Sketchy distro?
« Reply #10 on: October 02, 2019, 08:51:47 pm »

I wonder if the NEC was really after the crappy hotel ballroom home brew distros? Every one I have seen made me squirm.

I gigged this past Saturday at a club that has live bands Friday/Saturday nights.
The installed(?) distro looked sketchy to say the least; a wooden box on the floor with five quad break out boxes (four 15A edisons per breakout box).
I should have taken a picture....but it wasn't my rig, so I gave it little thought.
(I've see these before in hole-in-the-wall places but usually they are mounted on a wall....not on the floor "begging to have beer dumped on it...".)

I did, however, stay well-back from mic while playing my sax...  You never know...
