Tribeca horn upgrade for WRX?

Anyone tried doing this? The horn on our '09 Tribeca is a lot more assertive than the one on the WRX (2011), curious if anyone had considered or actually performed such a swap.

Does anyone know if something like that exists? Seems like a good mod, providing you weren't planning to replace the downpipe (cost/warranty issues).
