All OK to run together, but keep away from mains as required in the regs. WF100 OK, make sure speaker cable big enough the job especially if running 4ohm speakers over 10m. Cat7a is a bit odd, are you fitting Bang and Olufsen, if not stick to Cat5e/6.


Dupe...

hi
thank you for your reply
i am only using cat7a for futureproofing and its double shielded (and the fact that i have 2000m of the stuff.....). i gues that is still ok to use??

It is the cost of plates and time to terminate CAT7 that is a royal PITA, for no useable benefit.

can i not just use cat5 or cat6 plates and termination for cost but leave it as cat 7a cable for futurepoofing and change any plates etc at a later date as required (if required)???

Not sure that Cat7 can be terminated on 5/6 plates.

Diameter of the cable is larger from memory.

Its very big cable and will not fit to a cat5 fitting. Its too stiff due to the shielding. If you look at the cat7 connectors they go straight into the back, cat5/6 bend through at least 90 deg.

Dupe...
