How Many Air Horns Should You Have?

Recommended Posts

So I spawned in Rotterdam and I hear some honking that just about threw my headset off my head. Someone has 8 air horns on their truck, I normally have 3-4 on mine but 8 really just blew my ears. I took a screenshot but it wont let me add the pic so here is a gayzo link to the pic.  https://gyazo.com/17c642bb2586fe3810218c283dc2c596

 

I know horn spamming in one thing but is it also against the rules to have "x" amount of air horns on your truck?

0 or 2, as long as its symmetrical and not an abomination that 90% of the trucks are in the game.

This guys gets it. Most of the trucks in mp look simply awful  I usually go with 0.

usually 2 is the max i put on it.

(SARCASTIC)

the right answer is: as many as possible :D 

same for beacons(bacon as squirrel says) lots and lots of them, just to be sure you lag the whole server not just 2 or 3 players :)

I prefer the "screamer" variant of air horns because they are actually a small cluster of three horns per slot,  but they are small and dont overhang. More importantly they don't sound pathetic and two won't blow speakers and ear drums, so on my rig I run two symmetrically positioned on the roof rack. Looks really nice because they are compact, and they have the most unique sound without being weird or under or over powered. 

 

I only use my horn when it's an emergency, but if someone is going down the interstate and chirps their horns at me, I'll do a short chirp or two back. But I never initiate horns first, if I want to I guess "wave" at a driver going by opposite direction I flash my lights, as horns might make a distracted driver think there is danger. That is unless they honk at me first. Then I honk back and all is good. 

 

Try the screamer airhorn set. They are nice looking yet compact, and have a medium punch, without being overpowering. However because they are technically 3 pipes to one accessory slot, any more than a pair would be far too much, and is kind of the case in real life too. 

 

But then again in real life there's also the guys who hook up locomotive engine horns...train horns will definitely break glass...so I guess some drivers want to watch the truck and trailer burn I guess.

On a couple of my trucks I have 4 but most of my trucks have 2, I also have plenty of trucks with no airhorns (moslty Scanias and 750hp or 730hp engine modded trucks with the Scania horn) The Scania and Volvo FH Classic horns are both great, especially the Scania so I tend to use the horn more in those trucks, most of my Scania's that have an airhorn have the 3rd one (Thunder I think its called) with a few exceptions like the Scania in the 1st pic ;)

I've about 3 or 4 trucks with 4 airhorns like that :)

For drivers who actually use this strange and foreign concept called "common sense", 2 is fine for functionality and aesthetic purposes. 

 

For the "wannabes" who thinks that this is Gran Turismo or Mario Kart, or shouldn't be driving at all in a simulator (let alone in real life), 0...

This, I never use mine though as for me they're purely aesthetic. If I had to put a restriction on them, I'd say 2 maximum, but that's me being picky ;)

I only have two of the same kind on all of my trucks. Mostly for decoration, though. Why two? 'Cause symmetry. There is absolutely 0 need for any more than one kind of airhorn. Add anymore and it just makes the truck look obnoxious. I better not even talk about who puts lots of them and make -constant- use of them. 

 

One type of airhon and up to two of the same for symmetry purposes is far more than enough for both aesthetics and functionality. Same goes for beacons. You don't need more than one (Space) or two (the simple single unit one). It's a truck you are driving, not a Christmas tree.

Do I use those airhorns I have? Rarely. And when I do, I don't blast them like a lunatic like at least 60% of the community does (you know who you are).

I have two horns behind my extra lights on the cabin roof so they are hidden. No need for me to see ugly horns that I don't want. If I want horns I'd want them on the sides of the cabin top instead of hanging in front of the cabin and on-top of it.

 

- No pictures as you anyways can not see mine unless you look from above! :D
