Neat-O: Cleaning out the Closet
By Arlen Schweiger
The panels on this enclosure wouldn't close until the wiring was cleaned up.

It would be one thing if the owner of this Southern California home could blame his closet wiring mess on the San Andreas Fault. But unfortunately, it was the fault of the original installation company that the owner needed to call on another CE pro to check out why his low-voltage panel doors wouldn't close.

The client found San Diego-based Audio Impact as a referral from another of the integrator's customers, and the tidiness of this result will likely earn more referral calls.



When system designer Ryan Lipkovicius of Audio Impact visited the home, it didn't take him long to discover the wire spillage and sources of the homeowner's complaints. Along with simply being unable to close the panel properly, the owner noted his home's sporadic telephone and Internet problems.

None of the master suite closet space in this immediate area could be used. At first glance, it was obvious why the panels wouldn't close, says Lipkovicius. Upon further inspection, there were notable cable patches and splices. The modem and router were dangling in place by the Cat 5e Ethernet cable that was connected to them.
