I put my horns where the space tire goes. No where else to put a set

Bama, what kind of compressor/tank setup do you have driving those Leslies?

PSI?

Thanks!

I have a ViAir 450 continuous duty compressor with a pressure switch that cuts on when pressure gets down to 110psi and use an 8 gallon tank.

The pressure switch lets me build up to 150psi.

I actually need another tank and another compressor wouldn't hurt.

If I hit the horns for about 3 seconds, it dumps about 40psi of air.

Yea but they are crazy loud for those 3 seconds...

My horns, compressor, and tank are all mounted on the passenger frame rail, I have a long bed so there is plenty of room. I am also running a ViAir 450c.

Sounds like a nice setup...I was looking at the ViAir stuff the other day. Mind sharing what you paid for that setup? PM is fine if you prefer.

Any tips on finding a set of Leslies - got any connections down there in Albertville?

Not too far away. If I ever make it down there from Scottsboro, I'll have to holler so I can hear them.

Thanks!
