Airhorn question

Ok.. I have had enough of my horn that sounds like an elephant with a cold.. "ENORT"

So, today I am going to see about getting a set of trucker airhorns.. I have a 5gal air tank I am going to fill up and use for the source.. And if I run out.. I can fill it up with my powerplant.. Anyways... My question is what should I look for in an airhorn.. I know the design of them are simple.. Air flows over a diaphram that vibrates and it transmits them out the horn end... But is there a brand I should look for.. And what size fittings.. I am going to see about getting one from an old semi...

Anything made by Grover. A bit pricey, but they can last for MANY years. That is what I have sitting waiting to be mounted on the Jeep.

Or just buy a stebel. Probably not as loud as what your talking about doing, but it is night and day better than the stock horn.

try to listen to a sound clip of the pitch. I just bought a random set of hella air horns a few years ago and the pitch was way too high for what I wanted but it was too late at that point.

I run Stebel Nautilus on my motorcycle, CJ and will put one on my JK very soon. It's pretty damn loud...
