Another of a series for all of the popular radar detector models.
Have fun posting your observations and comments regarding what you see!
The Escort Passport 9500i -- FCC ID QKL95M4
Below is a top side view of the internals:
The GPS receiver chip is the large shiny square chip. The entire GPS board is mounted above the main board on a large black plastic standoff.
Below is a bottom side view of the internals:
Note that this is the bottom side view and that the radar horn is mounted upside down! Bel and Escort don't do this very often, yet for the 9500i this provides a significant advantage. The upside down mounted horn gives it a strong downward flare which allows the 9500i to more easily pick up radar signals bouncing off of your vehicle's car hood. Also note that the PUI speaker features a circuit board plug at the end of its wire leads, rather than simply soldering the speaker leads to terminals on the circuit board. This makes the speaker very easy to replace if it blows due to extreme heat.
