Default Harman Kardon CA 1500M

I was not able to click better photos earlier due to the HK being sealed. I did not want to open it before the install.
Here are better pics now.

Also see the amp guts. ( The cover was removed to invert the cover plate - Pics of the installed system will explain why)

On the 1st day of the install, the wiring was removed ( All of it)
The New Power cables and all were laid. and it rained , so was not able to capture the complete WIP.

The 2nd day of the install, i had to go away for sometime and there were reasons why i did not and(or) could not click the pics and some reasons due to which some pics could not be posted. Sorry.


Here's a pictorial representation of some of it.

Board used for fitting the cross overs, amps , DB. Here you can see the Mono has been inverted so that on the top are the RCAs (for both amps and power cables and inputs at the bottom) Due to this very reason the amp's cover was reversed ( to make it look as if installed straight and not inverted)

So the Final Install Pics.
I really liked the work. Smokin is a great person to get your install from. Full Marks from my side. Everything was done properly and time was given.
Though he had other works too, he constantly was helping to save up the time on the install.

I had earlier a deadline till Wednesday as my result had to come on Thursday. But then i was told that it would come on wednesday and had to be there to collect it. So i told him to finish it by tuesday. And the rain also played spoil sport. But still the work was finished. The tuning et all could not be completed but the system was up and running.

And not to forget the tweeter pods which you can see below in the pics. Great work. Really liked it. Looks nothing less than stock and there's no stock grille to cover / mask the sound. Great thinking. Great execution.

These costed me 2000 bucks and are really great.

Thanks a tonne smokin for all the help you have provided. I owe you one.


Will let the pics do rest of the talking.

Custom Tweeter Pods. ( They appear to be firing in odd directions but are to my preference and in the way the stock ones are positioned - Angled a bit inside and at my ear level.)
