Install of Truck Air Horn Viair System in Chevy Silverado Truck

David from Fredericksburg, VA emailed pictures of his install of an Assured Performance Air Horn and Viair Air System he purchased from Assured Automotive Company.

Dual Trumpet Truck Air Horn Viair 150psi Kit

David installed the Dual Trumpet Truck Air Horn and 275c Viair Compressor 1 Gallon Air System in his 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab 4×4.

Assured Automotive Company sell Train Air Horns as well as Air horns for Trucks and Cars.

Air Tank Location in Silverado

Air Tank Mounting in Silverado

The first thing that was installed was the one gallon Viair Air Tank.

The Viair air tank was installed in auxiliary battery tray behind the headlight.

Using the exiting holes, the tank mounted perfectly with ease.

The Viair 275c Compressor was mounted behind the front driver side headlight near the tank.

The Viair Compressor is behind the splash guard and is securely mounted using the 3 of the required 4 bolts, with 2 addtional holes needed to be drilled.

Because the compressor is basically mounted to a body panel and the frame, you can hear and feel the compressor when it runs.

David states that the sound and vibration of compressor in cab is tolerable and definitely can be lived with.

Now for the fun part, installing the Assured Performance ACHRSK-106 Truck Horn.

You can see the backs of the horns on the right side of the picture.

The install of the horns were quick and clean.  David mounted the horn vertically behind  the grill, near the Viair compressor.

Two holes needed to be drill in the grill to mount the air horn bracket to.

The decision to face the horns vertically, with the trumpet opening facing downward is a great decision.

This doesn’t allow any moisture from rain or snow to accumulate in the trumpets or in the diaphragm housings.

All horns should be mounted at a downward angle as much as possible.

Once the grill was reinstalled everything is well hidden from the outside of the Silverado.

From the inside the engine compartment the only thing that is really visible is the Viair air tank.

That is what we call a super clean install.

The included pressure switch and relay was wired in the engine compartment near the fuse box.

The trigger wire for the relay, the wire for the horn solenoid and some quarter inch tubing for the gauge was feed through the cabs firewall.

A hole was drilled near the brake booster and reservoir.

Custom Wiring Install of Truck Air Horn

After the tubing for the gauge and the relay trigger wire was ran into the cab, it was feed into the Chevy Silverado’s center console.

Another wire from under the dash that was an ignition source was also ran to the console.  These are only trigger wires, so installers can use thin wire like 16 gauge.

The two wire were connected to the switch in the gauge panel.

The tubing was plumbed to the gauge with the included compression fitting.

The wire that was feed from the horn solenoid was ran under the dash to a SPDT switch so user can switch from OE horn to Air Horn.

When steering wheel horn switch (OE Switch) is pressed, it will now sound the air horns.

David did a great job installing this horn.  He stated his friends are envious of him.

We are confident that David will be back when he needs another Air Horn for Truck

2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS-Air Horn System Installed

Jon H. from Virginia sent us some pics and info of his 2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS six speed with an Assured Performance Horn and Viair Air System

Jon purchase our 140db Dual Trumpet Truck Air Horn Kit with the Viair 400c Compressor and 2.5 gallon Tank Kit.

The truck horns went in behind front Right fender liner without much problem.

Left side was too crowded to use.

As you can see the horns are facing forward for the ultimate sound.

The Viair Tank, pump and controls went into Left Rear Quarter panel storage area.

We ran 40A line from battery, and relay current from the 12v outlet in photo. Controlled by steering wheel Horn button.

The pump is quite loud attached to the inner fender, but is ON so seldom that it is not a problem.

We needed additional hi pressure hose, so used some 150# truck brake line hose. It is more pliable and easier to install.

The kit was complete and the instructions were excellent. Installation took 12 hours.

It is of course VERY loud. The only thing I would change is someday perhaps to a lower note. I am looking for ‘Ocean Liner’ sound.

“Highly recommended. Thanks”

Assured Automotive Company Thanks Jon for the pics and info!!

“BEHEMOTH” Air Horn/VIAIR 20005 Kit Install F150

Joe of Memphis Tennessee sent us some photos explaining his install on of the BEHEMOTH Train Air Horn – VIAIR 20005 Kit from Assured Automotive Company on his 1989 Ford F150. Joe purchased this kit in December, and had it installed in no time!!

The pictures below show the mounting of the “BEHEMOTH” Triple Trumpet Air Horn.  Joe mounted the trumpets on the passenger side of his F150 in front of the rear wheels, outside of the frame rail.

Joe aimed the trumpets at a downward angle to help ensure proper drainage of contaminants that get into the trumpets, preventing trouble down the road. As you can see from the second picture, the horn cannot be seen when looking at the truck from the side.

The next step was wiring the horns.  Joe wanted to use his OE horn switch(steering wheel) to activate the air valve on the BEHEMOTH air horns. He also did not want to loose the ability of use his original horn if needed.  He installed a 3 way switch on his dash(see photo below) were he can flip the switch from street OE horn to BEHEMOTH Air Horn. The air valve (solenoid) on the BEHEMOTH Air Horn can be used on a 12v-24v dc electrical system. The solenoid has 2 wires, one is ground and one is positive coming from your switch. It does NOT matter which wire you use for ground/positive.

Now Joe has the horn mounted, it is time to install the VIAIR 20005 air source.  Joe decided to mount the VIAIR 20005 Compressor Tank Combo behind the rear seat of his F150.

The compressor can be loud when running, so this might not be the choice mounting spot for everyone.  Joe installed a piece a 3/4″ aluminum square tubing about 18 inches long. He bolted the VIAIR 20005 unit to that, then secured the tubing to the interior floor board with self tapping screws.

Joe ran the wiring and the air line for the unit through an existing hole in the floor board.  Joe wired the system using a relay so the compressor will only turn on when his truck ignition is in the on position.  He also used a 20 amp inline and wired directly to a battery 12v terminal.

Great job with the install Joe!!!

It looks AWESOME!!!

All of us at Assured Automotive Company appreciate your info and photos
