Show off your air horns!

Thinking about getting a couple semi horns from a local salvage yard, and curious how everyone is setting up their horns..

Also curious what everyone did for on board air. On my RC rig, im running a York compressor filling a 3.5 gallon tank in the bed.. works great for tires after crawling but not sure how it would do for horns and tires on my f250.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Show off your air horns!

Are you using a small electric compressor? What size tank is that? Im thinking about mounting my tank under the seat with a chuck for air tools if needed.

Pass Side, Compressor is in a box in the upper left against the frame, 200psi, 5gal, Viair 380C, LOUD AS HELL!

A couple years back, these could be "sniped" on eBay from Siege Engineering, for like $200-250.

Re: Show off your air horns!

Nice. I browsed fleabay earlier and saw a few kits for around $150. But think im going to run 2 semi horns, and 2 small tanks (one for each horn) and a small compressor. Idk if I wanna go electric, or belt driven like the old York.

I'm running viair 380c, 5 gallon tank, Nathan k3la's. I'm glad I went with the Nathan's, last thing you wanna do is buy the cheap ones that ain't loud and won't meet you expectations and buy the real deals and waste that money buying the cheapie a first.

Here's a clip of a quick blast:

Show off your air horns!

Thanks bud. Yeah, just north of the Dallas in the Garland/ Richardson area.

Having a longbed is nice, I put my low profile toolbox right infront of it, and I have a tuxedo bed cover that keeps it hidden. I built the frame out of angle iron from Home Depot, grinded it down and painted it with rustoleum flat black, it's holding up good.

Check out realtrainhorns.net, good family owned company, I dealt with Luke Jackson the owner, nice guy. Lifetime warranty on the horns and internals- hard to beat that! I know they're pricey but they'll be the last horns you buy unless you want more or want to upgrade.
