So what would be better the Thunderbolt series or Landslide Truck air horns... they are both in the price range i'm willing to pay. i'm sitting in class so i can't play the the clips to hear them lol

Landslide hands down, the Thunderbolt sounds like total crap! I liked the Big Bang Train Horns the best though.

The Landslide is the very minimum I would go. I would look for a Viair compressor and a 3-5 gallon tank.

Go ahead and get quality components the first go around so your not replacing stuff in a year or two.

I put a set on the wife's truck years ago, made by a small engineering company down in Tennessee called Siege Engineering. It's a three trumpet tuned stainless steel system with oversize valves, 3 gallon tank and 150psi compressor. Rated at about 128db and very authentic sounding. The trumpets are mounted up inside the rear fender, facing down and to the rear, so they're not visible at all.

How do they sound? Well, the wife once accidentally set them off getting out of the truck at the train station on her way to work, and people all over the parking lot started running thinking they'd missed their train. :)
