Is it really carrying electricity? Maybe this mess of wires is just speaker cables for a home theater hi-fi system....

It looks like there might be to much cable jacket in the box and I don't think those 2x4s are properly bonded.

This was sent to me by a friend of mine in a nearby city. This is a basement finish done by an owner-builder. They didn't have any more room in the sub panel, so they took a 12-2 from a 50 amp breaker and created this mess to make more circuits shocked

I give up. So what is the problem, Ryan?
