    Check the internal 20A fuse and I replied to your message.

    Is eLightbars dying out?

    As far as I can tell, there isn't an actual error, but if you "try again" you get duplicate posts.

    Federal Signal PA300 Mods

    Based on the the available documentation and my experience, the FDNY PA300 is a 200W version, with variable resistor R57 set for a higher pitch range (1,800 Hz peak instead of 1,575 Hz) and no connection at the Hi-Lo position of the function switch. That's all, folks!

    What makes you think they're "better?"
  5. MtnMan


    The actual current draw of your equipment is 6 A each for the front and rear bars and 0.75 A for each T3, so your total will be around 18 to 20 A. Install a 30 A main fuse (not circuit breaker) close to the battery and run a 10 gauge feed to the fuse block or controller.

    Are Two Speakers Better than One?

    Another way to think about it is that a 6 dB increase produces double the acoustic range (assuming an unobstructed path). E.g., a 200 W siren 200 ft away produces the same sound level as a 100 W siren at 100 ft. Of course, driver attention and reaction and are still the limiting factors in...

    Vintage NYPD Signal Stat Question

    I wonder... what their logic was in using an extension base for the beacon, and then mounting the speaker off-center, blocking the passenger side flasher?

    No. Don't look. Cannot be unseen. :oops:

    Is eLightbars dying out?

    I enjoy this community of good people and their expertise, but traffic has slowed to the point that I visit less often. Unfortunately, I think the loss of archive files hurt, and it seems like there's been an increase in transient members who drop in to ask a question or reply to an ad and then...

    Federal SS2000 output transistors.

    The output voltage should be 32 VAC, measured across the blue and brown speaker wires. Try checking it again with both speakers disconnected. It might be a bad output transistor, but they usually fail with a short or open. It would be an unusual failure mode to produce low output. Replacement...

    Galls Traffic Backer - Not for Ford Use?

    I don’t know where you got that idea. According to the article, the officer engaged drive while mistakenly pressing the accelerator, an error that would have been prevented by a working park interlock.

    Speaker popping issue with Whelen 295HFSB1

    A short in the speaker would be my first guess. Are the diagnostic indicators are showing anything? Does the siren amp produce any sound with the speaker disconnected?

    Dietz 9-50 Vs. 9-51 Vs. Grote

    I have a new 64011 that I'll probably never use. Msg me if you're interested.

    Will, if I get to play with it and get it running, that;s a win-win. PM replied.
