Sam Mullins Posted June 30, 2016 Share Posted June 30, 2016 I bought a Kronos 61 recently and of course have been forewarned about using a UPS for live shows in case of power glitches (because of the Kronos boot time of two minutes.) I already use a SurgeX 1810 for surge protection and power conditioning on all my equipment. However, that doesn't really solve the problem of a complete brief power outage. So I'm thinking about just buying a cheap UPS and using it in serial with the SurgeX. The question is what order should I put them in: Should I: a) Insert the UPS between the power outlet and the Surge X. All my equipment would still be attached to the SurgeX. b) Insert the UPS between the SurgeX and the Kronos (and potentially the other equipment). My guess is that a) is more desirable because you want to keep the power conditioning as close to equipment as possible. Presumably if I'm buying a cheap UPS, it might have it's own problems and it would be good to buffer those with the SurgeX. But perhaps there are other issues I'm not considering. Any opinions are welcome.
