I'm planning to move my equipment to a new spot in my room next week - so I am ordering the connectors from Monoprice right now. The "rack" will be some built in shelves that are closed on the back - but I will have access to that area from my utility room.

I plan to use this plate at the "rack":

One of these at the "rack" for my HDMI cable going out to the TV and also for the incoming RG-6 for the cable box:

I will be using RG-6 for the subwoofer connection to the back of that plate, and going to the sub location - but I am having a hard time finding another wall plate that has a RCA to "F" connection on it. Anyone have any sources they recommend?

I plan to put the front left/center/right speaker "outlet" kind of central and low on the front wall - I could add a RCA to "F" jack to that plate for the sub if I could find one...

Alright... looking at the picture I just posted I think I already have a solution - I can just take the "Sub 2" RCA to F connector off that plate and add it to another plate at the front of the room...
I'm still open to other sources though

I'm not sure how I didn't find that... thank you!!
I was looking in the audio section and wall plate section, would have made more sense to look in video!

Not that these little adapters are so expensive that they break the bank, but I recently picked up a couple of these from Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/RiteAV-Male-F-.../dp/B000V1JUKY

They are "more expensive" but with free shipping they ended up coming out less expensive than the Monoprice ones. Used two of them in a recent build, very satisfied.

Not sure if you are still looking for a solution but i used a F to RCA Hex hole insert. This is http://www.amazon.com/Icarus-Jack-Fe...7720670&sr=8-1 one that was similar to the one I used.

Oh nice! Thanks!
Right now I've got the adapter someone suggested earlier and a regular RCA keystone, but that one will eliminate the need for an extra connection/adapter.

Turn out Lowes carries the keystone pieces too... I always forget to check Lowes since home depot is half a mile closer

They are $7 from Lowes, which is kind of a rip off - but they will look nice so it's ok.
