture quality.
As a long-time audiophile and serious home theater enthusiast, I always knew problematic
AC power could degrade picture and sound quality. Unfortunately, ordinary AC power
accessories can compromise the performance of the components they power. So, I decided
to address the issue. And, with the help of Richard Marsh and other power experts, Monster
Power was born. This PowerBar’s advanced technology and innovative design provides
several unique performance and convenience features. Here are the highlights…
Noel Lee
The Monster PowerBar does an excellent job of protecting your components from harmful
power surges, but it’s benefits include much more than just surge protection. The patented
Monster Clean Power™ filter circuitry virtually stops the electromagnetic and radio frequency
noise that goes right through typical surge protectors which can degrade sound and picture
quality. In addition, your PowerBar also features patented noise isolation circuits that
separate analog audio and video outlets. The result is high quality sound and picture that’s
free from performance-damaging interference.
1
Other Monster Power breakthroughs include patented Tri-Mode™ protection featuring an audible alarm. This feature automatically
disconnects power from your electronics if you’re hit by a big surge. We’ve also included surge-protected coax and phone
connections to ensure protection for all of your components. The PowerBar also features a patent pending color-coding system,
which identifies where each component should be connected.
These days, home theater components are better than ever, providing thrilling and dramatic sound and razor sharp picture.
We know your new PowerBar will help bring it all together with Clean Power and superior system protection. With Monster
Power, you’ll enjoy the best possible sound and picture. And, that’s what home theater is all about.
Noel Lee,
The Head Monster

MONSTER’S PATENTED CLEAN POWER™ STAGES
Monster Clean Power performs two tasks that are vital to maintaining optimum home theater performance:
1) noise filtration and 2) noise isolation. The higher the Clean Power stage number (1-5), the more sophisticated
and advanced the filters are that reject noise generated on the AC powerline. In addition, the higher the Clean Power
stage number, the more isolation that exists between connected equipment for maximum rejection of componentgenerated noise.
Monster PowerBars featuring Clean Power circuitry are each designated with a Clean Power Stage. The PowerBar
incorporates Monster Clean Power Stage 2 circuitry which filters both AC powerline noise and reduces noise generated
by your connected equipment. For example, your television generates video noise which is different than the analog
noise your AV receiver generates. Clean Power Stage 2 features two ultra-advanced, isolated filters (audio and video)
to provide for the best possible AC powerline noise rejection and inter-component isolation for improved componentgenerated noise rejection. All of these features make the PowerBar ideal for your home theater system. To learn more
