HORNS! (what do you have?)

Anyone installed some aftermarket horns on your rig? I'm looking into it. My rig looks bad and "i'll run you over" like and so forth, now I want it to sound like it too!
I was looking at the Hadley Ambassador horn, it says to give you the big rig sound. That might work nicely.
Whats your ideas and useages? Pics welcome! and stories too haha

Go with the Train Horns setup with onboard compressor!!!....But be careful you could actually give someone a Heart attack and be held liable for it!!.......Bout a thousand bucks But make NOOOOOO Mistake they will move out of your way......No exageration They will feel the vibration and concussion inside their vehicle!!! .....And then to put some icing on that Sweet Cake Give em a car full of smoke when you go by!!!

I'd say the Wolo Train Horns are the way to go, 152db is more than enough to clear anything in front of you.

Just a little note, if you want a good price on the Train Horns w/ air tank and compressor or any other air horn kit go here: www.oslights.com the owner Dave Linkenhoker is a great friend of mine, and has given me great deals on sirens, strobes and LED lightbars.

i have a K5LA which is a real train horn. soon as i get some pics posted you will see the set up. go with real train horns. once you hear a set you wont want anything else. not cheap but worth it if you want the horns to match your beast!
i can lead you in the right direction if your looking for some.

Talking horns

I put some horns on that I got at O'reillys. About 25 bucks. They are plastic, and cheap, but they do sound better than stock. They came with a little air pump - not a compressor, but a little motor. I believe it was german made. I like it.
