Electric Horn Needed

Looking for ideas for an aftermarket electric horn that WILL get some attention. Need more than just the stock horn when towing.
Thanks!

Go to a junk yard and get one or more horns. Power them with a relay, and you'll be set.
If you want to go big, go here: Train Horn Kits & Air Suspension By HornBlasters, The Name In Locomotive Air Horns!
For a bit less money, you can find one here:
super loud car horn | eBay

In high school I had a '59 Oldsmobile. There was a giant space between the radiator and the grill. I went to a junk yard and got about 8 horns and installed them in that space. Worked great until the relay contacts welded shut while downtown and it was a race between me disconnecting the battery and the constables arriving. I won.

Most auto stores (EPically the better ones) sell an assortment of horns, Some are electric HORNS (Like air horns but electric)

And there are air horns for electric only vehicles (They have a compressor and some have an electric solenoid)

You can get some serious attention without playing "Dixieland" like Mr. Daniels and family did in the movie.

Put an air horn on my Goldwing. It wasn't very expensive and really lets cagers know I am there.

Found this on line. Even better. Ear Cannon Air Horn :: Aerostich/RiderWearHouse Motorcycle Jackets, Suits, Clothing, & Gear

Thanks guys. Looks like it depends on how much money one would like to invest in one.

BFlinn181.....And now everyone is pushing their remotes to lock/unlock cars and the horns go off. Heck, car alarm goes off and people just keep going on with what they are doing. Just think, you were way ahead of the times with your 8 horn set up!
