Horn Problemz!

I went through the carwash recently. i got home, got out of my truck, locked it, and when it honked at me to let me know my doors were all shut...it was kinda screechy! I have been wanting a new horn lately anyways. If i were to get a new horn, what should i get????

i'd like to see some good replacement horns that just plug into the wires thats already under the hood, i'd really like something a little deeper sounding than stock.

So are train horns hard to install? will it even fit?! They are pretty big and have an air compressor to run them right?

Here is what I got for my wife's car. Haven't had any problems with it, but I mounted it in a different spot so water wouldn't get it in again.

Pretty good, louder than the factory horn (Dodge Stratus), and a little lower tone. But if you don't like it, take it back.

Hella Supertone horns are pretty sweet, and very loud. Kinda spendy for a horn though.
