Not at all.
I rarely use it anyways. In the past month I've maybe used it 5 times, 3 times were for animals crossing the road (Black bear, raccoons, and a beaver), once to alert someone I had arrived, and one was for a bad driver.
I usually install some 3 or even 5 flute horns in my cars since the standard "beep" sounds like some eunuch tries to say something.
When I want to fucking tell some idiot how much they fucked up there has to be some mad pressure behind it to make things clear and not to make them laugh.
My engine at even 3000rpm is louder than my horn. I bought a cammed V8 with flowmasters it goes Woooom tonk tonk tonk. Boyracers in tuners will give me nods and peace signs and other assorted salutes so I'll blow my hilariously 25 year old OEM horn at them. It goes *merp*. This amuses me greatly.
Volume is more important than sound.
But sound can help your mood as here we communicate with horns; hi, thanks, watch me, watch out, stop, fuck you
>use the horn at least 50 times a day
>tfw the main road either sounds like various engines at 1/2 to full throttle or DEDEDEBEEPBEEPTOOOTHOOONKBEEEPBWAAAAAABEEEPKEEEEKHOOOONKBWWAAAAAAA
On my past few cars id set up this system: id take standard dual note horn, then id go to the junkyard and find a 90s deville. In the 90s, some cadillacs had an option for a 4 note horn system. Shit sounds glorious and is loud as fuck. and its funny when you install it in something like a miata
I got a 2013 civic and its horn sounded like a baby clown horn or some shit
I bought an 08 accord horn from the dealer for 10$ and installed it in 4 mins. Sounds twice as loud and less feminine
It's pretty important.
>wanting those screechy, high pitched subaru fanboy memehorns
They sound like shit. Get some horns off of a junkyard caddy and go for something equally loud but more authoritative and less like a child screaming because a bully took his toy.
>Having a horn.
Pls, downshifting and backfiring is my horn.
Screechy is the point, it get attention better. f you don't like the sound, they have a newer one that's a little more oem sounding but still loud as fuck.
I know that feel. The horn button on my car extends to where the fucking thumb rest is. I ended up printing a placard that says "Sorry" on it because I feel bad for honking at people who don't deserve it.
I also don't want to get shot or beheaded by a cartel member.
VW did it too, but even worse.
>Screechy is the point, it get attention better.
Loud horns that don't sound like shit get attention just fine. I know this from experience.
A horn should be loud and still sound pleasant, something that is grating to listen to like the awful shreik of hella supertones belongs in the packed streets of Mumbai, not on a car owned by a civilized person.
I ride a motorcycle and the original horn on the bike, a Harley Softail, was pathetic. I'd have someone start drifting into my lane and I'd blow the horn and nothing... no reaction at all.
Replaced it with an airhorn. First time I tried it was in my garage and my ears rang for an hour. Now when I have to blow my horn it gets attention.
