My buddy has a bagged S10, and we just upgraded his tank and compressor....so we've got the old tank (3 gal) and compressor (Air Ride Technologies) to play with...

What else would I need for those loud ass train horns? Any suggestions on where to get them? I figured the compressor and tank has to be a large chunk of the cost of them, so maybe we can get this done on the cheap....

if your compressor is pretty strong, shich it sounds like since it was used for air bags, then you can also upgrade to a 1/2" Valve to the horns...lets a bigger and louder blast to the horns

Only problem with that is that it drains your tank faster but, I guess it doesn't matter if you're doing short blasts. I upgraded to a 3/8" solenoid over my old 1/4" and it definitely made it louder!

The compressor is Air Rides 150PSI .50CFM pump, I dont know anything about this stuff, but I figure if its strong enough to raise a S10, it'll fill up the tank just fine.
We shall see, hopefully I can get a good deal on the horns and other stuff. :D

Thanks for this Thread Adam,as I already have my compressor,5 gallon tank to go with my air bags and I am looking to get train horns as well.
Hi Slammed1.
I just bought through e-bay, a Mk2 Kong tripple train horn with a viair 380c 200 psi system with a 3 gallon tank from a company called Siege Engineering.
I can't wait for it to arive here in the UK ha ha ha.
They also have on e-bay, tain horns only which have a blemish in the chrome etc. They go a LOT cheaper than the others and hey, when mounted underneath the truck, who's gonna' see a slight blemish in the chrome??
Hope this helps you?

This system is unbelievable! I love it! it's the loudest one I have heard yet around here. I can get about a 10 second long blast out of the 3 gallon tank, but mainly use it for a few short bursts, and it holds up just fine. The compressor also fills the tank up very fast and maintains the pressure very well.

Here are some pics for ya.

If you get the Hammer 3 horns they have a solonoid built in with 3/8 fittings. you will alspo need a pressure switch to cycle the compressor on and off and a relay. you will need 3/8 air line tubing and the fitting to hook it to the tank. I got my set up from seige engineering as well. You can call them and order parts without dealing with ebay as well. (423)253-3474 I have found that Kevin there is the most knowledgable too.

I dont have a clip of mine, but here is a clip of the same horns I have, but I have a larger tank, and stronger compressor, and a larger diamiter solonoid and hose....so it is actually LOUDER!

This clip is what convinced me to get this kit
