We consider a two-regime threshold autoregressive model where the driving noises are sequences of independent and identically distributed random variables with common distribution function which belongs to the domain of attraction of double exponential distribution. If in addition, for each and where denotes the convolution of the distribution function and we determine the tail behavior of the process and give the exact values of the coefficient.
