I am trying to draw up a circuit in a drawing by using the defined duplex given in AutoCAD MEP. When I insert a duplex, the size is a tiny spec. How do I annotate the block that is already pre-defined in MEP? Below is a picture of how it looks once I insert the duplex. The drawing is scaled to 1/8" = 1'-0"
The duplex is in the number 6

Your display is set to "Standard" in the bottom right corner. That is often an indicator that you are using a drawing started from a Core AutoCAD template. The MEP default template is: "Aecb Model (US Imperial CTB).dwt" and has a default display called "MEP Design." We should see MEP Design or other MEP display in bottom right corner. With a drawing started from an MEP template, and an MEP display, the device annotative block should be about the same size as the text.
You could switch to model space. Ctrl +A to select All. Ctrl +C to copy all to clipboard. Start a new drawing from the MEP template. Ctrl +V to paste all to the new drawing. Use 0,0 when asked for the insertion point. The device may start behaving annotatively and scale properly.
Hope this helps,
