The Titan 2 High Gain Preamplifier will amplify signals received by your antenna. This antenna amplifier is a high gain, low noise preamplifier used to allow weaker signals at the antenna to be amplified to a viewable strength, and is ideal for installations in which all broadcast towers are located at a distance of more than 80 miles.
The Titan 2 High Gain Preamplifier is a two part unit, an outdoor amplification unit which is mounted on the mast of your antenna system and an indoor unit which powers the outdoor amplification unit. The indoor unit is stationed indoors and connects to the outdoor unit via coaxial cable.
The Titan 2 High Gain Preamplifier is recommended for professional installers only. Due to the high gain output of this product, it can result in over amplification if not used in the appropriate scenario. Over amplification can cause issues with the television tuner’s ability to receive and display some or all channels.
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.
