Best Place to Bulk Wiring Online?

maggie530November 23, 2012

What is currently the best place to purchase good wiring (CAT6, Quad Shield RG6, good (100% oxygen free copper) speaker wiring, etc.)? Know this has been discussed before but didn't see recent discussion and store always seem to be opening and closing. Any thoughts? Buying a bunch of wire for new construction...

Monoprice.com is your one stop shop. I have ordered from them in the pat and delivery to me here in Canada has been quick.

glaswegian - just looked at Monoprice. Their price on quadshield coax is $148/1000feet. Home Depot is only $98. Do you know why?

Why do you think that you need RG6 Quad, instead of RG6? RG6 Quad is only used for high noise/interference applications. It WILL NOT improve signal strength at all, never, ever, never, ever! All the specs are the same - it just helps eliminate external interference.

Don't really know. I was always told to use quad shield for noise/interference reasons and b/c it doesn't cost that much more. Do you know if there is a difference between the quad shield that monoprice sells and the one home depot sells? Should I stick to RG6 only? The difference is about $15 a spool.

While at first, the stiffness of the RG6 Quad vs RG6 doesn't seem like much, after pulling 1000' of it through walls and stud cavities, you'll be talking like a pirate!
