Train horns On the SES

HellO all... Just needed a little advice.

Below you see a couple pics of my Hornblaster Shocker kit. Previously installed on my f150... I am kind of stuck here, I can't figure out where to install them. The Compressor will go in the trunk across from the factory sub and wired with a relay and an override switch... That's easy. Now where do I put the horns? They are four separate horns.

Yes, they are loud, much louder than the chrome trope trumpets everyone has...

Any advice where to put these horns would be appreciated.

Thank you,

In my state such horns are illegal. Curious if you were to 'honk' them near a cop?

I honestly dont think there's a place to mount them under there, You have to worry about your factory jack points if you ever have to put them it up on a lift then you have to worry about ground clearance.

The horns are only illegal if used. :)

They get you for a few things, sound violation, disturbing the peace, and there is one more. (edit: excessive use of your horn)

I have been pulled over for mine one time... It was at night... And my truck stuck out like a soar thumb, in this car, no one will have a clue.

Edit:

I wanted to add onto this, you really do have to be careful with them. You don't blow them at people sitting next to you at a red light, you don't blow them deliberately at old people, but by all means, you blow them at children waiting in/on a school bus.

When I got pulled over in my truck I did not get a ticket. It was around
Midnight, I got pulled over for a taillight out. The guy knew my truck, knew where I worked, and knew I had hit the horns earlier. The guy just told me not to hit them at night.

I am not some snot nosed kid running around trying to be a rebel. The horns are fun, cone in useful when you get cut off on the interstate. And do to the fact I drive to Nashville Tn from central Florida once a month, they provide some entertainment, and keep you awake.

I must see a video of these after they are installed. It would be so funny. No one will know!
