HAHAHAHAHAH and you were all stoked to install this???



I think for the train horn, you need some sort of airtank and compressor. Well...the REAL loud kind. My neighbor had it in his F250 and it really did sound like a trainhorn, loud as hell.

My buddy had a 4' train/boat horn in his 1997 Camry. He had some tank (looked like a propane tank, for the BBQ you know?) in the back to power it. Thing was F*in' loud!

OPer - you sound so sad in your video. So much disappointment/despair in your tone.. :(

aim it downward, and buy a pair of used BMW Horns, or the regular hella horns. That's my combo and it sounds MUCH better than just the air horns by itself

perfect sound if you were riding on a unicycle and had a big red nose. :D
i might as well get an ebay body kit, get red H badges and altezzas, some ebay springs and roll on red 14" hubcaps JUST to match these lame horns. :(

if you want a deep horn, not a high pitch train horn, get something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiWNw0A1Ijg
just listen to the magnitude of the echoes for an indication of how devasting this would sound.
HAHAHAHA HOLY SH!T THATS INSANE

I really don't think it's that bad. I had the same setup as you.

First, I had the hella airhorns with stock horns at first. It sounded just like yours, high pitched and really ghey!

THen I unplugged the stock horns and relied on the air horns. The decible was GREAT, saved my ass on the highway quite a few times from Trucks switching lanes.....

Then i bought a set of BMW horns, combined with the Hella air horns, the sound reached a point where it's perfect for me.

Now I have a set of hella supertone 85115 in conjunction with the Air horns. I must tell you, these two combined, the tone kicks ASS! and it is EXTREMELY loud.... Few days ago, someone was tring to make a UTurn and almost hit me in the process, then after I stomped on the horn, he came to a SCREECHING hault, and refused to move! lol

So I think you should consider that. The air horns are not meant to be used by itself, it just sounds too strange.

Stock Honda Horn : Meep Meep Excuse me please....
Hella Horn: WHOMP! WHOMP! Move *****! GET OUT THE WAY!
