Hella Supertones alternatives?
Does anyone know of a solid Hella Supertones alternative? I've been running my Hella/Solecci quad setup for awhile now (thanks Xero287), but I'm curious to see what other people are running. In searching the interwebz, I've came across Stebel Natilus and Magnum horns and Drew888 mentioned looking into a Porsche 911 horn. Are there any other options I may have missed that are worth looking into? Any recommendations are appreciated!

train horn, haha, but you would need a small air compressor on board.

I have had supertones previously and currently have a natilus. Natilus has a higher pitched tone, and at least to my ears, is not as loud compared to the hellas.

I've been looking at the Hella twin trumpet kit. It has a distinctly more "honk" like sound than the Supertones. Sound clip --->here<---

I have 6 Supertones. I had a train horn setup that I could have stuffed inside the spare tire, but never got around to building the bracket I'd need while I had access to a sheet metal brake and a welder.

Here's a comparison of the stock horn vs a Hornblasters Shocker

It's possible that train horn is a might bit excessive on a street car.

I've never seen anybody do anything excessive to their cars in this forum

Hornblasters got nothing on a genuine BN/Sante Fe locomotive setup, lol.
My buddy has a 5 or 7 horn piece from an actual train, talk about bleeding ears!

Yeah, I want to get a Nathan Airchime K5LA one day.

Stang, If you do that then I'll start to tow around a Chrysler Victory Siren

My stock horn has broken so it sounds like a muted duck crossed with a Honda.

But I'm not enough of a douche to replace it with a daisy-chained set of Hellas, or a train horn. I leave that to the smoke stack Ram hemi short-dicked guys in my town.
