Hi guys,

I have a situation where I need to use three RCA couplers to bridge an RGB --> component adapter (male) to my regular component cables (male). My concern is that I don't want the couplers to be a bottleneck, as I chose the component cables I use (Belden 1694A) for the bandwidth and shielding they offer. Will any decent RCA coupler work fine for this? I can't find any data on the BW or shielding of couplers offered by Monoprice or Ratshack (the best I could find is "our coupler is specifically designed to pass a 75 ohm signal"). Thanx!

I've used gold plated couplers many times to get an extra few feet of reach on my component cables sending a 1080i signal and never saw any noticeable difference so you should be fine.
Ive just taped the connectors together using standard electrical tape just so they dont come apart.

It will normally make little difference.
