Horns

Ok so I'm hoping this will be my last thread on air horns... Well til after I put my new tanks in..

But here it is now.

New Freightliner gauge

1/2in OD hard line throughout...

poweraire.com fittings as well as a few compression fittings

Anderson Brothers 2way quick release valve

Viair 380c compressor

5gal 125psi tank

Here's inside the cab and you can see the loss of air from blowing them once.

And here's outside the truck... I know it may not seem louder, keep in mind I was in the parking lot at school. I'm dead serious, these things are really loud now. WAY louder with the 1/2in line. Vids don't do it justice, but here's their tone. Keep in mind, I can make a cow get up off the ground and run on the highway passing it on the other side of the road... Just so you know lol The 30in horn chimes in a LOT faster now... Since I put the splitter at the rear instead of splitting it at the valve. I posted pics up from before on it.

If you turn it up, you can hear it echo off stuff about 1/4mi around me lol...

ENJOY!

5 gal and only 125 psi? i have the 380c compressor, and my tank holds 200+ psi.

i really like that gauge inside the cab though.

It's a cheap *** tank... I'm gonna get shanes 150psi tanks this weekend.. Although people say you can run over 150 on them...

If you want those gauges... I know a fellow member on here that has a few... I told him to get extras haha... Dual pressure... They only go to 150 though

either way, you've got yourself a pretty nice set up.

Hey thanks man... If you want PM shane on shipping for one of those... I actually have another gauge.. I hit the calibration thing inside it though and it's about 30psi off but the gauge goes to 240psi so If it read 240 on the gauge you'd be lookin at 210 in the tank... I dunno if that interests you or not.. PM for my details if you want, if not that's cool too... I'll add it has 6-5mm leds on the back of it and a 194 inverted led... ALL BLUE lit.

Dakota digital sells one that does up to 400 psi, it is expensive tho (~$100 for gauge and sending unit).



Nice horns Tre, I just got some on my truck too
