    You're right...it is a bogus question....

    Aside from it being a bogus question.... sirens are not manufactured for specific vehicles. Thus there is no such thing as a specific siren for Crown Victorias or anything else.

    The trivia hounds out there will probably note that there are, however, model-specific siren speakers designed to fit behind specific grilles, but they have no practical bearing on sound or pitch.

    If you really gotta know, I'd suggest finding a PD site and asking there.

    I'm not sure, but they sound like SHO ME to me. I don't know why sirens and lights are such forbidden topics...

    Relax. Its just the question is rather whacker-ish.

    I dont know, but since they have Federal lightbars they probably have Federal sirens. Most agencies that buy in bulk do that. They have bid contracts for complete systems from one supplier.
