A church is repurposing a back room. They want me to relocate this rack to the floor right underneath the breaker box to the right. I warned them that the concentration of electrical circuits may cause interference with the audio electronics, especially the wireless mic receivers. They say go ahead and move it, then we'll see if there is a problem.
What do you think? Will they really see problems?

Architecturally interesting how that door opens into the wall.  Goes against modern practice.  If the hinges were on the jamb in the corner instead then the wall between the open door and the panel would be a good place for a Middle-atlantic DWR-17.
That light switch is in a bad spot then.  wonder if that's why the door opens the wrong way.
(It is relatively easy to move the switch if there's a t-grid ceiling -same goes for all the rack wiring)

That is interesting. Normally you don't install a door so that when you open it it can get in the way of things in the room. Proper way is to hand it so it opens against a wall like there is here. The switch is incidental, like the chicken and the egg, I think the door came first and at least somebody was thinking by not putting the switch behind the door.  :o
