TV Antenna Signal Distribution Amplifier

TV antenna Distribution amplifiers are best used when installed as soon as they can be after the lead-in wire enters the building.

Distribution amplifiers should be installed inline ahead of any splitters and as much of the lead wire as possible. If a pre-amplifier is in use, the distribution amplifier goes on the TV side of the pre-amplifier power supply before any splitters. They are of little use when installed behind the TV. When possible a TV antenna pre-amplifier mounted at the antenna is a better choice to improve reception quality. On large antenna systems with multiple outlets a combination of a pre-amplifier and a distribution amplifier may be necessary for best results

What are the biggest differences between a preamplifier and a distribution amplifier?

Hello Denny,

I guess a preamplifier makes up for line loss, what advantage does a distribution amplifier (booster) have?

Looking to pull in stations 40 miles away, attic install, one splitter, and one cable running ~75ft. I have determined the antenna based on needs and signals (VHF-L, VHF-H, UHF), there are no other stations close so no overload. All stations are the same 38 degrees as well 40 miles away.

Not sure if I should be looking at pre-amps only or if a distribution amp would better help in a fringe area....... don't know what advantage a distribution amp has.

(I know, put antenna outside right? Not happening though)


Hi Donny,

A mast mounted preamplifier amplifies the signal at the antenna output and a distribution amplifier amplifies the signal at the location it is installed. Both do the same thing and amplify the TV signal. A distribution amplifier is usually installed ahead of a signal splitter when the antenna is supplying multiple TVs. Sometimes a combination of both is best for large distribution systems supplying numerous TVs >. When supplying one TV either type of amplifier will work as long as the amplifier is installed in the attic and installed within a 6 foot coax cable length from the antenna output. I think the all around best choice in your situation is the LNA 200 preamplifier >.

I'm all for attic installs if the attic is suitable for TV reception > and the proper antenna is in use. We have a lot of customer's who have reported excellent success from attic mounted antennas. 

If you have any questions or if I can assist you further please don't hesitate to contact me.

Best Regards,
Denny Duplessis
