    Check out the kits from hornblasters.com I don't have anything from them but have heard good things about them from others.

    Hornblasters is good but pricey for the kits. They do use good products such as Vaiair (sp) for their compressors. I have a set of Grovers under my truck hooked up with my exhaust brake compressor and tank.

    I have the Whelen Electric Air Horn that the cop cars have. 10x better than any air horn, and its hidden. That thing is the way to move traffic.....

    They may have the setups that can work for you. They may still sell the air horn setup that uses a starter motor to run a compressor that blows a real air horn. They used to have just electronic air horn setups too.

    I installed a set of big rig air horns on my 98 Astro. I used the stock A/C compressor for an on-board air system. I mounted an air tank in the rear and plumbed in some air chucks. The horn is run from a 12 VDC solenoid and uses the stock wires from the horn button.

    wolo is about your only non compressor choice. You must put a few drops of oil in the unit and still some of the electric air pushers will go weak. They'll still work but, half capacity. Their cheap enough but, do expect a few to go bad before you find the one that will last.
