Another common question that we get asked is “How loud are your horns” or “What is the decibel level of this horn?”. It’s quite understandable. After all, we do claim to carry the loudest horns you can buy. Well, this week we get a little nerdy and talk about the science behind volume and how it is measured when it comes to air horns and train horns.
Just like everything else out on the internet, when it comes to decibel ratings, especially with train horns, there is a ton of misinformation out there. Just because someone advertises their horns to be the loudest or a certain number of decibels doesn’t mean your ears will agree when you receive it. With this guide, we hope to give you a better idea of how it all works, so you can tell the difference.
