In countries applying the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic, usage of audible warnings is limited, and allowed only in two cases: [10] If you are new to installing car horns, then don’t worry, it’s fairly easy to do. It’s more a matter of finding everything and connecting everything properly. Dr. Richard E. Rodda (11 August 2012). "The Peninsula Music Festival - 60th Season 2012 - Program Notes".

New York: Chilton company. January 13, 1910. pp.125–126 . Retrieved January 20, 2011.A traditional style automobile horn includes an expansion chamber cast into its body, once spiral shaped, to better match the acoustical impedance of the diaphragm with open air, and thus more effectively transfer the sound energy. Sound levels of typical car horns are approximately 107–109 decibels, and they typically draw 5–6 amperes of current. The Lovell-McConnell Manufacturing Company of Newark, New Jersey bought the rights to the device and it became standard equipment on General Motors cars.

[9] Ships signal to each other and to the shore with air horns, sometimes called whistles, that are driven with compressed air or from steam tapped from the power plant. Low frequencies are used, because they travel further than high frequencies; horns from ships have been heard as far as fifteen kilometres (ten miles). [1] Traditionally, the lower the frequency, the larger the ship. The RMS Queen Mary, an ocean liner launched in 1934, had three horns based on 55Hz (corresponding to A1 ), a frequency chosen because it was low enough that the very loud sound of it would not be painful to the passengers. [2] Modern International Maritime Organization regulations specify that ships' horn frequencies be in the range 70–200Hz (corresponding to C ♯ 2-G 3) for vessels that are over 200m (660ft) in length. For vessels between 200 and 75m (660 and 250ft) the range is 130–350Hz and for vessels under 75m (250ft) it is 70–700Hz.

Below is a list of the best loud car horn upgrades that are direct replacements and some of the loudest available.

Typical frequencies of a pair of horns of this design are 500Hz and 405–420Hz (approximately B 4 and G ♯ 4, minor third). A horn grille is a part of some designs of car or other motor vehicle that has an electric horn, such as a motor scooter.
