Okay, I'm gonna weigh in here. Videos will be useless in determining the sheer magnitude of the volume. Derek couldn't even get close to an idea of the volume either because his phone's speaker is inadequate. Maybe if he had a bullhorn to the side of his head, he'd have a better idea of the volume. I recommend everyone show up next Saturday to the meet and watch Mike get arrested for noise ordinance violations!

Actually, if you're going to do a video, take a camera with a good zoom, drive 1/2 mile away and take a video of Mike blowing the horn. His truck might look like a speck on the video, but I guarantee the sound will be heard. Of course you have to take the same video with the stock horn blowing for purposes of an accurate comparison!

Of course, I say all of this since I've heard the horns. Even in the two short blasts I heard, I know enough now that I will be bringing hearing protection on Saturday pale

ok yeah so really there is absolutely no way to convey the sheer volume that these put out...FJDerek was just at the house and he took a video on his phone and even knowing that i was gonna blow it he still jumped out of his skin!! ill let him post up with the video but its still not gonna duplicate it...

just show up on Saturday and hear it for yourself.!!!!!

It's gonna be hard to get in trouble I think. Your truck is so ridiculously loud that you can't even tell where the sound came from because you're more concerned with the blood coming out of your ears. If your horns were visible, you'd have something to worry about, but that sweet plate you made keeps them well protected and hidden.

Too funny!!! People might start thinking there is a ghost train running the tracks.

I think when you first blew those horns I went unconcious for a split second...or had an out of body experience! I was standing two cars down at the back of Jami's rig so I was within 12 feet of the blast!
