Because the "P" is silent.

That is a really cool set up and nice system you have put up! It reminds me of when I was in elementary school! Awesome job on this but I do have to ask why the pitch changed almost halfway through?

I explain in more detail near the end of the video what caused the pitch change, but basically the 4901-9805 cut out/jammed momentarily, making a quieter low-pitched buzz before returning back to the louder normal pitch after a few moments.

Hmm, so you were the one that bought that Gamewell horn strobe from Samson? :wink:

Nice test!

Very cool test! The horns sound lovely in this video. I've seen a nearly identical setup at the Boston Fire Museum, which has an older Flex-series system.

I also absolutely love your videography style. Everything in your videos is well-timed and well-framed, with smooth transitions, steady filming, and no excessively long parts; these qualities make for an extremely pleasant viewing experience. It's a breath of fresh air in comparison to some other fire alarm videos on YouTube.

Thank you! I've carried over a lot of skills from general photography/videography into my fire alarm videos. I'm glad it makes an enjoyable viewing experience!
