This one’s a little harder, but what alarm may’ve been installed with this “backbox contraption”. I’ve seen a few of these around my school.

Looks like a 4040 or 4050 horn or a bell may have been here.

What’s a Sip Drill? Never heard of that.
It's where you go into the building with all doors and windows closed and they shut down the HVAC system and fans, as if it were for a Hazardous Materials Incident. I did these in my grade school years, and they were called "Code Yellow".

Re: What is the loudest fire alarm you've heard?

For electronic alarms, I'd say the Wheelock MT set to continuous horn and the Gentex Commander 2 & 3 set to Mechanical tone. For mechanical horns, I'd go with the Simplex 2901-9833/FOS 6120+2903 and Federal Signal 450D+VALS.

Re: What panels do you guys like

Mine would be the Thorn/Autocall TFX & CL series panels which were the panel of choice for much of Volusia County in the 80s-early 2000s. Also the newer EST3X and Simplex 4100ES panels are a fav of mine.
