    A good trick that I have used in the past is....go to a wrecking yard and buy caddy, or lincoln horns. Paint them the same color as the truck,or just clean them up.... and you have a loud quality sound. People will will definitely pay attention.

    im asking because i have had both, if you dont put a thick enough wire and a relay it will not be as loud as it should, sickspeeds should go louder than that
