DidHeFocus? Hi all,
Just wanted to give and update and respond to comments regarding reports of the possible limited life of the Fiamm compressor.

I'm happy to say that they're still going strong in both cars after over 2 years with no noticeable reduction in loudness. I don't own the Chevy anymore but I know for a fact they're still working fine. I sold it to a neighbor's friend and he honks them whenever he comes by.

I installed these horns...

Stebel Nautilus. One piece, dual tone, compact, integrated air horns

Technical specifications:
Sound Output: 139 dB
Operating Voltage: 12 Volts
Absorbed Current: less than 18A
Fundamental Frequency: 530 Hz & 680 Hz
Weight: 0.6 kg (1.3 lbs)
Dimensions: 5.9" (150mm) x 4.4" (112mm) x 3.7" (95 mm)
Reaction time: less than 90 milli-seconds

I placed them near the factory location and they respond better than the traditional air horn because there is no tube (well, it isn't visible, at least) and I can tap the horn and have them sound as opposed to having to wait for the air pressure to build.

And they are way loud.. 139db!

I love em!

delta focus no prob, i'll prob do this in the future, so it was good to know about

DidHeFocus? Thanks delta, and BTW, my horns still work, even the older set in my Z24!
I don't look for opportunities to honk them, but I get a real satisfaction every time I get a chance to!

I'm not exactly sure but... I want to say plot the waves on a graph with the y axis being amplitude (which is amount of energy/intensity [dB] in the wave) and the x axis being frequency. Then this is where I fell asleep in physics class...I thin you've gotta see where they constructively and destructively intefere wtih each other (look at the crests and troughs and see where one is going down with the other going up [destructive] or where they are both going up [consturctive]), there is some math to it too, subtracting and adding amplitudes I believe. I can't exactly remember though, I like old fashioned electricity better, waves suck. Maybe someone else can correct me.
