RG-11 Coax Cable

RG-11 Coax Cable

RG-11 Coaxial Cable Overview

Our RG11 coaxial cable offers unsurpassed performance in audio/video applications such as CATV, CCTV, satellite, HDTV, TV antenna, and distribution.

RG11 is a 14-gauge wire, a higher gauge than other video cables, giving it more room to transfer signal. RG11 cable provides 3Ghz frequency for CATV, HDTV, TV antenna, and video distribution. It is ideal in entry-point feeder systems running into building and extending to each floor and room of commercial and residential buildings. It is also great for improved audio and video performance in home theater applications. Our RG11 coax cable is UL and/or ETL verified as well as RoHS complaint—our cable meets and exceeds industry standards.

While RG11 coax cable does provide higher speeds, it lacks flexibility necessary for casual use and isn’t designed to bend around sharp corners or turns. Because of its thick size, RG11 coaxial cable is most often used as long-length, “backbone” cable thereby fully taking advantage of its high speeds, excellent attenuation feature, and low signal loss. Users of RG 11/U Coaxial Cables benefit from higher signal quality for television, cable and internet transmission and increased safety.

We also carry a wide selection of RG11 connectors. These BNC and F-Type connectors delivers superior return loss characteristics due to better impedance stability within the signal path.

Differences Between RG11 and RG6

  • RG11 maintains a better signal.
  • RG11 works at higher frequencies.
  • RG6 costs less.
  • RG11 is thicker, making it less flexible.
  • RG11 and RG6 are mostly interchangeable.

Hello Jareth,

Most modems will not work with RG-11 because the conductor is too large to fit into the connector. Most modems are designed to use RG6 cables and your modem seems to be designed the same way. Using RG-11 wouldn’t necessarily increase your speed or clarity either, so really there is no need. This all depends on your modem and your internet service provider. Below is a link to our RG6 Cables if you’re in the market for a new one. Thanks for your interest in Primus Cable.

Joe to answer your question the F-type connectors are different for RG-11 and RG6. The RG-11 conductor is a lower gage which means it would be too large to fit into a RG6 f-type connector. Also the dielectrics are different sizes also. We recommend using RG-11 F-type connectors with RG-11 Cables. Great question hope we could have been of some help.

Are the F connectors for rg 6 and 11 the same size? Is it the same thread size also? Thanks, Joe

So just confirming this but RG-11 will work with my cable modem for internet? The cords I bought are

I was looking at replacing my RG6 with a new coaxial cable and I came across RG-11’s. I know their HDTV’s already but will they also be for my cable modem that I have is Motorola MB8600 DOCSIS 3.1

So if I get the okay I will install them. Its for residential in my apartment. Its just I read this info you have about how much better they are. So I need to know if their usable for my cable, internet, and phone provider. Because I have my one coaxial cable going into a spliter then one each into my phone box, cable modem, and pvr.
