best sounding horn?

I have a '13 LX. Want to upgrade the horn to something way less weak. I don't need a train horn (although it would be a lot of fun), but I want something with a much deeper tone. Suggestions?

I think 2kings has the plug and play oem horn upgrade. I don't have a link, but that might be worth checking out. There's a thread with many replies.

I got mine from College Hills. I bought the sport version. Very easy install, and now no more wimpy horn. Go here:

College Hills Honda has two different horn selections to choose from. The OEM Honda horns and the Sport horns. The OEM horns are more expensive however they offer a slightly deeper tone than the Sport horns and they're OEM so they're less likely to malfunction as opposed to the aftermarket Sport horns. I bought the OEM ones for my 2014 because I like the deeper tone that they have and the fact that they're from Honda gives me a more reassuring feeling.

I have the Sports Horn from College Hills Honda. Less expensive by about $10 and are very loud. I would recommend that you use the mount bars that came the car. They are a little thicker.

I didn't realize that the sound of a car horn was that important.

Is this some kinda macho thing?

Forget about those wimpy-a$$ College Hills Honda horns and get this.....

is honestly not really a macho thing tbh. I mean I do ride a cherry red Honda Elite 250cc scooter that has a horn that belongs in a cartoon. Lol. I would rather have a horn that would actually cause a reaction since there are so many terrible drivers out here

Some of the Harley riders might consider that a bit "light in the loafers," not that there is anything wrong with that.

When ordering the OEM horn, do I need to buy 2? Or does it come as a pair? Thanks!

They come as a set. Here is a sound comparison, Stock, Honda upgrade, Sport.

Also a pic of what the sport horns installed on my 15 sport look like, I like how you can see them through the grille.
