Looking for replacement horns - v.Mustang

The stock horns on my Mustang (2001 Bullitt) have seen better days. I believe there are two, per most cars and I believe one is a lower tone and the other is a higher tone? That said, I have only a weak higher tone now.

I am looking for more punch, but if nothing else just as good as new. I also prefer they install with no modifications but isn't 100% necessary. I just looked at the Hella horns, and while the DB is good, the sound is way to feminine (ex. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XLULsqTIpA). Anyone got some recommendations?

If I had a truck, maybe
I am looking to just replace my stockers. I am not looking for JC Whitney air horn kits, etc. Something that bolts into the stock locations, stock power plug if possible, etc. I have heard some stuff about old Cadillac horns, but they can only be had from a junkyard something I don't want to mess with unless someone has a set or know where to buy them...

It's likely water or dirt got into one of the units, leaving you with only the high tone.

You can either clean them out with an air compressor then give the electrical contacts a quick sand down and lube with dielectric grease or even fetch a pair from the junk yard... just about any late-model Ford horns will do, though there are some more potent or interesting offerings from other models (Jeeps have a wonderful horn, but it is sort of suitable to the whole safari SUV look).

The best bet would be either replacing them with new OEM or even better look into some nice quality aftermarket horns.

I'm going to get a nathan airchime with a 5 gal compressor once I find a reasonably priced used FJ cruiser.

Or you could pull one off a ferry

If you live in a densly populated area, a loud horn is essential. I can vouch for those Hellas that were posted earlier, they're badass. My friend had em on his x5. Make sure you have them installed with a relay so they get all the juice they need.

Thanks. I'll give the cleaning a shot. They've been like this for a while, I just forget about it until I use them

As for the Hella, I have a vid above. I personally feel the tone is a bit to high/famine for Mustang, although they are loud.

Hella makes all kinds of horns.

My car uses two, one is 450hz and the other is 520 or something. Dual tone is nice, otherwise your car sounds old-school or like something from "cars" the movie. A good blend of decency and GTFO, it's pretty loud.

The best horn I have ever heard was the one from my grandmother's '72 Country Squire wagon, had that deep two-tone thing going that just hit all the right notes, and gave train horns a run for their money.
