MOTORCYCLE LOCATION
A common location for the SA-361 remote amplifier on a motorcycle is in the saddle bags. Make
sure road flares are kept away from the amplifier in a separate container or compartment. The
chemicals in the flares may corrode the amplifier and circuitry.
OPTION SWITCHES
An internal 8-position DIP switch on the circuit board may be changed to select various options.
Accessing Option Switches - the DIP switch is located just behind the front panel of the amplifier. Use a 7/64” allen wrench to remove the 4 corner screws and front panel.
Two-Tone - Replace Phaser tone with Two-Tone by turning on the switch labeled "T-T".
Phaser Disable - Disable Phaser and Two-Tone by turning on the switch labeled "P_I".
Horn Disable - Disable Horn tone by turning on the switch labeled "H_I". Horn will be replaced
with Phaser.
Siren Tone Disable - Disable all siren tones (except Horn) by turning on the switches labeled
"P_I" and “T-T”.
Auxiliary Phaser - The auxiliary input normally activates Horn tone, turn on the switch labeled
“AUX_F1” to activate momentary Phaser tone instead.
Horn Ring Cycler 2 (HRC2) - While the siren is in standby, the auxiliary input can cycle through
Wail, Yelp, and Phaser tones by repeatedly activating the auxiliary input. Turn on the switch labeled “AUX_F2” to enable this feature. See OPERATION section for further details.
Auxiliary Polarity - Auxiliary is normally activated with positive input. Turn off the switch labeled
“AUX_P” for negative activation.
The following options should only be used on the SA-361.
Remote Switch Polarity - The remote switch inputs (White, Yellow, Blue, and Green leads) are
normally activated with negative input. Turn on the switch labeled “INPT_P” for positive activation
on all remote switch inputs.
Motorcycle Mode - The Wail and Yelp remote switch inputs (White and Yellow leads) normally
activate the Wail and Yelp modes of operation. Motorcycle mode changes the Wail input to Wail/
Yelp toggle while the Yelp input is changed to activate Standby. Turn on the switch labeled
“MOT_M” to enable this feature. See OPERATION section for further details.

the vehicle battery. The unit is provided with an in-line
fuse. Failure to adequately crimp splices can result in
improper operation or burning the 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 connec- CONNECTIONS AT REAR OF UNIT
tors for installation on the vehicle. Tape insulate lead to
prevent accidental shorting and activation.
Siren Enable Connection (orange lead) - This is like a power switch for the unit. Connect to a
positive circuit controlled by the vehicle ignition switch, usually a terminal at the vehicle fuse block.
The required current is low (15mA typ.). Permanent power connection is not recommended as
this keeps unit on unattended and may drain battery.

The SA-360 does not necessarily need the orange Siren Enable and violet Auxiliary Input
leads electrically connected. The switches on the face of the unit will power up the amplifier when
activated. The Siren Enable lead is required for the Auxiliary Input to function when the “YELP STANDBY - WAIL” switch is in standby.
The SA-361 must have the orange Siren Enable lead electrically connected and activated
when siren tones are required. The violet Auxiliary Input lead does not need to be electrically
connected if this feature is not used.
SA-361 Remote Switch Connections - The optionally
supplied remote panel is connected to the amplifier using
butt splices, #22 lead wire and 3/16” quick-connect terminals (supplied loose). The adjacent diagram shows the
proper lead color/terminal connections. The center terminal of each switch should be connected to negative VDC
on vehicle. See Remote Switch Polarity under OPTION
SWITCHES section if positive connection is preferred.
User supplied switches may require different connections.
The “YELP - STANDBY - WAIL” switch should be a SPDT
ON - OFF - ON. The “MAN/PHSR - HORN” switch should
be a momentary SPDT (ON) - OFF - (ON).
In Motorcycle Mode the white and yellow input leads provide a different function. The switch used for these leads
should be a momentary SPDT (ON) - OFF - (ON) or two
momentary SPST OFF - (ON) switches for each lead.
See OPERATION section for further details.

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. See OPTION SWITCHES section. Two-Tone
is two alternating frequencies like a European.
AUXILIARY INPUT FUNCTIONS (orange siren enable lead must be activated)
The switch or horn ring attached is intended to be momentary. Depending on the Auxiliary
Phaser option setting, activating this input gives a momentary Horn or Phaser tone. 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.

POWER ON/OFF
Power is turned on with the orange siren enable lead. POWER indicator on face illuminates.
REMOTE SWITCH INPUTS
With the control switches connected as described in ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS, the functions
are the same as described for the SA-360 above.
MOTORCYCLE MODE
The remote amplifier may be setup to work with switches on a motorcycle. Turn on the Motorcycle Mode option switch for this mode. See OPTION SWITCHES section. The white lead input
will change to Wail/Yelp mode while the yellow lead input changes to Standby mode. Momentarily
pressing the Wail/Yelp switch will bring the unit out of Standby into Wail mode. Repeatedly pressing the Wail/Yelp switch will toggle modes between Wail and Yelp. Pressing the Standby switch
will return the unit to Standby mode. The remaining features, options, and inputs including Auxiliary will function the same as normal mode.

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 in-line fuse doesn't necessarily mean that the unit is bad. If a speaker or speaker lead is
shorted the in-line fuse will blow before the unit is damaged. Disconnect the SPKR leads and
replace the fuse. If the OUTPUT light comes on with siren power enabled and Wail mode selected it is OK. Check the speaker or leads for possible shorting.
