Default Non-audio question

Alright so I've come to the conclusion that the horn in Yvonne a.k.a. Vonny The Bonne sounds like an old man screaming. I want to change this. Problem is, I have no idea how to do this. lol. I want to replace it with an electric horn that has a bit more umph. The one I was looking at was either this one http://www.superiorhorns.com/air-hor...-air-horn.html or this one http://www.superiorhorns.com/air-hor...-air-horn.html. Is it basically plug and play? I've never fooled around with horns before. lol. Any help would be great.

Hmm. sounds too easy. lol. Happen to know anything that would be louder? Without having to go to a train horn since there'* not much room to mount 5 horns or anything. Is there room to mount 2 horns anywhere? I'm thinking about this http://www.wolo-mfg.com/xtreme.htm....the red one with the 2 horns towards the top. Is there room anywhere to mount the horns?

I put two high horns into my 99 Bonneville. No longer does it sound like a man screaming. Here'* what my 94 Bonneville sounded like with one stock low tone horn and one ooga horn:

Really? Have any pictures? I really like the horns but I need to find a place to mount them. I love the ooga horn. My friend had it in his car. Made me laugh every time.

No pics that I can remember having, but I took out the battery and replaced that horn with an ooga one. The horns just have two wires, positive and ground, and the rest of the wiring is somewhere else. I think the sides are different in the 96-99 Bonnevilles, so the low horn is behind the battery and the high one is by the air filter.
