Thanks Jack. That's a good idea if I can find one small enough to mount under a spreader. The one I use now is a horn type, much too large to mount anywhere high but I have seen small "automotive" looking horns that could possibly fit under a spreader. I wonder if they work as speakers that can accept sound input or just self-generated horns?

Found this smaller Newmar PA-30 horn that may fit right in under the radar or even close-in under a spreader. Will have to scope it out. Would really really like to have the horn and p.a. capability in one speaker. http://www.newmarpower.com/Phone-Com...mar-062708.pdf
