Default Loudest horn for around $200 or less?

Anyone have any recommendations for the loudest horn available for around $200 or less?

I rarely use my horn, but every once in a while some retard does something ridiculously stupid and negligent. Rather than embarrassingly toot the wimpy little WRX horn, I need a horn that is going to make them S*** pants.

Any suggestions?

I did do a little searching, and the Hella Supertones came up a lot, definetly budget friendly for only around $60, but is there something louder for a little more?

Your stock horn is perfectly audible, really.

But, if you want a little bit more Hella Supertones are the way to go.

Anything more is just an even worse waste of money in my opinion.

Also, you want to make people **** pants?

i had a friend with a truck that had train horns that was pretty loud. But do like everyone else and just get supertones i mean they give them away sometimes with orders so look around for a deal.

2 supertones will be noticed by anyone.

Not the little car with red peaking through the grill. This car actually needs them since it's harder to see than a motorcycle.

Train horns are funny though, I have neither as I cannot justify wasting money on something I might use twice a year.

Could hit the salvage yard for horns from a (older) American car. May not be the "loudest", but definitely not wimpy-sounding like most Japanese car horns. Or else pick up some FIAMM "Freeway Blaster" in high & low notes.
If you got the cash and the space, forget train horns - this is the hot ticket:
