    Question on Ion DUOs and ULF44

    You'll probably have to use a relay to cut power to the red trigger wire when you provide steady power to the white trigger wire with your external switch. Like this

    Proper Wire Routing Methods

    Another option is the headliner. Pull off the door weatherstripping and you should be able to pull down the edge of the headliner. Many times there is a large amount of room there on the edge of the headliner where it meets the gasket without having to remove anything else. I just did work on a...

    Fire Station Alert Tone

    I'm upgrading the alert system at my fire station. We decode quick call II tones using a CDM1250. The external alarm wire output sets off the house bells and lights when we get a call. One of the nearby departments has a unique alert tone that I want to replicate. I believe it is a sound that...

    HHS3200 config question

    It's a real PITA. Look at the stock config and copy how the Wail, Yelp, and T3 buttons are configured as they should have override from the factory.

    Wanted Rear Window LED Explorer PIU CHMSL

    The Ions are the factory Ford brackets & shrouds. The LINZ6s below were added by the upfitter. In post #14 you can very clearly see they are Ions.

    Wanted 2013 Ford PIU Headlight and Taillight Flasher

    I've used the Brookings flasher a few times. Pretty slick solution but the flash patterns are crappy.

    Wanted Rear Window LED Explorer PIU CHMSL

    They were Ions with custom Ford brackets and shrouds. You can get the parts from Ford but it's pricy. I would recommend two Spitfire Ions. You should be able to rewire the Spitfire Ions for sync if you make your own wiring harness.

    Wanted 2013 Ford PIU Headlight and Taillight Flasher

    Pretty sure it was only 16-19 that could use the Whelen plug in flasher. 15 and older have the projector headlights with shutters which require the Axixtech Brookings flasher to hold the shutters open and then flash the bulbs.

    Are they not FedSig Vipers? Even if it's not a Viper it's probably FedSig something.

    Whelen Linz 6 Leaking

    The Mini T-Ions should work with the Outer Edge flasher on steady burn right?

    Whelen Linz 6 Leaking

    Anybody swap their LINZ6 outer edge to the mini T-Ions because of the water issues? Whelen makes a bracket to replace a LINZ6 with a mini T-Ion.

    2016 Ford PIU spotlight power issues.

    There should be a connector/wire mounted to the inside of the metal A pillar under the trim. The wire from the spotlight connects there although most of the time the tech/upfitter adds another connector so the handle can be removed and the wire disconnected without removing the trim. I would...

    Noco vehicle chargers

    Are those batteries connected through an isolator or simply in parallel? If there's no isolator you don't need a dual charger.

    Noco vehicle chargers

    Kussmaul is pretty much the gold standard for emergency vehicles. The only other chargers I might go with are Vanner or maybe Blue Sea (more geared towards marine?) Kussmaul has the new auto ejects with the display built in which seems pretty slick.

    Noco vehicle chargers

    Seems like a cheap (not in a good way) alternative. Can only charge at 10A max which seems low for an emergency vehicle. Does not seem to support an external display or have a battery saver for charging flashlights/portable radios etc..

    Question on use of relays

    Moto CDM1550 backlights not working

    One of the buttons can be assigned to "Backlight Control". I would check in the programming and make sure one of the buttons is programmed as such and the backlight isn't set to "off". Backlight level can be set at: Radio Configuration -> Lights/LEDs tab -> Mobile Backlight Intensity dropdown

    Siren Troubleshooting

    So finally found time to troubleshoot this further. I am getting about 19 volts right at the amplifier and slightly less than that at the speaker. Also tried a second new Feniex speaker connected right to the amplifier and it still seems quiet. All signs point towards a bad amplifier it seems.

    Siren Troubleshooting

    I have a Carson SC-1012 wired to a Feniex 100W speaker. Just this week, it started to sound quiet. Took everything apart, made sure the connections are all good, but still not fixed. I have good continuity through the speaker and my meter reads 10.2 Ohms through the speaker. I disconnected both...
