Hella Twin SuperTones, available from Susquehanna Motorsports. Mount them in the grille where nothing blocks the tone, and be prepared to move the world when you honk. I love mine.

Kevin

p.s. Someone will post a link, or just search for Hella horns

I bought 2 FIAMM standard horns, one low, one high. I love the difference. The only tricky part is that impreza is only wired for one horn, so you have to make a wire harness to accomodate a second one.

You can make one with a whole bunch of electrical tape, but I chose to do it the right way, and crimp on some weather-tight connectors.

Its a pretty simple set-up and cost me about $30 for 2 horns, wire and conectors.

If you can't figure out how to make the harness, or need a bit more info, just pm me, and I'll draw you up a simple diagram.

Good Luck

Any sound clips?

Actually, if you walk into your local parts store and buy a Fiamm or a Wolo, your ears won't be able to distinguish them from the Hellas, but your wallet sure will!!!

Another vote for the SuperTones. I put them in last weekend. They fit and look great in the grill. They wire right into the stock harness, and I was up and running in about 30min.

All I need now is a Stupid Ugly Vehicle to try and cut me off...hehe

Otaku

p.s. I also pissed off my neighbors whilst testing these beauties.

Once again:

Hella Supertone Install

Hey Subie Gal, you get those professionally painted (i.e. clearcoat and all that jazz) or you repaint them yourself all the time (i.e. Subie Gal has a slight neurologial problem between her and her subie )?

If you are painting them yourself, whatcha using?

There is nothing like SuperTones. My Rs is a commuter from Long Island to CT. and having a loud (very loud) horn is a matter of life and death on I95. Mount 'em in the grill and have a "blast".

Have a Nice Day?

I was told by one of the guys at the dealership where I got my 2.5RS that there is a second horn connection on the right side of the car. He said they are wired for two horns but only have the left extra wimpy horn put in. I haven't looked for mine yet but just a heads up.

Gggrrrrr, don't even get me started on the horn in my Subaru! My horn is so weak it almost says "Thank you for cutting me off!" when I honk it. I desperately need a louder horn. All my friends make fun of my ***** horn too!

I'm not sure about the newer Imprezas, but the new Outbacks have MUCH improved dual-tone horns. My dad bought a 2000 Outback sedan and its horn will make anything jump out of its way. It's much louder than my horn.

The horn on the WRX isn't bad. It's loud enough to get peoples' attention (which I've had to do way too often, sadly...Oregon drivers suck). When I get home late at night and use the remote to lock the car, the horn is disturbingly loud. I keep worrying about pissing off my neighbors. :/

MM.. gonna pant my supertones white. should look great behind the grill.

Subiegal: You sure the horn didn't just launch them off the road? Did you see if blood was coming from their ears as they ran off?

Yeah, the WRX horns are much better than 01 RS. gawd.. I need my supertones!

ya know, I got the hella twin electric horns, but not the supertones; they seem just about as loud, and it's a more spread out pattern (less directional)
don't let the cost of the supertones scare you away from hellas; mine cost $26, i think, and came with a relay; they mount up right behind my grill, and work great....

I bought FIAMM air horns. They work great. Plus they sound different than the disc horns. Different is good.

EDIT: Oh yeah. About $35.

Hey wonko, read your manual. There are directions for disabling the audible signal for alarm arming/disarming. Press and hold the unlock/disarm button, and then press the lock/arm button at the same time. Hold for at least two seconds. I think the horn will sound either once or twice to let you know it has been disabled. Repeat the process to re-enable it.

I think Cobb Tuning has them also. Go to www.cobbtuning.com or call 1-972-771-1555. They are really nice there!

Would this twin Supertone setup be as loud as a stock VW or a stock Crown Victoria? Those are really good stock horns but ours are kind of muted to say the least.

I want an aftermarket horn too, but something with more BASS. The horn that I've heard were.. clown-like? I'm thinking trunk/boat AIRHORN. Do any of these horns offer the bass? thanks a lot.
