Default Anyone Install Louder Horns ?

The horns on my 2000 seam to be on the quiet side. I want to be able to send a jolt of terror to the person sleeping at the red light. My old Cadillac came stock with FOUR horns installed. That really shook'em up.

Cool pics Nitro.
How difficult was it to remove the front bumper cover?

I hardly use my horn at all. Im deffinitly not one of those people
who blows the horn at the second a light changes, I dont mind people
crossing slow. hell im on wheels I can always step on it after they pass.
and the only thing I can remember using my horn for years ago
was to let friends know that we were out front to pick them up.
Now... hello ...cell phones



I cannot remember the last time I used my horn. nevermind what it sounds like.
but I do know I have 2

if you want a louder horn... check this out... http://www.hornblasters.com . while you're there, check out some of the videos. you'll probably pee yourself. but I was also looking for a louder deeper sounding horn, so i was thinking I might pick up one of the truck style horns at Pep Boys. I think they're like 30 bucks, but I don't know what they sound like. I also wish I could have that really awesome high-pitched *chirp-chirp* when I lock my car =(

Air Horns are very loud.
Those vids were hilarious. Really scared the heck out of those people.

Hmmm....I wonder if there is a way to tap into my rear ELC air system.....naw, not enough volume for a sustained blast.
