GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The SS730 Remote Siren Amplifier is a premium 200W unit designed for dual
100W speaker use. It comes standard with a remote control head and a noisecancelling microphone for PA use.
The primary operating modes are Phaser, Yelp, Wail, Hands Free, Manual,
Alert, and Radio. A Noise Cancelling PA Override and push-button Horn Override
are available in all modes. A manual push-button is provided for push-on/push-off
tone toggle operation in the Phaser, Yelp, and Wail modes. It also allows manual
siren control in the Manual, Alert or Hands Free modes. The Phaser function can
be optionally replaced by Two-Tone, or disabled entirely, with program jumpers.
Another feature allows cycling through Wail, Yelp, Phaser and Standby by
-1-
providing a signal to the horn ring auxiliary wire when the function switch is in
the Hands Free (HF) position. A Park Kill option is provided for connection to a
door switch, etc. to disable the siren when exiting the vehicle. The PA volume
control is provided on the front panel of the control head, while the Radio volume
is on the amplifier box. The front panel is backlighted with LED’s for night
visibility. This compact unit utilizes short circuit, high voltage, low voltage, and
reverse polarity protection systems for maximum service life.
The SS730 unit is designed to allow maximum versatility in mounting. The
control head is remote from the siren amplifier box creating a compact user
interface plate that can be flush mounted into the dashboard. The amplifier box
can then be mounted remotely in the trunk, under the dashboard, under the seat,
or wherever convenient.
The siren amplifier has been designed with several protection features to
provide exc eptional field service. Excessively high or low voltage detection will
disable the siren output to protect both the amplifier and the speaker. Fused inputs
provide safety against reverse polarity. Speaker diagnostics provides user
feedback as well as shutdown protection if the speaker output becomes either
electrically open or shorted. CAUTION: These protection features will not guard
against overloading the outputs.
The SS730 unit is available in the following different versions:
SS730
SS730-DM
SS730-X
SS730-TEC
Standard version w/ microphone mounted to the faceplate.

INSTALLER-SELECTABLE OPTIONS
The SS730 has several options that can be selected during installation. Jumpers
on the back of the control head, as well as on the printed circuit board inside the
amplifier case, allow the installer to select these various options. These options
should be set before installation of the unit.
Amplifier Cover Removal
CAUTION: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN SCREWS!
Remove the four protruding Philips head screws located on the top of the
amplifier unit, and the four flush Philips head screws on the sides of the amplifier
unit. DO NOT REMOVE THE FOUR RECESSED SCREWS ON THE
UNDERSIDE OF THE AMPLIFIER! Lift the top cover upwards. This cover can
be removed completely from the amplifier unit.
Auxiliary Input Polarity
The auxiliary input is normally activated by applying a positive voltage to the
wire. If, instead, you would like to activate the auxiliary input by connecting it to
ground (negative), move the “AUX” option jumper from the “Pos. Switching” pins
to the “Neg. Switching” pins in the amplifier unit. (See Amplifier diagram below).
The wiring diagram on page 10 shows two connection examples.
-3-
Park Kill Input Polarity
The Park Kill (Cutout) Input turns off any siren tone output when activated,
and remains off until a control is activated or changed. The wiring diagram on
page 11 shows two connection examples.
The park kill input is normally activated by connecting to positive. To
activate by connecting to ground (negative), move the “PKILL” option jumper
from the “Pos. Switching” pins to the “Neg. Switching” pins in the amplifier
unit. (See Amplifier diagram below).
Phaser Disable
The Phaser function can be completely disabled by removing the second option
jumper from the back of the control head. This will also disable the
Two-Tone function used when the manual button is pressed while the mode switch
is in the Phaser position. (See diagram below).
(Back of Control Head)
-4-
Auxiliary Input Function
The Auxiliary Input allows activation by an external source of either the Horn or
the Manual push-button functions when the rotary selector switch is in the Manual,
Alert, or Hands Free (HF) position. This input is usually wired into the vehicle horn
switch. The wiring diagram on page 10 shows two connection examples. NOTE:
Permanent disconnection of the vehicle horn is NOT recommended.
The siren is factory shipped with the auxiliary input option defaulted as the Horn
function. To utilize the auxiliary input as the Manual function instead of the Horn
function, remove the third option jumper from the back of the control head. (See
diagram BELOW).

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
AMPLIFIER
Electrical power connections to the amplifier are made using a removable
connector located on the back of the amplifier case. Communication between the
control head and the amplifier are made via a special communication cable.
CAUTION: Please note that this cable IS NOT a standard telephone cord and
CANNOT be replaced with one. You should make all electrical connections to
the power connector before installing the connector on the unit. If the unit needs
service, both the communication cable and the power connector can be easily
removed without unwiring the connector.
The power supply of the unit must be capable of delivering peak currents up to
50 amps for adequate short circuit protection and reliable operation. The
preferred source is directly at the vehicle battery. The unit is internally fused. A
wiring diagram on the next page shows detail of how to wire the power connector
on the amplifier to the vehicle. The communication cable has both ends identical,
and should have one end plugged into the amplifier (RJ11 port) and the other end
plugged into the control head (RJ11 port).

Wire Size and Termination
The wiring diagram on the next page shows the minimum wire size used for
each connection, along with recommended lead color. Please use the following
guidelines when wiring your siren:
• If the wire is longer than 10 ft. use the next larger wire size. Use only high quality
crimp connectors.
• Make sure all connections are tight.
• Route the wiring to prevent wear, overheating and/or interference with air bag
deployment.
• Use grommets and sealant when passing through compartment walls.
• Minimize the number of splices to reduce voltage drop.
• Ground connections should only be made to substantial chassis components, preferably
directly to the negative of the vehicle battery.
• Install and check all wiring before connection to vehicle battery.
Wiring Connections:
BLACK LEADS: You MUST connect BOTH black wires when using two 100W driver
speakers. Connect to the negative of the battery, or to a good chassis
ground. Be sure to use minimum size #14 AWG wire.
RED LEADS:
You MUST connect BOTH red wires when using two 100W driver
speakers. Connect to the positive of the battery, or to a high current power
buss. A power relay may also be used. Be sure to use minimum size #14
AWG wire.
BROWN LEADS: Connect one lead to each terminal or lead of the speaker. Be sure to use
minimum size #14 AWG wire. If connecting a second speaker in
parallel, you must observe the polarity of the speakers (phasing). Be
sure that the positive terminals of both speakers are connected together
to the same brown wire from the siren. In which case, the negative
terminals of both speakers would also be connected together to the other
brown wire from the siren.
Optional Connections:
BLUE LEADS: Use for radio repeat. Connect one blue lead to each terminal of the radio
speaker or output connector of the radio. Most radio outputs are isolated, in
which polarity would not be important. Radios with polarity sensitive
outputs should be connected w/ the blue wire from pin 6 to the positive radio
output, and the blue wire from pin 3 to the negative radio output. Use #18
AWG wire.
GREEN LEAD: Use for remote (Aux.) Manual control. Connect to horn ring circuit or
remote switch. Circuit may be positive or negative with proper jumper
selection. See INSTALLER-SELECTABLE OPTIONS section (page 3) for
jumper details. NOTE: Cut lead short if not used & insulate w/ electrical
tape.
WHITE LEAD: Used for Park Kill (Cut-off). Connect to dome light or added door switch.
Circuit may be positive or negative with proper jumper selection. See
INSTALLER-SELECTABLE OPTION section (page 4) for jumper details.
NOTE: Be sure to cut lead short if not used and insulate with electrical tape.
Testing - Test all siren functions after installation to assure proper operation. Test
vehicle operation to assure no damage to vehicle.

OPERATION
GENERAL
Please note that for the SS741MG-TEC the 7 -position knob functions are reversed.
This unit is designed for easy operation under the stress associated with high-speed
pursuit. Most siren functions are accessible with one simple motion without
repetitive activation of switches or automatic timed switching that can interfere with
desired operation.
POWER
In order for the siren to function, the power switch must be in the ON position.
When turned on, the siren may be activated at the operator’s discretion.
-11-
SELECTOR SWITCH
The rotary selector switch controls the primary
operating function of the siren.
PSHR (Phaser)- Ultra-fast warble tone used for
maximum attention in highly congested areas.
YELP - A rapid warble tone used in light to
moderately congested areas .
WAIL - A normal rise-fall tone used on highways and
areas with low traffic or constant traffic flow.
Please note that for the
SS741MG-TEC the 7 -position
knob functions are reversed.
HF (Hands Free) - Also known as Horn Ring Cycler, allows the user to cycle
through Wail, Yelp, Phaser and Manual by repeatedly pressing the horn or other
switch connected to the AUX input. Operating any other switch resumes normal
operation. Please note that this mode disables the Manual (MAN) push-button
selection when a Wail, Yelp, or Phaser tone is cycled to.
MAN (Manual) - A silent mode that allows push-button Manual (MAN), pushbutton Horn, and Public Address operation. The siren output winds down when
the Manual push-button switch is released.
ALERT - A silent mode that allows push-button Manual (MAN), push-button
Horn and Public Address operation. The siren output terminates immediately
when the Manual push-button switch is released.
RADIO - Also known as Radio Repeat, this function amplifies a radio speaker
input for re-broadcast outside the vehicle through the siren speaker(s). PA is
available, but no siren tones are available in this position.

(NOTE: PHASER and TWO-TONE may be optionally swapped or disabled via
program jumpers. See INSTALLER-SELECTABLE OPTIONS on pages 4-5.)
-12-
MAN
With the selector switch in the Manual, Alert or Hands Free position this
momentary push-button switch provides a manually activated Wail siren tone.
While the selector switch is in the Wail, Yelp, or Phaser position, this switch
provides a generally quicker changing tone. (See tables below and on next page).
These quicker tones are used to momentarily alert motorists at intersections and
very highly congested areas. Pressing the button once changes to the next faster
tone. Pressing the manual button again, reverts the siren back to the original tone.
Optional configuration allows the replacement of the Phaser tone with TwoTone, or the disabling the Phaser tone entirely. These options are selected during
installation and may be governed by State or Local laws. (Refer to the
INSTALLER SELECTABLE OPTIONS section on page 4).
HORN (Air Horn)
This momentary push-button switch provides a simulated air-horn tone while
pressed. This can be used to either replace, or to supplement the normal vehicle
horn and is useful at intersections or in low noise areas. This tone will override all
other siren tones.
-13-
VOLUME CONTROLS
RADIO REPEAT VOLUME
The radio repeat volume is recessed on the
front face of the amplifier next to the
communication jack. This should be set when
the vehicle is parked. First set the volume level
of the vehicle’s two-way radio to its normal
operating volume. Adjust the siren’s rotary
selector switch into the
RADIO position. Insert a small, flat blade screwdriver into the RADIO volume
adjustment port. Turn clockwise direction to increase the sound level.
PA VOLUME:
The PA volume control is provided for public address
volume. This is located in the upper right hand corner of
the control head. It should be set when the vehicle is
parked. Set the PA volume to the maximum level with
no feedback (squeal).
MICROPHONE
The attached noise-canceling microphone is used for public address operation and
overrides any siren tone when it’s push-to-talk (button on the side) is pressed.
AUXILIARY INPUT
During installation an auxiliary input may be connected to the vehicle horn ring or
other switching device. It provides the same operation as pressing the Horn button
or optionally (via internal jumpers) the Manual (MAN) push-button.
PARK KILL (CUTOUT)
During installation, the Park Kill input may be connected to a door switch.
It will automatically turn off any siren tone when the door is opened. The
siren tone will continue to be cut off even when the door is closed. Changing
any switch or input will restore normal function.
SPEAKER DIAGNOSTICS
There are two diagnostic LED’s located in the lower left
hand corner of the control head. These LED’s will only
turn on while a tone is trying to be generated. Status of the
speakers is indicated as follows:
Steady
Flashing
- Speaker is connected and operating properly.
- There is an electrical short in the speaker or
wires to the speaker.

If you are experiencing an unusually high amount of RFI, you
may perform the following steps to help reduce the RFI:
1.
Make sure that both the control head and amp are securely attached to good
chassis ground (i.e. no paint in-between the chassis and the grounding
terminal).
2.
Keep the siren control head and the police radio as far away from one another
as is practical.
3.
Check that the police radio antenna wire makes a right angle from the back of
the police radio and runs on one side of the vehicle. The communications cable
for the siren should make a right angle out of the back of the control head and
exit in the opposite direction from both the police radio antenna wire and the
police radio power wires.
4.
Excess communication cable from the control head to the amp should be tightly
bound back near the amplifier box.
5.
An RFI choke (www.digikey.com P/N: 240-2066; STAR P/N: P30039-57) can
be placed around the communications cable at the back of the siren amplifier
box.
6.
You can also place a second RFI choke around the Red and Black wires exiting
the siren amplifier box.
