Hey guys,

So, I've just swapped over the trumpets to new ones and guess what, I forgot to mark which colour goes to which plug on the compressor. PROBLEM IS there are 7 different plugs, there are only 5 horns and the plugs are numbered as opposed to colour coded like the rings on the horns. The compressor was already there in the first place, so I don't have the diagram... would anyone know if there's somewhere I can find it?

If anyone is using these horns or knows what the numbers mean in relation to the colours, please, please chime in and help me out! I can't figure out which hose goes where!

Much appreciated.

I don't think his compressor is for a 5 horn Dixie.

Cheers for that diagram, still though, I think I may have worked out what the numbers mean so I'll let you know once I've given it a try. If not, I'll just have to wait a few more days until my new kit arrives! Better be a good neighbor and wait until at least 8 am until I start blasting the horn on this fine Monday morning though  icon_smile_big

i didnt know there was a dixie horn that had more then 5 trumpets. ive always used the jc whitney 5 trumpes ones with great results.  if its playing a little slow up the guage on the ground wire. it speeds it right up.

Say what?  There's an 11 note version?  Which one was dropped?

Yeah  Grin  12 notes is correct but most horns only play 11. The missing note is the very first one.

Haha, it plays 12 of course! I'm not out to embarrass myself!

Just bought a new set though, I'll put this current setup in the H2 for when towing the General  icon_smile_big The missing note is usually the last one I believe?

Here's what the new ones will sound like - it's close enough anyway (though note 6 or 7 is a bit high): http://www.syuanen.com.tw/SOUND/AIRHORNS/SN-5MH/5MH-1.wav

Yeah, I got hung with one of those back in HS in 1987.
