My balanced power project part I with pics

I got tired of waiting for my repaired ribbon so i could complete my main speaker project so I decided to start working on the quitech transformer in a box.

This thing is huge!!! 90lbs and 12" in diameter !!!

10 guage OFC wire for internal hot/neutral and +60/-60 wiring, ground will be with standard 16 guage hookup wire

Leviton 8310 Isolated ground outlets and Panel meters to measure AC Volts and current. I tested the voltmeter on my wall socket 125V rock solid :)

Of course a project of this magnitude can't be worked on alone.. Here's Cassandra inspecting the panel meters to make sure their operating correctly.

Step 1: Modify the leviton outlets by removing the ears so they can be installled closer to the edge.

Test mounted the first socket, the hole was cut with a 1 3/8" bi-metal hole saw...

Looking pretty good so far, I'm still waiting on the filters which should arrive tomorrow and then I'll hopefully have one working socket to test :)
