I ran RG6 for my subwoofer cables, and my subwoofer accepts a single RCA. I was planning on getting a F connector wall plate and then just buying a F->RCA Adapter.


However, I'd perfer to usa a RCA wallplate that accepts the F connector on the backside of the plate.


This is how the 5.1 Audio Wallplates on Monoprice are structured. Problem is, I can't seem to find any wall plate like this anywhere with a single RCA jack.


I can't even find a single RCA->RCA wallplate where I could put the adapter behind the wall. Just trying to figure out how others handled this situation.


Thanks!

The RG6 cable I bought from monoprice had RCA connectors and I'm just using RCA coupler (RCA front and back) keystones on the wall plates. No adapters needed in my case.


Maybe cut the end and add an RCA connector? Not ideal, but it might be an option...

is there a particular reason you want to keep the f-pin connector on one end? why not rca all the way through?

I guess because i've never terminated an RG6 cable with a RCA plug.

Combine together and you should have what you need for under $5. Alternately you can just buy an f connector wall plate, pull out the f connector part and add the f to rca connector from the first link.

I'm 30 mins away from the B&M Parts Express, and they are having a tent sale this weekend, so I'll try to find these there...

I have a big bag of F connectors and the tool for it. I dont have rca connectors or the tool for it. I found it easier to just terminate the wall plate as an F connector, then you can make the patch cable custom length to the sub very easily and just stick an F->RCA adapter on it as it enters the sub. I like this as it allows me to make custom length cables without out additional tools or connectors.

FWIW I terminated my RG6 cable with an F connector (first timer on that) and it was easy. Then I added an F to RCA adaptor and plugged that RCA into an RCA coupler keystone jack. I could have put together a better solution, but was impatient one day and walked into HD to pick up the parts. Works great for me and I just connect an RCA to my sub.


Cable w/F connector -> F to RCA adaptor -> Wall plate w/ RCA coupler keystone jack
