I honked at a stupid inattentive driver today who looked right but didn't look left before entering traffic from a gas station.

I honked the horn and she didn't even look at me. The horn seemed a little weak. Is it made by Blaupunkt too?

:gr_jest: :gr_jest: :gr_jest:


Anyway, how do I make this horn extra loud? Has anyone changed their factory horn yet?

In the other car, I'm so used to just pushing in the clutch and stabbing the gas as my horn, but this car doesn't do that -- too quiet :D (and no clutch)

i was actually quite impressed with the factory horn on the GTO. the horn on my GTP was pretty wimpy in comparison. i went to speed shop to look into upgrading to louder one. but i would have cost about $100-150, so it wasn't worth it to me.

the horn on my 03 grand am was crazy loud.... and when the bumper was ripped off, it looked like there was two horn units there.... wonder if it has the same plug connections?

Hella Horns

I had the place thats doing my stereo put in dual hella horns. Its so loud now, I almost (note, almost) feel guilty when I honk at somebody! I was going to put in the same air horn that the police use, but i thought that might be overkill; plus i didn't want any bullets going my way. :cool:

I just finished up installing some Hella Supertones I had left over from another car that I sold. There is a lot of room where the stock horns are and they fit great with a little bracket modification. An boy are they loud. I can't wait for someone to cut me off now!!

I ripped that stock junk out. I have a set of trumpet horns from a 73 grand am. Loud as hell.

Yup, always knew these things were pretty stealthy :gr_jest:

try JC Whitney for the horns (the higher the db the louder), unless you want them right now

I have these on my truck and I plan to see if they will fit behind the front fascia on the GTO.
