from Good OptionThis connector, if installed properly, works excellent with the Carol 5X wire found on this site. It's a little tricky, but here's what I have so far.The connector is a three piece connector. Follow the directions and after a couple tries you should be fine. One thing: make sure RCA nipple seats into connector with a click. That locks the nipple into place for compression when you finish.The Carol wire number is 100-858.This connector and associated wire works way better than the Belden 5X super mini wire and connectors associated with that wire.

from Tricky at firstThey are a little tough to do correctly at first, I wasted 3 until I figured out how to keep the center pin in place then broke 1 more. The center pin wiggles a bit (factory made connectors don't). Used the tool offered here, other compression tools don't look like they'll work.Even with the learning curve and less-than-factory quality, these are well worth it considering I ran a separate cable through the walls and now have an exact length cable. If I bought this as a cable it would have been much more expensive and it wouldn't fit inside the walls.I'd buy these again.... Wait, I just did to make some more custom cables.
