I have finished my basement, but have to put in the plug myself. Don't
feel like getting a permit just for one outlet.
So I have to install a double wallbox for 4 outlets. since my stereo
will use at least that many and I dont want those plug extenders to much.
The question is, since this is in a small closet that was created for
this purpose, and the closet is not really big enough to enter or use,
do I have to put the wiring inside of a pipe, or can I leave it exposed?
Its in a corner, where the back walls are cement, and the front walls
are drywall with metal framing. There is a standard door, and a big
glass door for stereo access. I am going to put a light switch on the
drywall already for a light that is just outside the closet in the
ceiling. So the wiring is already exposed by the light switch. Just
wondering if the outlet box I screw into the wall can have wiring going
do it like the light switch, or if I should put it into a pipe somehow!?
Of course without the pipe I am not sure how to screw the wiring in
place against the cement wall...
The wiring is 12Ga/20A (yellow).
