    I have a 9M loaded light bar and I am trying to figure out a controller for it. Any ideas? I have a Whelen 295HFSA5 siren controller, but was told that has to activate a bank of external relays. I guess a 295HFS5 has the relays built in. A
    Anyone have a controller that they will sell or any suggestions is welcome!!

    I'll trade you my fed sig sw300 6 switch switch box for the siren. I have most of the legends for it too. It works great and all the switches light up.

    hey man i not sure if you got it all figured out. this is the controller that i used for my 9m it has plenty of extra space that you can use for what ever you like as well. only thing that i didn't like is that you have to have relays to make it all work together. I set my light bar up so that it uses a 7pin trailer style connector that i can stick it on top of the truck while i am plowing and take it off the rest of the time and the connector is hidden neatly under the back seat. if you want PM me and i can try to get some pictures for you.

    I was able to get it all hooked up. It was my project yesterday. Works great. I was told the 9m is a low current bar, so I didnt need the relays. I hooked it all up without them, works great!
    Kudos to you for the great idea of the 7 pin plug!!

    good deal man glad to hear that you got it all together and working. I required a little special assistance from a friend that does car stereos.
