So my husband bought me a drop in horn from a marine supply store, and was looking around for the original horn for the cx3. We did find it, but haven't installed it yet.
My question is: the horn in active alarm mode sounds loud, but when you sound the horn in normal operations, it sounds pretty wishy washy, like another poster commented, it's as if you're saying....uh, uh, excuse me?
Also if you go one further step and lock the car so that it beeps, that beep sounds louder than the actual 'normal' horn sound.
Are there two settings, or two horns, or ?
And, looking at the various posters who have retrofit horns into the existing wiring, really...you need to remove the bumper and grill? Thanks for any comments.
Agree with Vandal. My former GTI, for such a little car, had a horn that said, HEY.
I tried looking at settings for the beep adjustment - haven't found anything yet to alter. Maybe not available in CA vehicles?
And if cstone is right and all cars are as well sound proofed - then even the cx 3 horn to others would sound as 'meh' as well.
