I’m beyond ecstatic. They used to have the horn but got rid of it. This will be amazing. 

These kinds of things are cool, but It's hard to believe this horn will make it through the season, at least at its current power.  130db will cause hearing loss.  For a fun experiment, go grab an airhorn and blast it without hearing protection.  Your touchdown horn is nearly 4x that intensity.


But hey, if you blast it for 1/2 a second, it might be okay. Also, from the above source: 

"For children, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends no exposure above 120 dB."

Why not just back it off to 115db or a little lower?  It will still be unbelievably loud.  130db is negligent, and IF anyone suffers damage, they would have a good case for a lawsuit.  Why would Purdue even open itself up to liability like that?
