M1G Output 2 louder?
Posted 02 June 2012 - 04:35 AM
1) Output 2 trouble. No matter what I do here, I can't get this to stop when connecting the 44. I plugged in a conventional speaker and the trouble stopped. Should I just put a resister (2.2, I think) across the contacts and call it a day?
2) Not very much sound. And really, it's soft for an alarm, probably can't hear it next door. Output 1 is VERY loud, but that is inside. How do I make it LOUD? Should I just give up and get a ELK 45 and set to voltage out?
Maybe the issue is one of distance, the run is probably about 50 ft -- I used speaker wire for the extra gauge.
Thanks in advance.

You didn't connect the tampers to the speaker wiring, correct?
The 1RT is pretty loud when connected to OUT 2, so something sounds amiss.

As far as the speaker, it's actually a warranty replacement for a previously defective 44 (no sound at all), so I'd hope the new one isn't defective -- I'll meter the resistance on it to make sure it's good.
"You didn't connect the tampers to the speaker wiring, correct?" -- correct, not connected at all.

A ground fault or high resistance cable also has the possibility to do the same, since the impedance would be too high for the driver to drive properly.
Also, I remember something, might be OUT 1 instead, but the initial alarm volume is low, then it ramps to the maximum after something like 60 seconds. I know OUT 2 has the delay function...I might be thinking of when the M1 first came out, I'd have to dig through a bunch of PDF's for the first versions.
