"Improper" use of a horn could be issued no matter what horn you have. Never heard of a ticket for having a loud horn. But I don't live in Calif. either,Lol. The laws are different from state to state, that's for sure!, :( Mike

I think it comes down to not using something that doesn't sound like a normal vehicle horn. I have a horn in my truck that sounds like a fire truck horn. It really freaks people out, but would probably get me in a lot of trouble if I used it around a cop.

GD why the hell does everything here anymore become a "its illegal" shit anymore god guys I know Ca. is the fuckstick of the US w/ laws etc., but it seams like everything thats a mod anymore that involves lights, sounds etc. gets an instant "you better watch out" from a Ca poster. Most of us understand that you dont do stuff to provoke Johnny law to give you a ticket, or want to give you a ticket. Hell can we please stop the lawyer talk here.

I was kinda surprised when I got my recent Texas safety inspection. My truck was gonna fail for the horn being to loud (It's got air horns), I plugged the factory horn back in and it passed. Texas has had a law on the books for many years that only allows an auto horn to blow so many decibels, I'd expect this in California, but Texas?

Hook them up separate of the stock horns and install another switch or button for them.

Wow, that is fricking awesome. Plenty of good spoof video plots and scaring idiot pedestrians with that.

Where did you get the train horn from?

I used the stock horn button to control both my train horns and also the stock horn. I used a switch to select which set of horns was "live". Connect the switch to a Bosch style relay. Put the relay inline with the stock horn wire. Horn input on #30, out to the stock horns on #87a, out to the train horn solenoid on #87. #85 to ground. #86 to your incab 12v+ switch. When the switch is off your stock horns will blow as usual. When you turn the switch On the relay will disconnect the stock horns from the circuit, and it connects the horn button to the train horn solenoid.

I need to make a new video. The horns are even louder and sharper now. I bumped up the pressure from 150 to 175. It's insanely loud now. :D I love it. It's awesome when people are driving over a railroad crossing. LOL

I got the horns and compressor from www.vtkustoms.com. I got the 5 gallon aluminum air tank from www.FBIrides.com My CarDomain has some pics of the install.

I got mine from siege engineering. Its a 3 liter compressor and tank set up and my horn is mounted towards the rear above my driveshaft, between my gas tank and exhaust. It is loud as hell!
