Anyone have a new, louder horn? I was inspired by how close i was today to hitting this old guy who pulled out right in front of me at a two way stop, so i honked and it looked like he didn't hear anything. I want a WAY louder horn! ideas?

Yep, I'd recommend Hella dual air horns. I had a set of the FIAMMs, and the 'pump' died. Ticked me off, as I now have my factory back on. I will be picking up a set of the Hella duals asap!

I realized this the other day, my horn is quiet and not intimidating at all. It's like you pissed off someone on a moped.

Air horns don't last. After moisture finds it's way into the horn body, it rots the metal diaphram inside the horn and it stops working, plus, the compressors seize up too. These are far better than the air horns will ever be:

I had a set of these on my last car, they were definately the loudest horn I've ever heard. Good tones too.

You can get them here:

Yes, you can use your stock wiring. Just use female connectors and push them into the connector (connecting them to the correct wires, of course). Not hard to do at all.

Here's the sire with the lowest prices I could find -
