This one's interesting. Looks waaay too small to be one of the aforementioned sirens. My guess is it's something homemade. Looks like it uses a motor on the bottom which drives the choppers on top.

I'm not sure if I agree with it being homemade, the quality of workmanship in this thing looks too good to be a homebrew job unless someone knew what they were doing. Regardless though, it still is a very interesting unit whatever its deal is.

I think it's a GP3 with intake horns.

I am a relatively new siren enthusiast and am trying to get pictures of the old sirens that were in my small town in New Jersey. We're close to New York, so it makes sense that we had sirens installed around the town. I only remember two; one on the roof of the police department and the other in front of my elementary school.
Unfortunately, these sirens have been removed. I believe I remember the one in front of my elementary school being an SD-10, but I have no pictures to verify this. However, there is a picture of the police department with the siren present.
Thing is, I am unsure if it is a Model 5 or 7. Any ideas?

I think it's impossible to tell if it's a 5 or 7 unless you can get close to it. I'm pretty sure the two have the same housing; unless you can get inside of the siren or relatively close, it'll be hard to tell.

Usually when people address this siren, they address it as a "Model 5/7" as it is unknown what model it is due to the abundance of similarities.

It's entirely possible but due to the rarity of Klaxon sirens in America (There probably isn't any) I would classify this as a homemade bench grinder job.

To me it looks like a H.O.R siro-drone because from what i can see the top louvers are close to each other

Picture of a srio drone (NOT MINE)

You may be right. I got another picture looking at it from a further distance. It does seem to look like that Siro-Drone.

It's most definitely a 5/7.

I just looked at it from a different angle and yes it is a 5/7

There are actually several Secomak GP3's in the US. Most of them are privately owned, though. And that motor looks WAY TOO MUCH like a GP3's motor to be a bench grinder. I think someone imported one from the UK or wherever secomak is.
