better sounding horn

I accidentally broke the low note horn on my ZJ when I was putting in my tow hooks. With just the high note it sounds really dumb. Plan on going to the junkyard to find a more "manly" sounding horn. What should I look for?

Older domestic luxury cars. Drivers with hearing aids like loud horns. If you spot a 70s cadillac, swoop in. They're a 4 note where most others are 2 note.

Or add a relay circuit and extra sets of horns off whatever you want. Blending different brands will probably net you extra notes. Adding notes is important because the road/background noise they compete with varies, it's not just total dB.

Well, unless you get a train horn. Then dB rules all. TOOT!

I got the WOLO horns for my F150 when the OE horn died. I just picked up a set for my ZJ from Advance. They are not a direct plug in, but work well and at 115 Db, they are loud!
