It wasn't on coach similar to yours, but I did a mod on mine.


I had dual trumpets on top, but those were problematic. I found a kit that was customizable on JC Whitney. Also found a very loud "buzzer" at Grainger.


By the time all was said and done, my horn sounded like the signal from the TV Show "Emergency".


Very Cool. Was a hit with other first responders.

Annoyed the #$%^ out of the others.

I upgraded to a set functionally like this (same triple horn ) but mated to the same size air tank and compressor for my Airlift rear helper airbags.

It is plenty loud, and attention getting, almost too loud.

Hey Bob, what kind of setup did you put?? Im guessing under the hood of the M2 106 there is plenty of room to add this!

thanks!

Don't remember the brand....just picked one off Amazon.....and the check valve and it's hose weren't the greatest, so replaced those with parts from a air/hyd store.......and I mounted my stuff underneath the truck on the frame and on the transfer case skid plate.....

Here is another seller. My M2 came with air brakes and the single trumpet. I took off the single and mounted the triple. Hooked airline straight to horns.
