    Hello all;

    This question may seem similar to Kenneth's, but I'd really like to know about the quality of signal, interference and losses using RG6 with a Quad shield (from Home depot) and Snap n Seal connectors. These connectors might be F type, then have RCA adapters.

    My run will be 25 to 30 feet, and I am concerned about image quality. The component cables would go from my AVR to the place in my ceiling where I want to have a front projector one day, and I'd like to add this cable before closing my walls and ceiling with drywall.

    Is this type of cable likely to produce a picture that is equal to, say Monster 2 component cables? Again, this RG6 has what's called a Quad shield, not just regular RG6.

    Any thoughts? Thanks, Tom.

    For that length, you probably won't notice a difference. T&B also makes a snap-n-seal RCA connector. If you want to be certain, use a cable like the Canare V3-5CFB or Belden 7710a for your run.
