2014+ Train Horn Recommendations?

Post by DirtyOffroad » Wed Jul 18, 2018 7:58 pm

Looking to do an OBA/Train Horn combo with a 2-3 gal tank. I'm not opposed to making my own setup but would likely buy a train horn kit with my own tank and oba bits. Looking for recommendations as I know this is a common install. I'd like to use my spare tire well for the tank if not the whole setup if anyone has done that.

There was someone on one of the PW FB groups doing OBA and airhorn kits. He caught a ton of shit but the kits looked pretty good. I don't remember his name but it was some goofy site like airhornsRus or something.

I have a fire engine air horn on my CTD. I like it a lot, it gets 120 psi air from my 200psi OBA.

hornblasters has the most cost effective and plug and play setups.

yea so ill be buying this asap.

https://kleinn.com/product/onboard-air- ... 734-horns/

look out for install within the next 2 months,

i once overed the install tech, seems well designed. i may setup a dual viair in the rambox though.

engineering of wiring may be off. it needs to have a horn momentary button and a toggle power switch. the way it is wired is relay to ignition power, but that means anytime the tank is low, the motor goes whirl.
i want control of when the motor can fill the tank.

Yes, Kleinn's circuit set up has system wired to run when the ignition is on. However, you could place a switch between the power source and the pressure switch to cut power on/off to pressure switch, thus the compressor will not run as long as the pressure sw is not energized.

I really like the Kleinn offering. It looks like the mounting location(s) conflict with White Knuckle Rock Sliders. I am sure it could be rectified, just something to consider.

Looks like I'm going to build something to get what I want. Hornblasters offers the Shocker kit which is likely what I'll go with for horns. Going to put a 4 gallon pancake tank where the spare was, compressor will have to be custom fit somewhere but I can do that. Compressor will feed a multi-port tank with an OBA setup as well.

I'm thinking I'll run to OBA into one of the ramboxes with a hose on it so its ready to roll immediately and wont get gunk in the port.

I sure could'a used one today. Coming home with camper in tow, down a major road. Had to turn right. Guy in front of me also turns right but stops to talk to an old lady going the opposite way !!! right in an intersection on a major road. Camper almost got rear ended by a semi-truck....he also layed on his air horn. Then the guy flips me off---like i did something wrong---& kept brake checking me till he turned into his driveway.................so now i know where he lives. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
