Default JBL Hollywood Honey

Hello boys,

I'm posting pictures of an international install. I hope this will inspire all the installers in India to do cars that look like this. maybe someday....

BTW, I have taken Navin's approval in advance and he has agreed that this will be some nice eye candy for all you boys (happy KB?)



Note the complete lack of colour in the graphics. The vinyl work is exquisite as is the design.

A beautifully taken picture, enhancing the retro look of the car and adding colour with the coca cola signs.

The install upfront. The components are the GTi components and that thing in the middle of the midbasses is a phase plug. Ask Navin why you need it lol
Notice the attention to detail, the edge is a fine flim (like a cinema film reel) with JBL written on it repeatedly. G d is in the details.


The centre channel. Note the quality of the fibreglass work.

The Rear: Note how the 3 GTi woofers have been wired with Power Cable, twisted for effect and connected to Neutrik Speakons.
The 4 capacitors have also been mounted in an interesting manner.


Another interesting thing (since it is a showcar) is the use of inverted speaker baskets, with the magnet removed, to mount the rear speakers. Beautifully done.


And are you guys ready for the final surprise ???

Kya rey Sam... I thought... Hollywood Honey...hmm.. Sam must have put up pics of some hot JBL chick...

But this is better. Nice. I like. Especially for the detailing... The rear speakers in the inverted basket et al. But let me warn you, the 'Engine vengine types' that hang around here (pretending not to like ICE) are not going to be pleased, seeing ICE has invaded their territory... the mecca of all things engine vengine... the engine compartment.

BTW... Sam, whats the source/HU. CarPC?

what say a very nice and clean install. what u said sam is right here in india we have to go a long way to reach at this level... Here in india we get the best equipment and the installation stuff but again what we see is a simple installs only of mdf used not fiber...........and hey one more thing dont consider the installation money here who will buy 3 lakhs of equipment can easliy spend a lot on the install . And the way the stuff is install makes a hell lot of the difference both visually and audibly........

Woooooah!!

Awesome install pics Sam.

The quality of the install seems outta this world and the rear speaker mounting style is very original.

And as for the speakers in the engine compartment. Do they play "Best engine sounds" for added effects

See Gunbir?? Put a pair of speakers in the engine compartment and out come the engine gurus, all reactions blazing.

Hey Psycho, go back to your engine-vengine side of the forum.

You dont see us commenting when you have engines in the rear portion of the car do you?
