    Hi Guys,
    Anyone have real world experience with a loud electric horn , it is for my dump truck. I bought a wolo version claiming to be 142 dec. but its a joke. I don't have air so no need for air horn,
    Thanks,
    Steve

    Get yourself a small portable air tank[they're very cheap],secure it somewhere on your frame and get a real air or better yet,a train horn.You can do this for app.what you'll have in to that Chinese electric toy.

    Regarding whelen airhorn, you will need a 100 watt speaker, which you can find used on ebay, etc. and a simple pushbutton/horn button, if you go on youtube and put in Whelen airhorn things will come out so you can hear! good luck
