    Thumbs down Horns !!

    Is it just mine or do the standard horns really suck

    My Wifes Vectra B has a great horn on it - really loud and sounds the part.

    Mine (Vec C - Energy) sounds like it should be on a Daewoo Matiz

    If they are all like that what have you changed yours too ?

    the standard horn sucks mate..but it's tucked too far behind the bumper to let it sound loudly..

    I'm thinking of putting in twin horns..

    What a Smashing Bloke! I'll have to get you another beer!

    I may pass on the drilling holes in the roof though!

    AWHH!! no sense of adventure..

    you could use a standard truck accessory converter..just wire it round the other way..horn of the 24v side, supply on the 12v side..jobs a goodun..
