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
