Re: DIY Horn Upgrade Mod - Updated Jan 12

Tue Feb 28, 2017 11:54 pm

Every time I blow my upgraded horn I Love it. It's so nice and loud and makes the cars in front of me move quickly.

In July they will be in my LEAF 4 years.

PIAA 85110 115db 400HZ + 500HZ Sports Horn https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00067BWBI/re ... Tyb6WVA3SJ

But I do want to get some Truck horns with a compressor. Sometimes you just need some Truck horns.

I bought the Wolo (320-2T) Maxi Sound (under $20). They sound great, and are pretty loud. I think it sounds a bit louder than the stock horn in my Honda Odyssey, which has a pretty loud horn.

Does it say how many decibels?

The ones I installed are 115db and 400HZ & 500HZ

So they play two different tunes at different frequencies at the same time. Sounds like a European horn.

It'll be a secondary extra horn just for special occasions. I'll mount a button inside the center coin holder (where the Parking brake is in the 2011)

When you get around to the truck horns, please post how you did it! I'm ordering the parts to upgrade my normal horn, but I really want a truck/train horn as an additional horn.

Will do. As soon as it gets warmer out. I want to put everything under the hood. Don't really want half in the trunk. So have to figure out if there is room for the compressor and tank up front. Plus the horns.
