    Default Making the horns more audible to others

    '04 GP

    I've noticed that the horns are pretty much pointed into the engine compartment. This is great for passing inspection, but other cars usually cannot hear me when they are changing lanes without looking (or any of the multitudinous other ways people drive like idiots).

    Has anyone re-aimed their horns for better horn performance?

    Any other way to increase the effectiveness?

    This definitely is a solution.

    Are the horns working properly? Facing one direction won't make that much of a difference, unless they are against a solid surface that is muffling/muting the sound. You can add a dual trumpet air horn kit from Hella or others, usually around $30-50.

    Buy those big round horns that all the ricers have behind their grille. They're loud.
