OVERVIEW

An Intelligently designed power conditioner with 9 outlets.

The Furman PL-Plus C Power Conditioner is what you need to protect your valuable equipment from power spikes and sags. An advanced Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus (SMP+) circuit provides rock-solid, maintenance-free extreme surge suppression with zero ground contamination thanks to Furman Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT). This unit has 8 rear-panel outlets and one front-panel outlet, a 15-amp rating with circuit breaker, retractable LED rack lights with on/off/dimmer control, BNC back panel connector for gooseneck lamp with front-panel switch, and a segmented LED voltmeter to monitor and display incoming line voltage. The Furman PL-Plus C fits in one rack unit and comes with a 10', 14-gauge, heavy-duty power cable.

Furman's Classic Series power conditioners feature the Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) circuit and the exclusive Linear Filter Technology (LiFT). The maintenance-free SMP surge suppression handles the most extreme transient voltage spikes are safely absorbed, clamped, and dissipated without destruction of the circuit. LiFT ensures optimal performance through linear filtering with no leakage to ground, protecting the audio and video quality of your signal.

The Classic Series units have super-bright, long-life, retractable LED rack lights that produce virtually no heat and provide an extremely long lifespan. There is an on/off/dimmer control for the lights. A BNC back panel connector will accommodate a gooseneck lamp for rear-rack illumination. A front panel switch controls the gooseneck's operation. The Classic Series units occupy one rack unit space each and have a convenient front-panel mounted outlet.

A master switch controls operation of the rear outlets. The rear outlets are split into 2 isolated banks to minimize inter-component interference and noise contamination. The left bank features three widely spaced outlets for accommodating, bulky AC power transformers, while the right bank has 5 outlets more closely spaced. The Series II conditioners come with a 10', 14-gauge, heavy-duty power cable.

Recently, I just built a new PA system for one of my bands. After investing several thousand dollars in a digital console and new power amps, we decided that we should up the ante on our power conditioning.

I've been using Furman gear since the early 80's (I've got one of their parametric EQs in a studio rack that's still rockin'). Their power conditioners have been in my equipment racks as long as they've been making them. But the ones we had been using for the PA were coming up on 8 years old. Being a Senior Electronics Tech by trade, I knew that certain components in a power conditioner wear out over time.

After comparing specs, features, and price we opted to go with the PL-Plus-C. The two specs I really look at for a power conditioner are the noise attenuation and the response time. A lot of manufacturers don't fully spec these, and in my experience an omitted spec is usually one they're not very proud of.

The attenuation and response time of the PL-Plus-C is on par with some of Furman's more expensive solutions, just minus the whistles and bells. I gave up having a digital live voltage readout, but for me the bar graph style meter is a lot easier to read across a stage.

Bonus points to Furman for adding the LED on the front to indicate that the protection circuitry is working. This is a section of power conditioners that takes the brunt of line surges (so your equipment doesn't have to). It does eventually wear out, and to have that "wear indicator" on the front is huge! And the lamp socket on the rear panel is a handy addition when working on your connections...because we all know how well most clubs are lit, right?

Finally, the unit is seriously built. It's funny because one of the only negative reviews I've ever read on this conditioner was someone complaining about the weight. Well, that rookie apparently doesn't realize that good noise attenuation on AC power lines takes some sizeable inductors, and those are use going to have some heft to them. I personally find the weight (12 pounds) to be reassuring.

So, how well does it work? Time will tell. Again, this is 1 rack unit of insurance. I can tell you this...in all of my time using Furman power products I have never lost a piece of gear to an electrical event. And when I can read interviews and see pictures of the gear that a lot of pro touring musicians and sound companies use and see the same piece of gear I've got in my rack...well, there's got to be something to that.

This power conitioner is supposed to be the improved version of the Pl-Plus Series 1.The biggest prblem I have is that this thing is TWICE as heavy than its predecessor. Gigging musicians today want their gear to be LIGHT weight and easy to haul.This thing weighs more than most power amps @ 12 lbs!It's a fancy power strip, not an amplifer.Bring back the 5.8 lb. Pl-Plus with LED read-outs!

Furman - its protection that just plain works!

By Cynthia

Comments about PL-Plus C Power Conditioner:

Furman protects my rack mounted studio equipment - I absolutely rely on it, year after year. This is my second power conditioner to protect another new rack. If equipment is not properly filtered, protected from transients (not just lightening - but dirty spikey line voltage from sources like air conditioning compressors) very expensive equipment can be degraded or even destroyed. My Furman's are also protecting my 500 equipment series rack, and my iMac primary DAW workstation, and SSL Nucleus control surface. Simply put - I trust Furman, it is worth every single penny. I don't take chances - neither should you

    Comments about Furman PL-Plus C Power Conditioner:

    I use this for my very high end old fashioned analog stereo system which includes two amplfiers, Sony ES CD player and biamped reference 1 speakers supported by 800 watts of Carver amplifiers. Great piece of equipment which offers peace of mind for my now very rare system. I have never heard a better system and I can no longer replace it since carver is defunct! It also looks good.

      Comments about Furman PL-Plus C Power Conditioner:

      My second Furman power conditioner, bought the first one 20+ years ago and still works like brand new. A must-have for routing AC to effects units, backline amps and main speaker power. Go with the PL-Pro for subs and have one less thing to worry about on the gig.

        There's not a lot to say about power conditioners, but I can say this is a very well built piece of equipment. I've not had any extreme surges to fully test it (hope I never do) but I'm confident that this will protect my equipment. Very nice to also have one switch to turn on the entire operation!

            You can get basic protection at a lower cost, but this model provides sophisticated surge, voltage and noise protection that exceeds the lower priced models. Review the specs and determine if you want the additional protection!
