Which preamplifier do I need?

What are some things I should know about using the Titan 2 Medium Gain Preamplifier?

If you already have an antenna set up and are considering adding a preamplifier to boost your signal strength, you would only need two additional short length coaxial runs, one from the antenna output to the preamplifier input (which should be no more than 5 feet) and one from the indoor power supply to your TV set. You would use the current, longer coaxial run to connect from the output of the mast-mounted unit to the input of the indoor unit.

An ideal scenario for the Titan 2 Medium Gain Preamplifier is an installation in which broadcast towers are located at widely varying distances. The Titan 2 Medium Gain Preamplifier is the best choice for the majority of residential installations.

If you already have an antenna set up and are considering adding a preamplifier to boost your signal strength, you would only need two additional short length coaxial runs, one from the antenna output to the preamplifier input (which should be no more than 5 feet) and one from the indoor power supply to your TV set. You would use the current, longer coaxial run to connect from the output of the mast-mounted unit to the input of the indoor unit.

An ideal scenario for the Titan 2 High Gain Preamplifier is an application where ALL broadcast towers are 80+ miles from the antenna location and a splitter is used to distribute to multiple televisions. A single high-power signal from closer proximity may cause over-amplification resulting in signal loss.

Channel Master recommends the Titan 2 Medium Gain Preamplifier for consumers that do not have the ability to measure or calculate signal levels. In 98% of consumer applications, the Titan 2 Medium Gain Preamplifier is the best choice and will outperform every other professional grade amplifier on the market without having to worry about over-amplification of signals.
