Not got the Horn

My 08 Speed Triple horn sounds pathetic. Is this a fault or are there louder options?


Spanner to ride.

There's plenty of louder aftermarket horns out there, I think Hella do some? If you want the nuclear option have a look at the Denali Soundbomb

Have been meaning to ask about this. I fitted a mini soundbomb a while back as the horn on my 04 S3 was so pathetic - tried a new standard horn before fitting denali, and that was the same as OE one.

Mini soundbomb on another bike of mine is far louder than on the S3 - even controlling for the horn itself by swapping them over. I'm not too knowledgeable on electrics, so would be interested in any explanations people might have for this.

fwiw the mini soundbomb is still way way better than the OE horn

Cheers. Basically any after aftermarket 12V horn with the right mount will go right on.

Stebel nautilus is the way to go for $40 and an hour of install time. 9 years and tens of thousands of miles later still going strong and still makes people smile when
sound like a Mack!
