    Unitrol Sirens

    Regarding the Touchmaster sirens except for the Delta models, the pitch and rise and fall rate of the wail changed around the year 2000. The yelp pitch and rate did not change. Regarding the 80K sirens, yes they can be used with any Unitrol brand controller or even an aftermarket. The 80K is...

    Which of the Low Frequency Siren Systems is your favorite?

    Have to agree with Wailer on this. The older Federal Interceptor series 2D or Director series 1D have the nostalgic slower lower pitched wail and yelp sounds. Also the old SP and Dietz brand sirens had great low tones.

    Federal FIRE BALL Family History

    The vinyl eye shields were made very well but they did retain the heat generated by the bulb during extended interior usage.

    Who made the best rotating halogen dash light?

    I've always been partial to my original vintage Federal Fireball FB-1. The halogen version is obviously brighter but it rotates much slower than the old gear driven model.

    Unitrol Omega to be Discontinued May 2016

    I've been running Unitrol sirens for 30+ years. They are best sounding sirens out there in my opinion and the original Touchmasters, Omegas and 80K's are extremely reliable. Sorry to hear that Federal is doing this but I wasn't a big fan of Unitrol being bought out by them years ago.

    Interesting garage sale save

    The old Heathkit sirens sound great and were very reliable back in the day. We had one which was built by one of our old ex-chiefs (now deceased) in a 1967 Cadillac Superior Ambulance. They were 58-watt rated but hooked up to a Federal CP-25 speaker, the siren was LOUD!

    Replace Whelen 64 Series Strobes with LEDs?

    I would strongly recommend sticking with Whelen too. I would go with the largest Whelen LED lighthead model possible that will properly fit the existing 64 series openings, use the existing strobe power cables and connect them to a Whelen external synchronized LED flasher unit. Good Luck!

    Unity collection

    I always loved the Unity Beacons. The local county PD used to run a Unity "Visibar" styled bar with twin 2 bulb beacons (not synched) using Red Spitfire domes which gave off a very distinct visual back in the 70's. The center of the bar had a Unity chrome plated speaker similar to a CP-25 and...

    Looks good except for that monstrosity on the top! Too bad the siren isn't a Unitrol Omega 90 Dual-Mode system but the Delta is OK.

    2015 Suburban Install

    Another overdone Hatzolah responder! The exterior mounted ION on the hood looks ridiculous! To answer Surgical, yes Blue is only legal to display on the rear of an authorized emergency vehicle in New York State as per the recently updated vehicle and traffic laws. As a side note, I think GM...
