Default Upgraded the horn

Hi

From my previous posting, I am really happy with this car. Always get something like 55 MPG per tank. The only problem I have is the sound of the horn. I found it very embarrassing to honk to be honest. Anyway, make the long story short, I have upgraded the stock horn with "Wolo Model 320-2T Maxi" and it works great. All at sudden, I feel the car is added with more value. In case you are wondering how the new horn sounds, I found a link from youtube

The day i bought the car, I swap the original demeaning horn with the Honda Accord Low Tone one (thanks FNG). Day - night comparison!
I kept the original one stocked somewhere and was thinking if i could somehow have them both under the hood (the original is high pitched, the Accord bass tone one). What extra fusing-wiring should be needed?

Hmm I never tried the horn on my Honda. I do have an original Road Runner horn from a Plymouth, I migh toss it in. It makes that meep-meep sound.

That's great! I don't like the sound of my horn either that's why I rarely honk. I've been meaning to have it replaced but didn't really had the chance to do it.
