Here's some rare ones for you -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8i109CJ ... LOKYg&t=0s - Recently dug this one up out of my "Favorites" - An Amseco BZ-54VT behind a Space Age AV-32 plate. And it actually sounds good!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlZuKpu ... LOKYg&t=0s - Starts with a Wheelock AS-24, but the rest are all ES-DL1-WS-24's, which are the flush mount version of the "electronic 7002". Sound familiar?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmvdLnT ... LOKYg&t=0s - SpectrAlert Advances, followed by a huge chorus of MASS's on slow whoop.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFJVp4w ... x=229&t=0s - Faraday 6226 horn/strobes
Politicians are like 7002T's - really loud but not too bright.

End-of-line resistor (n.) - A customer who knows they have to wait in line but just wants to know if they can quickly ask a question please.

I now know what I plan to be doing in my spare time now that I know what your favorites list comprises of. XD

Can someone identify this voice-evac system for me?

I'm thinking that this is an old Pyrotronics system, but it could be something else.
All I know is it appears to have Gentex SPK4 speaker/strobes (and some Wheelock E70's as replacements).

Here's another one of these systems:
A small snippet of the message is heard at the very beginning and then the tone is heard at 2:20 (listen closely)

I've been to that hotel (Disney's BoardWalk), so here's the devices:
Pull stations: Cerberus Pyrotronics single-action (MS-51 or an addressable version)
Detectors: PE-3's or an addressable version
Signals: Gentex SPK4 speaker/strobes with some newer Gentex speaker/strobes (SSPK-series) and a few Siemens-branded Wheelock E70's (and at least one E50) as replacements. Guest rooms have Gentex GX90 mini-horns and some Wheelock MIZ's as replacements.

Can anyone try to identify the panel? It's definitely not an MXL.
