Low profile 70V volume controls?
« on: February 14, 2011, 11:53:41 am »

Does anybody know a 70V volume control that can mount on a wall that has a depth of les than 1.5"?

I would like 100Watts but could live with a 20watt control.

I have tried our usual 70V suppliers but theirs are over 2" deep.
Thanks in advance.

I don't know of anything that is anywhere near that shallow and forget about 100w. Is it the in wall depth that is 1.5" or is there a 1.5"deep box that is giving you trouble?

1) If it is the box it might be possible to hack out the back, especially if it is plastic (doubtful if it's a 1.5" deep box, most are metal).

2) Is it a block, brick or concrete wall furred out then sheetrock? Blast out the concrete or brick with a hammer drill and chisel.

3) You could relocate to one side with a LV ring then blank off the existing if you have the wall depth.

4) If none of these are possible your only choice is to use a Wiremold, Panduit or other box as an extender attached to the existing box. Maybe not the most elegant solution but not too bad.

The wall is only 1.5" deep.  It was supposed to be thicker, but got changed.

We have already decided to but a box extender and move it out of the wall.

It is in the kitchen so it will be fine-nobody will complain the look in there.
