    I bought last night the Rocker 2 Gallon Horn Kit from Hornblasters.com I've always been into trains and loud horns. So I got one for my tiny Capri. Once, I install it I'll let you all know how it works by putting up a video. But here's someone else's demo video for now. Note* Headphone users may want to turn the volume down. www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EgE1mrIuIc

    Whatever floats your boat but that shit should only be used on trains as far as I'm concerned.

    I don't need something so loud I can be heard for a mile. lol. I just need something to wake up people. Plus my car is very small so I don't have much room for a big horn.
