    Just got mine today and bench testing it before I put it on. How are you guys with the permenant mounts hooking switches up? I am going to run a on/off toggle to power the bar, and then a momentary push button to the white wire to change flash patterns. Tried this on the bench and only able to change pattern once upon every power up. If I apply the 12v momentary button the white wire again nothing happens until I switch the unit off and then on. Then it will change flash pattern one more time. Is this the way its suppose to operate or am I doing something wrong?

    Other than that its super bright!

    I have the sound off universal haws and the LED3s and to change the patterns you have to ground the white wire momentarily.

    Manual says to apply 12v to white wire for 2 seconds to change flash pattern. Going to call today and see whats the fix.

    Called SoundOff and the tech told me thats the way its suppose to operate. Now I gotta find a 3 way switch with momentary on 1 side.

    I have the mini pinnacle perm mount. I just picked the pattern I liked on the bench, then installed it with a toggle switch so I can no longer change patterns. I had your same question and when I called this was their suggestion. Not being able to change patterns doesn't bother me.

    I just have an on/off switch. The white wire is not connected to anything. When I turn the light on it's always the same pattern and I can't change it.
