Thread: Where to put inline amlifier
08-21-2012 11:44 AM #13Senior Member
I have used amps where I had a 600 ft run of pre-installed RG6. The amp picked up the signal strength such that the settop box would lock. There is a place for them, they are worth trying when your back is to the wall. However they are not a silver bullet (panacea).

The cable is RG6, over 50 meters.
The switch is not the quality one (only one avaible in store), 9x1

Where are you located and what satellites are you trying to receive?
Why do you feel that your system needs online amplifiers?
Personally, I would first purchase a quality amplified switch and possibly consider upgrading the coax to a quad shield RG6. 50M is not that long of cable run and will not likely benefit from inline amps.
The dish looks to be of good quality, but be aware that the performance of this design is lower than a similar sized dish designed for single satellite reception. It is a neat idea, but with reduced performance.Satellite AV, LLC (Gold Sponsor)

Agree with all that's been said so far. The best amp you can install is a bigger properly aligned dish.My dogs pepper & graci - for sale: this domain

But in this case (in addition to what SatAV mentioned above), how many of your satellites need more signal?
... or maybe you just have a few weak transponders?
Have you considered one or two higher performance LNBFs?
Edit: and where is BIH ?
