Does the XTL1500 non W head dash radio use the same ribbon cable (HKN6192B) as the XTL5000 non W head?

Iirc, it is.
Kilgore: Smell that? You smell that?
Lance: What?
Kilgore: Napalm, son. Nothing in the world smells like that.
Kilgore: I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...

Thanks, what I think I was trying to ask is if the ribbon is the same with the MX and 05 heads, so I think you did IIRC
I forgot to ask if the bridges are the same???

The head bridge is attached the the 1500 head, you will need that part.

the 1500 uses a different flex cable from the 2500/5000 control head. Also a 1500 has the headbridge piece built into the head so basically there is no headbridge required. the 2500/5000 require the seperate headbridge for the o series.
