Default Federal PA300 siren diagram

I have a PA 300 and the wiring diagrams I have found (in the owners manual) don't match what is on the siren. The first thing is that the diagram shows the female harness. Some of the fittings are square and some have rounded bottoms. They don't match my siren. Next, the the wire colors given in the schematic don't match the harness that came with the siren. This harness has yet to be connected to anything.
Any help would be appreciated!!!
Kevin

Don't hook anything up until you are sure of your wiring its very easy to blow the output diodes with a wrong hook up. For $11.36 YOU CAN BUY A NEW PLUG AND WIRING ON EBAY. https://www.ebay.com/i/282118958848?chn=ps

Contact Federal Siren, and ask for the technical hotline. Give them the serial number, and they probably can give you the exact schematic for your unit. I needed a wiring diagram for a Federal Siren about 10 years ago, and this is how I got mine.
