Well those were the alarms there and I can't help it if they remove the video before other people can see it so I'm sorry. It wasn't all that interesting but it was to me.

Here's something unusual: 4040's in code 3 -

Those actually sound a lot more like 4051s rather than just 4040s but it might just be me.

Simplex 2901-9838s on what I think are 2903-9101 plates as well as some TrueAlerts and some ceiling mounted Simplex 4903-9252 horns. The system is in code-3.

I think you might be right about that being a 4051.

Compared to the voices and the music (if it wasn't edited in), the 4051s sound REALLY quiet.

It certainly is possible for a horn to actually be quieter when you would least expect it so that might be it or it could be because since it is sounding in code-3, it sounds more quiet than it actually is.

I can make out the Simplex 4903-9219 as that sound has been ingrained in my brain. I'm assuming the other horn might be a Simplex GX-90.

Simplex 2901-9838's on 2903-9101's, along with a faint TrueAlert in the background:

A lockdown announcement. My guess is that this is an example of a Wheelock Safepath using its on-board MT tone generator. In any case, it's rather unsettling to hear such a familiar tone playing this loud.

I could just imagine what it would sound like to have the 4100U whoop play through a giant voice.

It's not impossible. Have you seen the gigantic Simplex speakers? I think the model is MA-2 if I recall correctly.

High Point Solutions Stadium (the main Rutgers football stadium located on Busch Campus in Piscataway) has a Simplex system with a bunch of the big bullhorn speakers, along with Wheelock RSSWP strobes, and the 4100U whoop is used. One day, I could literally hear the system being tested from a mile away, across the river on the College Avenue campus. Didn't even realize where it was coming from at first, as the closest voice evac system was in the nearby dining hall, and that wasn't going off. Then it finally dawned on me. I can only imagine how loud it is when you're actually in there.

My mother actually goes to this mall a lot. I think its the one that is in Warwick right? He should have gone to the Old Navy I think? They have Federal Signal 450Ds with I-strobes on the ceiling. The TrueAlerts were coming from one of the smaller stores.

When exactly did System Sensor come out with those type of alarms in there? I can't remember ever seeing them before.

LOL that tone was the tone my elementary school used as an outdoor bell to signify that recess or a fire drill was over. Indoors, the tone was a Wheelock MT bell. That REALLY brings me back.

The ONLY video I could find in 4 PAGES that has electromechanical horns or isn't a Roblox fire drill. The alarms are:
Simplex 2903-9101/2901-9838 horn/strobes
Simplex 4903-9104/2901-9846 horn/strobes
Simplex 4903-9252 horn/strobe
Simplex 4903-9422

Simplex 2120 whoop with indiscernible speaker/strobes (probably rectangular 4903's).

Another 2901-9838+2901-9838 combo. Is there SERIOUSLY nothing on YouTube except Roblox videos?
