Hella supertone

Does anyone have any experience with this horn? I was wanting to replace my anemic stock horn with something a little more "encouraging". Can I use the existing horn harness? It requires 72 watts of power, will I have to do some rewiring? Any help would be appreciated!

I bought a knock off brand years ago and it was super high pitched, not the throaty deep horn sound I was looking for. Don't know about the Hella.

I put in a cheap dual airhorn that is quite loud. it comes with a relay and i just tapped into the existing horn wire. It was fairly easy to install but as you know there is little space, so I put mine under the Aluminess bumper. It will clear an intersection.

here is the info: WOLO Brand
DUAL TONE AIR HORN TRUCK HORN SOUND
118 Decibels-415/450 Hz
I think I got it on Amazon or eBay for less than $25.

I have to remember to be nice and tap it lightly for a nice reminder.
But for idiots, I love to see them jump!

I just ordered this to replace the super hellas. They were better than stock but not much better.

I was considering the Hella Supertone myself a while back and the Wolo looks interesting but like Jage, I was looking for a slightly deeper throatier sound even than the Wolo. Dont mean full size semi horns but something close to the Wolo but a little lower or deeper.

I put the Bad Boy on today. Littler lower pitch I think than the super tones but much louder! Now when someone cuts me off they will be able to hear my displeasure.

Regards,
Keith
