Federal Signal’s Modulator High Powered Speaker Array offers the same proven technology as the original Modulator with the exception of a smaller compact chassis. Modulator provides a flat frequency response up to 2000Hz producing intense warning signals and digital voice messaging over a large area. The Modulator design enables the siren to produce a high sound level and intelligible voice communications.

The innovative omni-directional electronic Modulator speaker array consists of modules that utilize four 100 watt drivers. It also provides clear voice communication and offers warning signals which are produced by Federal Signal’s UltraVoice™ electronic controller and amplifier system. Custom tones and professionally recorded voice messages for the UltraVoice controller are available and can be purchased upon request.

The Modulator High Powered Speaker Array combined with the UltraVoice controller is ideal for community/municipal, industrial and military applications where immediate instruction is necessary. The MOD6032 and MOD6048 have been replaced by the MOD8032B, which is shorter, lighter and more compact.

The Modulator and UltraVoice controller can be networked via radio, IP, landline, cellular and/or satellite communications. Powering is available in AC, DC, or solar. The system typically operates from batteries which are charged from either AC or Solar. Federal Signal can also provide customized solutions to fit your special applications.
