Air Horns

If anyone is looking for air horns for your rig as I have been you might want to take a look at this deal at Amazon.com...

http://www.amazon.com/Wolo-810-Chall...1467321&sr=8-1

Wolo 810 Challenger dual trumpet air horns with compressor and air tank. I looked around at the Wolo web site and on other sites and found prices from around $419 on up....

Amazon has 3 left and are selling them at $156.xx with free super saver shipping.

Next time some horses rearend cuts me off they will get both "barrels" Just what I have been wanting for a long time....

I wonder if it'd fit on my scooter?

hmmmm, an air horn and a 25mm vulcan cannon.....

I like that idea

"Well officer, I honked this here air horn but they still tried to take my lane and kill me anyway so I opened up on 'em"

Yeah, I've dreamt of a Olsmobuick cannon of my own for a long time now.

Actually I wanted the real train horns that you can find on the net but my wife as much in favor as she was for some louder horns felt that they were just a bit too loud... Is there such a thing when some moron pulls out in front of you! Oh well, this was just an unbeatable deal and I plan on mounting them inside the front grill instead of on the roof. The added benefit with this kit is the little compressor comes with an air hose for airing up floaties and innertubes, etc. Won't do much to air up an RV tire but I have other plans for that in the future....

Oh Yeah!,

www.hornblasters.com
www.trainhornkits.com
www.airhornsoftexas.com

And several others. My local NAPA store carries the large 3 horn set that a lot of these guys are selling. DB rating is around 152 The Wolo horns listed above are at 132DB and are inline with most semi trucks. I have heard demos of the train horns on vehicles on Youtube though and they are real train horns and darned loud!

The Air Horns of Texas seems to be wanting quite a pretty penny for a lot of his stuff and I don't think he can even come close to some of the others but expect to pay around $400 or more for a kit of the train horns.

I love the sound of them though but the wife wasn't to excited about them. Would love to have a set on my Jeep.

A man here in Montgomery has a train horn on the front of his house. When someone drives by with a "boom box" stereo blaring, He hits the horn. The stereo shuts off REAL fast!

I saw a thing on Ripleys Beleive it or Not once about a guy who collects horns. His prize is a set off an ocean liner. He has a truck loaded with horns and pulls a trailer loaded up with horns, too. Hires himself out to parades and such.

Some of the horns will play simple music, but the highlight is the crowd counting down to hear the ocean liner blast away...for only a few second since it uses a whole lot if air and exausts its supply rather quickly.
