An extension housing (C) for a cable TV multi-tap device is made up of extension tubes (A) in coaxially aligned relation to one another for the purpose of providing wider bandwidth subscriber multi-taps with a longer extension coaxial connector to span the distance between a TV coaxial cable ends without affecting performance. An RF signal connector (H) is inserted in each tube having a dielectric insulator (D) at one end, an elongated conductor (

15

) having a bore (

17

) extending through its greater length and longitudinally split segments (

14

) surrounding the bore for insertion of a conductor pin (

10

) extending from a cable connector at the end of the extension tube and inserted through the dialectric insulator into the bore and a second conductor pin (

16

) extending from the elongated conductor into contact with a face plate connector (G) in the housing. In one form of invention the second conductor pin extends through a second dielectric insulator (E) into contact with the face place connector. In another form of invention, a printed circuit board (

50

) is interposed between the second conductor pin (

10

′) and the connector (H′) to establish a predetermined impedance in the RF signal connector.
