    Not enough.
    .....personally, they are fucking annoying....and I usually see them on douche bro trucks, use in douche-ish ways (seen a homo blow the horn while a lady was crossing the street with her toddler)

    But to each his own. What will you be using it for.

    i would personally go with a HornBlasters setup, well worth the money and they sound EXACTLY like a train horn, not just a gay ass loud air horn

    Hmm, I think it would be cooler to get a cb mic connected to a pa. Then you can yell at other drivers and they can actually hear you... :D

    I wantr a train horn. I want it for when assholes cut me off. How many times have you wanted to scare the living daylights out of someone with your horn because they pissed you off, but your tiny little beep from your truck just cant do it?

    I just wish it wasnt so much money.

    You can build a train horn setup dirt cheap using pvc parts. Look up pvc train horns on YouTube. Doing this myself soon. Of course you'll need a tank and compressor. Hornblasters have a ton of good info. Personally I would not get anything on eBay. Might be ok, but won't last as long or sound as good. The horns are pretty cheap and sound nothing like a train horn. The pvc ones sound real close tot he real thing. I'm building a single ship horn myself. Just haven't figured out what to do with the tank setup. I have a 13 gallon tank but it's only 125 psi and they seem to like 150 psi or higher. Plus I can't seem to finda compressor for this larger tank. I may just get a hornblasters kit.
