Hello, I am currently using the elk m1gold security system.

I would like to add an additional speaker/siren outdoors.

My current configuration looks like the following:

out 3: elk strobe ELK-SL1B -- used for various projects
Operating Voltage: 12 V DC
Current Draw:210 mA

out 2: Speaker that came with the elk m1gold package (ELK-73)
Impedance: 8 Ohm
Rating: 20 Watts Nominal

out 1: two (2) ELK-73 Echo Speaker connected in parallel
Impedance: 8 Ohm
Rating: 20 Watts Nominal

what would be a good elk siren/speaker to add and where to add it?

Thanks.

Dwalder,
You had better check the current draw on the M1 system with everything in alarm. Looks like you are reaching the power supply limit on the M1. You may have to add an additional power supply like the ELK P624 or P1240 for additional current. Any of the ELK sirens would work good.
