New studio- electrical wiring

Discussion in 'Recording' started by BostonBassist, Sep 15, 2005.

  1. I recently had the luck of buying a new home that also had a separate building that was a recording studio 2 owners ago. the last owner used it as a storage area so I am slowly transforming it back.
    There is a feeder circuit breaker panel run to the structure, but surprising there is few electrical connections made to it. This is good to me because I can run them how I like & I have the skills to make wiring connections etc.
    So my question is, does it make a difference how the wire for outlets is run, of course not parallel to sonic signal cables. But is running the wire up over the ceiling and down to the panel better than running it under the floor or the perimeter?
    I anticipate this will only be the beginning of my questions in my new construction of the studio, but I'll be sure to try to find the answers in the forum before new postings!

    i assume your talking loop wiring as opposed to drops.drops are generally used if you have a drop ceiling because you have access to the junction boxes.so adding and removing outlets are a breeze.if your sheetrocking thats another story.you can't bury j- boxes,so plan wisely also avoid close proximty between audio and power conductors.i personnaly would not bury audio cable behind walls.i'd use non metallic surface raceways LOL
