I bought the "premium" 5-wire component "RG6" cable from Monoprice and it's already been run to 9 drops throughout my house from my media closet. The cables are total crap, but it's too late now to re-run the cabling, all the drywall has been put back up and walls and ceilings are re-painted.
The connectors are awful and frequently pop-off the RCA-RCA bulkhead wall plates, lose connection, and the audio wire on half of them have completely popped off the connectors. I'm constantly troubleshooting, pulling off wall plates, wiggling connectors, etc.
So, to make sure I have a more positive lock on the connectors, I'm planning to snip off all the connectors and put on F-Type compression connectors since these cables are "RG6". Not entirely true. Only the 3 component video (red, green, blue) cables are actually coaxial RG6 cables; the audio cables are stranded 22 gauge (appears to be) wire, enclosed in an RG6-size rubber jacket to match size of the 3 component video cables.
Here is the cable, 3 component video RG6 coaxial, 2 audio stranded wire with RG6-size rubber jacket.
In other words -- I can use F-Type compression connectors for the component video connectors, but I cannot use F-Type compression connectors for the audio connectors.
I want some kind of F-Type connector that's a crimp or solder type to use on the stranded audio wire. I do not want to use RCA, the bulkhead connectors I'm getting are all F-Type for inside the wall. Where can I get such connectors or is there another solution? So far, my only solution I can find is to get a BNC crimp connector to use for the audio wires and then connect a BNC to F-Type adapter so I can connect it to the F-Type bulkhead.
Crimp type BNC connector
BNC to F-Type adapter
F-Type to RCA bulkhead
I'd rather just go with an F-Type crimp or solder connector for the audio wires.
