Installation Guide
X-ECUTOR™ 1 Siren Amplifier
Safety First
This document provides all the necessary information to allow your Whelen product to be properly and safely installed.
Before beginning the installation and/or operation of your new product, the installation technician and operator must
read this manual completely. Important information is contained herein that could prevent serious injury or damage.
•
Proper installation of this product requires the installer to have a good understanding of automotive
electronics, systems and procedures.
•
If mounting this product requires drilling holes, the installer MUST be sure that no vehicle components or
other vital parts could be damaged by the drilling process. Check both sides of the mounting surface
before drilling begins. Also de-burr any holes and remove any metal shards or remnants. Install
grommets into all wire passage holes.
•
If this product is mounted with tape or Velcro™, clean the mounting surface with a 50/50 mix of isopropyl
alcohol and water and dry thoroughly.
•
Do not install this product or route any wires in the deployment area of your air bag. Equipment mounted
or located in the air bag deployment area will damage or reduce the effectiveness of the air bag, or
become a projectile that could cause serious personal injury or death. Refer to your vehicle owners
manual for the air bag deployment area. The User/Installer assumes full responsibility to determine
proper mounting location, based on providing ultimate safety to all passengers inside the vehicle.
•
For this product to operate at optimum efficiency, a good electrical connection to chassis ground must be
made. The recommended procedure requires the product ground wire to be connected directly to the
NEGATIVE (-) battery post.
•
If this product uses a remote device to activate or control this product, make sure that this control is
located in an area that allows both the vehicle and the control to be operated safely in any driving
condition.
•
Do not attempt to activate or control this device in a hazardous driving situation.
•
It is recommended that these instructions be stored in a safe place and referred to when performing
maintenance and/or reinstallation of this product.
•
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN DAMAGE
TO THE PRODUCT OR VEHICLE AND/OR SERIOUS INJURY TO YOU AND YOUR PASSENGERS!

Installation:
Connecting to Speaker / 100 watt:
1.
Find a suitable mounting location. A dry, cool compartment
is a good choice.
1.
Route the ORANGE and BROWN wires to your speaker.
2.
Connect the ORANGE wire to the WHITE (+) speaker wire.
2.
Be sure that the amplifier fits properly, then position the
amplifier on the mounting location and using an awl or other
suitable tool, scribe the mounting surface where the
mounting holes are to be drilled.
3.
Connect the BROWN wire to the BLACK (-) speaker wire.
Caution:
As mounting this product will require drilling, it
is absolutely necessary to make sure that no
other vehicle components could be damaged
by the drilling process. If any vehicle
component could suffer potential harm, select
a different location.
3.
Carefully drill the mounting holes using a #30 drill bit.
4.
Using the supplied sheet metal screws, secure the remote
amplifier to the mounting location.
Input Connector - P1:
Connecting to Power
WARNING! All customer supplied wires that connect to
the positive terminal of the battery, must be sized to supply
at least 125% of the maximum operating current and fused
“at the battery” to carry that load (see wire chart below).
2.
Connect the RED wire to an SPST switch. Extend a wire (of
appropriate gage as shown below) from this switch to the
vehicle battery. Install a 15 Amp fuse (customer supplied) at
the end of this wire. Extend a wire from the fuse block
towards the positive terminal of the battery. Do not connect
this unit to the battery yet.
Connect the BLACK wire to the vehicle’s chassis ground.

Siren configuration and function are determined by user
supplied switches connected to the amplifier. A brief
explanation of each of the wires of the Input control connector
will serve as a guide to help decide the best configuration for
your needs:
WHITE / GREEN
(Manual)
Press Manual and a wail tone will ramp up
to a peak, then ramp down when released.
WHITE / ORANGE
(Brake)
Press Brake and the tone will quickly
ramp down and stop.
WHITE / YELLOW
(Air Horn)
Pressing Air Horn will generate an Air Horn
sound. This function overrides the manual
wail tone.
Installation will be complete after the fuse block wire is
connected to the POSITIVE (+) terminal of the battery. After this
connection has been made, visually inspect the fuses at the
back of the amplifier and at the battery. If either of these fuses is
blown, carefully inspect all of the circuit wires and make sure
they are wired correctly. Replace the blown fuses with ones of
an identical amp rating. If these fuses blow after installation or
activation, contact Whelen Engineering Technical Support.
Dip Switch Settings
Dip Switch 5 effects the tonal qualities of the simulated
mechanical siren tone. In the up (OFF) position, the tone
generated has a more mechanical sound. In the down (ON)
position, the tone is less mechanical.
