Monster Splitter for outside?

Monster Splitter for outside?

Monster Splitter for outside?

Is it worth the $10 (standard) or $20 (premium) to purchase a CATV splitter from Monster to replace the one outside my house?

RE: Monster Splitter for outside?

What does the Monster splitter have that your regular splitter doesn't?  You don't gain anything buy having 24k gold on the case, the important part is the frequency range of the splitter.  Most digital cable services are well below 1000 MHz, so the standard 1Ghz splitter is fine.  I see that Monster offers a 2 Ghz model as well, if you subscribe to a service that delivers something above 1000 Mhz then yes, get the higher bandwidth splitter.

IMHO, most of the monster stuff is monster money, for little real benefit.

It is only my opinion, based on my experience and education...I am always willing to learn, educate me!

RE: Monster Splitter for outside?

I would recommend eliminating your splitter from the outdoors all together,by extending or barreling off the SP(service provider) cable drop to the cable line going into your basement.At that point you should start splitting your signal with your new 1ghz splitter.Most SP's will replace that old splitter,with one that has rubber weather seals on it.But,maybe this isnt your option.Having your splitter outside usually isnt a good idea.Good Luck.
