Carson Introduces The New M-Series Mechanical Tone Siren Line
Carson Sirens is proud to announce the release of the M-Series Mechanical tone siren line. The M-Series combines a classic Mechanical Tone, new Carson “Stutter” Air Horn, and sleek, silver look with Carson’s popular selection of siren tones and the rugged dependability that you expect from a Carson siren. The result…a siren line that takes warning sound performance to the next level.
What sets the M-Series apart is the authentic reproduction of both a true Mechanical tone and a “Stutter” air horn sound. This combination offers an effective alternative to the costly Mechanical sirens and air horns that are traditionally installed on fire rescue apparatus. By eliminating the need for an exterior siren, as well as air tanks, compressors and tubing, these compact sirens are easy to install, space-saving and require much less amp draw while still delivering that distinctive “Big Engine” sound that makes drivers instinctively pull over.
The M-Series line includes both console and remote mount units and is available in four premium models: the SA-400M Classic Mechanical, SA-430M Patriot Mechanical, SA-441M MagForce Mechanical and SA-500M Cruiser Mechanical. Each model comes with a no-hassle 5-year warranty.
For almost 40 years, Carson has built a reputation of consistent quality and rugged reliability in all of its products and services. The M-Series further enhances this reputation by raising the standard of siren technology and design. Look for the M-Series today!
