GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The SA-365 Siren Amplifier is designed for single 100W speaker use. The primary operating
modes are Yelp, Wail and Standby, selected by a 3-position rocker switch. Horn Override, pushon/push-off Phaser operation in the Yelp and Wail modes, and Manual siren control in the
Standby mode are controlled by a momentary 3-position rocker switch. The unit features instanton allowing the unit to produce a tone instantly when a switch is activated. A DIP switch provides
options such as Two-Tone, disable tones, HRC2 operation, Auxiliary function, etc. The unit utilizes short circuit, high voltage, and reverse polarity protection systems for maximum service life.
An output light indicates siren signal output for diagnostics and troubleshooting.

INSTALLATION
Proper installation of the unit is essential for years of safe, reliable operation. Please read all
instruction before installing the unit. Failure to follow these instructions can cause serious damage to the unit or vehicle and may void warranties.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
For the safety of the installer, vehicle operator, passengers and the community please observe
the following safety precautions. Failure to follow all safety precautions and instructions may
result in property damage, injury or death.
Qualifications - The installer must have a firm knowledge of basic electricity, vehicle electrical
systems and emergency equipment.
Sound Hazard - Sound level from siren speaker (>120dBA @ 10 feet) may cause hearing damage.
Do not operate siren without adequate hearing protection for you and anyone in immediate vicinity.
(Ref. OSHA 1910.95 for occupational noise exposure guidelines)
Mounting - Mount the unit for easy access by the vehicle operator. DO NOT mount in air bag
deployment area. Assure clearances before drilling in vehicle. To prevent internal damage
mounting bolts must not enter case more than 1/4"
Wiring - Use wiring capable of handling the current required. Make sure all connections are tight.
Route wiring to prevent wear, overheating and interference with air bag deployment. Install and
check all wiring before connection to vehicle battery.
Testing - Test all siren functions after installation to assure proper operation. Test vehicle operation to assure no damage to vehicle.
Keep These Instructions - Keep these instructions in the vehicle or other safe place for future
reference. Advise the vehicle operator of the location.
UNPACKING

SW-4 and 5 Siren Tone Disable - All siren tones may be disabled except Horn by turning ON
both switches. All switches will produce Horn tone.
SW-6 Horn Inhibit - Turn this switch ON to disable Horn tone. Horn replaced with Yelp.
SW-7 Short Manual - The manual tone normally falls and dies out when the manual switch is
released. Turn this switch ON to have the tone stop immediately.
SW-8 Phaser Override - While in standby mode, the manual switch will normally activate manual
tone. Turn this switch ON to momentarily activate Phaser tone.
HORN RING CYCLER 2 (HRC2) - Turn on DIP SW-2 and SW-3 to enable this feature. Also
connect the auxiliary input to the horn ring or other switch. While the siren is in standby, tap the
horn ring to bring the unit out of standby into Wail tone. Repeatedly tapping the horn ring will
cycle through Wail, Yelp, and Phaser tones. Tapping the horn ring twice quickly will stop the siren
tones and return the unit to standby. Pressing and holding the horn ring will produce Horn tone
until released. Then the siren will return to its previous siren tone or standby.

MOUNTING
The mounting bracket supplied can be installed above or below the unit. Choose a mounting
location convenient to the operator and away from any air bag deployment areas. Inspect behind
mounting area for clearance. Assure adequate ventilation to prevent overheating. Consider wire
routing and access to connections, as well as microphone bracket placement. Install mounting
bracket to vehicle using 1/4" hardware (not supplied). If mounting in a rack or console, make sure
that mounting bolts do not enter case more than 1/4".
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
Electrical connections to the unit are made using a removable terminal block plug located on the
back. A label on the unit identifies each terminal function. Install the plug on the unit before
wiring. If the unit needs service the plug can be easily removed without unwiring. 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 fused near connector.
Attach leads by stripping 3/8", inserting into plug and clamp by tightening screw. Make sure the
screw is tight and the wire can't be pulled out.
Failure to adequately tighten the screw can result in improper operation or burning the
connector and wire.
Wire Size and Termination - The diagram shows the minimum wire size used for each connection, along with recommended lead color. If the wire is longer than 10 ft. use the next larger wire
size. Use only high quality crimp connectors for installation on the vehicle.
Auxiliary Input Connection (AUX) (Optional) - A momentary input typically connected to the
horn ring of the vehicle or other switch. The auxiliary input may be activated with positive or
negative voltage. Input current is less than 10 mA.
See OPTION SWITCHES section for polarity selection.
NOTE: Permanent disconnection of the vehicle horn is NOT recommended.

OPERATION
Sound Hazard - Sound level from siren speaker (>120dBA @ 10 feet) may cause hearing damage.
Do not operate siren without adequate hearing protection for you and anyone in immediate vicinity.
(Ref. OSHA 1910.95 for occupational noise exposure guidelines)
POWER ON/OFF
The unit is turned on/off automatically (instant on) with the siren or auxiliary input controls.
YELP - STANDBY - WAIL SELECTOR SWITCH
A 3-position rocker selector switch controls the primary
operating mode of the siren.
Yelp - A rapidly changing tone used in congested areas.
Wail - A slower changing tone used on highways.
Standby - A silent mode that may be overridden anytime.

or in low noise areas. Horn tone may be disabled.
See OPTION SWITCHES section.
Phaser - With selector switch in Wail or Yelp, this tone override is toggled on and off by repeatedly pressing switch. A very rapid changing tone used at intersections and very highly congested
areas. May be optionally replaced with Two-Tone or disabled. Two-Tone is two alternating
frequencies like a European. See OPTION SWITCHES section.

AUXILIARY INPUT FUNCTIONS
The switch or horn ring attached is intended to be momentary.
When the selector switch is in Wail or Yelp, activating auxiliary will produce the Horn tone.
With selector switch in Standby, activating auxiliary will normally produce Horn tone. Different
tones are available. See OPTION SWITCHES section.
Horn Ring Cycler 2 (HRC2) - this feature may also be added by turning on the HRC2 option.
HRC2 is only available while the unit is in Standby. Tapping the attached horn ring or other
switch, will bring the unit out of standby into Wail tone. Repeatedly tapping the horn ring will cycle
through Wail, Yelp, and Phaser tones. Tapping the horn ring twice quickly will stop the siren
tones and return the unit to standby. Pressing and holding the horn ring will produce Horn tone
until released. Then the siren will return to its previous siren tone or standby.

SERVICE
This unit is designed to provide years of reliable service under even the worst conditions. Many
times there may appear to be a problem with the unit when the true problem is in the speaker or
improper installation. The following chart shows typical symptoms and possible causes.
A blown siren fuse doesn't necessarily mean that the unit is bad. If a speaker or speaker lead is
shorted the fuse will blow before the unit is damaged. Disconnect the SPK leads and replace the
fuse. If the OUTPUT light on face of unit comes on with Wail switch activated the amplifier is OK.
Check the speaker or leads for possible shorting.
