Supertones are ridiculously loud. The Tribecca might be a great option for a better horn that won't make people's ears bleed. I haven't heard of anybody doing it but this shouldn't be too bad. The horn is not a complex piece of machinery. If this works out well, I and many others would probably love more info.
They now come in a variety of colors and I saw one company makes brackets to mount them so you don't have to improvise like I did when I installed mine. The main down side to the red ones is they fade pretty bad over a period of several years, despite being tucked behind the front grill. I think mine are in need of a paint job or possibly replacement - although the reddish/pink (cherry blossom red) doesn't look half bad
Why are people proud of that? Please don't take it personally but that just sounds adolescent to me. I don't want to drive down the street pointing out to everyone how different I am from them. I'm plenty comfortable with my own individuality to not have to literally blare it at ear-bleeding levels to people who could give two shits around me.
Obnoxious should be an insult, not a badge of honor.
I hear you man. But I hate Harley's and big jacked up diesel trucks. I have to assume the guys driving them are getting more out of driving them than pissing people off.
I think a better example are hid's. I hate driving at them. I love driving with them. The horns are annoying to be scared with I'm sure. But if you " need" to use them sometime, you're glad you have them.

Ah, don't worry... I'm not one of those fools that goes around blasting my horn for no reason. I bought them mainly because I like the way they look. I've only used them a handful of times since I installed them 4 years ago. I'm just happy that when I need them, a quick toot gets the attention I need. I'm happy knowing that if I ever had to lean on the horn, I'd get my point across very clearly.
I see your point though. At least I didn't post a sound clip
To wake the sleepy truckers up in front of me drifting all over the road!!!!
I've been run off the road three times by semi-trucks who either weren't paying attention or falling asleep.
Every third weekend I take a road trip from Las Vegas to Boise, ID to see my kid- horns and turbo are very effective in dealing with truckers- one to wake them up if needed, the other to pass them when legal to do so- especially when climbing a 7000 foot peak outside of Ely, NV.
Plus, how crazy drivers are here in Vegas I can let them know my displeasure when they pull stupid crap like pulling out in front of me and slamming on brakes or shimming up next to me trying to take my place in the lane I'm currently in because they aren't paying attention.
