    In the past I claimed the factory horn is an embarrasement. After today, I call it a safety hazard. Nearly got driven off the road on my way home today. Bloody horn is so quiet, the guy provably didnt even hear it.... I could barely hear it my self.
    So I went straight to the auto part store, got me some Hella Supertones horns. Making it a priority to install them.

    Good to hear.

    Back in the days I had a 89 civic, someone gave me a dual air horn from a Peterbuilt semi truck. 2 feet long horns. Wedge them inside the front bumper. I was running 180PSI on the air tank.
    If I didnt value having a bit of trunk space Id do it again. Nothing like laying on the horn and having people looking around for a semi truck.

    Yes, the hole needed to mount the horn was much easier to drill with the bumper off. If you have a 90 degree drill you may be okay with it all intact.
