Are you SURE these are legit and the OP isn't working for this site or something? There's like NO specs for the item on the page and no pics or anything...and why even the low price and coupon discount? Seems fishy like my ex-girlfriend...

EDIT: I went back to the site's homepage and I can't even get to Supertones product page from there, not through the category menus or through a search for "supertones" or "hella". What's going on??

They are actually much louder than stock. Plus I painted the rims black so you cant even see them.

Seems like it's cool to me.. I ordered some, emailed them, and talked to them.. I ordered at noon, and they have already shipped out.

The reason they may be blowing these out is that you can't find them on the website, so their sales have been relatively slow. Here is some reviews of the vendor: http://reviews.pricegrabber.com/stre...tocom/r/10809/

It's just weird how this deal/discount isn't advertised even on the main page where other discounts are shown..and again how you can't find the Supertones page anywhere without the magic link the OP gave..hmm where did he even get it? Seriously, you can't get to the page any other way..

It's an Indian-made kit, the only one currently produced according to Rallylights, who used to carry a German-made version as well.

That sucks... if I remember correctly, the German-made Supertones are 118 dB and Indian-made Supertones are 113 dB.

I'd rather buy the louder German ones.

This pair of Hella Supertone horns reads "Made in Germany" on the front diaphragm and "Made in India" on the rear part of the housing. Apparently, these are made in India, under "strict supervision" of the Hella engineers, using German-made internals.

Note that there are some 100% "Made in India" Hella Supertone horns for sale that do not have the same rated sound volume; make sure you get the German or German/Indian horns.

They're expensive (see chart above); this pair cost $69.99, about twice the cost of a pair of Freeway Blasters.

The factory claims that these are rated at a claimed 118 dB at an unspecified distance, but we averaged 107.7 at 2 feet away, still plenty loud, but -10.3 dB off the claimed maximum output.

The interesting thing about the Supertones is that to the ear they really don't seem to have much more volume than the stock horns. And the tone doesn't seem all that different from the stock horns either, yet they recorded the highest sound levels of any of the horns in this comparison.

They do have an annoying sound quality though, with a sort of dissonance that's grating, and that's probably good. They should command attention.

Can someone take pics of the horns they ordered from this seller? Preferably close up, front and back. We all know what it looks like on a Subaru, I'd like to know the specs/details of this particular set.

Thanks.

Thanks for the pics. Does it say Made in Germany anywhere on the front of the cone?

Just for reference, the part number listed on the website is apparently a manuf. number. I typed it into google with supertones, and all kind of links came up with the same number, Summit being one of them. So the kit they are selling, or claiming to sell, is the standard kit. We shall see, tones on the way.
