Default So, my horn is a weenie

My 05 GXP horn (when I can find the sweet spot on the steering wheel pad to make it work) is lame.

It'* the 92 pound weakling.

I have this awesome car that looks all flash and goes like stink, but makes a squirrelly peep.

Has anyone replaced their horn with something more manly and authoritative? If so, where did you find it?

One of the two horns on mine has gone bad, and the one that is left sounds pretty sad. Perhaps, you have a similar problem?

GM typically used a two horn system. One high note and one low. You'll want to replace the low note.

(I noticed this weekend... that Rob'* GXP has the same problem. )

i have a problem with my alarm beep when I lock the doors. Certain temps, for some reason, make it either loud or really vague.
