Air horn guys

my brother bought this air compressor and tank
All-in-one 110 psi air compressor w/ 3 liter air tank

i think it is to small and no good. i think he wasted his money.

i was going to hook up a train horn for him but will a 3 liter tank even be enough air? or will it just be a few seconds of sound?

i had a 1.5 gallon and it lasted a good 20 seconds or more.

was going to get this horn for him for x mas but maybe i wont if his compressor is not good enough.

Train Air Horns

the top blow out specail one.

even worth it or is the tank to small. max pressure is 110 but it turns off at 105 kicks on to fill it back up at 85.

It will work, probably not enough psi either. Kinda depends on the horns too. You could easily hook it up out of the truck and see if you like it.. then craigslist it if you don't like it... I think mine is 180-200 psi...

Think of it this way, he can always plumb another tank to that too. That is what I ended up doing. i think I have 8 gallons of air on mine from two tanks...

When it comes to air horns it's GO BIG OR GO HOME!!!! I want them bad but don't have a grand to do it right!!! I want the A C to drive off the engine. I saw this in another members truck and it was awesome, with 1/2" lines his are the loudest horns I have ever heard and it didn't take 5 min to recharge. You can also run air tools which would come in handy. For those at SSS08 and 07 know the black dumped dually I am speaking of, Eddy's ride!!

I'm with NCHornet, bigger is better. I plan on setting mine up with about a 5 gallon tank and I want to set up an engine driven compressor but that will come much later... I'm just trying to get a set of horns from work right now!

I want that! Is there a kit for this? Or was it a frankenstine build? I use air for all kinds of things on my truck and my little 12v compressors take forever to charge up the 3gal tank I have. being able to run air tools off the truck would be awesome!
