Older mcdermotts had a problems with the pods coming loose. simply tighten the nut by popping the plastic cover off below the pod and tighten. As for wiring all the bulbs are grounded to the lightbar frame. any wires coming from the arms put positive to and ground the bar.

More than 2 light modules per arm is overkill, all that's needed for an effective, coherent warning signal is 4 lights facing front and rear

I say 3 per arm which the low end has plus the built-in ta. The nice thing is they have side protection in both positions.

Denver, CO PD uses a version of a riser bar. Used to be made by Super Vac but not able to find any info. In fairness, have not dug deep. I bought an old one at auction. It had an all light MX7000 and a Whelen TA mounted to it with the factory 6 inch oval TA built on the riser.
This pic is at Denver International Airport.

Gentlemen, Visited the McDermott factory in Brooklyn recently. They have dozens of the old riser bars stacked up on shelves. When called for he restores them to original configuration and sells them for about $1800. He also makes the LED riser bars currently used by FDNY.
