Train horns by far! Used to have them on the big truck and came in handy for the "wide turns".

You need to look up train horns on google.com Train horns will make most old farts sh*t themselves.

I would assume it is NOT safe to put the air tank in the cab of the truck? If not were else can I put it or does anyone know of a system were they do not need a tank? I assume to get them real loud that you do. May have to hire my brother to fabricate me a bracket for under the bed btwn the frame rails....

Jon, I second Rippem's statement. Do a search on www.dieselplace.com One of the threads had a sound wave attachment link, locomotive horns, he detailed the entire installation and experience. Quite funny, and effective if you really want to be heard.

IF you want LOUD , you must have a compressor with a tank ...... You can put the compresser under the hood and the tank on the frame . It is a small tank . about 8" x12" or so .

If you want loud , & want them to fit , buy the hadleys twin horns . The two small ones mounted together ,next to each other . They are MUCH louder then the big ones . EXTREMEMLY LOUD !!!! I have several sets on my trucks where space is an issue . Like these :

IF SPACE IS NOT A PROBLEM ,, YOU WANT LOUD ,,AND SCARE THE CRAP OUT OF EVERYONE ,,,,, GET THE TRAIN HORNS !! I have them too ! Horns run around $140 with electric solinoid , plus what ever the tank and pump cost . Here's a complete kit I just found :
