Too bad you can't do full air horns... a buddy of mine has 2 4-foot horns, a triple set of small horns, and like one other one installed under his hood. Of course he'* got a 1962 Bonneville 'vert so he'* got more room, but he'* got it all plumbed, there'* a small air tank, compressor, pressure switch, and all the relay'* to make it work. Runs off the stock horn switch. The largest horns came off of a semi at the semi yard, believe me if you want to he not only heard but also induce heart attacks that'* what u need. Lol. But in all seriousness i think those cheapie kits are alright. Besides for 10 bucks, who cares right?

I had the plastic ones installed on my 69 GMC for about 6-7 years and they are still fine. Of course they were mounted on one of the wheel wells under the hood, it'* so nice to have all that room under there. Too bad I no longer have the truck ( gone to the scrap yard) but I hope to have another one someday.
