Introduction
The 3599L5 uses an easily concealable remote hand held controller coupled to an electronic siren, all designed to
meet the needs of emergency vehicles. This series incorporates many of the popular features of existing Code 3 siren
systems as well as some new features such as new siren tones, 4 auxiliary controls, EU Lock, and Title 13 Compliance.
The purpose of this document is to aid in the setup and installation of the 3599L5, and to provide instructions for its
proper operation.
SIREN PRODUCTS
Sirens are an integral part of an effective audio/visual emergency warning system. However,
sirens are only short range secondary warning devices. The use of a siren does not insure
that all drivers can or will observe or react to an emergency warning signal, particularly at long
distances or when either vehicle is traveling at a high rate of speed. Sirens should only be used
in a combination with effective warning lights and never relied upon as a sole warning signal.
Never take the right of way for granted. It is your responsibility to be sure you can proceed safely
before entering an intersection driving against traffic, or responding at a high rate of speed.
The effectiveness of this warning device is highly dependent upon correct mounting and wiring.
Read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions before installing this device. The vehicle operator
should check the equipment daily to insure that all features of the device operate correctly.
To be effective, sirens must produce high sound levels that potentially can inflict hearing damage.
Installers should be warned to wear hearing protection, clear bystanders from the area and not
to operate the siren indoors during testing. Vehicle operators and occupants should assess their
exposure to siren noise and determine what steps, such as consultation with professionals or
use of hearing protection should be implemented to protect their hearing.
This equipment is intended for use by authorized personnel only. It is the user’s responsibility
to understand and obey all laws regarding emergency warning devices. The user should check
all applicable city, state and federal laws and regulations. Code 3, Inc., assumes no liability for
any loss resulting from the use of this warning device.
Proper installation is vital to the performance of the siren and the safe operation of the
emergency vehicle. It is important to recognize that the operator of the emergency vehicle is
under psychological and physiological stress caused by the emergency situation. The siren
system should be installed in such a manner as to: A) Not reduce the acoustical performance of
the system, B) Limit as much as practical the noise level in the passenger compartment of the
vehicle, C) Place the controls within convenient reach of the operator so that he can operate
the system without losing eye contact with the roadway.
Emergency warning devices often require high electrical voltages and/or currents. Properly
protect and use caution around live electrical connections. Grounding or shorting of electrical
connections can cause high current arcing, which can cause personal injury and/or severe
vehicle damage, including fire.
PROPER INSTALLATION COMBINED WITH OPERATOR TRAINING IN THE PROPER
USE OF EMERGENCY WARNING DEVICES IS ESSENTIAL TO INSURE THE SAFETY OF
EMERGENCY PERSONNEL AND THE PUBLIC.

After unpacking the siren, carefully inspect the unit and associated parts for any damage that may have been caused
in transit. Report any damage to the carrier immediately.
Parts included in the box:
-
Siren (amplifier)
-
Hand-Held Controller with Base
-
25’ Extension Cable
-
Parts Bag
Installation & Mounting
The hand-held controller may be mounted in various locations in the vehicle: below the dash, on the tunnel, etc. using
the hardware supplied. Ease of operation and convenience to the operator should be the prime consideration when
mounting the siren and controls. The amplifier may be mounted at an appropriate location within the vehicle, and the
25’ extension cord can be used to couple the hand-held controller to the amplifier.
All devices should be mounted in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and securely
fastened to vehicle elements of sufficient strength to withstand the forces applied to the device.
Ease of operation and convenience to the operator should be the prime consideration when
mounting the siren and controls. Adjust the mounting angle to allow maximum operator visibility.
Do not mount the Hand-Held Controller in a location that will obstruct the drivers view. Mount the
Hand-Held Controller mounting base in a convenient location to allow the operator easy access.
Devices should be mounted only in locations that conform to their SAE identification code as
described in SAE Standard J1849. For example, electronics designed for interior mounting
should not be placed underhood, etc. Controls should be placed within convenient reach* of
the driver or if intended for two person operation the driver and/or passenger. In some vehicles,
multiple control switches and/or using methods such as “horn ring transfer” which utilizes the
vehicle horn switch to toggle between siren tones may be necessary for convenient operation
from two positions.
*Convenient reach is defined as the ability of the operator of the siren system to manipulate the
controls from hir normal driving/riding position without excessive movement away from the seat
back or loss of eye contact with the roadway.

The 3599L5 amplifier is not waterproof. It must be mounted in a location that is sheltered from rain, snow, standing water,
etc. It must be also installed in an adequately ventilated area. Do not install near heater ducts or under the vehicle’s hood.
Using the mounting holes on the amplifier as a template, scribe four drill position marks at the mounting locations. Be sure
that both sides of the mounting surface are clear of parts that may be damaged. The siren accessory kit with mounting hardware supplied provides the user with a choice of mounting hardware. Secure the 3599L5 amplifier to the mounting surface,
using the mounting hardware, including lock washers.
Connection between the hand-held controller and the 3599L5 amplifier box is via an eight-conductor cable with RJ45 connectors at both ends for simple installation.
Larger wires and tight connections will provide longer service life for components. For high
current wires it is highly recommended that terminal blocks or soldered connections be used
with shrink tubing to protect the connections. Do not use insulation displacement connections
(e.g. 3M) Scotchlock type connectors. Route wiring using grommets and sealant when passing
through compartment walls. Minimize the number of splices to reduce voltage drop. High ambient
temperatures (e.g. underhood) will significantly reduce the current carrying capacity of wires, fuses,
and circuit breakers. Use “SXL” type wire in engine compartment.
All wiring should confirm to the minimum wire size and other recommendations of the manufacturer
and be protected from moving parts and hot surfaces. Looms, grommets, cable ties, and similar
installation hardware should be used to anchor and protect all wiring.
Fuses or circuit breakers should be located as close to the power takeoff points as possible and
properly sized to protect the wiring and devices. Particular attention should be paid to the location
and method of making electrical connections and splices to protect these point from corrosion
and loss of conductivity. Ground (Earth) terminations should only be made to substantial chassis
components, preferably directly to the vehicle battery.
The user should install a circuit breaker sized to approximately 125% of the maximum Amp capacity
in the supply line to protect against short circuits. For example, a 30 Amp circuit breaker should carry
a maximum of 24 Amps.
DO NOT USE 1/4” DIAMETER GLASS FUSES AS THEY ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR CONTINUOUS
DUTY IN SIZES ABOVE 15 AMPS. Circuit breakers are very sensitive to high termperatures and will
“false trip” when mounted in hot environments or operated close to their capacity.
Connections
Reference Figure 1 – Wiring Diagram
1. Disconnect the cable on the negative end of the battery before performing installation. Do not connect the 3599L5 system to vehicle battery until all other electrical connections are made and mounting of all components is complete. Verify
the polarities of the cable and ensure that no short circuits exist before connecting to the battery terminals. If routing
the extension cable requires drilling a hole in sheet metal or other material, drill a 5/8″ hole in the material and install a
5/8″ grommet (not supplied) to protect the cable.
2. User-supplied 12-gauge red and black wires are required for positive (+12V) and negative (NEG) connections. Usersupplied 18-gauge wires are required for the speaker, door/park-siren-off input, radio input, chassis ground, horn ring
out and horn ring in connections.
3. Install the supplied 8-conductor, RJ45 cable between the siren and the handheld controller. Install one end of the cable
to the mating connector on the handheld controller and install the other end into the mating connector on the amplifier
box.
4. Configure the dip switches on the front of the siren amplifier to suit your needs. See page 9 for the list of dip switches
and their impact on the system.

5. To install the positive and negative power wires, strip 1/4” of insulation from the end of the wires, insert the wire into the
quick-on connector (supplied) and crimp securely with proper tool. Connect the red wire to “+12V” position and black
wire to the “NEG ” position of the connectors on 3599L5. The “+12V” position may be connected either directly to a
+12V source (such as a battery), or through a switch (such as an ignition switch). Special care should be taken if the
3599L5 is connected directly to a battery as it will always have a small current draw, even in standby mode (up to 180
mA). If it is necessary to leave the car off for long periods of time (5 or more days), a battery shut off device may need
to be installed to prevent the siren from draining the battery.
5
6. The unit is supplied with an eight-position, pluggable connector (color green) for the other connections. Insert the wire
into the connector and tighten the screw at these appropriate connector positions:
a. Speaker – the siren is designed to operate with one 11-ohm impedance speaker (100W) or two 11-ohm impedance
speakers (200W). Speakers are not included as part of the siren. Any 11-ohm 100W speakers for use with emergency vehicle may be considered to use. When using two speakers, they must be connected in parallel and in phase.
CONNECTION OF A 58 WATT SPEAKER TO THE SPKR TERMINAL WILL CAUSE THE SPEAKER
TO BURN OUT, AND WILL VOID THE SPEAKER WARRANTY!
b. Horn Ring In and Out – The horn ring transfer circuit is capable of switching a maximum of 10 amperes. An external
relay is not required for horn ring operation. Locate the wire that connects the vehicle horn ring switch to the horn or
horn relay. Cut this wire. Connect a wire from “HORN RING IN” position on the connector to the horn ring side of the
wire that was just cut. Connect a wire from “HORN RING OUT” position on the connector to the horn side of the cut
wire. Properly insulate the wires. (Note: A footswitch may be substituted to use with “HORN-TAP” function. Connect a
wire to one end of the footswitch wire to the other end of the footswitch wires and the vehicle chassis.). The user has
the option for two different tone outputs when depressing the horn – Air Horn (default) or Manual. See the section
titled “Operation” for dip switch configurations.
c. Chassis ground – This wire should not be left unconnected. It is necessary to connect the siren enclosure to ground
and gain shielding effect. Use an 18-gause wire to connect the siren case to a good vehicle chassis point.
d. Door/Park-Siren-Off input – This feature automatically deactivates siren tones when the vehicle is shifted into PARK.
Lighting Level 3 will also “drop-out “ if this feature is enabled via the front panel dip switch. Siren tones will be disabled
until the vehicle is shifted out of PARK. This circuit is activated by a negative signal. Connect this input to a circuit that
is GROUNDED when the vehicle is shifted into PARK. It is the installer’s responsibility to determine an appropriate
location in the vehicle circuitry to connect this wire. See the section titled “Operation” for dip switch configurations.
e. Radio rebroadcast - Any line output signal with nominal one volt peak to peak can be connected here. If the output
seems to start distorted, reduce the radio gain by adjusting the “Radio Gain” trimmer on front of siren amplifier.
7. Plug the eight-position connector into the mating connector on the unit, and apply pressure until it locks into place.
8. To install the lightbar power wires, strip approximately 1/4″ of insulation from the end of the lights wires. Insert the wire
in the appropriate terminal of 7-position screw terminal block and tighten the screw. Keep in mind that terminals A, B,
and C have a 20 amp maximum current each, and terminals D, E, F, and G have a 10 amp maximum current each. The
total current of all 7 terminals is limited to 60 Amps,
9. Connect the +12V LTG wire directly to a 12V source. This connector provides power to the 3 Level, progressive lighting outputs and the 4 auxiliary outputs. This connection is designed to provide 60 amp service and therefore nothing
smaller than #4 gauge wire should be connected to it. If a fuse is installed, it should be sized for the actual load of the
lighting used and located as close to the battery positive as possible.
10. Ensure that there are no loose wire strands or other bare wire that may cause a short circuit. All wires must be protected
from any sharp edged that could eventually cut through the insulation. Also use an ohmmeter to verify that a short circuit
does not exist between the positive (+) leads and the vehicles chassis.
11. Perform visual check of all connections and wiring more before connecting the red wire to the positive (+) terminal and
black wire to the negative (-) terminal of the battery.

Operation
Any electronic device my create or be affected by electromagnetic interference. After installation
of any electronic device, operate all equipment simultaneously to insure that operation is free of
interference.
Push to Talk and Radio Gain
Adjust the gain trimmers located on the rear of the amplifier to reduce distortion.
Horn Ring Feature
The Horn Ring feature allows the driver to enable and change the audible siren sound via the vehicle’s horn ring. Depending upon the position of Dip switches #6 & #7, the horn ring switch will emulate either the function of the “AIR” or “MANUAL”
button on the handheld controller or scroll through various siren tones. The Scrolling Feature is completely disabled when
Dip switch #6 is in the “on” position. When Dip switch #6 is in the “on” position, the horn ring will always emulate either the
“AIR” or “MANUAL” button as set by Dip switch #7.
The following outputs are achieved by tapping the horn ring:

Park Kill Feature
This feature deactivates the siren tones when the vehicle is either shifted into park or door is opened (depending on how the
end user wired this feature into the vehicle). The siren will remain deactivated until the vehicle is shifted into gear or the door
is closed and the siren is manually restarted. If Dip switch #4 is in the “on” position, Light Level 3 will also drop to Light Level
2 when the vehicle is shifted into park or door is opened. The lights will remain in Light Level 2 unless manually changed.
IMPORTANT WARNINGS TO USERS OF SIRENS: “Wail” and “Yelp” tones are in some cases (such
as the state of California) the only recognized siren tones for calling for the right of way. Ancillary
tones such as “Air Horn”, “Hi-Lo”, “Hyper Yelp”, and “Hyper Lo” in some cases do not provide as high
a sound pressure level. It is recommended that these tones be used in a secondary mode to alert
motorists to the presence of multiple emergency vehicles or to the momentary shift from the primary
tone as an indication of the imminent presence of any emergency vehicle.
7
EU Lock Feature
By setting either Dip switch #8 or Dip switch #9 to the “on” position, the EU Lock Feature is enabled. This feature ensures
that at least a certain Light Level is on while any siren tones, except Air Horn, are on. If the siren is turned on without the
minimum Light Level on, then that Light Level will turn on. If later that Light Level is turned off, then the siren will also turn
off if it is still on. The minimum Light Level is set by the following table:
OPERATION MODE
EU Lock Disabled
EU Lock Level 1
EU Lock Level 2
EU Lock Level 3
Dip switch #8 Dip switch #9
OFF
OFF
ON
OFF
OFF
ON

For Example: If EU Lock Level 1 is enabled (by setting Dip switch #8 “ON”, and Dip switch #9 “OFF), then at least
Light Level 1 will always be on while the siren is on. If the siren is turned on and no lights are on, then Light Level
1 will also turn on. When Light Level 1 is turned off, then the siren will also turn off if it is still on.
Auto Siren Feature
By setting Dip switch #2 to the “on” position, Auto Siren is enabled. In this mode, the SIR1 siren tone will automatically turn
on when Lighting Level 3 is turned on. When Lighting Level 3 is later turned off, any siren tone that is on will also shut off.
The SIR1 siren tone may be programmed as described below.
Programmable Siren Tones
The SIR1 and SIR2 are user programmable. They are preset at the factory as such: SIR1 – Wail and SIR2 – Yelp, To
change the factory preset, depress and hold the STBY button, then depress/release the desired SIR button to go to the next
available tone. Once the desired tone is chosen, release both buttons. Repeat for the other SIR buttons.
Programmable Air Horn Pitch Tones
There are two tones available for the Air Horn. To change, depress and hold the STBY button, then depress/release the Air
Horn button. Once the desired tone is chosen, release both buttons.
Auxiliary Light Control Buttons
There are four auxiliary light control buttons that the user can use as desired. To operate, depress/release once and the
desired feature will be enabled. Depress/release again and the feature will be disabled. The AUX3 and AUX4 buttons have
special modes they can operate in that can be enabled with Dip switches. If these modes are not set, AUX3 and AUX4
operate in default mode, which is the same as the other AUX buttons. Below is a description of these two modes.
AUX3 - Momentary Active Mode
When Dip switch #3 is “on”, the AUX3 channel is only active while the AUX3 button is pressed. Once released, the
AUX3 channel will become inactive again.
AUX4 - Gun Lock Mode
When Dip switch #5 is “on”, pressing the AUX4 button will cause the AUX4 channel to become active for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, the AUX4 channel will become inactive again.
Keypad Backlight Shut Off
For daytime applications, or applications that require no light output, the blue/red lighting on the keypad may be shut off.
This is accomplished by holding the STBY button down for 5 or more seconds without pressing any other buttons on the
keypad. To turn keypad lighting back on, hold the STBY button down for 5 or more seconds without pressing any other
buttons on the keypad.
California Title 13 Compliance
By setting Dip switch #1 to the “on” position, the 3599L5 operates in a California Title 13 Compliance mode. In this mode,
Hyper Yelp, Hi-Lo, Hyper-Lo, and Whoop siren tones are disabled. In addition, the Air Horn is disabled if Light Levels 2 or
3 are on.
8
Configurable Dip switches
There are ten dip switches on the front of the 3599L5 amplifier that can be used to set various different features of the system. When a dip switch is facing downward (towards the mounting bracket), it is considered to be in the “on” position. When
it is facing upward (towards the wiring diagram), it is considered to be in the “off” position. All dip switches come preset to
the “off” position.
Below is a description of the functions of all ten dip switches.
Dip switch #1
When “ON”, the siren will operate in California Title 13 Mode. Hyper Yelp, Hi-Lo, Hyper-Lo and Whoop siren tones will be
disabled, limiting the available tones to Wail and Yelp. In addition, the Air Horn is disabled if Light Levels 2 or 3 are active.
Dip switch #2
When “ON”, enables Auto Siren. If Light Level 3 is turned on, then SIR1 siren tone will also turn on. When Light Level 3 is
turned off, any siren tone that is on will also turn off.
Dip switch #3
When “ON”, enables the Momentary Active Mode of AUX3. AUX3 will only be active while the AUX3 button is pressed.
Dip switch #4
When “ON”, enables the Park Kill Light Level 3 Feature. When Park Kill disables the siren, it will also drop the Light Level
from Level 3 to Level 2 (if it is currently in Level 3).
Dip switch #5
When “ON”, enables the Gun Lock Mode of AUX4. When the AUX4 button is pressed, AUX4 will immediately become active. After 10 seconds, AUX4 will become inactive again.
Dip switch #6
When “ON”, disables the Horn Ring Scrolling feature described above. When this dip switch is in the “on” position, the horn
ring will always produce either the Air Horn or Manual Tone regardless of siren or light levels.
Dip switch #7
When “ON”, Horn Ring will emulate the “MANUAL” button. When “OFF”, Horn Ring will emulate the “AIR HORN” button.
Dip switch #8 and Dip switch #9
When either Dip switch #8 or Dip switch #9 to the “on” position, the EU Lock Feature is enabled. This feature ensures that at
least a certain Light Level is on while any siren tones, except Air Horn, are on. If the siren is turned on without the minimum
Light Level on, then that Light Level will turn on. If later that Light Level is turned off, then the siren will also turn off if it is
still on. The minimum Light Level is set by the following table:

Introduction
The 3598L5 is a new system that uses an easily concealable remote hand held controller coupled to an electronic siren,
all designed to meet the needs of emergency vehicles. This series incorporates many of the popular features of existing
Code 3 siren systems.
SIREN PRODUCTS
Sirens are an integral part of an effective audio/visual emergency warning system. However,
sirens are only short range secondary warning devices. The use of a siren does not insure
that all drivers can or will observe or react to an emergency warning signal, particularly at long
distances or when either vehicle is traveling at a high rate of speed. Sirens should only be used
in a combination with effective warning lights and never relied upon as a sole warning signal.
Never take the right of way for granted. It is your responsibility to be sure you can proceed safely
before entering an intersection driving against traffic, or responding at a high rate of speed.
The effectiveness of this warning device is highly dependent upon correct mounting and wiring.
Read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions before installing this device. The vehicle operator
should check the equipment daily to insure that all features of the device operate correctly.
To be effective, sirens must produce high sound levels that potentially can inflict hearing damage.
Installers should be warned to wear hearing protection, clear bystanders from the area and not
to operate the siren indoors during testing. Vehicle operators and occupants should assess their
exposure to siren noise and determine what steps, such as consultation with professionals or
use of hearing protection should be implemented to protect their hearing.
This equipment is intended for use by authorized personnel only. It is the user’s responsibility
to understand and obey all laws regarding emergency warning devices. The user should check
all applicable city, state and federal laws and regulations. Code 3, Inc., assumes no liability for
any loss resulting from the use of this warning device.
Proper installation is vital to the performance of the siren and the safe operation of the
emergency vehicle. It is important to recognize that the operator of the emergency vehicle is
under psychological and physiological stress caused by the emergency situation. The siren
system should be installed in such a manner as to: A) Not reduce the acoustical performance of
the system, B) Limit as much as practical the noise level in the passenger compartment of the
vehicle, C) Place the controls within convenient reach of the operator so that he can operate
the system without losing eye contact with the roadway.
Emergency warning devices often require high electrical voltages and/or currents. Properly
protect and use caution around live electrical connections. Grounding or shorting of electrical
connections can cause high current arcing, which can cause personal injury and/or severe
vehicle damage, including fire.
PROPER INSTALLATION COMBINED WITH OPERATOR TRAINING IN THE PROPER
USE OF EMERGENCY WARNING DEVICES IS ESSENTIAL TO INSURE THE SAFETY OF
EMERGENCY PERSONNEL AND THE PUBLIC.

Parts included in the box:
-
Siren (amplifier)
-
Hand-Held Controller with Base
-
35’ Extension Cable
-
Parts Bag
Installation & Mounting
The hand-held controller may be mounted in various locations in the vehicle: below the dash, on the tunnel, etc. using
the hardware supplied. Ease of operation and convenience to the operator should be the prime consideration when
mounting the siren and controls. The amplifier may be mounted at an appropriate location within the vehicle, and the
35’ extension cord can be used to couple the hand-held controller to the amplifier.
All devices should be mounted in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and securely
fastened to vehicle elements of sufficient strength to withstand the forces applied to the device.
Ease of operation and convenience to the operator should be the prime consideration when
mounting the siren and controls. Adjust the mounting angle to allow maximum operator visibility.
Do not mount the Hand-Held Controller in a location that will obstruct the drivers view. Mount the
Hand-Held Controller mounting base in a convenient location to allow the operator easy access.
Devices should be mounted only in locations that conform to their SAE identification code as
described in SAE Standard J1849. For example, electronics designed for interior mounting
should not be placed underhood, etc. Controls should be placed within convenient reach* of
the driver or if intended for two person operation the driver and/or passenger. In some vehicles,
multiple control switches and/or using methods such as “horn ring transfer” which utilizes the
vehicle horn switch to toggle between siren tones may be necessary for convenient operation
from two positions.
*Convenient reach is defined as the ability of the operator of the siren system to manipulate the
controls from hir normal driving/riding position without excessive movement away from the seat
3
The 3598L5 amplifier is not waterproof. It must be mounted in a location that is sheltered from rain, snow, standing water,
etc. It must be also installed in an adequately ventilated area. Do not install near heater ducts or under the vehicle’s hood.
Using the mounting holes on the amplifier as a template, scribe four drill position marks at the mounting locations. Be sure
that both sides of the mounting surface are clear of parts that may be damaged. The siren accessory kit with mounting hardware supplied provides the user with a choice of mounting hardware. Secure the 3598L5 amplifier to the mounting surface,
using the mounting hardware, including lock washers.
Connection between the hand-held controller and the 3598L5 amplifier box is via an eight-conductor cable with RJ45 connectors at both ends for simple installation.
Larger wires and tight connections will provide longer service life for components. For high
current wires it is highly recommended that terminal blocks or soldered connections be used
with shrink tubing to protect the connections. Do not use insulation displacement connections
(e.g. 3M) Scotchlock type connectors. Route wiring using grommets and sealant when passing
through compartment walls. Minimize the number of splices to reduce voltage drop. High ambient
temperatures (e.g. underhood) will significantly reduce the current carrying capacity of wires, fuses,
and circuit breakers. Use “SXL” type wire in engine compartment.
All wiring should confirm to the minumum wire size and other recommendations of the manufacturer
and be protected from moving parts and hot surfaces. Looms, grommets, cable ties, and similar
installation hardware should be used to anchor and protect all wiring.
Fuses or circuit breakers should be located as close to the power takoff points as possible and
properly sized to protect the wiring and devices. Particular attention should be paid to the location
and method of making electrical connections and splices to protect these point from corrosion
and loss of conductivity. Ground (Earth) terminations should only be made to substantial chassis
components, preferably directly to the vehicle battery.
The user should install a circuit breaker sized to approximately 125% of the maximum Amp capacity
in the supply line to protect against short circuits. For example, a 30 Amp circuit breaker should carry
a maximum of 24 Amps.
DO NOT USE 1/4” DIAMETER GLASS FUSES AS THEY ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR CONTINUOUS
DUTY IN SIZES ABOVE 15 AMPS. Circuit breakers are very sensitive to high termperatures and will
“false trip” when mounted in hot environments or operated close to their capacity.
Connections
Reference Figure 1 – Wiring Diagram
1. Disconnect the cable on the negative end of the battery before performing installation. Do not connect the 3598L5 system to vehicle battery until all other electrical connections are made and mounting of all components is complete. Verify the
polarities of the cable and ensure that no short circuits exist before connecting to the battery terminals. If routing the extension cable requires drilling a hole in sheet metal or other material, drill a 5/8″hole in the material and install a 5/8″ grommet
(not supplied) to protect the cable.
2. User-supplied 14-gauge red and black wires are required for positive (+) and negative (-) connections. User-supplied
18-gauge wires are required for the speaker, door/park-siren-off input, radio input, chassis ground, horn ring out and horn
ring in connections.
3. Install the supplied 8-conductor, RJ45 cable between the siren and the handheld controller. Install one end of the cable to
the mating connector on the handheld controller and install the other end into the mating connector on the amplifier box.
4
Figure 1 - Wiring Diagram
4. To install the positive and negative power wires, strip 1/4″of insulation from the end of the wires, insert the wire into the
quick-on connector (supplied) and crimp securely with proper tool. Connect the red wire to “POS +” position and black wire
to the “NEG -” position of the connectors on 3598L5.
5
5. The unit is supplied in the accessory kit with an eight-position, pluggable connector (color green) for the other connections. Insert the wire into the connector and tighten the screw at these appropriate connector positions:
a. Speaker – the siren is designed to operate with one 11-ohm impedance speaker (100W or 150W) or two 11-ohm impedance speakers (300W). Speakers are not included as part of the siren. Any 11-ohm 150W speakers for use with emergency
vehicle may be considered to use. When using two 150W speakers, they must be connected in parallel and in phase.
CONNECTION OF A 58 WATT SPEAKER TO THE SPKR TERMINAL WILL CAUSE THE SPEAKER
TO BURN OUT, AND WILL VOID THE SPEAKER WARRANTY!
b. Horn Ring In and Out – The horn ring transfer circuit is capable of switching a maximum of 10 amperes. An external relay
is not required for horn ring operation. Locate the wire that connects the vehicle horn ring switch to the horn or horn relay.
Cut this wire. Connect a wire from “HORN RING IN” position on the connector to the horn ring side of the wire that was just
cut. Connect a wire from “HORN RING OUT” position on the connector to the horn side of the cut wire. Properly insulate the
wires. (Note: A footswitch may be substituted to use with “HORN-TAP” function. Connect a wire to one end of the footswitch
wire to the other end of the footswitch wires and the vehicle chassis.). The user has the option for two different tone outputs
when depressing the horn – Air Horn (default) or Manual. To change the default remove the amplifier cover and move the
jumper to the “MAN” position.
c. Chassis ground – This wire should not be left unconnected. It is necessary to connect the siren enclosure to ground and
gain shielding effect. Use an 18-gause wire to connect the siren case to a good vehicle chassis point.
d. Door/Park-Siren-Off input – This input accepts +12 volts to deactivate the siren tones. If connected to the PARK/
NEUTRAL position on the transmission switch, any siren tone will be deactivated when the vehicle is shifted into PARK. If
connected to a door-open switch, siren tone will be deactivated when the door is open. It is the installer’s responsibility to
determine an appropriate location in the vehicle circuitry to connect this wire.
e. Radio rebroadcast - Any line output signal with nominal one volt peak to peak can be connected here. If the output seems
to start distorted, reduce the radio gain by adjusting the “Radio Gain” trimmer on back of siren amplifier.
6. Plug the eight-position connector into the mating connector on the unit, and apply pressure until it locks into place.
7. To install the lightbar power wires, strip approximately 1/4″of insulation from the end of the lights wires. Insert the wire in
the appropriate terminal of 5-position screw terminal block and tighten the screw.
8. Ensure that there are no loose wire strands or other bare wire that may cause a short circuit. All wires must be protected
from any sharp edged that could eventually cut through the insulation. Also use an ohmmeter to verify that a short circuit
does not exist between the positive (+) leads and the vehicles chassis.
9. Perform visual check of all connections and wiring more before connecting the red wire to the positive (+) terminal and
black wire to the negative (-) terminal of the battery.

Operation
Any electronic device my create or be affected by electromagnetic interference. After installation
of any electronic device, operate all equipment simultaneously to insure that operation is free of
interference.
Push to Talk and Radio Gain
Adjust the gain trimmers located on the rear of the amplifier to reduce distortion.
Horn Ring Feature
The HORN-TAP feature allows the driver to enable and change the audible siren sound via the vehicle’s horn ring. Depending upon the position of the two-position jumper, the horn ring switch will can either emulate the function of the “AIR” or
“MANUAL” button on the handheld controller or scroll through various siren tones.
The following ouputs are achieved by tapping the horn ring:

Footswitch/Pursuit Feature
A footswitch may be substituted for the “HORN-TAP” feature. It may be required under some circumstances, such as in the
event of pursuit.
Park Kill Feature
This feature deactivates the siren tones when the vehicle is either shifted into park or door is opened (depending on how
the end user wired this feature into the vehicle). The siren will remain deactivated until the vehicle is shifted into gear or the
door is closed and the siren is restarted.
Programmable Siren Tones
The SIR1, SIR2 and SIR3 are user programmable. They are preset at the factory as such: SIR1 – Wail, SIR2 – Yelp, SIR3
– Hi-Lo. To change the factory preset, depress and hold the on/off button, then depress/release the desired SIR button to
go to the next available tone. Once the desired tone is chosen, release both buttons. Repeat for the other SIR buttons.
Programmable Air Horn Pitch Tones
There are two tones available for the Air Horn. To change, depress and hold the on/off button, then depress/release the Air
Horn button. Once the desired tone is chosen, release both buttons.
Auxiliary Light Control Buttons
There are two auxiliary light control buttons that the user can use as desired. To operate, depress/release once and the
desired feature will be enabled.
7
IMPORTANT WARNINGS TO USERS OF SIRENS: “Wail” and “Yelp” tones are in some cases (such
as the state of California) the only recognized siren tones for calling for the right of way. Ancillary
tones such as “Air Horn”, “Hi-Lo”, “Hyperyelp”, and “Hyperlo” in some cases do not provide as high
a sound pressure level. It is recommended that these tones be used in a secondary mode to alert
motorists to the presence of multiple emergency vehicles or to the momentary shift from the primary
tone as an indication of the imminent presence of any emergency vehicle.
