Train Horns

Hello to all... I have been looking into getting Air train Horns for my truck. Can anyone recommend what and where to get them? I have come across several brands, from $200 to $1500... for complete kits. I want something nice... thanks to all....

I got the seige engineering kit. The horns sound great but I had several problems. The pressure gauge broke after a couple weeks but that could have been a rock or something. The pressure switch stopped working after a couple weeks and the pneaumatic switch would kill my truck every 20 or so times I pushed the button. I emailed them and not even an hour later they called me and said the new parts are on the way. I got all of the parts and reinstalled everything. The only problem now was my truck would die every 20 or so times I activated the horns again. So I tried an IR industrial switch I had laying around and everything is fine now. I have no idea how the switch was killing my truck and I haven't emailed them again about the issue since I fixed it. Customer service is top notch but I'm not sure about some of the parts yet.....

I have had a similar experience with them as well. Setup came w/ missing parts and bad solenoid. Would avoid all together.

Give Raul a call, he'll hook you up... The hornblasters is a popular choice for a reason. Never heard any complaints about them.

installed the hornblasters kit with the 5 gallon tank and viair 400 compressor. really nice product and complete. everything seemes real high quality and install was simple. I should have gone with the 3 gallon tank as the 5 gallon didnt really have an easy mount under the cab but looks sick in the bed.

I got the Omega train horns. I'm pretty sure it's the same ones that Raul posted. I just got them today so I'll have to let you know how they are

Yep. Brand new out of the box the pressure switch lasted for 5 minutes then broke. There is a reason its cheap. Cheap Taiwan crap. I ended up selling the kit for more than what I bought it for. I have the 36129 kit and its great everything works great and sounds alot better than the Siege kit. Plus the Vi-air is much nicer compressor and it seems quieter.
