west central illinoisMine were under the sleeper where they couldn't be seen. I've also seen them behind the drivers side steer tire. Put the air valve on the right hand side of the drivers seat. Mine was between the door and the drivers seat and I caught flack from the troopers because of it. We unhooked them because I got tired of the BS from them seeing the valve.

The horns were plumbed into the tank on the inside of the frame.

The 2 places I got the most flack about them was west Memphis and the port of entry in Wyoming.

Canmore Ab. CanadaA friend has his horns under the floor almost under his seat. He has a 1/4 turn valve on 3/4" pipe beside his seat on the left side.
I found out when one day I asked, "What's this for?" He flipped it while I was standing right there. Pretty close to needing clean shorts!! Dan...

Dearfield Co.I dont use the stand valves that go beside the seats sue to part of them being metric as well as the possibility of accidental opening of the valve.I think what he is using will have a electric solenoid to control the air so he will need a toggle switch.

Iowayou need bigger stacks. like maybe 12 inch. then get your train horns

We putone the on the passenger side tool box step right by the exhaust even in the coldest weather like this past week they never froze up. And we use a toggle switch. On my personal truck and trailer we have one the truck and one on the trailer by one of the axle all wired to the same switch

I have mine bolted on the backside of the drivers side steps facing backwards, that made it easy to hook up the airline to the port on the rear of that air tank. I also just cut the wire to the factory horn that's in the middle of the steering wheel and ran a wire down to the solenoid off the train horns . I did it that way because I didn't feel like putting the valve and pedestal in.


webster, north dakotaThey are louder if you use the ball valve and large hose than the little solenoid

far west okAre they REAL train horns ? I mount them either behind sleeper or down behind right front steer tire . The real train horns need a extra air tank and plumbed with 1/2 or 3/4 inch line to produce best and loudest sound. I have 2 brands of horns ,change the bells on them to for different tones. Lesley and Nathan . Easy to get parts for repairs . Aftermarket horns have nothing on the real deal driver. I have some that use a trolley valve mounted down by drivers seat and some mounted on extra brake valve below steering wheel .

Eastern VA. No such thing as too many Magnums.I heard they don't work on Volvos. If you try to put a train horn on a Volvo, it sounds like a single, high-note, on a Toyota corolla.

central IowaWe ALWAYS mount them on the right side tool box, so the bicyclists can hear them when they blow a stop sign right in front of me.

far west okI had some cops next to me while I was getting on I65 in Mobile AL and they wanted to hear the set that was on my cow truck , may I could not resit, they almost spilled their coffee. going through the tunnel there is fun too when your empty .

WiUnder sleeper or under the empty step box if you have one. Factory horns on our T600 are under passenger feet.

True train horns take a lot of air so size everything accordingly and use a seperate tank with a pressure protection valve to protect your main tanks. Or if you have a third tank that is protected and feeds things like the seat, HVAC horn, etc then you could just tap into that tank.

I would set them up with at least two different "pitches" for the best sound.

Thumb of MichiganIf its not a Peterbilt, its just a truck. Didnt really think that Volvos made comfortable hwy trucks.

My horns are mounted on front side of the passenger step box pointed directly outward. I have an extra 5 gal tank mounted and a separate compressor and running 200 psi with 1/2" line and valve hooked to horn button in center of steering wheel. No comparison in real train horns vs chrome shop train horns. Have saved me from having multiple deer hood ornaments several times. I still need a bigger air tank just for horns. I love the look on the kids faces when they pump their arms and want me to honk.

You think Volvo's are comfy off road only then? Volvos are comfortable ergonomic trucks. No you cant sit in the sleeper with the air out of the seat and be comfy, but they are ergonomic if you sit the way they were intended to be driven.  They get a bad rap in the US because they are not the same powerhouse that they are in Europe and they often try to the be cookie cutter truck.  I don't like Volvo's for my own reasons but they are not bad trucks either. Just not "cool" to billy big riggers.

As for Pete's,they are in their own league along with their owners attitudes. They tend to be worse than Deere owners or go hand in hand with each other.

I prefer the better side of PACCAR, the tougher trucks that go to work without "Class".lol

I just like not having the horns on the roof more than anything, don't care what type of horns you use, moving them underneath doesn't create any more headaches than ones on the roof. If anything its less headaches IMO. 

I'd save my money.

Always figured theres a reason you see a ratio of 10:1 Kenworth to other Class 8s in the woods it seems. W Star is pretty popular but not many petes.   Of course the Pacifics and Hayes are pretty badass though.

There you go again....the same sweeping statement saying all pete owners have an attitude you don't like. How can you possibly make a claim like that? You don't know .0001% of the Pete owners out there, yet you rag on them all.

We get that there are apparently some people you know who drive Pete's that you don't like. And you are certainly free to like or dislike anyone or any thing. Making a claim like that is just wrong.

Who really has the "attitude" here?
