Hubby worked on his sound system project ALL SUMMER. [Interpret that as doing nothing other then the project at hand … the genius worked only on this project.] He designed and built a table, a stereo rack, two speaker stands, and researched until his eyes fell out, on which equipment he was going to invest in.
Here’s a gallery with an “example” of the paperwork involved in this project. Click on first image to open gallery.
Finally after months of hard labor in combination with intense research, the project was finished. How exciting to finally assemble everything together! The day came when we both for the first time heard what this sound system sounds like and we both were in awe. When hubby does his homework, he doesn’t mess around.
A problem arose. Every time one of us would turn our overhead fan off in our half-lav, the amplifier would cut out. After much consternation and trying to figure the source of the problem, hubby sent the amplifier to a service center, thinking he had bought a faulty amplifier. Then! Waiting several nail-biting weeks to hear what was wrong, he was told nothing was wrong!
Weeks and more weeks went by as hubby systematically eliminated any potential problems. After a lot of effort he discovered there are too many switches and plug outlets on one 15 amp circuit breaker to consistently support this high-end sound system.

My brilliant husband yesterday decided to put in a 15 amp Dedicated Circuit Breaker in our electrical service panel. He drew up a schematic in a matter of minutes to show me what he was talking about when I asked him to help explain what he was doing so I can make sense to you. When I saw this drawing, I silently asked, “You’ve got to be kidding me! I’m supposed to understand this and now you?”
I was told this is for his sound system only so that the amplifier will no longer cut out. I can understand this. That means in simple English that only this sound system will be plugged into the new outlet that Hubby installed in the wall, with all plugs from his sound system secured in a strip surge protector first. I of course assisted him with this job.
You got it. I held the flashlight again. That and being told IF Hubby should get shocked that I should with one hand behind me shove him hard to sever the electrical connection. To say the least, my Heart was in my throat as my eyes followed his hand. Why he did not shut off all electricity when his hands where working in the service panel is beyond me. But there again, I don’t think like Hubby.
