speaker line surge protection
== Minimizing risk ==
Chime Master can provide additional surge suppression components for both ends of the speaker line to minimize damage to drivers and amplifiers. These components require a suitable ground at both the speakers and the amplifier. They work best when the speakers are mounted to a structurally grounded frame.
Metal framing within the tower structure needs to be bonded to an earth grounding rod, and the bell frame should be adequately bonded to the structural ground. Air terminals (lightning rods or strike termination devices) should also be used and bonded to the main conductor leading to the grounding rod.
