    Different "Mechanical" Whelen tones

    I had my Executor wired without a control head. Can’t remember if they were positive or negative triggers but I did run it through a SS2000 with touchscreen. Pretty sure positive because I had to use additional relays to negatively trigger the Sc1022 triggers when I had that. Good luck, Seth

    Arjent Question

    If all the modules are separately wired with three wires going to each modules vs all lightheads being mounted and soldered on a giant circuit board, you can rewrite it to not use the SIB. Since I can’t see the rest of the bar, unknown if it’s possible.

    1993 Caprice 9C1, Just retired Restoration thread

    Once upon a time, I used to drive a 1996 9C1 as a Paramedic chase car. Many good memories. Always wanted to restore one back to that time period. Maybe one day, but for now will look forward to seeing what you do with this one! Good Luck! Seth

    VW Golf Upfit Questions

    Foreign vehicles are always fun to work on. Good luck with it. Plan on twice as much time as you’d normally allocate as there never thought out into lighting needs for people. Looks like vertexs or cannons or something of the like in the mirrors. You’ll need to pull apart a mirror and figure it...

    Wanted UHF Minitor II pager

    Find a 450 monitor II on eBay and contact Gerry. He’s likely the best bet to get it setup. http://www.gcomradio.com/pager.html If you can’t find any on eBay. Maybe worth reaching out to Gerry anyway as he may still have some. Good luck, Seth

    Wire Gauge ?/Two RV26's/Garage Display

    By my calculations based on 2 100w lamps per light, you’re already over your 30a PS. I’d factor 22.5a per light which gives a little fudge factor room especially if a light had an issue and starts pulling more current. 8.3a per bulb. Motors are usually 1.5-2a in my experience. You maybe able...

    2017 F150 Cencom Core install. Where to mount?

    From my experience most pickups have very minimal options for installations. Some may have space behind the second seats on the back wall but under the second seats is consistently the most straight forward when doing an entire upfit. If ur worried about cargo space a cover for the bed maybe a...

    Whelen X-ecutor Manual wanted

    Copy. Pretty sure they’re 12v triggers but I always start with putting triggers to ground first, then 12v. Also if u blow it up MTNMAN maybe able to bring it back to life. He’s a wealth of knowledge and repair on sirens.

    Whelen X-ecutor Manual wanted

    Pretty sure you can wire directly. Check around YouTube for some videos. There was one at one time that everything was wired by switches. I had a xecutor-1 at one point that was run off switches. Seth

    Fire Station Alert Tone

    I don’t but it’s pretty easy to take a .wave or. MP3 and have it triggered to play on the PA system when the quik call is triggered. Just need a wav or MP3 player that has triggers.

    Thoughts on the Motorola SL3500e ?

    Not made for public safety use. Get a used XTS-5000, about the same price on the used market and has withstood the test of time. Seth

    Strobe Wire for LED Retrofit

    In my experience most has been 18g unless your getting knock off strobes. Pretty sure both Whelen and FS cable was 18g. Thanks, Seth
