Got my Wolo 417 installed today!! little review!

Okay so installed my new air horns today, bought the Wolo Model 417 big rig air horn from amazon brand new 25 dollars,
http://www.amazon.com/Wolo-Model-417-Plastic-Trumpet/dp/B000BNH0I6/ref=cm_cmu_pg_t bought the switch from amazon for 5 so 30 bucks free shipping got it all, took me awhile to figure out how to mount it all, but i got it, gonna do a littel more tm trying to get it set up a little more solid, used alot of zip ties, i did not want to drill any holes for 30 dollar horns lol so zip ties work too ya kno, lol works awesome got them up front kinda pointing down criss cross like an X

Definitely louder than stock horn, and a totally different sound i really like it, and honestly im considering orderin another set of them and wiring them up to the same switch on the other side, but not yet lol

if you want louder, good sound, and dont wanna spend 400 on train horn set up, the wolo 417 is deff good choice, hard to mount cuz of the length of the horns, but it was worth it to me, didnt get to play much today, will tm tho do some tests see how long itll go, how far i can hear it things like that. just thought id write a little review

So, in the vid, you have 2 different "honks".

Are they both the Wolo? The second one is kinda high and "tinny" sounding, what was the first?

sorry bout that put it in the discription but forgot to put it here lol, the first is stock horn, second is the wolo, really doesnt get the sound taht it sounds like tho, just did it trying to get you a tone but it didnt work so well lol, it was taken with my iphone 3g so not the best video or audio quality lol

but as an overall comparasion the wolo is not a DEEP horn, but i checked everywere and these are the deepest you get till you go to something like a train horn, just depends were your budget is lol for me it was cheap lol and like i said i may add another set on the same switch be kinda interesting lol
