The Hummer Knowledge Base
I read someones web page where they changed the wimpy hummer horn to a louder one.
I want to change it out, but I don't want to deal with air compressors that are associated with air horns.
You already have an air compressor and air tank. They are called CTIS and your tires. If you honk a long time, then you might think about refilling your tires!
If / When they ever get the auto-inflate system, then this would be perfect!
Horns from an IH semi, with a second air compressor (not the CTIS one), a small tank. Home made setup, but it works. There are several commercially available systems, which cost about $150-200 which are good. Avoid the $35 specials-tain't worth the trouble, IMHO.
Mounted my horn on the driver's side beside the tire (the plastic spash guard, next to the master brake cylnder.
For the sake of simply install and not spending a fortune I would
recommend the Hella air horn kits available in 2 or 3 horn styles.
They come with a relay and all needed parts. Sure you have to mount
the compressor but it's small. They are well used for alarm
systems by many people and are quite loud. Low priced too only $29.95
for the 2 tone one.
Try HELLA, they have a set of horns that bolt in directly and are
really loud and terribly annoying. They also make air horns but these other
horns have a much sharper noise, you can also combine them with the stock
