I need a AIR HORN!!

yesterday when i rode into work. i already had bronchitis and it gotten worse through out the day. so i decided to leave work early to head over to the doctor to get it checked out. on the way i was on a 2 lane road, speed limit was 45. i was in the left lane. this POS Chevy Cavalier decided to cut me off! so i had to tap on the brakes and i honked my horn cause i was :BangHead: after being so off cause i was cut off. all i had was this little wussy horn that goes "MEEP!" well i honked and she just laughed......

somebody recommend me a F**king airhorn that i can mount that is hidden. i want something Loud! i'll be wearing my Ear plugs so it won't be affecting me.

Check out FIAMM Freeway Blasters. They are similar to your stock horn but are CRAZY loud. They have a high note and a low note, http://www.fiammamerica.com/Product.asp?ProductID=155

And you can find them at Harbor Freight and Napa. I had a pair of them (1 low tone and 1 high tone) on my truck for a while, they are sick.....

I have an airhorn and people still don't hear me (especially on highway).
It's best to be extra, extra cautious.
Airhorn wouldn't save you from stupid drivers (especially when they are on cell phones or listening to music).

If it were me I'd go with the Freeway Blaster in a low tone by FIAMM, they are electric horns just like your stocker and shouldn't require much if any modification to install.

That would be awesome. You hear this ungodly air horn then a 600 comes around the corner. I have to get one of those!

Stebel looks pretty neat... let me know how it sounds. I had a set of the Fiam dual tones on my truck; they were that annoying hi Euro tone. I want some train horns now..

other option is good ol' Glock... they hear that everytime!!!
