Anyone ever mounted horns in a boat? I have plenty of room in the engine compartment for the tank and compressor but have no clue where I would mount the horns. I ask this because it will be a factor in determining what kit I need to buy.
The compressor and tank can be screwed to the floor in the engine compartment very securely but the horns need to be mounted somewhere for the sound to be effective don’t they? if so, everything else on the boat is fiberglass and I don’t have too many surfaces to screw to.
Not sure if I should mount the horns outside on top of my wakeboard tower as that would require at least 25 feet of line to run and I’m not sure there would be a degradation of sound.
I was thinking about buying the Hornblasters conductor special but don’t know what unit to get at this time.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
edit: Moderator, if this needs to be in the installation forum please feel free to move it. I wasn’t sure so I posted here. Thanks.
the conductors special is a great set of horns i would suggest one of the kits with atleast 150 psi as they will be louder, 25’ of airline is perfectly fine the solenoid valve needs to be mounted within 1-2 feet of the horn that way there wont be hardly any delay in sound
run 200 PSI.
the second i hit 200 psi i can NEVER go back to anything below 170.
the tone kicks in hard at 200. (no fade in sound)
i think its cool when there is more air line, because then the honk rings and slowly dies
but for a boat, the conductors special is perfect.
or a high mount k3 or 5
HBs4 would be perfect for a small ski boat since they are actually marine horns; loud, but not too loud. You’ll be sitting right underneath them. A K5 or K3 would be nice just make sure you and your passengers wear ear protection…lol!! 150psi would suffice. Install at least 5gals. of air if it will fit.
