the horn idea.. i drew a picture.. megaphones are very very loud and often under 5 watts with a 3 inch speaker.. why wouldn't this work with 1200 watts and a 12 inch speaker?\

An exponential front horn...sure it'll work, and with excellent results :)

The problem is, they aren't practical for vehicle use. Even a cargo van would be too small for a properly-sized front horn.

The meanest 8" speakers you'll ever see :D

And an excellent project log of the LABhorns:
