Best Powersports Horns in 2020



FIAMM 72002 HIGH Note Replacement Horn Review:


OEM horn for Saturn Sky and Pontiac Solstice(except for terminals which are easy to connect). Unfortunately these 2 nice vehicles come with 1 "low" note horn (same FIAMM model numbers as this one). By adding this 2nd "high" note horn wired parallel to the original "low" note horn that comes with these vehicles, you no longer have to be embarrassed when you hit the horn. It now sounds like my Corvette and not like a sick baby cow.

Note that the manufacturer numbers on the original horns and this one are identical. The only way to differentiate between a "low" note horn and a "high" note horn is by the letters L (for low) or H (for high) on the body of the horn. Just look for these as they don't stand out.

I chose to wire the new high-note horn parallel and with the same polarity to the original low-note OEM horn. Do not use the ground wire that comes with the new horn. FIAMM states that polarity is not crucial, but I chose to stick with same polarity.

You'll have to splice the wires that feed the original horn. The space is a but tight, but take your time and you'll be fine. Careful to place the horn clear of the hood and headlight body. I bolted my high note horn near the original, in the cavity in front of the right front wheel but lower than the original horn. Make sure the horn faces downward as the original to help keep debris from entering it. By bending the mounting bracket that comes with this horn 90 degrees, you'll find mounting is a breeze. Use an appropriate size nut and bolt with a lock washer. I mounted it on the cross-member just in front of the wheel which conveniently has a hole already drilled for you, so no drilling is necessary. For looks and safety, I used some wire loom to protect the wires and lubricated the terminals with silicone dielectric to keep good electrical connection.

You may need to replace the 10 amp fuse with a 15 amp fuse. I still am using the original 10 amp fuse and it has held. If it blows, I will replace it with a 15 amp, which is what's in my Corvette. The relay is good enough to handle the extra load. You will find the fuse in the fuse box located above the right front wheel. After installation, take extra care to ensure you have placed the new horn out of the way of the hood and headlight assembly as you lower the hood very slowly. A buddy to help you look would be nice. Good luck.



Wolo (300-2T) Disc Horn - 12 Volt, Low Tone Review:



I wore out the horn on my 04 Sportster and was looking for a horn that would be a good bang for the buck.
After sifting through a dozen candidates this horn floated to the top.
I have 0 regret buying this horn.
It is louder then my old horn was on it s best day and was easy to adapt/install.
Wolo is a well known/established manufacturer and it shows in the quality of the items they produce.
I would say this hits the good bang for the buck mark head on.



Wolo (310-2T) Loud One Horn - 12 Volt, Low Tone Review:


Fantastic! I replaced the stock horn on my civic with this, and it works great so far. To be honest, if you want something loud and obnoxious don't go with this - the difference between my old horn and this is that it sounds a less squeaky, with slightly more bass tone. The price is literally half of what this same part number is listed for at the local parts store. Installation was easy, I opted to cut the existing 2 wire harness of my old horn and use butt connectors to splice this in! Next time around I might try something slightly larger and louder, but like I said - this has been reliable thus far.

Wolo (320-2T) Maxi Sound Universal Horn Review:


My Corvette was purchased well used. The horns were in need of replacement, and I was not looking for anything other than the stock sound and sound level. I shopped and read reviews and found these. I needed horns with two terminals so I could use my factory wiring. Some horns only have one terminal and use a ground for the other side. They were great in almost all respects- price, fit, and sound. My sole critique is that the mounting stud is too short, but I was able to work around it. The remainder deals with how I installed the horns.

The supplied mounting brackets (4) are cheap and very thin (1/32" or .03") so I didn't want to use them. Additionally, the factory brackets have a mounting tab to help support the horn. Since the old horns were spot-welded to the bracket, I was able to cut off the old mounting brackets and use an existing hole in the driver side to mount the horn, which has a 6mm x 1.0 thread stud. The stud is really too short for the thicker Chevy brackets, but since the hole was larger than needed, the lock washer sunk into it partway. On the passenger side, I had enough metal to drill a 1/4" hole. I could not use the supplied 6mm nut and lock washer, so I used a 6mm flange nut I had on hand.

For wiring, I picked up a couple of Delphi Metri-pack 150 female housings (Delphi #12162343), 2x locks (#12052634), 4x mating terminals (15344867) and 4x seals (#15324973). This allowed me to plug in the horns to the factory wiring. The horn kit comes with two black wires with .250 female terminals on one end and ring terminals on the other. There are extra .250 female terminals in the horn kit plus vinyl covers for them. I cut off the ring terminals and cut a pair of dark green GXL automotive-grade wires so the color would match the factory wiring. I crimped & soldered the male Metri-pack terminals to one end of the green wire, and a loose .250 female with vinyl cover to the other. Plugging in the green wires to the "B" side of the housings and the black wire to the "A" side gave me plug & play horns.

Overall I'm really pleased with the sound and fit. You can't beat it for under $25 delivered (I was over the minimum for free shipping due to other parts).

UPDATE August 2018- I bought a set of these for a 2006 Cadillac CTS that had one working horn. They were an easy adaptation by cutting off the old connector and soldering the Wolo wires onto them. They attached to the OEM bracket and fit like stock.



Dorman HELP! 83230 Horn Contact Review:


Bought this because my horn has not worked for 22 years I have owned the vehicle. Finally have been going through it and this piece and a couple Luther’s were miss isn’t. Installed this replacement and some other stuff and now my horn works as advertised!



Wolo (496) E-Z horn Hand Held Electronic Horn Review:


This beats any dog whistle around! 1 of 3 dogs runs free on 160 acres twice a day & when I want him home soonest I stand at the gate & let it rip. He appears within 5 mins from who knows how far out. When the 3 get into doing anything I want stopped I just give a fast beep & they decease immediately from whatever they're doing. And if they're in the yard but I can't see them I give a short burst & all 3 come running. Use it for all kinds of signaling to family members too far from the house to hear a yell - this gizmo is the best - plan to get 2 or 3 more & locate them in the barns for fast access. Even our hard of hearing folks know to look up after a short blast. Too cool!



Zone Tech 5 Tone Sound Car Siren Vehicle Horn with Mic PA Speaker System Emergency Sound Amplifier - 60W Emergency Sounds Electric Horn-Hooter/Ambulance/Siren/Traffic Sound with PA Microphone System Review:


Ok, I admit up front that I may have a bit of an issue here. Too much time on my hands, a 3 year old son and unfulfilled childhood fantasies I am trying to clean up. That said, I bought this for my son's 12v electric ride-on police car. The car came with a "stock" siren/PA system, but the siren was anemic and the PA completely inaudible. Since I am currently involved in a good natured kids electric car arms race with my neighbor, and we have a long tradition of police service in the family, this was a state of affairs that demanded immediate attention.

A bit of Amazon research found this Zone Tech 5. Made for a "regular" car, this affordably priced upgrade seemed to be just what I needed. And at this price point, I could afford to monkey with it to make it work for my particular use case. I ordered it and, thanks to Amazon Prime, it was at my door in a day. My poor wife just shrugged as I giggled with glee. My neighbor had recently seized the lead in our arms race by upgrading his daughter's car with functioning LED headlights and "gender-stereotype" appropriate colored lights on her car's roll bar. This demanded a response and the Zone Tech 5 fit the bill perfectly.

The item includes a bell-type speaker, about 6 feet of telephone style wire that runs back to a mike head with 8 buttons. Some quick drill and screwdriver work had the speaker mounted into the trunk of the car, the cable run into the passenger area of the car and the microphone resting on its mount. It took about ten minutes for me to splice the power wires into the car's 12v system and we were ready for a test.

Stay with me here. I live in a quiet neighborhood that hosts several immigrant families. Many of them have family members who visit from the "old country". When I hit the siren for the first time, a few things happened. One, I found that there is no "off" switch on this device. None. You fire the siren, you're committed. Two, the PA system on mine does not work at all. No using the PA to tell everyone that there is nothing to see here. Three, this thing is insanely loud (a fact I should have put together on my own, seeing as it is designed for actual cars driving down actual roads, not a kid's toy on a quiet suburban cul de sac). In my defense, I did figure out it was loud as soon as I turned it on for the first time. Oh boy, did I. Four, people from everywhere react to a loud police siren near their homes. People from some countries react with, um, animated vigor.

Before I could pull the power lines apart, my street was full of a combination of curious and agitated neighbors, all loudly wondering what the h#$% was going on, what I was doing, inquiring as to my current level of sanity and informing me of the napping status of their children.

My son, however, who had been helping me with the installation, stood looking up at me with the abject love and wonder that all fathers dream of inspiring. As I looked down into his now wide eyes, his mouth opened in amazement that his father had installed such a device on his police car, it was easy to ignore the gathering mob and their verbal pitchforks and multi-lingual torches. In that moment, I had achieved, however briefly, near-deity status in his world.

"Dad, that's mine?! Mommy's not going to like it".

"That's ok, son. Some things are worth mom's wrath. I got this".

I love this siren, warts and all. I will figure out a volume control, an off switch, managing my neighbors and how to fix the PA. All for the love of a three year old boy.
