A proper grounding electrode system has nothing to do with this, PROPER BONDING yes, the Earth could care less in this case.

Also if this is an apartment, that means rental. If it is a rental unit, you do not hold a license to work on electrical work, I would just call the owner and let them deal with any problems.
Or get a Tic Tracer, We live buy ours for low voltage and medium voltage work

Even then for trouble shooting LV work it is a Wiggy style or DMM

LOL.....

Actually, you could say AC is DC......if you have a fast voltmeter and measured the voltage at a specific point....it would be DC.....

For the record.....speakers are AC....with a typical freq of 10hz to 20khz (if you have a really good set of speakers). Just don't expect to see 15Khz out of that sub woofer....
