Bulhead Conceiled Electrical Outlet


I'm installing a hometheater projector within an existing finished bulkhead of a room. I plan to put it in a custom wood cabinet or box without a back. I have to figure out how to get electricity to it. Is it possible to put an electrical outlet behind the projector within the bulhead that I can access when the projector is not within the "built in" cabinet? I could attach the outlet to a stud behind the cabinet within the bulkhead. There is nothing else in the bulkhead other than recessed lighting cans.

yes you can. Use a clock outlet to give a recessed receptacle outlet

A clock outlet is OK. For a duplex Leviton also has this:

They are available at any electrical distributor

For a Super Solution Leviton has full blown recessed Entertainment Boxes:
Scroll down to the Leviton 690 series that has openings for 6 Quick Port Connectors.

Quick Ports are the greatest since sliced bread:

Bulhead Conceiled Electrical Outlet


I probably did not state my question cleary... I have an enclosed, previously finished bulkhead where I will create a built in cabinet to house my projector. I need to get electricity to power the projector. I was considering putting an elecrtical outlet inside the bulkhead (not recessed), but actually in the bulkhead behind the built in housing the projector... Any issue with doing this?

No issue with doing that. When the projector slides out, you can access the recep wiring.
