Safety Message to Installers of Siren Speakers
People’s lives depend on your proper installation and servicing of Federal Signal products. It is important to
read and follow all instructions shipped with this product and the original product. In addition, listed below
are some other important safety instructions and precautions you should follow:
Before Installation
Qualifications
• To properly install an electronic siren, you must have a good understanding of automotive electrical
procedures and systems, along with proficiency in the installation and service of safety warning
equipment. Always refer to the vehicle’s service manuals when installing equipment on a vehicle.
Sound Hazards
• Your hearing and the hearing of others, in or close to your emergency vehicle, could be damaged
by loud sounds. This can occur from short exposures to very loud sounds, or from longer exposures
to moderately loud sounds. For hearing conservation guidance, refer to federal, state, or local
recommendations. OSHA Standard 1910.95 offers guidance on “Permissible Noise Exposure.”
•
All effective sirens and horns produce loud sounds (120 dB) that may cause permanent hearing loss.
Always minimize your exposure to siren sound and wear hearing protection. Do not sound the siren
indoors or in enclosed areas where you and others will be exposed to the sound.
•
Federal Signal siren amplifiers and speakers are designed to work together as a system. Combining
a siren and speaker from different manufacturers may reduce the warning effectiveness of the siren
system and may damage the components. You should verify or test your combination to make sure the
system works together properly and meets federal, state, and local standards or guidelines.
During Installation
•
DO NOT get metal shavings inside the product. Metal shavings in the product can cause the system
to fail. If drilling must be done near the unit, place an ESD-approved cover over the unit to prevent
metal shavings from entering the unit. Inspect the unit after mounting to be sure there are no shavings
present in or near the unit.
•
DO NOT connect this system to the vehicle battery until ALL other electrical connections are
made, mounting of all components is complete, and you have verified that no shorts exist. If wiring
is shorted to the vehicle frame, high current conductors can cause hazardous sparks resulting in
electrical fires or flying molten metal.
•
Be sure the siren amplifier and speaker(s) in your installation have compatible wattage ratings.
•
In order for the electronic siren to function properly, the ground connection must be made to the
NEGATIVE battery terminal.
•
Sound output will be severely reduced if any objects are in front of the speaker. If maximum sound
output is required for your application, ensure that the front of the speaker is clear of any obstructions.
Installation Instructions for 2011 and Newer Dodge Charger
•
Install the speaker(s) as far forward on the vehicle as possible, in a location which provides maximum
signaling effectiveness and minimizes the sound reaching the vehicle’s occupants. Refer to the
National Institute of Justice guide 500-00 for further information.
•
Mounting the speakers behind the grille will reduce the sound output and warning effectiveness of the
siren system. Before mounting speakers behind the grille, make sure the vehicle operators are trained
and understand that this type of installation is less effective for warning others.
•
Sound propagation and warning effectiveness will be severely reduced if the speaker is not facing
forward. Carefully follow the installation instructions and always install the speaker with the projector
facing forward.
•
DO NOT install the speaker(s) or route the speaker wires where they may interfere with the operation
of airbag sensors.
•
Installation of two speakers requires that you wire the speakers in phase.
•
Never attempt to install aftermarket equipment, which connects to the vehicle wiring, without
reviewing a vehicle wiring diagram, which is available from the vehicle manufacturer. Insure that
your installation will not affect vehicle operation and safety functions or circuits. Always check
vehicle for proper operation after installation.
•
DO NOT install equipment or route wiring or cord in the deployment path of an airbag.
•
If a vehicle seat is removed, verify with the vehicle manufacturer if the seat needs to be recalibrated
for proper airbag deployment.
•
Locate the control head so the vehicle, controls, and microphone can be operated safely.
•
When drilling into a vehicle structure, be sure that both sides of the surface are clear of anything that
could be damaged.
After Installation
• After installation, test the siren system and light system to ensure that it is operating properly.
•
Test all vehicle functions, including horn operation, vehicle safety functions and vehicle light systems,
to ensure proper operation. Ensure that installation has not affected vehicle operation or changed any
vehicle safety function or circuit.
•
After testing is complete, provide a copy of these instructions to the instructional staff and all
operating personnel.
•
File these instructions in a safe place and refer to them when maintaining and/or reinstalling the
product.
Failure to follow all safety precautions and instructions may result in property damage, serious injury, or death.

Safety Message to Operators of Federal Signal Electronic Sirens and Light/
Sound Systems
The lives of people depend on your safe operation of Federal products. It is important to read and follow all
instructions shipped with the products. In addition, listed below are some other important safety instructions
and precautions you should follow:
Qualifications
• To properly use an electronic siren and speaker(s), you must have a good understanding of general
vehicle operation, a high proficiency in the use of safety warning equipment, and thorough knowledge
of state and federal UNIFORM TRAFFIC CODES.
Sound Hazards
• Your hearing and the hearing of others, in or close to your emergency vehicle, could be damaged
by loud sounds. This can occur from short exposures to very loud sounds, or from longer exposures
to moderately loud sounds. For hearing conservation guidance, refer to federal, state, or local
recommendations. OSHA Standard 1910.95 offers guidance on “Permissible Noise Exposure.”
•
All effective sirens and horns produce loud sounds (120 dB) that may cause permanent hearing loss.
Always minimize your exposure to siren sound, roll up your windows and wear hearing protection.
Do not sound the siren indoors or in enclosed areas where you and others will be exposed to the
sound. Only use the siren for emergency response situations.
Sound Limitations
• Before using the vehicle, check to see if the siren speakers are concealed from view. If the siren
speaker is not in clear view on the front of the vehicle, use extra caution when operating the vehicle.
A concealed siren speaker installation is less effective at warning others.
•
Maximum sound output will be severely reduced if any objects are in front of the speaker. If your
installation has obstructions in front of the speaker, drive even more cautiously.
•
Frequently inspect the speaker to ensure that it is clear of any obstruction, such as mud or snow,
which will reduce maximum sound output.
Signaling Limitations
• Be aware that the use of your visual and audible signaling devices does not give you the right to force
your way through traffic. Your emergency lights, siren, and actions are REQUESTING the right-of-way.
•
Although your warning system is operating properly, it may not alert everyone. People may not hear,
see, or heed your warning signal. You must recognize this fact and continue driving cautiously.
•
Situations may occur which obstruct your warning signal when natural or man-made objects are
between your vehicle and others. This can also occur when you raise your hood or trunk lid. If these
situations occur, be especially careful.
Driving Limitations
• At the start of your shift, you should ensure that the light/sound system is securely attached to the
vehicle and operating properly.

Installation Instructions for 2011 and Newer Dodge Charger
•
If the unique combination of emergency vehicle equipment installed in your vehicle has resulted in
the siren controls being installed in a position that does not allow you to operate them by touch only,
OPERATE CONTROLS ONLY WHILE YOUR VEHICLE IS STOPPED.
•
If driving conditions require your full attention, you should avoid operating the siren controls while
the vehicle is in motion.
Continuing Education
• File these instructions in a safe place and refer to them periodically. Give a copy of these instructions
to new recruits and trainees.
Failure to follow these safety precautions may result in property damage, serious injury, or death.
Testing the Installation
SOUND HAZARD
All effective sirens and horns produce loud sounds (120 dB) that may cause
permanent hearing loss. Always minimize your exposure to the sound of the siren
and horn, and wear hearing protection. Do not sound the siren or horn indoors or in
enclosed areas where you and others will be exposed to the sound.
LIGHT HAZARD
To be an effective warning device, an emergency warning system produces bright
light that can be hazardous to your eyesight when viewed at close range. Do not
stare directly into the lights at close range or permanent damage to your eyesight
may occur.
After the installation, test the emergency warning system to ensure that it is operating properly. Also test all
vehicle functions, including horn operation, vehicle safety functions, and vehicle lighting systems to ensure
proper operation. Ensure that the installation has not affected the vehicle operation or changed any vehicle
safety functions or circuits. After testing is complete, provide a copy of these instructions to the instructional
staff and all operating personnel.
Do not test the sound and light system of the vehicle while driving. Operating the vehicle warning systems
may pose a hazard to the operator and other drivers if the systems do not function as expected. Test the
vehicle only in a controlled environment.
