    I'm currently doing research to build some DIY audio interconnects. In the process, I'd like to see if I can put a better plug on existing (Home Depot) RG6-qs video runs.

    I'm using an Ideal (crimp) F-type connector with a RCA screw on adapter. A couple of these have failed and it would be nice to get a real RCA type plug to crimp on.

    So my question is, if you are using the HD RG6-qs cable, what plugs work with it, and what type of crimp & Die tool is needed to put it on?

    Thanks ZJT:

    Guess I'll bring a RG6-qs sample with me to Markertek while purchasing the audio cabling supplies. Maybe they'll have someone there who can match a higher quality plug to it.
