If you work in a state or region that restricts POV siren use, then courtesy is really all you can rely on when responding to emergency calls. The HA-150 Under Hood Stutter Horn Amp gives courtesy a boost by providing a loud and legal*, all-weather, audible warning component to your POV light package.
This professional grade, 100 watt amplifier incorporates the power of a simulated “stutter” air horn with the reliable quality not found in other aftermarket horn products. Its compact, waterproof design offers flexible, easy installation options for any vehicle. And at roughly the size of a bar of soap, the HA-150 is ideal for installations on volunteer POV's, as well as, motorcycles, ATV's, and marine craft. It is also a cost-effective alternative for apparatus, ambulances, escorts, towing, recovery, DOT, or other service vehicles that are not equipped with compressed air horn systems.
The HA-150 can be easily operated using the vehicle's horn ring, or through a separate button or switch. When combined with the Carson SP-200 Switch Panel and the CSP-100B 100 watt speaker, a complete “horn system” is created featuring light control and the ability for the driver to switch between the standard vehicle horn and the louder, more powerful “stutter” air horn. (see the HPK-150 Under Hood Stutter Horn System in the Carson product catalog or website for more information on HA-150 component packages).
The HA-150 was developed to address the challenges that volunteers, working in states that restrict POV siren use, face when responding to emergency calls. Without an audible warning component in their POV's, volunteers lack a primary tool for gaining driver attention and clearing traffic when en route to an emergency scene. By providing a “horn-only” (no siren tones) feature, the HA-150 is legal in most states. As a result, it offers the benefit of a much needed audible warning solution, but without the question or concern of it being legal to use. It is still recommended, however, to consult local/state vehicle codes to ensure compliance with vehicle horn regulations.
