Some are saying elsewhere this was a faked photo from Tuscaloosa Alabama and that this came up elsewhere on the board.

This is not a fake photo I have the original at my house. This photo was published in a W.S. Darley Magazine back in the 1980s. I believe the caption was "typical siren installation" or something. Fun fact was that the Alertronic 5000 was already discontinued by the time that issue was published.

You're thinking of that time someone faked a recording of an AL-5000 a few years ago. it was an obvious fake because it used the photo from the famous ACA brochure. he did make it sound pretty real though, at least from what i remember.

Yea but wasn't it debunked because it was using a realistic ACA/ASC sound from out of its time period?
