NEC rating for speaker wire installation link : Interesting reading however that doesn't answer your question directly... You may have to speak with the local building/wring inspector if you are concerned about the rating. CL2 & CL3 are suitable for in wall use. If I were you, I would solicit the information from the place you purchased your wire.. they must have a direct line of communication with the supplier /manufacturer and should ba able to provide that information.

Need to mo we an electrical power point in a brick wall in my apartment

More information is needed.
Brick wall is inside apartment... what is on other side of wall?
Open existing electrical box. Drill through back of box and drill through wall until you come out on other side of wall. Install new box #1 on wall where drill comes out. Run conduit over to another new box#2. Drill through wall again until you come out on inside brick wall where you want to relocate original box. Install new surface-mount box#3 on brick wall. Then run wiring from original box. Original box cannot be bricked over or covered with building materials since it is a junction box where wires connect.
Other option is to install extension ring on top of existing electric box. Run conduit across face of brick wall. Install new box#1 where you need outlet.
Other option is to chisel away the brick and mortar from existing electric box down to floor level (or over to door frame). This will allow recessed conduit that can be concealed with matching mortar. Then run conduit across to new location. Cover conduit along floor with baseboard, or chisel out brick along floorline to accommodate conduit, then mortar over conduit. Or simply paint conduit to match brick. You must use conduit since wires cannot be run openly.

Fahrenheat ffh1614 wall heater gets bright orange and way too hot

You need to check the breakers or the actual power because I see the 1614 model as being 240 Volts. Unless you can change that rating inside the unit itself and it has been set to 120 Volts. IT appears from the wiring code you listed that the building wires are 120 volts. However a meter would be the definitive answer. When you are running 240 or higher (double phase) Black and Red are hot and white is neutral If it is 110 then black is hot and white is neutral. Since I cannot tell from the description posted whether the red is source or inside the heater, you really need a volt meter.

My mtx ts5510 stopped working while driving. Was hooked to an mtx thunder 81000 class d and its still working. ????

Inspect speaker for loose wires/broken wires. Check inside box for loose connection. Blown fuse on amp. Ive literally pulled the wires out of the speaker. The little mesh ones from the terminal to the cone. Look for that. If you do find something broken or bad. remember you can call MTX and fix for a flat rate on most evrything they carry. Ive sent several amps there. normally around $100

I just fininsh a room in the attic and I want to put a baseboard electric heater. which is the best way to run the wire from the attice to basement? Thanks

Wow - You're looking at quite the job!! The wire needs to be protected inside the walls or at the least inside conduit along the outside of the house - but that wouldn't be too pretty. I suggest getting yourself an Electricians fishtape ( if you don't already have one ) and choose a point either inside a closet or in a visually hidden location you can drill through the floors and the walls to fish your romex through. If all walls are sheetrock, you may have to literally cut a channel into the wall ( use a good metal detector to find existing electric and plumbing so you can miss those ) , bury the wire, and backfill with plaster or sheetrock mud. Either way, have patience - it is a long road you're going down. The easiest way ( not the prettiest, or necessarily legal in your area ) is to run some conduit vertically along the outside of the building and fish your wire into it. Get some wiresnot to help reduce friction and simplify the pulling of the wire in the conduit.Punch your hole through the basement and attic walls and make sure you seal those holes real good with silicone. Check first with your local city and or county building code enforcement office for the legality of externally mounted conduit / wire.
Hope this helps!

My Definitive Technology Supercube ii subwoofer is not powering on. I've checked the electrical outlet so it's not that. I suspect it might be a problem with my subwoofer cable but I don't want to take...

Unfortunately, the most common problem with powered sub woofers, including definitive technology, is that the capacitors inside dry out. To check the speaker, you can connect any line level audio source (like an mp3 player) to the speaker and see if it comes on. If it does come on, then you will know the speaker is ok. If not, then the speaker will need servicing. Powered sub woofers are not usually a DIY project.

I need to find out how to mount stereo MA-10D speakers to a wall. I can't see any mounting capabilities on the back, sides, top, or bottom of the speakers. Has anyone successfully mounted speakers like...

Hmmm. .U don't have option given for speakers to fix them onto the wall. You have to do the following steps.
Things U need are:
  • Masking Tape
  • Level
  • Pencil
  • Keyhole saw
  • UL Class 2 speaker wire
  • Fish tape
  1. Locate the studs closest to where you'd like to install your speaker. You'll want to install the speakers in between the studs.
  2. Tape the template that comes with the speakers in the center. Check to make sure your configuration is level and plumb. Your template will tell you exactly what size hole to drill to insert the speakers. Trace the opening you need to cut into the wall or ceiling
  3. Cut the hole using a keyhole saw or a drywall saw. Keep the section you cut open in case you can't install the speaker and need to patch the hole you just made. If the hole reveals plumbing, you need to relocate the speaker
  4. Run the speaker wire through the wall, or fish speaker wire from an existing installation.
  5. Install the brackets to support your speaker if one is included with your speakers. Some speakers use clips to secure them to the inside of the wall.
  6. Strip the protective coating from the end of the speaker wire, and insert it into the speaker jacks. Test your speakers now if the wires are attached to an audio source. If not, locate the other end of the speaker wire and hook it up. Testing now will save trouble if you run into problems.
  7. Surround the speaker with insulation to enhance the sound. Secure the speaker into place, and do any necessary patching or painting

I am trying to mount a plasma television, and i need to see if it is safe to run my data cables from my receiver to the television behind the wall. 1. Will it pass an inspection when I sell the house and...

You are correct in having concerns. Many articles on the web say cut two holes, run the wiring and you're done. This is incorrect, unsafe, and can void your insurance policy in case of a fire.

Many local building codes are based on the National Electrical Code (NEC).

First, the NEC does not allow flexible power cords (or extension cords) to be mounted inside of walls. This means you can't run the TV power cord inside the wall. So a new AC wall socket will have to be installed where it will be hidden by the plasma when mounted.

Second, all wiring run inside a wall must be rated by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) as Class 3, or CL-3. This means the cables between your cable box, DVD player, etc. must all be UL CL-3 rated. Fortunately, CL-3 rated HDMI, Component, Coax, and other cables are available. They are just a little harder to find and will cost a little more.

Third, make sure the wall mount you purchase can handle the weight of your plasma and is securely bolted into the wall studs.

If you follow this advice, you will pass inspection by even the most picky home inspectors and insurance companies.
