The weBoost 470103-A Connect 4G Cell Phone Booster Kit is designed to cover 1 to 2 rooms in your home or small office. You no longer have to suffer with poor cell signal reception, dropped calls, and slow 4G data. This kit supports multiple cellular devices simultaneously. This unique kit comes with both a dome and panel antenna. Choose the antenna that fits your environment for maximum flexibility. Only one of the antenna (dome or panel) can be used, not both at the same time.
NOTE: This kit contains a Bonus J-Pipe Mount, Lightning Surge Protector, and Dome Antenna for just a few dollars more.
There are several variables that effect the coverage area of any cell signal booster, outside cell signal strength, frequency used by the carrier, cell signal booster size, etc. On average this system will cover a couple of rooms. If you have any questions about coverage in your situation, contact Powerful Signal and we will be glad to perform the calculations and let you know the type of coverage you should expect.

weBoost Wide-Band Directional Antenna
This kit comes with the weBoost wide-band directional antenna (J-Pipe NOT included). The directional antenna should be mounted on the side of the building closest to the cell tower and the antenna should be pointing in the direction of the cell tower for best performance.
NOTE: BONUS J-Pipe mount shown with antenna is included with the kit.
weBoost Wide-Band Dome and Panel Antenna
Both a wide-band dome and panel antenna are included with the kit. Then can be set on the ceiling sheet rock in the attic pointing downward into the room below or the panel can be mounted on a wall pointing across the room. The panel antenna should not be pointed in the direction of the outside antenna. The system is designed to use either the dome or the panel, not both at the same time.
weBoost 470103 Connect 4G Installation Overview
The weBoost Connect 4G requires installation. Below is an overview of the installation process that should be followed. Overall the installation is not very complicated. Probably the most difficult part is mounting the antenna on the roof of the building. Remember, it is important not to power on the cell signal booster until everything is connected together.
Soft Install (recommended)
A soft install is recommended first to double check that the system will work in your environment. Basically a soft install is testing the equipment without physically mounting the hardware or drilling any holes. When hardware is mounted it can be scratched and may not be suitable for return if the equipment needs to be returned. Also when doing a soft install you find that antenna placement or equipment performance works better in different places. This will give you a chance to experiment with the antennas and determine the best place they should be installed. Get a friend to help hold antennas in place while you turn the system on. During a soft install hold the antenna in place and run the coax down the hall or through windows. We are testing antenna location and signal broadcast.
Outside Directional Antenna: The location of the exterior antenna is key to the system performance. It should be located towards the top of the roof to help eliminate anything that may block signal to it. The rooftop antenna should also be on the side of the house that is closest to your cell tower if possible. It may also be handy to position the outside antenna near an attic vent. Coax cable will need to be run from the outside antenna into the house and an attic vent is an easy way to do this. A hole may need to be drilled if no vents are available. The exterior directional antenna must be pointing away from the house and towards the cell tower for best performance. Directional antennas collect and broadcast signal in the direction they are pointing.
Cell Signal Booster: The weBoost Connect 4G cell signal booster needs to be in a weatherproof area. It also requires a wall plug power outlet for power. In most cases the cell signal booster can be placed in a dry attic space if power is available. Putting the booster in the attic eliminates drilling a hole for the coax. If putting the booster in the attic is not an option, then a closet or garage may work well. Coax will need to be run from the exterior antenna to the cell signal booster. Coax will also need to be run from the cell signal booster to the interior panel antenna.
Inside Antenna: The first thing to remember about the inside panel antenna is that it should not be pointed in the direction of the exterior omni antenna. This may cause oscillation which will in turn cause the cell signal booster to turn off. The inside dome or panel antenna can be mounted in a couple of different ways.
Attic Mount: If your cell signal booster is in the attic then the easiest place for the panel antenna is also in the attic. This eliminates drilling a hole in your ceiling. Simply place the panel antenna on the ceiling sheet rock or dropped ceiling tile pointing downwards into the room below. The signal will penetrate the sheet rock. This also gives you the ability to easily move the antenna around.
Closet Mount: You can also bring the coax cable down from the attic into a closet and mount the panel antenna in the closet on a wall. This keeps everything out of site. Point the panel in the direction you need cell signal remembering not to point the panel antenna in the direction of the exterior directional antenna.
Wall Mount: In some case, because of architecture, lack of attic, or other reasons, you may need to mount the panel antenna on an interior wall. At this point, pick a location that allow signal to be broadcast from the panel into the area needed. Coax can be hidden behind molding, furniture or other items.
Activate the System: When everything is in place and all connections are checked, power on the weBoost Connect 4G cell signal booster. The booster is self adjusting and does not require the end user to make any adjustments.
