Default Is there a louder horn available?

I'm tired of people driving like ********, and still not knowing they did so because my horn doesn't really have any high pitched tone to it. I may as well just pop it in neutral and let them hear the flowmaster. The Buick horns sound much more distinct IMO. My bonne has a horn that you couldn't scare anyone with. I'm sure I could tell a friend to put an ear up to the wheel well to see if they can hear the same noise I hear, then honk the horn and they'd just be like ??? why are you beeping?

It doesn't help that the horn randomly doesn't work when it'* below freezing, and I think it'* in the switch in the steering wheel. You just kind of push on the center part of the steering wheel in hopes of getting a reaction, but then... nothing.

I don't want a horn that you may see on a redneck'* pride and joy (no offense, they're cool, but not for me), but I want something that resembles an OEM horn of another make/model car. Anyone have any suggestions?

Park Avenue dual tone horns will work. MUCH louder, and will scare the crap out of people. I THINK (not sure) they are plug and play.

I took out my high tone and left the low tone. In place of the high tone, I put this:

Only I paid $29.99 for it at Advance Auto Parts.

Hot ooga action in my Bonneville!

You are in luck. Park Avenues have 4 tone horns pitched in A, C, D, and F. All you have to do is get the two you don't have and bolt them up...the mounting locations are there. It sounds like a train

Also, it sounds like one of your horns may not be working?

So get the A and F toned horn? Or is there two tones in one unit? lol. Perhaps one of mine aren't working because it does sound pretty bland and low. Perhaps I'll record it... but then I'll have to set up my phantom power condenser mic or all your going to hear is CLIP lol.

its probably working fine. thats one thing i hate about my bonne, the horn is SOOO weak . and as JDB said, the pa 4 note horn is literally like a train. it would be a good upgrade, especially they way some people drive its fun to hit em with the p/a horns

so you can take 2 park avenue horns and wire them up in place of the stock bonneville horns, with no modifications?

you add 2 horns to the existing 2, so you have 4 total, yes. just wiring needed.
