    3055 12v Horn-gctid374303

    I need to replace the 12v horn that lives on top of the radar arch, as mine has died. I don't really want to have chrome trumpets on show but would like a loud sound when needed. Has anybody fitted air horns, I was thinking that they may work if mounted in the engine room, close to the port side engine vent

    someone has replaced this with a very loud electric horn, I cant remember who but I am sure theyll speak up. I believe you can get these in many places like west marine.

      I installed chrome air horns just foreward of my windshield. The air compressor and tank lives under a dinette seat.

        Even working the horn on the arch is weak.

        I added an air horn up front by the windlass. The small pump is in the anchor locker.

        I did not want the air horn behind me.

        IMHO - Putting the horn inside the engine bay would likely not yield a good result.

          Thanks Jim, So are your trumpets inside your anchor locker or mounted on the outside ?

            My horn trumpet is on the front deck by the anchor roller.

            In order to make the horn work I had to run a wire from the helm. Running the wire was the hard part of the install.

            If interested I can detail the choices of route for running the wire. I say "wire" because I cheated and connected to the existing windlass negative. I only ran a positive wire from the helm switch.
