Anyone have some recommendations on cheap 4-outlet power boxes with Edison ends? I'm looking for two for my main system power.

I haven't seen quad-boxes there, but I love Monoprice.com for extension cords and longer IEC power cables for my powered speakers and pedal board.

They also have very inexpensive, yet good quality mic cables, HDMI cables, VGA, etc.

Those things are expensive everywhere.

I like Markertek for a lot of stuff, but they are not the cheapest.

The cable itself is only 1.10 per ft. But then you need the box, and Edison end, and strain relief, and some time to assemble.

Search Quad box electrical cord, and see what you find.

Do you mind orange??

I was just trying to find a more "professional" looking option than just an extension cord and a surge protector, I figured one would be nice. I may do that orange one, even though it might be a bit of an eyesore.

I got the cable from markertek and then the boxes and outlets from Home Depot. I also bought a can of spray on truck bedliner. Made up five 30' cables for about $180 or so.

Ill have to check that out. Sounds like what I need, I just really need two 4-outlet boxes for the main sends, just to make things a bit cleaner and professional looking.

Thanks for the replies guys. I'm still trying to find one. Something like the Furman SS-6B surge protector would work great. Would like something with a built-in GFI, but buying an external one wouldn't be a huge deal.

I use a few of these for some stage distribution. They have been solid so far. 12 foot cord is short though.

Amazon does show a White one with a 25 foot cord too...
