New Louder horn suggestions

Looking into getting a new horn for the Ranger. The stock one isn't quite loud or low enough.

Here is what I'm looking at getting it is only $27 (CDN)

Thoughts on this one or suggestions on others?

And I don't want air horns.

I finally bought a new horn, the one I posted the link to. When I was hooking it up I found out that the low tone horn was broken leaving only the high tone. So needless to say it sounds a lot better with that new low tone and the high tone together. The new low tone is as advertised twice as loud as the original one.

Sounds soooo much better. No longer embarassed to give someone the horn.

if you wanna spend the money i suggest gettin a small compressor, tank and semi horns..you can get hte horns for no more then 35 bucks on ebay and you can throw a kit together for couple hundred and will NEVER have to worry bout horn problems again
