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.

to me? Not really i usually find a annoying horn to piss off cunts
>>
Very. I don't go nuts but I like a horn with a good sound. I stuck a small boat horn on my truck. It's a bit loader than stock and it has that honk sound rather than the normal beep.
>>
>>14230005
louder*
>>
not at all, but it gets annoying doing slow speed manoeuvres where the horn button isn't in the centre but on either side of the wheel and i keep mashing it by accident

It is absolutely imperative that I have access to a separate city and country horn.
>>
>>14229917

I don't think I've ever used the horn on a car I've owned, only been driving for like 4 years though.

I've installed the same train horn on the last 3 cars I've owned.

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.

i'm not alone

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.

Why have a horn when you have an exhaust you can hear from a mile away.
>>
>>14229917
got an old barge horn on my ride. use it all the time
>>
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

the horn on my bmw stopped working and since my exhaust is loud as hell I rev it

>>14230036
I have done this once since my car has the four spoke steering wheel with 4 button.

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
>>
>>14229917
Not really, don't use it too often. My civic does sound pretty beta horn though
>>
>>14230619
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.

>>14230081
>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.

Hi-tone is a little too shrill for me.

Usually, it's proportionally loud to how bothered people are with their penis size.

Pls, downshifting and backfiring is my horn.

My car has to have at least a dual-note horn and recently I've taken a liking to the Cadillac tri-note sound.

Somewhat important.
Honk honk, maddafakka.

>>14229917
I want train and ship horns. I want horns so loud they literally vibrate other cars away
>>
I had a 135db horn on my old vfr. It was so loud it hurt my ears inside my helmet and made cars swerve. A loud horn isn't really necessary in a car.
>>
>>14230635
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.

Anyway to install a musical horn? Like have it play a short mp3 file? Sort of like a ringtone?

>>14230826
ooooooo cool

>>14229917
merci Twingo
>>
>>14229917
one of mine is broken and just makes a quiet "meep" so i like to disconnect the working one and honk at people nicely with the broken one, i get lots of smiles.
>>
>>14230036
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.

same problem
90's honda steering wheel

>>14231480
VW did it too, but even worse.
>>
>>14231500
it's kinda cool to be able to rapid fire your horn, but in retrospect they must have realized how dumb it is
>>
>>14231508
Yeah, it looks kinda neat being all integrated into the steering wheel's design an there's potential for lulz with rapid-fire horn action, but the positioning is just ass.

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.
>>
>tfw you realize that excavators have the squeakiest horns on the planet
>>
>>14229917

I've used my horn maybe once in 10 years. If I didn't have inspections I'd remove them all together.

I took the low tone horn off for epic weight savings already.
>>
I love big honkers
>>
I put an old autolite trumpet-style horn in my truck. Sounds pretty sweet when I use both it and the stock horn at the same time.
>>
>>14230598
Where are you from? This sounds interesting and I wish we did this in canada

is it illegal to put a firetruck horn on your car? Like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiImxG8Zsqo
