I looked at Grimmspeed, Subispeed, and Subimods. The Subimods looks like the most integrated solution with a relay/plug'n play harness. Grimmspeed has a plug 'n play no-relay harness. All use the Hella horns. What do you guys recommend? With the a#$hole DC drivers cutting in front of me with exactly a car length of room, I'm tired of the "meep" horn in the Subaru.

I have the Subispeed Hela Sharp Tone horns and love them. Install is easy.

Thanks. I'm going to go with the grimmspeed bracket and harness. Theirs locks level with 2 bolts, unlike the subimods one which has 1 bolt. If it's off-level, it'll drive me nuts. Their harness is similar without a relay, I don't need that last decibel, but it'll be a heck of lot better than stock.

For the horns, I decided to try the PIAA superior bass horns. They don't look nearly as cool as the hellas, but I think they'll sound a lot better. I have the PIAA sports in my jeep and they sounds great.

The Subispeed one uses one bolt and one push clip if I remember correctly.

I have the Grimmspeed bracket and Grimmspeed harness... an extremely easy and I believe the cleanest install of them all. I don't know if you've seen my video on it, my channel is in my sig. They work well... one of my friends accidentally walked infront of the car while I was showing it another friend, didn't see him... needless to say he had some ringing in his ears lol.

I'm always very interested in these horn threads primarily because I rarely use my own horn. I also live in the Metro DC region, and believe the horn should only be used in an emergency situation to get the attention of another driver. I certainly don't feel that it's under-powered.

Angrily blaring (especially a loud) horn usually just creates more road rage and dangerous behavior. You may cite counter-examples, but I have plenty of my own.

The hella horn craze was a silly fad and seems to have reduced considerably.

I see too many people now days driving with headphones/ear buds. I don't think they'll hear your OEM horns very well.

This.... they are more functional to me then visual although admittedly the majority of people do it for the look.

I encounter so many motorists oblivious to their surroundings especially those lost in their phones. There have been a few times with the stock horn where they don't even acknowledge you honking at them. One guy just kept driving right into me while i was slamming on the horn... I had to quickly maneuver to another lane and he never stopped like the world belongs to him or something.

It's for the people playing on their phones when the light finally turns green and they sit. I've been through 3, 5 min light cycles because of these morons.

Throw hammers at their car, more effective.

I like your style... :rotfl:
If you are sitting in your car when suddenly a barrage of hammers fly your way, you tend to stop and think "what am I doing that is bringing enough ire to warrant thrown hammers, perhaps I should not do this action any more"

Thought about the upgrade, never got around to it.

Zax has a point, people are arseholes.
