WIRING DETAILS

Here are a few pictures of some details that unless you have seen them before would leave you wondering what someone was talking about.

First are terminal blocks.   These are heavy duty junction boxes that house the "splices" for microphone and or speaker lines.   One common application is to splice between microphone inputs on stage and a multipair snake cable from a mixing console. The first picture is a 66 "punch" block splice with code rated cabling hiding on the floor inside a pipe organ chamber.  In the second picture we see a panel mounted to the wall with screw terminal blocks and lots of conduit. 

The third picture shows a recessed floor pocket.   These are heavy duty recessed boxes that hold microphone inputs,  monitor outputs, etc...    When closed they all most disappear.
