    Unity spotlight advice

    This has to be an age-old problem but I just can’t seem to beat it. I have a maybe 2-year old Unity pillar post spotlight. How do I prevent it from freezing up in the winter preventing adjustment? I have not forced it and damaged the gears. Should I take the cap off at the end of the shaft and...

    Federal SS2000 output transistors.

    I have a SmartSiren that works perfectly except that it seems quieter than it should. I disconnected one 100w speaker and tested the AC voltage across the line - 11 VAC. Is it likely to be the output transistors? And if so, where can I buy new ones? Any help appreciated.

    Are spacers necessary on Inner Edge in Tahoe/Silverado?

    Are the Whelen-provided spacers necessary when installing an Inner Edge in the Chevy/Silverado. I used them but the bar isn't really level. It is lower in the center so I'm wondering if I should take the spacers out? I'm not sure what purpose they serve? Thank you

    Strobe question - science experiment

    Has anyone tried to feed one strobe tube with two power supply outlets? My thought is if the power supply puts out 15W per outlet (i.e., UPS690), and the strobe tube can handle 30+ watts, what would happen if we used two simultaneous outlets to the same tube - would it flash more brightly or...

    Wecan question

    Does the WeCan 6-button controller allow for control of anything not in the lightbar I.e., HLF, grille or deck lights, HAWs etc.? BLink used to have two non-serial outputs in the bar that could be used for such uses. I didn't see anything about it in the install guide. Thanks Bill

    I have two older single Talons without sync capability. I have two questions - 1. How do I determine whether they are ballast or passive? 2. How (if) can I use an external flasher to flash them. I tried setting them to steady and flashing the power leads but the LEDs were dim. Should I be...
