Channel Master's 3414 is a compact, versatile RF distribution amplifier designed for indoor use with coaxial cables. It lets you distribute amplified antenna or cable TV signals to as many as four TVs without the signal degradation caused by splitters.

The 3414 can improve reception whether the problem is weak signal strength at your antenna, or loss of signal quality due to a long cable run. Unlike the inexpensive boosters you find in hardware stores, the 3414 is a "bi-directional" design that provides a return signal path for use with a cable box or cable modem (return signal is not amplified). The included AC power supply connects to the 3414 via a short length of coax cable, which is also included.

Product Highlights:

  • compatible with antenna and cable TV signals
  • cable company approved for digital cable, HDTV, and high-speed Internet
  • bi-directional for digital services
  • amplifier gain: 8 dB
  • operating frequency range: 54-1002 MHz
  • return path frequency range: 5-42 MHz (for cable modem applications)

  • noise: 2.7 dB
  • six F-type coaxial connectors (1 input, 4 output, 1 power)
  • included AC power supply provides power to amplifier via coaxial cable connection (cable included)
  • 6000-volt surge protection
  • weather-sealed housing resists corrosion
  • 4-7/16"W x 1-1/4"H x 4-5/16"D
  • warranty: 1 year

Didn't solve problem

Written By BobM, Texas on Friday, September 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have four TVs fed by one antenna. Three work fine, but the fourth, the oldest and farthest, has trouble with a few channels, including one of our favorites. I tried an amplifier at the TV end, which didn't give much better reception. So I installed the Channel Master in place of the splitter. It installed neatly, and added about thirty mote channels after scanning. Unfortunately, it didn't improve the troublesome channels at all. I'm disappointed. Alternatives now are expensive.

Pros: Compact and solid.

Cons: If mounted outside, providing power is complicated.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After installing my Mohu antenna and testing on a single TV I was pleased with picking up 61 channels in my location. Using the channel master disto amplifier I now have those 61 channels on 4 separate TV's. Time to cut the cable back to just Internet.

Pros: Easy install. Rated for indoor and outdoor (installed in crawl space)

Cons: None at this point.

Seems to work fine

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

set up channel master antenna with rotor, amp, preamp & dvr...get 40 channels on chimney mount, 1 story house...old neighborhood with many large trees obstructing signal. Pixelation during bad weather & hard to zero in northern stations due to curvature of the earth, southern stations are more clear. Can zero in stations with the remote that goes with the rotor box. DVR has all the features of a cable/satellite dvr, could have an extra tuner that only watches channels but does not record. If you record 2 shows at the same time you can't watch a third, 1tb storage & can connect external drives only if not recording.

Pros: stronger signal

Cons: pixelation in bad weather

Amp Splitter

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product. I've had this amp for about a month now and what a difference. I had 1 station that was continuously dropping out and thanks to this product, that issue is a thing of the past. I've been able to eliminate all my splitters, ended up with twice the free over the air channels and the signal is perfect.

Pros: Quick & easy to install Heavy duty construction

Cons: None

Works as advertised. The signal on cable that's been split amplified to where it was clear as a bell. Signal was static prone prior to installation.

Pros: works great

Cons: Can interfere with cable box dvr if placed on port 1.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have used Channel Master products in the past because of their quality and it's refreshing to see that they have not changed. The installation was very easy and the amplifier works perfect. I know there are many distribution amps on the market today but you won't go wrong with Channel Master.

Pros: Easy installation, comes with everything needed for quick set up, solid construction

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Placed it in the "home run" box in my game room so I could split my antenna signal to several rooms (most importantly my garage) because in did not want to pay extra for another box to go in the garage. All connected tv's added 15-20 channels over using standard splitter. LOVE the fact that power is run through coax so you can choose any length you need. Thinking seriously about adding another (non-splitter type) right at the antenna because Im sure that would improve the signal much more since it amplifies a stronger signal. The fact that you can run power through existing coax cables is genius because I can simply plug another up in the same place and use this coax to run power up to the antenna. Great product. Far cheaper than the ripoff of cable....

Pros: Ease of use smart power supply

Cons: Doesn't make dinner

The jury is still out

Written By KMinWhiteLake, White Lake, MI on Saturday, July 13, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this distribution amp to resolve a problem with intermittent drop-outs. The improvement was very slight if at all. With a directional, high-gain antenna, a rotor, a pre-amplifier and this distribution amplifier, drop-outs should be non-existant. I don't know if I've got another problem or this distribution amp is not functioning correctly. An email to Channel Master support went unanswered.

Pros: Looks pretty.

Cons: Doesn't seem to do much.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Have this connected in my attic with a Channel Master 3010. Connected all the previous owner's direct tv cables to the signal amplifier and now I have free HDTV in multiple locations throughout the house. All without a cable/satellite bill.

Pros: None

Cons: Didn't come with an electrician to run a outlet in my attic. :) JK...I knew I would have to get this done when I bought it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent product! We have some long cable tv runs resulting in some irritating snow. This amplified splitter is just what we were looking for and cleared our tv pictures beautifully! Easy hook-up and instant success! Also, kudos to Crutchfield for excellent service! The product was out-of-stock for some time. The Crutchfield team let me know as soon as it was available, I ordered it and it arrived in about 3 days, well packaged and in perfect condition. Worth waiting for! Highly recommend! Thank you!?

Pros: Quality, well made product. Easy installation. Works very well for us!

Cons: None

Channel Master 3414 4 output RF distribution amplifier

Written By Don, Knightdale, NC on Friday, March 09, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed an amplifier to feed my antenna to 4 different receivers. This was the answer and it worked with no signal over loading or any kind of enterference.

Pros: Great amplifier with four outputs eliminating the need for a splitter. It gives a signal boost needed for longer cable runs.

Cons: None

Simple, works great

Written By Scott, Cleveland, OH on Sunday, January 22, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a very simple, well constructed device. If you use it for its intended purpose, the amp functions perfectly. It eliminated the noise, visible lines, and distortion of other low quality amps in my four TV home setup. This is a perfect amp for home or small business use. My setup was analog only, so I can't comment on digital signals, pass-through, etc.

Pros: Small, solid build, clean and quiet power

Cons: None

I have a two channel unit like this one. It has been super on boosting signal from 50 miles away. We needed to add two more tvs so we purchased a 4 output unit. Great amplifier.

Works like a champ!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

installed at distribution box to boost signal from Channel Master 4228 antennae. Replaced passive splitter with this, increased the number of channels visible from 23 to 43, with very strong signal from stations 40 miles away...

It was easier to amplify at my distribution box than at the antennae which is why I bought this rather than other amplifiers.

Thank you Crutchfield for all your help. Your price and fast shiping was great.

Antenna Signal Amplifier A+ Again

Written By David, Cedarville, NJ on Saturday, March 26, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Upgrading from the channel master 3410 to the channel master 3414 was another great choice. We now have two HDTV's plus our older TV. I still get great reception. Plus we added a few more stations. Now we have a total of 33 channels. We can view different channels on all the TV's, at the same time and not lose any signal strength. Thanks Again Crutchfield for a great product.
