These klaxons were produced for the US Navy
in the 1940's. Usually employed in fleet submarines for dive
and as cease fire alarms on other Navy ships. These klaxons
were made by Federal Electric Chicago Illinois. They are 20
VDC 3.5 amp and produce the distinctive Ah-Ooh-Ga sound. We
have both cast iron and cast bronze versions. When first
produced in 1940, the early versions of theses horns were cast
in bronze and Federal switched to cast iron later in the war
to preserve bronze for other wartime uses. The horn projector,
top plate and electrical plug(s) are steel in all cases.
These horns were war
surplus and have not seen service but have been in storage
since the 1940's. Dimensions: 61/2" H x 7
1/2" L x 7" W; weight 16lbs.
Federal rates these
horns for an output of 113dB(A) at 1 meter and 103dB(A) at 10
We believe that these
horns are the only free availble units; there is a limited
quantity of them.
