Loud Horn(14$)

Well my horn is being wack sometimes and sounds like a ford festiva sometimes..
so I purchased a new one at harbor freight.. Its not installed yet but
I tested it.. and holy crap is it alot louder than I expected..

Edit... I cant seem to find my exact horn I purchased on sale In-store..
this one is pretty much the same.

those will be a high pitch sound...

just be careful where you put em being plastic the engine gets pretty hot..

if you want a big rig sound..go get like a 2 gallon tank, a small compressor and get some metal chrome horns off ebay..type in Air horns..ive got a 5 gallon tank compressor and 13 trumpets on my truck lol..very loud but once you get big it starts gettin expensive..
