TOA Electronics Recalls SC Series Paging Horn Loudspeaker

TOA Electronics Inc., a manufacturer of commercial audio and security products, recently recalled all its SC Series Paging Horn Loudspeaker models. These models had experienced a known production defect, which is that the metal part of the speaker body may crack at position where the mounting bracket is attached due to excess zinc content in the metal. This results in an inferior ability to withstand exposure to moist air and salt, especially when located at shore and indoor pool environments. This defect may cause them to fall, possibly causing injury or damage to property. It should be noted however, that the attached speaker wire and/or a safety cable attached between the speaker and the mounting surface by the installer may help prevent the speaker from falling in most cases.

The following models have been recalled:

  • Model SC-610T with a manufacture date between 6/2008-11/2008 (date codes- 08F through 08K and with Serial # range)
  • Model SC-615  with a manufacture date between 2/2008-11/2008 (date codes- 08B through 08K and with Serial # range)
  • Model SC-630 with a manufacture date between 9/2008-11/2008 (date codes-08I though 08K and with Serial # range)
  • Model SC-630T with a manufacture date between 6/2008-11/2008 (date codes- 08F through 08K and with Serial # range)

Installers who have used these models are instructed to contact their customer and forward the customer’s name, address, telephone, e-mail and contact name along with the date of installation, number and model of speakers installed in their facility to the TOA regional sales manger. If the installers provide un-installation and reinstallation services, then these speakers can be returned to TOA for new replacement unit(s) exchange.
