Question regarding an isolation clip, double dry walled room and outlets/switches

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I'm planning a small dedicated media room, and am going to be doing isolation clips, double dry wall, and green glue. The question that keeps coming up, and one that I don't have a solid answer for yet, is what does the builder do with all the outlets, switches, and wall plates that are planned in the room?

Am I going to need to build a backbox for each of these, and then they mount inside of that backbox?

What if they need a stud to tie to?

What if the wall plate is only a mud ring, and no electrical box?

If they use retro style electrical boxes, will that pass inspection on a new construction home?

How have your outlets/switches been done in your theater/media room?

Thanks guys

It is actually possible to build a theater with no wall pentrations for the outlets and switches. You have to put them in columns, riser, stage and surface mounted behind a screen wall.

Put that is not always possible so PUTTY PADS

I think one of the answers the OP may looking for is the use of adjustable boxes to account for the extra layer of drywall.
