I am installing a few GE's around my house during a major remodel; "I" am the contractor.
For the downstairs hall I need to install a GRX-3x03 (1 or 5). When I read the Grafik Eye thread a couple of months ago, someone posted information about an electrical box in which to install the 3x06. The box was larger (wider) than normal and needed a mud ring. Well, that box worked perfect! Plenty of room to set the ganged neutral wires on one side and the ganged grounds on the other with plenty of room for the hot leads. Perfect..., well, almost perfect, except for the mud ring being for 5/8" sheetrock instead of 1/2", but why quibble. It is most certainly MUCH better than the plastic box my electrician used for the 3106 in my media room when he installed it for me a couple of years ago. There is NO room in that box. Now "I" need to figure out how to replace it from the rear when I have that wall open....
I searched and searched the thread for a similar recommendation to use with the 3x03. Would anyone know the model numbers for the two parts (box and ring), if such creatures exist?
Oh, in case anyone cares:
3106 + 3102 for the master bath (stored in an adjacent closet) controlled by the 18 (or is it 15) button NTGRX remote station IN the bathroom and another 10 button remote station in the master bedroom next to the door to the bathroom.
3106 in the media room
3104 in the dining room
3x03 in the downstairs hall (stored in a remote closet) controlled by a ???? at both ends of the hall.
3x06 in the kitchen (planned) with at least 4 remote stations.
3x06 in the family room (planned)
3x06 in the new addition (planned) with at least two remote stations)
Again, while I have anyone's attention...
Before I start buttoning up the walls, I need to purchase some PELV wire to connect the remote stations to the GE's in question. I read recommendations for Lutron, Belden and Liberty as suppliers. Is there any difference between them? Is one "better" than the other or recommended over the others? Although I am price sensitive, spending a couple of dollars extra now for something "better", or provides "something" extra down the road, is not an issue.
Thanks for ALL the information. It has come in useful many, many times.
