We’ve snapped many pictures of the Harman Kardon Invoke speaker, its parts, and packaging. Specifically, these come from the various posts we wrote about this Cortana enabled device. We’ve put these photos together here in one post for easy viewing. Further, we’ll add more as we add them to new HK Invoke speaker posts. Often, it just takes seeing some photos to learn how to perform common tasks with these speakers. Hope these help.
Harman Kardon Invoke Speaker Package
First, we have the original box, showing pics of the speaker on the outside.
Second, showing the protective plastic.
Third, the next shot shows the box with the protective plastic off.
Then, we have the securing tape circles on two sides of the outer box, that hold it closed.
And then, we remove the outer box, top part.
The Stuff Inside the HK Box
Further, we have our first look at the speaker inside here.
Then, we removed the speaker from the holder. Showing the empty pedestal here.
Moreover, we found that the top of the pedestal lifts out, revealing another, little box underneath.
Then, we remove the inner box, that holds the instructions and power adapter.
Next, we opened that little inner box to find a second plastic bag within.
And then. ahhhh. Here’s the power adapter, also encased in a plastic bag.
Next, we spread the entire box contents out on our living room floor.
