So it's been awhile since I've been on here so please skip the judgement/ telling me to search for it myself I remember was the standard reply to everything back in the day.

I've had this 2005 ls for many years now and am in LA. People need more than this whimpy horn up their ass, and I would appreciate a recommendation based on experience.

Also if anyone from the area was up for the job I'd rather pay you than a shop, provided you can prove you're experienced.

Thanks,
J

no idea about the horn, but would love to see what people know considering my 05 horn is lame as hell.

i have considered putting a train horn on, the ones semi's and people who mod their pickups use, just to f with people.

Ebay -- search -- '4 note horn'. Works damm well. Plenty of space under the front of left fender. If you wire to separate push button switch you can retain original horn for use also. Dont forget to put relay in. Cool

I hate my stock horn, it's way too weak. Our Blazer horns are louder than the Impala. Maybe only 1 note is working or something on the impala, IDK.. but I'm reading it's not just mine I guess. Either way... I picked up a set of Caddy horns off a car being parted on CL. They're the 4-note horns and classic Caddy/big car/freight train sound. I haven't gotten around to installing them yet though, and wasn't sure if I could just splice into the 2-horn setup or if I needed to do something different or what (reading about a relay?). Haven't gotten that far with it yet, but would like to maybe this spring/summer.

edit: That train horn system sounds great I'm sure, but that air tank is HUGE. I personally wouldn't want that big of a tank in my trunk, just for horns.

For REDLINE: Yes use a relay with the four horn setup. I used two relays for four horns. Wired to a separate push switch mounted in the center console. Left the original horn setup as it is. Mounted the four horns on self made bracket under the front of the left fender. (Take headlight out) Horns pointing downward. Works great. Makes heads turn. Cool

@IffyG that's not always true - from experience...

Anyways I'm set on buying this kit soon and still looking for someone interested in doing the install locally... if it doesn't happen I have a brilliant guy at the shop down the street who will, so just throwing it out there.

Do you have to use a relay if you just replace the factory horn and splice a different one in?

No. Factory horn is already on a relay. OK to replace factory and splice in second horn . Cool
