Whelen Competitor Series Hide-A-Way Strobe Kit - S690CCCC

Increase visibility. Reduce your risk of accident. Add the impact of CometFlash® strobe lighting to your vehicle. "Hide-A-Way" strobe lamps provide powerful stand alone warning protection for the unmarked cruiser and adds another level of lighting safety for marked vehicles. Smallest strobe lamp assembly available.

The hide away kit includes Whelen's CSP690 6-outlet, 90 watt power supply, 4 clear HA238 hide-a-way strobe tubes and 4 15' strobe cables, screws, and connectors. The power supply has 10 flash patterns. CometFlash, Triple, Double, Rapid, Action, Moduflash, Microburst I, Microburst II, Microburst III & LongBurst.

Something to consider before ordering this kit:

This Whelen hide away kit includes:
(1) Whelen 6 outlet, 90 watt CSP690 strobe power supply with selectable flash patterns
(4) Whelen HA238 CLEAR hide-a-way strobe tubes
(4) Whelen 15-foot strobe cables with connectors

You may need longer strobe cables than the supplied 15 foot lengths.
If this kit is being installed in the brake/reverse lights and front marker lights on a small sedan or compact car, the 4 included 15 foot cables should reach.

However if this kit is being installed in the front/rear of a four door pickup, we recommend (2) 20 foot and (1) 25 foot strobe cables for the back strobes and the front strobe furthest from the power supply as the 15' typically do not reach. This depends on where the strobe power supply is installed in the vehicle.

So if the power supply is being installed on a truck under the back seat on the driver side, we would recommend:
1 - 15' for front driver light
1 - 20' for front passenger light
2 - 20' or 25' for back lights (depending on bed length)

This all depends on where the power supply and strobe lights are being installed but just some generally guidance.

It would be better to have cables that are too long than too short.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you would like longer strobe cables in place of the 15' cables let us know in the comments section during checkout and we will adjust the difference in price between the 2 lengths.

Here is what you you will need and some of our recommendations:
- a switch
- fused (15 amp) +12V wire (14 to 12 gauge depending on length of run to power point)
- Ground wire (14 to 12 gauge depending on length of run, should be same length as +12V run)
- trigger wire(s) (14 gauge), run from your switch to power supply to activate the lights.

If you want to activate all of the lights on 1 switch, then 1 trigger wire run from the switch to the CSP690 power supply will suffice. Just place all strobes on outlets 3, 4, 5, and 6 on the CSP690 Power Supply.

If you want to separate the front lights from the back lights, you will need either 2 switches or a DPDT (Double pole double throw) switch and run 2 trigger wires and put the strobes on outlets 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 on the CSP690 Power Supply.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us we are here to help.
