Default I have a new toy for my motorcycle.

I just installed a 139db horn on my SV, check out the Youtube video (not my bike in the vid).

This thing is obnoxious!!!

Hrm... I likey. Any reason this couldn't be car mounted? I use my horn in the 350z so often I think one of the two horns is busted... seriously. It sounds kind of wimpy anymore.

This would be easy to hide somewhere in the engine bay and/or behind my grill.

How loud is this thing? I have no clue how 149db compares to a normal car horn... The reviews look good though...

I had that on my buell, but it wouldnt fit on my vrod, so I put it on my wife's car-and forgot to tell her. First time someone pulled out in front of her and she hit the horn she damn near lost control! I was in trouble for a while, but she likes it now.

Not bad, It came with a sealed relay which lives under the seat. I built the wiring harness myself with stuff I had at work.

RB, yes it can be used in a car as well.

Reminds me of a guy in high school who added a second horn on a timer to his Peugot. Went beep, beep, HONK; when he held the ring down.
