      Question for ya'll:

      im sure it will be alright but im am just double checking if its cool or not.

      i just purchased a train horn, this is my current setup



      now to my question, can i just tee off one of the inlets that goes to the vu4, or would that some how mess it up with it getting air? Or should i just plug one inlet, and then have a line straight from tank to horn.

      Heres my idea...


      Thanks for the help guys and lmk if my idea will work

      I also have a psi regulator going to my air horn so that if I want it a little bit tamer, I dial down the psi.

      Well... I tried to piggyback it but now have it hooked up on a separate switch cause I don't have the time to mess with it. But in a few months when I am at my F-18 school I will have lots of time to mess with it so for now its on its own switch.

      It is simply a 12V NC solenoid so just splice it into the existing positive and negative on your actual horn and you should be good. Just wouldnt recommend hooking it up to your horn that beeps when you lock your car I'm not sure which or the horns is meant for what, Maybe test that out first. If one horn is for locking/alarm and one is for pushing your steering wheel then you are good. If both are activated for both then you are going to have to put a relay in line with the + when you splice it in so that the solenoid for the air horn only works when the car is running

      The horn for locking the door is under the rain tray I believe. The 2 horns in your bumper are your regular horns, so like Sean said, just tap into one of those.

      Corret, the 2 horns down by the bumper is one for low tone one for high tone. The alarm horn is a flat looking thing up in your rain tray.

      And I think I just have to rearrange how I have the relay powered cause I wanted to have it so that it has a switch to cut out power and activate when the horn it sounds off. But as it stands right now, when I turn on the switch the train horn sounds. I know I just have something backwards but I have been too busy lately to mess with it.

      I would be more than willing to draw up some wiring diagrams for people depending on their specific application.

      Thanks guys, for all the info. i appreciate it. Once i get it in and then ill ask my dad (show him this thread/ideas) and see the route he thinks will be the easiest/best. if not ill have it hooked to its own switch, with i already have a place for it from my old fog lights.

      yes when you honk the horn the bag would deflate, and you would only be able to honk the horn when the bags are inflated.

      run a seperate line.

      Looks good, but i would have pointed them out the front grilles to give the guy who just cut you off the full effect. this way it will be slightly quieter. Also i never realized how small the brakes were on a 2.0

      so far its made my dad and his buddies at work jump, made my mom jump, my sister jump and scared the **** out of my dog
      note, the video doesnt make it sound as loud as it really is.



      im thinking to, that i might get another Md. 99 and put on the passenger side too.
      also got the new lips on...
