Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Bulb horn question

Seems like placing the reed at the horn or at the bulb is "optional". ?? Was that always the case in production, or is there a correct placement for the reed ? Did it depend on the maker of the horn ?

Logically, it would seem the better result would be to place the reed at the bulb, where it would receive the full force of air from the bulb, as opposed to the bulb having to compress a volume of air in the tube before acting on the reed . . . or does it matter at all ?

It works best at the bulb end. Ford moved the reed there because it works better.
