Iv got a really nice, extremely loud air horn, but it needs 24v 3amps to run. I hooked up two batteries in series to test the horn but I don't want to install 2 more batteries in my truck. Does anyone have a 24 volt set up for something like this? How did you do it?
that looks like a great option but im not sure what the diff is between a step up converter and a step up transformer. and if the horn needs 3a do i need a converter that goes above that for the initial surge? im not to electronically savy
The way amperage works is that a device will demand a certain amount of power in amps, and the power supply will either be able to meet it, or not.
Think of it in truck terms. Lets say you have a 4,000lb trailer. You can tow it with a Ranger, maxing it out; or you can tow it with a F350 and have plenty of power to spare. It doesn't hurt anything to have the extra capacity, you just dont need it.
