aloha,

i'm looking to replace the stock horn with a stupid sounding "low-tone" horn i found at low cost. how fun. anyway, trying to figure out where the horn IS turned out to be pretty tricky. i had a few friends lookin' around under there trying to find it, but mostly everyone just got angry. i asked the honda service people about it and they didn't seem to want to help me with that. so if anyone knows how to get to this elusive component i'd be happy to hear about it. thanks!

It is not a matter of how often the horn is used, but rather the effectiveness of it's operation when you need to use it. A loud horn is a must when someone on the highway tries to change lanes into you without looking. This has happened to me a few times. A couple of times the other driver did not even hear the stock quiet honda beep and almost caused some serious carnage. I have a FIAMM Freeway Blaster low note horn sitting here. One of these days I will get around to installing it.

I have 3 in my car. A air horn in the back where the mufler was, a klaxon up front and the regular horn. I put a foot pedal shift to activate the non standard horns. Easy to remove at a later time if needed. Have fun, Rick

Need of a horn.

I put 2 extra loud horns in my insight. One high tone and one low tone. I did this after 3 different SUVs tried to run me off the interstate at night. They just did not seem to hear the little tweeter of a horn that I had in it. I work at night and have to drive through Atlanta to get home. The next time, a truck tried to swithch lanes on top of me and my new horns really got his attention.

In LA and NYC folks wear their horns out from usage :)

I'm confused as to why you want to replace the horn. How often does one really use their car horn anyway?

Using Jackmpg's expert instructions, I successfully installed a Fiamm Freeway Blaster Horn, it has an interesting reverb with the OEM horn, plus it is much much louder. I mounted my behind my radiator, so the cone would face toward the front of the car, pics below. I had to remove part of the air filter to get to the place where I mounted it, I also needed a slightly longer bolt.
