F Type connector to Component  

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to install cabling in my wall and was wondering if I could use a coax wall plate and terminate it with a component connector for use with a front projector.

I was originally thinking of using a component wall plate but the coax route seems much cheaper.

Sure, it would work. Both cables are 75 OHM. You could do it one of two ways: Terminate with F-connectors and use a F-to-RCA adapter. http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=090-283 is a good place to find these adapters. Or, buy the compression tool that allows you to crimp RCA fittings on RG6 and use a triple plate for your PJ run.

Thanks all.

One question though.

I though RCA was different from component. Would I get the same performance out of an RCA connector that I would out of a component connector?

I suspect you are confusing the words composite ( as in video ) and component. Most consumer component video connections are RCA female. A few companies, like Integra, also provide BNC connections. The difference is technical and irrelevant to 480p signals at any rate. Feel free to use RCA connectors for your component video connections.

I'm confused now.

I thought RCA connectors were composite.

I plan on using the component cable to connect to an HDTV cable box.

RCA is the connector type. They are used on composite, and some (most) component, cables. Some component hookups on some hardware uses BNC connectors.

Actually, more accurately, a cable is a cable is a cable. There is no difference between a "composite cable" and a "component cable".
