1  Backyard Theater discussions / General discussion / Re: 100 ft audio wire run. RCA vs Fiber optic??? on: July 11, 2008, 03:37:43 pm
Funny that you said that Rooster that is exactly what I am now thinking will be the plan.  I have a ton of speaker wire left and it will be much easier to do that than anything else. 

Now the question is simply about the reciever and DVD player.  The OD kitchen has a roof but no sides.  if I put these two devices out there perminently i need to be concerned with the elements like dew or condensation. 

Anyone have any thoughts on what I can do to address issues like this?

I have shelving under the counter where I can easily place the reciever and DVD plyr but it is open.  do I need to put a door on it? or will it be ok?

Thanks

Ok .. so I just got off the phone with bluejeanscable.com and they agreed that there is a chance that that the FO line will not work at distances over 50ft.  They said it was pretty much hit or miss.

The solution would be to go with a coaxial digital audio cable.  I have never used these b4 but he beilives that there will be NO loss. 

I will give it a try and report back.

Thanks again for your input.

Thanks fellas but this is why the answer is not so simple for me..... There a few out there that beleive you cannot send a signal over FO more than 50FT.  I am getting both sides.  Some say yes, others no.

this is a sktech of my BYT. Hopefully this will clarify things a bit... maybe it will make things worse  Grin

Hey fellas -- I have been stalking the site for a while now and I am finally rounding third and heading home ... as it relates to my BYT.

I already have an outdoor speaker system.  So adding the video is relatively easy.  The one problem I have run into is:

I house all of my equipment in my pool house. The receiver, DVD/CD player, TV etc. Unfortunately, the place I want to set up the screen and projector is near my OD kitchen (has a roof to protect projector) 75-100 ft away.  I have decided to simply run movies off of another DVD player that will be housed in the OD kitchen.  This player will feed video to the projector, but I will still need to run audio into the pool house to get the signal to the speaker.

My question: should I run 100 foot RCA cable or 100ft  fiber optics???  Both will be run in conduit.  I have used both sites b4 and they both make great cables.  I am just worried about the length of the run and the degradation of the signal.
