Horn for jk

Im looking for suggestions on a replacement horn for a JK. If anyone can recommend a good horn and has pictures of an install, please share! I was checking out the Grover 1510 Emergency Air Horn. Pretty awesome! Not too knowledgeable with air horns and what all is required though. Also, I have seen people with the PIAA 400 500, which would be great if it sounds loud and if it's easy to install.

Very cool, good luck with the install! - I'm sure all trian horns require a lot of space. So ill prop go with a regular horn, just want a loud deep one!

I and a bunch of others have the PIAA 400/500hz horns. They work great, easy to install and loud enough.

I've got this one. The horns fit nicely between the radiator and the engine, pointed strait down ( the loadest ), and the tank is under the passenger seat, the compressor is in front of the battery

That's the one I just started looking at! Does it require any other equipment, i.e. air compressor, or any tanks???

I also went with the Wolo. The only thing you may not like about it is that it is a high pitched horn. It requires no extra tanks, or compessors. You can use the metal bar that the stock horn is attached to, but I had an extra piece from an old radio install so I used that. You'll have to change to a 20 amp fuse. The OE 10 amp fuse will blow after a few toots of the horn.

Yup I had to put a 15 amp fuse in also. its loud and the sound clip on the amazon site I posted is exactly what it sounds like for tone. Just fits the factory horn location, man they dont leave any extra room anywhere under the hood on the 12's.

You might also consider Hella dual horns. They will plug right in to where the factory horn plugs in, and they are very load. I had them on a Jeep i used to have.
