In-wall volume controls
In-wall volume controls are a convenient way to turn the volume up or down in your room. Installing one of these is straightforward, but requires a bit of planning.

Our expert Norm will walk you through a typical in-wall volume control installation in this video. The best way to do this is before the sheetrock goes up, after your electrician has nailed up the outlet rough-in boxes.
Step 1: Install a low-voltage rough-in box. These are similar to the outlet boxes, but with a large opening in the back for pulling through the power and signal wires.
Step 2: After the sheetrock crew puts up the gypsum board, you connect the wires to the Phoenix blocks and install the volume control itself.

That screw head went straight through that sheet rock 5:35
Very informative, thanks
How do you wire a left , right and center speaker into one volume control? Or does the center speaker just goes straight o receiver?
(Same receiver is also used for another zone) Thanks
Hi Norm. Thanks for the video. VERY well done.
I now get the in wall volume control part.
But, What do we do with the wires (green, white, red and black) at the amp?
I bought a house with pre-run wires & holes in the ceiling for speakers about 10 years ago.
I FINALLY want to get things up and running with SONOS as my main music player.
Can someone please explain to me how Wattage ties into VU controls? Are the controls rated to support a maximum wattage of speakers downstream? Isnt a VU control just a big variable resistor, there must be ratings for them.... if I have a 15amp speakers on the left aide of a stereo VU control and a 400w speaker on the right, would the volume control work in the same way for both of them? Does it work the same for 70v volume controls? Any replies here I’d appreciate

In this case we are using a speaker of type JBL LS328C.
I have a question in my house I have speakers that have been there when it was built but we can’t find out how to use them
Anyone know how I could turn them on
Is there anything to cover the speakers from the top? To prevent it from being damaged by mouses. :) I presume I gonna need to build something to cover them + the wiring...
would it not have been easier to cut the hole out from above?
How do you run the wire through the ceiling!?
Would like to see a wire fished through the wall and also how you measured exactly how to get the speakers in right place. This usually is a two man job. One in attic, other marking the location below, and then they have to check for studs before drilling.
