Italian term or phrase: segnalazioni acustiche
From regulations for a tourist complex: [...] a non disturbare la quiete ed il riposo degli ospiti del complesso con schiamazzi o rumori molesti o abusando di strumenti sonori o di segnalazioni acustiche, in particolare, dalle 14.00 alle 17.00 e dalle 24.00 alle 07.00.

Most of this is OK, but what precisely do "strumenti sonori" and "segnalazioni acustiche" mean?

These are 2 terms, so I'll ask 2 questions.

I'm tempted to put "musical instruments or amplified sounds", but I am not certain that that is precise enough.

or acoustic warning devices. you may prefer acoustic with one \'c\' if you plan to use correct spelling. ;-)
