Here is my contribution to the fake jbl wiring thread. Saw this as recently as a week back in some autoshop called konark in koramangala in bangalore. They even had fake monster RCA.

sorry for the bad quality of image.(Taken from mobile cam)

This has been the only original JBL Amplifier wiring kit. Unfortunately this was discontinued last year, so except for sporadic stocks, there are no original JBL wiring kits available. Currently.

Fortunately I am happy to announce that this situation will be remedied in the near future. There will be a new JBL Amplifier Wiring Kit by November 2008.
I will keep you posted along with pictures and more so you can identify the real mcoy.

Should not JBL have one set for subwoofers (monoblock amp + 1 pair RCA) and one set for their 4 ch amps (with 2 sets of RCA).

They should. But for various reasons that I cannot relate, the answer is no. For now.

The new wiring kit will have the same packing list as the old one. And yes, this means only 1 pair of RCAs.

Not much sometimes, when the authorized dealers themselves are pushing the exact same fake kits as original ones and ready to give a bill for them also.

There are no exact same fake kits. The fake kits are actually very poor looking and in little canvas toilet kits with zips, lol.

Not all dealers are alike, so I'll reserve my comments.

SS- I do see your point. But you get everything fake.

You get fake Sony MP3 players for 900 rupees in the electronics market. You get Pioneer speakers made in Delhi. What can you do?

This is the reason why we have forums and share information, so the educated buyer can further educate himself on the truth. The uneducated buyer can only trust his local dealer to tell him the truth. You are lucky to have this forum, isn't it?
