I am wondering if there is any point in hooking up my CB to my horn so that i can use it as a speaker.. You know.. any who..

I am wondering if there is any point. Has anyone on this site used or installed one.. is it a waist of time.. did you ever use it.. I havenít actually ever had one and just got a wicked horn.. and im seeing if its something i should use to.

Lots of people have done that !


Problem is most of the cb's and horns are of such low quality and low power that you cant understand what they are saying most of the time !


But you wont know till you try it so give it a shot !

Depends on the horn - if it's a standard car horn it wont work, they are basically tone generators. You clearly want a loudspeaker - cheap and easiest way i've found is to get an old 4 inch or whatever car speaker, hook it up with your wires, mount it in your grille with a plastic bag zapstrapped over top of it to keep it waterproof

i would place the horn where mine is just inside the engine bay so it does not get destroyed.

I'll mount somethin' on your pumper <nudge nudge> giggity giggity giggity.





Yeah, I had to go there, couldn't let that one slip by.








The speakers are awesome - unlimited free supply, when you kill em just slap on another - Make sure you stick it in a bag though - makes them last longer.

Hooking it up is easy, grab some speaker wire, get/make one of these:

(I think you know how <snip snip>) If you are using a STEREO plug (two lines as in the pic and three wires) just twist the two signal wires together to make a mono plug heh.

You should be able to find everything you need at princess auto (god bless the almighty PA)

If the cops hear you using a loud speaker attached to a CD, you'll get a $500.00 fine plus you can be charged for impersonating a police officer. *I know this first hand* I dont have my CB anymore, it aint worth the headache.

I need to find an electric "air" horn from a Boat, they're usually 120db, and they'll make my Mazda sound big and scary...

Reminds me of a friend who had barnyard animals for a horn and a fat chick was crossing the crosswalk and he set it to the cow.

I swear she was gonna lay the beats to him!

For me, it was some jack ass in front of me, he was turning right at a red light @ 13th & St. Georges in North Van (legal to turn on a red), I keyed up the mic, and said "Hey buddy, it is legal to turn right on a red". The cop behind me, (unmarked) hit his lights, and keyed up his loud speaker, "you in the blue mazda, turn the corner and park it"

I was hit with a $502.00 fine, and told I could be charged with impersonating a police officer. I got the fine for improper use of a Citizen Band radio, using an external speaker in an unsafe manor, and inciting road rage all on one ticket.

Those little air horns are a joke. They sound like a tin can farting. I have a set that I had in my last truck. IF I had a tank to use those horns from they would still sound like a tin can farting.

Now a boat horn, is electric, and can be just wired into my pathetic Import horn.

If you get the PA one make sure you get the metal ones they sound better then the plastic horn
