Denali Soundbomb Compact Air Horn
Amazing performance, even without considering its size!
You want to know how much I love my Denali air horn? As soon as I had used it, I came looking for a way to review it. I couldn't find it then, so I was delighted when I got the invitation just now, 90 days out. I still love it. I needed a loud horn, but wanted to hide it reasonably well. Which is a trick on a '78 Yamaha SR500, as naked a bike as ever was made. But I made a little bracket to bolt to the down tube, and it fairly disappeared, completely out of the way of the forks, however fully compressed they might be. And the sound is marvelous!

This horn is louder and has a better tone than expected. Can't wait to try it out on the road.
The Denali Soundbomb is great, but has a few things left to be desired.
Would have been great if the horn included the wiring.
Not many options for mounting (unless you use a bracket). Being able to access a bolt/ nut from the front would be ideal.
The relay included with the horn was a dud. Had to pick up a $5 replacement at the local parts store.
All in all, I'm happy with the purchase.

This is a great product which really lives up to its name as far as loudness. The installation can be a bit tricky as it is a fairly large unit compared to most factory horns it is replacing. The wiring is easy, the hard part if find a good place to mount it while making sure the horns point slightly down so as to drain any moisture that enters them. I highly recommend getting their universal mounting bracket as that increases your options for mounting. It also weighs quite a bit more than factory horns, so make sure your mounting points can handle the extra load.

Careful without ear plugs
I installed this horn on my 06 R1200GS. Though significantly larger than the stock horn, it will mount longitudinally between the forks (stock location) by moving the the stacked, stock bracket to the right, and attaching it to where the front cowl extension support attaches. The supplied relay tucks nicely in the tray under the seat, atop the other existing relay there.
The horn is obviously louder than stock, and if you're riding without ear plugs, remind yourself of this before using it the first few times, otherwise you'll startle yourself. Its near instant on despite being compressor driven.
My only nit is that the tone is more harmonious (regal), where I'd prefer one that's more discordant, something that says "HEY! Knock it off!!" That aside, the pure volume is enough to get cagers off their phone and out of your lane.

This horn is really loud
I replaced a Wolo Bad Boy Max with this horn on my Kawasakiw Vulcan 1700 Voyager. I have to say that the Danali Sound Bomb is far superior. The dual note makes it a lot louder. Mounted exactly as the Wolo so it was an easy install. I highly recommend the Danali Sound Bomb Compact Air Horn.

Excellent horn for the price. It is definitely loud and gets attention when you need it.

Very easy install on the KLR650 2014 using the bracket and plug/play wiring harness. The sound is pretty assertive, like an Italian sports car, not a tractor-trailer. Nice note to it. Plenty loud. Get's the attention of the cagers.

Best Street Horn Period
Soooo loud and grabs attention fast! Best safety upgrade ever! Mounting solution could be better, but not insurmountable. Get one and use it!
