I'm currently building a home and have plans to install in-ceiling speakers in my family room when the house is finished. The package that the builder offers is obnoxiously expensive and I can't do it before the walls go up. The benefit though is that I can take copious pictures before the walls go up to help me out.
So I know which joist bay I want to install the speakers in. Unfortunately there is a recessed light there. There's definitely more than enough space to run the wires there, but I'm just a little worried about the heat generated from the light and it damaging the speaker wire or worse. I just had a phase 2/framing inspection on Friday and I asked the inspector how close speaker wire can get to the light and he said pretty darn close.
I just wanted to double check that. Any thoughts? Again, I'll be using CL2 rated cable.
