The Hurricane started off with a square horn that ended with two poles where the horn attaches to the chopper enclosure, These were produced until 1973, when a larger, rounder horn was made that was a true exponential horn. The siren was popular with towns siren. The corporation continued production until 1980, when it was replaced with the P-50 siren.
