Air Horn SUPER LOUD!

This is a super loud air horn I was looking for something easy to install that would not break the bank. I only drilled one hole and used existing hole. Tapped into the existing horn wire with 1 wire clip when you press the horn on the steering wheel everything blows together. 20-30 min. install. Forget looking at the price no need to spend more, this is an easy mod. and LOUD!!@ has Train Semi sound Not Trumpet.Click image for larger version

Is it so loud that it slows down the coach?

(I beg to differ we have plenty of air supply it just doesn't come from a compressor ! )

Lo Tec - was the the same exact horn that RevJeffey posted above? Sounds great. Just one trumpet right?

I have mine in my Amazon cart now.....Just wanted to confirm it was the correct horn. Thanks.

Looks fantastic. Would you mind posting a picture of where you put i5 and the wire you hooked into? Iíd like to put one of those in my Axis when I get home from this trip. Thanks.

Hi no mine are Kleinns. It's two trumpets running off the coach air. They're the 210 model I think. It's on the youtube link. I got them on eBay but they're pretty common.

Thanks Lo Tec. I order the Horn he suggested above.

REVJEFFREY - Looking at the reviews on Amazon some are suggesting to hook it up with its own power source. One person mentioned that the factory horn was blowing fuses and another commented it would not provide enough power so the horn didnít sound right.

How long have you had your hooked up directly to the factory horn? Do you know the fuse size (for the horn) on the OEM fuse panel?

Perhaps it sufficient from Thor. But I guess it would not be that hard to hook it up with a relay.

Thanks. I guess I will figure it out SAT when I get mine.

I agree completely with Amazon. Because you have a small air compressor with this horn, you need a separate circuit. Plus you should run it parallel so if the air horn should ever go down, the stock horn will still blow. If it was as loud as my Stebel you would never hear the stock horn when the air horn was added. Nothing worse then hitting your horn and nothing! That is how I wired up my motorcycle. I even made a custom plug and play wiring harness for other use. I would not just tap in the horn circuit to power an air horn as Amazon reviews stated.
You are correct in adding a relay to it.

Air horns are very loud. When we had one on our former DP, I learned to use it with caution, as it can scare nearby drivers into doing something that is super stupid.

Thanks, Thats what im thinking. I wonder how they are connecting up the power supply...from the OEM fuse box or directly to the battery then used the factory horn to turn the relay on? Or I guess I can use a seperate button for the air horn.

Yep, I can see that happening. I try and honk the horn when it "looks" like they might be a problem - esp. when you can see them though their window and they are not even looking at you but still rolling in your way. Half the time messing with a phone.

But sometimes you hit the horn right at the last minute - so part of me want to hook them together since that will be my automatic reaction. Sometime Im honking at them before I realized im even on the button. LOL Not sure if a seperate button will work for me.
