So long story short my BKO has a whelen siren/PA system as of today.

The system has the capability to broadcast radio communications through the external speaker. It needs input in speaker wire form. I would like to use on sets of preamp outputs on the back of my radio for this.

Anyone know how to take a pre-amp signal and convert it to speaker wire type input? Or am I just dreaming here and need to splice into a speaker wire

Thanks in advance.

Looking for RCA jack to positive/negative copper wire. The only inputs for the radio are the mic and two sopper wires (Blue to be exact).

I figured if there was an easy way to do so, It would be simpler then taping into a speaker and would be really easy to remove later if needed. I guess it would be easy enough to tap into a speaker wire, but I am a little OCD sometimes.

Would the converter you posted go the other way? Meaning from RCA to +/-. It looks like it is made to convert from speaker to RCA originally.

In this case, signal can travel both ways, there is no "one way" situation. What kind of radio do you have? Are we talking CB, or VHF/UHF?
Neither. This is a whelen siren box. It doesn't transmit anything over the airways, just through the speaker. Think like the type in an ambulance or police car.

Although if I can find the right switch I might enable it to broadcast CB traffic through the speaker as well. But that is something I can worry about later if I get motivated to do so.
