Does anyone have any pictures/videos of them? I’m really curious because I’d like to see a closeup of the controls and such.

There's a few of them in Red Bank, New Jersey you may be able to check out on streetview.

If you can find any, would you update us?

And also... I'm pretty sure Edwards is a Sentry dealer. Is this a different Edwards?

Edit: Here. I've found a picture. They're funky looking, with their horns pointed toward the ground.

Thank you! That's awesome that someone got closeup photos of them. And yes, Edwards is a dealer of Sentry. There's an F2 on eBay rebranded by Edwards.

No problem :)
I wonder what the point was of directing the horns toward the ground. Did they think that the sound would bounce off the ground ?
On a related note, does anyone know what these sound like?

This one has the weirdest setup I've ever seen.
I can't even see what they did here.

Also I forgot to mention the news article gives the 3 remaining locations ;)

Go to the most recent view of this one: https://www.google.com/maps/@40.3455382 ... 384!8i8192 and it seems this one is ALSO overgrown by trees.

I'd be interested in the control cabinets - I wonder how they were activated, what amplifier configuration they used, etc.; did they drive all four horns from one amplifier or four separate amplifiers?

I'm interested to hear what they sound like. In the news article, it mentions how they sounded like a glorified, louder AMBER alert. But, I'm sure if you asked any non-siren enthusiast they would say that about every siren.
