I put the Ear Cannon on my '81 GL1100I Goldwing. Mounted it right where the factory "beep-beep" horn went. Wired it up thru the relay, and blasted it off in my garage. About two seconds later, I heard a return echo from about two blocks away, and every dog in the surrounding area went nutz.
I'm happy to report that I have personally caused several drivers to wake up, spill their drinks, and at least one to drop their cell phone out the window...
I feel so empowered now...and much safer! (Posted on 9/6/09)
I love this horn, it definately is heard by the cell phone morons who think that they can drive and talk at the same time. It has saved my posterior on several occasions. But, unfortunately, it is illegal in Texas. Therefore I use it cautiously and have to hook up the factory tooter each year for inspection. The benefits far outweigh the inconvenience.
This horn reminds me one from a 60âs model, steel laden Cadillac. From the sound of this thing cagers will think it is either a train, truck or some other huge Detroit beast coming at them. It definitely gets their attention.
Though I have not witnessed spilled coffee, dropped phones, soiled underwear or crying children, it is loud enough to say âlook out for meâ. I used it 4X in traffic yesterday simply because I can. (Posted on 9/24/08)
I installed this horn on my '01 Harley Ultra Classic and, after 100,000 miles, on my replacement '08 Utlra Classic. I love this horn. It is compact, easy to install and LOUD. The only problem I had on both these installation is the body of the horn separated from the compressor. This was easily fixed on the road with a one foot long cable tie (surely you travel with these things on your bike). Simply slide the body back into position and secure with the cable tie. It takes less than a minute for this unobtrusive repair. This also happened to a friend of mine who bought the horn on my recommmendation. Another thing that happened to my two horns and my friends it a rather rapid deterioration of the chrome finish. This doesn't bother me much. A litttle more attention to detail in the design and production of these horns would make it the best deal around. Harely sells a similar horn that might be better built but it costs about $130. I'll take the horn offered by Aerostitch with its' minor shortcomings. Ride Safe (Posted on 8/9/08)
WOW! These things are LOUD!!! It could be the must have accessory for your motorcycle. If you can install a car stereo, it souldn't take you but a few minutes to install on your bike. (Posted on 6/26/08)
Is this the horn of Death? No, but it sure comes close!!! It's like triple air horns for your car in a 4inch package! This little bundle of noise will get you noticed! With the high and low pitch it sounds like a train! Never again will I not be heard on my bike!!! Great product!!! (Posted on 6/26/08)
Nothing quite shouts "respect me, respect my space" like this little wonder. This is the "bomb" for real, unless you trailer a Kahlenberg D-2 or a Doran-Cunningham 6-B ship's horn! Seriously, this thing is so loud, it is probably illegal in California by now. I would LOVE to pull alongside Paris and Nicole at 6:00AM, when they are driving from the nightclub back to rehab, and light this sucker off!! Talk about scared straight. Get the wiring kit, and you are good-to-go. This is absolutely the single best farkle you can add to your bike--a real life-saver. (Posted on 6/3/08)
