Default Q2B mounting question.....

Had a question posed to me this morning about the Q2 that will be installed this week-end......

"Is there supposed to be a gasket between the siren mount and the roof ??"
similer to the mount on the CP 25's ?? (rubber)

I dont recall seeing one....but then again I never really paid that much attention.....

Thank you....

I did not use a gasket when mounting my "Q" mainly because I was not able to find one and did not want to make one. I used a good bit of clear silicone which seemed to work just fine.

I think I answered my own question...I was able to locate the mounting instructions from Federals website....it only calls for 2 GROMMETS.....
and then the hardware......

Default Grounding

I recall running a 3 gauge wire to the Q. The mounting without gaskets allows the unit to ground itself. Don't forget the fuse!
My first Q worked by grounding it via a button on the floor. The Q had power all the time but only grounded by said button. I'm sure you'll hear from more experienced characters than myself.
GOOD LUCK
KEV

Default Q2b

Thanks Kevin for the information....

I am hoping that we wont have to run a new wire and fuse/relay..there already is a Fed 66 that will be replaced......

Same goes for the grounding part...its going on a Superior.....so I am hoping the grounding part is already there.....

By the way...how is your "project coming along.... ?? Havent heard much lately....

Thanks again,
Jim
