RG6 Quad Shield. Coaxial cable with insulated center wire and four layers of shielding. Supports multiple channels and digital data. Used for cable TV, digital satellite, cable modem and high speed interactive video services
High-quality Quad shielded coaxial video cable used to transmit video signals throughout the home.
RG6 cable is now specified for most new coaxial cabling in homes. It uses an 18 gauge center conductor and typically is quad-shielded (4 shields: 2 foil and 2 braids). It too uses an "F" connector which can be connected to those used by RG59. However, the connectors are different due to the RG6 cable's thickness. It is suitable for distribution of all cable and satellite system video as well as for cable modem distribution.
Rg6 cables are pretty much the same as RG59 coaxial cables except they are easier to use. The RF connector at the end of an R6 cable is sometimes a spring system rather than a screw system, which makes it slightly more prone to breaking, but much easier to use, especially in confined spaces.
Higher grade coaxial cable used for cable modems and satellite cabling.
The coaxial cable recommended by DBS manufacturers. It is a larger gauge than RG6.
The coaxial cable recommended by satellite TV system manufacturers. It is a larger gauge than RG59.
