I have. I have a car horn and a backup beeper. I ran a wire from the battery to the horn and the ground line to the frame. Push button for the car horn toggle switch for the beeper.

We have a car horn on mine, an air horn on jacobs, and a very loud alarm siren on rainbow's. His is hooked to seat switch, alarm goes off if you sit on it, or you can use switch to honk it.

you could copy doc and put a compressor like he did on MULE, or something like that. i wouldnt think it would be too super hard. the biggest thing would be to have a charging system able to keep up with the massive draw from the compressor

If there's an auto junk yard in your area, that might be the most economical way to get a horn. A single horn will sound wimpy, but two horns that are different pitches will sound beefy. Look in the front end of a junked pickup truck.

I'm running all of my accessories off of the positive from the ignition switch. It's just one more safety that makes me feel better. In case any switches got rain soaked or malfunctions somehow. I wouldn't want my lights or my horn to turn on in the middle of the night.

Buick's and caddy's have nice loud two tone horns. Stay away from the jap cars, they have the single tone wimpy horns usually.

I bet if you bought an air horn kit from an auto store and bought a second compressor from ebay so they each have their own it would make some wicked noise.
