  1. Great job ! Am puting these in my room so thanks for just showing the right

  2. me too

  3. Thanks for this video. Great help

  4. Hey, I’m 78 yrs young but I think I could do that. I’m pretty handy at
    things around the house. Good work, John. It was very informative. Good
    Luck on all your UTube videos.

  5. Thanks for doing this video. Very well done and informative. You especially
    showed how much easier it is to do the wiring 1st and then be able to hook
    it up from while not in the attic. I would have assumed to do that in the
    attic. Thanks again, very cool.

  6. Thank you Rick. It is comments like yours that takes the tedium out of
    editing. My recording studio has been unusable for a couple of weeks now,
    but when I get it cleaned up I have about 20 vids planned on ‘getting back
    to basics’.

  7. Great explination. Can you get a better camera though? Its just pixilated
    in alot of areas due to the low-definition.

  8. That was with my old Cannon. Got a new hi def Cannon but the upload time is
    ASTRONIMICAL. 75:1 upload ratio is insane. Took me 5 hours to upload a 4
    minute video yesterday, I am just starting to upload a 4:40 video…looks
    like my computer will be down the rest of the night. AND thanks for the

  9. I had a hard time with those clips till I saw this. Thanks for the guide.

  10. Thanks much Jason. Believe it or not those pesky clips STILL give me a hard
    time sometimes.

  11. hello, great video, why are you using 12 wire instead of 14 ? Thanks

    Very simple. When you use 12 throughout an entire house you only have one
    basis for box counts (watts per box). You also use all 20 amp breakers
    except for the FAUs. In the long run you save NO money using 14 due to box
    limitations and the time it takes to do layout, not to mention panel room.
    14 is obsolete and dangerous because ‘joe handyman’ swaps out a 15 amp
    breaker for a twenty when a circuit is overloaded. Just my opinion.
    Thankyou for the comment.

  13. Hello again, I see your point, my problem is my house as already wired with
    14 and a lot of 15 amp breakers, so if I want to install a second recessed
    can and run it off the the one that is there I would still have to use 14
    to connect the two right

  15. I would never use a hammer on the clips, I use a big screwdriver and push
    them in..

    With two torn rotator cups I can push about as hard as a barbie doll, so I
    softly tap.
