Changing Honk Sound

Hello everyone,

So I honked someone today.

Then I realized how pathetic the sound was, muscle car, with a high pitch beep. Not aggressive at all.

Do any of you have experience changing the horn to a deeper tone?

Should I just be looking at generic methods of doing this, or is there a special way for the Camaro?

Thanks!

I believe I read somewhere, that if you blast your horn for 18 seconds, it will put itself into 'SET' mode, allowing you 9 options (1-9) of different sounds. choose wisely

It's not working! The only thing I get is a bunch of angry looks from other drivers.

I love train horn videos. If you get train horns, please make a video. That is all.

On The Subject of Train horns, if someone is trying to get LOUD we do offer Chrome Trumpet Setups. "This horn has a 145db +- 10db sound output, from 150 PSI max pressure." Just the right dbs to scare that prius off the road!
