AbstractMost textbooks and building practice guides repeat the widely accepted rule-of-thumb that electrical outlet boxes should not be placed back-to-back or even in the same stud cavity. However, there have not been substantial studies of the factors affecting either the sound transmission loss or fire resistance. This study examines the former.
