Exactly what I did 10 months ago.
The roots windtone got damaged during the service. I felt the roots wasn't that good or striking.
The hella Supertone red grills are very powerful & penetrating. They are very useful on the highways where people trying to cross the road turn to see your car & the bigger vehicles move out of your way without hesitating.
These horns combined with my 100/90 headlamps make my highway trips a breeze! I got mine for 1500 bucks including installation charges.

Pulsar no-longer comes with the original dual horn, I think its better to go for aftermarket brands.

Are there some low pitched horns available, just like the VW Polo ? I like their sound and they seem to be very effective too. Moreover, being low pitched, they are not a pain to the ears despite being loud.

Please suggest.
Thanks!

You can, but ther's very little space in Activa battery compartment to accomodate dual horns. If you fit one make sure you fix a relay(cutout) too, to reduce the burden on battery & wiring.
I have seen/heard some Activa been fit with PNP/Roots horn (Horn sound similar to Skoda, VW, Merc horns)

I would suggest three options (w.r.t space constraints)
1-Pulsar 220 horn set
2-Apache RTR horn set
3-Suzuki GS 150 horn set

If these are dual horns (set), then how can I fit them in the activa's small compartment which has space only for a single horn?

Thanks!

Check out the pics below. The relay is under the odometer.
I've done the same on the Activa as well, but the horns had to be fixed directly to the plastic body(without the metal extension/patti). Getting the placement of mount holes right is tricky though.

Uses the same horn button, and to switch b/w the two(single horn/trumpet horns) I've fixed an extra dipper switch on the right side of the odometer. Please see the 2nd image.

Hi Guys,
Can we use trumpet horns in cars. I believe these trumpet horns are banned by RTO in Tamilnadu. I always wanted to have a pair of these in my Maruti 800. I currently have the Roots Horns (bigger one). It sounds loud but the problem is that while the headlights are on, the horn doesn't blow properly. There is no problem in the battery. Self start and all other electrical components are just fine.

Can you please suggest a good pair of horn for my car.

Sorry for the late reply,you might have to remove the front cover and hunt for a place in the recess ahead of the front storage compartment. I had a KI-HO marvel and had installed roots windtones . I had to drill a hole on the fibre body to mount the horns. Worked well till I sold the scooter to a scrap dealer after 15 years of usage.

Since you already have loud ones, you can try the stock Hella horn pair that comes in swift. About the headlight going dim,please check the Horn Relay.

Thanks rakesh, Will check the relay. also how about having a trumpet horn. I prefer an economical one. and also please suggest a better place to place it in my Maruti 800.

another problem with my current roots horn is that on honking it echos back inside the cabin.
