As other reviewers mention, it is difficult to fit the wiring into a standard (even a deep type) old work wall box. I found it easy to cut off the rear two-thirds of the box with a hack saw, and use only the front portion as a frame. I also needed to file down the box reinforcement ribs to accommodate the height of the VMT-100.
One reviewer commented on the problem of the box cover plate not fitting flush to the wall over the VMT-100 mounting strap. I successfully compensated for this by [CAREFULLY-DON'T OVERDO] gouging out about 1/8 inch depth of the drywall behind the box tabs, so as to recess the front face of the box in the wall. Another helpful technique was to use a nipper tool to clip away the ears on the mounting strap and to narrow its neck portions, which makes the strap fit more flush against the junction box.
Regarding the difficulty of working 16-gauge wire into the connectors, I also found that stranded wire did not hold well, but that by first soldering the ends of each wire, the connections to the volume control became much more reliable.
Due to the size of the controller, and the wires going to and from it, I found it best to use a deep box (or a box with no back).
I had no real problem installing these. The lack of directions was frustrating at first, but it quickly became apparent that the bracket is necessary since the faceplate is larger than a standard box.
They work well, and with the several color choices Phoenix has provided, (white, ivory or bone) they easily fix into most decors.

this did what I expected. It did reduce the maximum volume a little, which I had expected, and the wiring was tough with 14 guage. Read morePublished on January 29, 2010 by Brian

I bit difficult to put in the proper space. Pay attention, the unit is very deep, almost twice the regular box so measure first before buying the control.

Decent volume control. Installed relatively quickly. You can go ahead and cut out the back of your remodel or new gang box - this thing is deep. Read morePublished on January 11, 2009 by Jonathan Peyton
