The only thing you need is a proper end. What is on yours now? If nothing, you can add compression RCAs. If an F type end, then it is simple (and cheap) enough to screw in an F to RCA adapter. But if there is nothing on the end, now, whether you use an RCA end or an F end with an RCA adapter, attaching one or the other type of end, properly, requires about the same amount of effort. How is one "easier" (or harder) than the other?
I think your question is "why do they use RG6 (or RG59)?" And the reason is because it is approved for in-wall use.Edited by sivadselim - 5/10/13 at 7:27pm
