Upgraded Horns??

Unimpressed with the horn on our Overland, so I am looking to install a pair of Fiamm Freeway Blasters on it. Has anyone already done a horn upgrade?

Am interested in where the stock horns are located and also if they have dual terminals, like the Fiamm's.

Thanks in advance guys...

Ya, I replaced my right "high" note horn with the Max air horn and it works great. So I have the stock "low" note horn and the Max.

Re: Upgraded Horns??

When I researched this, I saw that the WOLO BBB Horn was 123.5dB and the Fiamm Freeway Blaster was 136dB. I installed a Hi/Lo pair of the Fiamm's on SWMBO's Subaru Forester and they were most excellent.

The front bumper cover removal on my Overland looks a royal PITA, so unless someone has an easy peasy way of doing it, I've decided to shelve it for the time being. I'd rather be driving it
