So I want to get a train horn for my truck and I was doing some research on them and cant really decide what I want. Go the cheaper route and get smallest or spend the money and get the big shibang. Anyone have one that can give me there opinion on it?:coolphoto

I think the big ones sound way better you get that low sound to it where the smaller ones are higher. They are a more expensive kit but i priced it out for doing all of it myself instead of buying the kit and i can do it cheaper that way. The reason I did this though is because making my air tank run my airbags and an air line and all the stuff not just for the air horns. Check your local truck shop they may have tanks laying around for really cheap!

its not that the horn itself is illegal, its the sound that it makes which is illegal, you'll get a noise pollution ticket or even "stunting" or some other ticket
