Arrow K5LA Install on 2013 Dodge Charger SRT8

I had already posted the build on a Charger forum, but here is where Im at in the process at the moment.


I wish I wouldve taken more pics along the way explaining the process, but I only have a few days left of vacation. Theres a lot going on in the pics but I will summarize the process. Each horn had to be test fitted, create a bracket from scratch, then finally install the horn and hope it fits how you planned. The 1/4" aluminum brackets have double duty and act as mounting brackets, but they also allow the 1/4" NPT air fittings to be tapped and installed, creating a perfect seal with the horns o-rings. Some of the horns I used L-brackets, this was so I could easily adjust the height for fitting purposes. Others, I simply used flat 1/4" aluminum.

I used all 3/8" hardware. Every horn is rock solid and you can practically stand on them. The 5 port air manifold is below the top center horn. I used 5 equal length pieces of 3/8" DOT air line to connect each individual horn to the manifold. This will ensure each horns sounds at the same time, the downside is I had to wrap excess air line around the horns that were close to the manifold. The headlight horns, I simply ran air lines through the bumper channels to keep it clean.

God, I hope my kid doesn't see this on the Charger forum. He's got a '13 Hemi and we just replaced his stock horns since they failed.



Looks great though ... how does it sound?

Don't know yet. Still need to install tank and wiring

My original plan was to put the 3, 4, and 5 bell all pointed forward from behind the grill, with the 3 on top and 4 & 5 on the bottom. Turns out, the #3 was simply too long. Only about an 1/8" too long
