Extend the headphone head support arc to its maximum size and then take the length of wire from one speaker to other over the arc plus 3 or 4 inches longer.them cut the wire using scissors.

The wire on the other speaker on which you are going to fix the BTrecever can be cut a few inches from the speaker

Step 4: Taking Wire Through the Head Support Arc

1. Make a small thin hole on both the speaker casing using a small heated screw driver and pull the wire out through it

2. The headphone should be extended to its maximum size before sticking the wires to the arc using superglue.

3. The other end of the wire is taken into the other speaker case.

Step 5: Connecting the Female Audio Jack

1. A small hole is made on the speaker case on which you are planning to fix the BT receiver using a soldering iron.

2. The 4 wires are pulled out and connected to the jack according the circuit provided ( note: the golden wires are usually the negative connection)

3. The female jack is fixed to the casing using superglue .( A tictac candy box cover can be used as spacer if required)

Step 6: Making a Mini Aux Pin

1. Two 3 mm male audio pins are first glued to each other as seen in the pics.

2. The wiring is done (ground to ground, left to left and right to right terminals).

3. M-seal or something similar is used to seal the connections .

4. Wait until it hardens completely.

Step 7: Final Setting
