The last one is showing how to use a relay.

I'll believe you're not stupid if you can do the whole thing yourself.

I did Google them I thought he might have dealt with a specific vendor.

Is their a way to control the volume that the horn puts out?

Is their a slightly quieter air horn like semi trucks use, so it would be more street friendly?

thanks,
Andrew

This is the one I have: http://cgi.ebay.com/Hammer-3-Train-Horn-Gmax-Valve-Chrome-BLEM_W0QQitemZ130164590038QQihZ003QQcategoryZ60203QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

I know I am going to get $hit for having this set of horns but it was a gift for my birthday from my wife. If I am around guys that know me want me to hit the horn for them. I actually wanted it for the fans at the pulls. When I started looking for a set of Nathen P3 I could not believe the cost.

Street friendly Hell......I like to see people freak out when I hit the horn because they are being a dumb ass. If you want truck horns get truck horns. They are not as loud but I like the obnoxious loud horns.

I use a solenoid. I did not want to have to run hoses in the cab then out of the cab after going through a manual valve.

On edit here is what I found out about horns per CVC

"27000. (a) A motor vehicle, when operated upon a highway, shall be equipped with a horn in good working order and capable of emitting sound audible under normal conditions from a distance of not less than 200 feet, but no horn shall emit an unreasonably loud or harsh sound. An authorized emergency vehicle may be equipped with, and use in conjunction with the siren on that vehicle, an air horn that emits sounds that do not comply with the requirements of this section.?
That is pretty vague. To me an air horn is not a harsh sound

I know they make pressure switches but they are like 90/150. I want to be able to control exact psi so I can use it from a little louder then a regular horn to full out train horn.

I was thinking about one of these http://airbagit.com/product_info.php?cPath=64_68&products_id=1572 then connect it to a switch some how so you can set it to 20 psi and then press a switch and it turns the horn on to only 20 psi

See what I am trying to do?

Go to Sears or a hardware store and get a regulator. Install it in line to the horns. Same type or regulator used for a boost fooler.

I have the Leslie RS3. I got them from ebay for $305. They work ok for the price but I'm looking for a rebuild kit. One horn has a little squeek before it gets peak psi. This is the air supply (Viair)that I got from DiscountPowerParts.

Pressure is important, but you can't forget about flow.

Ok Rainbow (It's your avatar afterall), if you want 2 different sound levels, you need 2 different solenoids to do it correctly. I don't reccomend a regulator, but rather a simple variable orifice after one of the solenoids. Use a SPDT switch to determine which one is used.
To get the most effect out of the horns, you need to make sure they are the largest restriction on the loud side. Say, 1/2" - 5/8" ID lines.
You'll tee between the tank and solenoids and run the same sized lines to both solenoids.
On the output of the quiet solenoid, put a restriction. This can be a fixed orifice, variable orifice, or a short length of 1/4" hose.
On the output of the LOUD solenoid, just run a short length of the large hose and tee the outputs back together and run a single large hose to the horns.
