Sorry Matt RedNeck, I meant your forum name.  You'll just be using your surname as your forum name then?  :y

My boss has one of those in his F150 Raptor..

I was watching what was required to install it.  I might just get one which I can swap over without new wiring, etc.

Might I recommend a Whelen Alpha set up with 100w speaker...

A relay driven by the horn circuit and power is all you need :-X

Single tone setting is perfectly adequate for most jobs. A quick press of the horn only sounds the factory horn due to the relay switching delay, but if a quick beep isn't enough press the button and hold it down and you get the full ARE YOU OPPOSING BLIND effect :y

Has the added flexibility to provide PA ability with a mic...

The PA element doesn't sound 100% uk road legal.  Not that the train horn is either  ::)

The alternative tones aren't exactly civilian but the air horn is... That's to say my ex plod taxi had one fitted with no MoT issues  :y

The siren needs to be securely mounted though as they're quite weighty...
