    Hi All,

    It's been a long while since I've been on here - 2nd time round on an alarm installation and a few things have changed (e.g. EOL). Almost done, just the bell and an internal speaker to wire in before the big switch on (and subsequent fault finding no doubt)...

    I 'inherited' the internal speaker from the system that I've just stripped out (everything else went to the tip). It's 16ohm, and I was intending to use it as an internal sounder on alarm.

    I've read a number of threads on here, and got myself clear, confused, clear and confused again...

    The speaker isn't anything fancy - just +ve and -ve terminals (no tamper). In order for the speaker/sounder to sound when the alarm is triggered, am I wiring -ve to SPK- on the PCB, and +ve to +12v on the bell strip? Just want to reassure myself that I won't overload anything.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Is it just a speaker or has it got a pcb fitted in the box ? If it's a speaker wire to speaker terminals if not cut out the pcb and wire to the speaker terminals ...

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, just a speaker. Nothing else (although I'm now wondering if I should have invested in something a little newer).

    The reason I'm confused is because there's only one terminal for speaker on the control panel (SPK-). Even the Texecom instructions which came with the kit shows you wiring a speaker to 2 speaker terminals (+ and -), which I'm sure I did the last time I fitted an alarm (over 10 years ago). And hence the question about where I put the +ive lead from/to the speaker - there's a few alternatives and no obviosuly labelled terminal...
