Hi I Live in a Apartment and would like to replace all the coax with
newer better coax. I run coax through drop ceilings at work and that
always aggrivates me to the max, so I can imagine how hard it would be
to run through existing walls. Who do I contact to do this job and what
would the estimated cost be? I tried the cale company before and they
wanted to drill through the outside wall and just wrap it around the
building and drill in the wall. BTW I assume the best coax would be RG6
You live in an apartment? Are you the landlord? If not, I suggest the
first person you contact is your landlord. He/She might have something
to say about you hiring someone to modify his/her property.
That said, try just about any electrician, alarm company, home audio
dealer, etc. All of these trades deal with retrofitting houses with
updated wiring on a daily basis. You didn't mention what your
application was, so it would be tough to recommend the "best cable" to
buffalo ny: the owner of the building. or if it is cable company cable
tv, the wire is owned by the cable company; ask them to upgrade it. if
it is already rg6 there may just be a bad splitter or end they will
First I agree with the others that there are a few questions not
I will only add that normally you would pull the new cable with the old
so whatever you do, don't try to help out by removing the old cable.
just go to partsexpress.com and get yourself some decent RG-6... quad
shield isn't really necessary, In my opinion.
Be sure to get plenty extra... if nothing else, you could buy some
RCA-type ends and solder together some really nice interconnects for
your home theater.
