Hi,

I'm redoing/sorting out the telephone wiring in my house. I'm installing a Dynamix X-DSL master filter on the incoming line.
Do I need to wire the voice side of that filter to a telecom master jack with ring capacitor/resistor/surge protector etc?
The only phone in the house is a new one so it shouldnt need the external ringer cap but I'm not sure about the surge protector
or resistor, I'm imaging they should be built into the Dynamix master filter?
I'm hoping to be able to wire it directly to RJ45 sockets...

Thanks.

You can wire it directly to an RJ45 socket, using the phone (blue/white) wires from the xDSL splitter, extended from POE with Cat5E+ cable if needed.

overkill: You can wire it directly to an RJ45 socket, using the phone (blue/white) wires from the xDSL splitter, extended from POE with Cat5E+ cable if needed.


So the electronics in the Master socket ( capacitor etc) are no longer required?

Haven't been "needed" for years, since the 'two -wire' system became standard.

No they aren't. Modern land line phones have  the ringing circuitry built in. There's no need for the old master/secondary socket arrangement now.

If you have a dinosaur phone that needs it then buy a pabx master to convert from rj45 to BT and it will ring.
