I've noticed that there have been alot of ?'s about train horns and such, and people's opinions on certain setups and all, so I figured we should make a thread and maybe it'll get stickied, so people will have a reference to look to when they are wanting some horns.

If you wanna post, please post a video so we can all hear what it sounds like and say what make horns / how many / ect....

So I'll start.

Here's my setup:

1 Grover StutterTone FireTruck Horn mounted behind front front bumper
Whelen Alpha Series Sirens - 100w speaker mounted behind grille.

Mad Maxx, You have too much air pressure going threw the air horn, try setting the air pressure to 115psi and tightening the screws on the back of the horn. I have the same Grover horn and it sounds much better after you do the changer, (deeper tone)

I put together my own kit from various vendors on fleabay.

Mounted tank above the driveshaft, compressor in the frame rail and horns in front of the passenger reat tire. Each item is a tight fit, but they do fit.
