You should check out College Hills Honda, they have a nice DIY that will upgrade the Civic's horn to the horn of an Accord. Much louder. Probably next month when I finally get a weekend off I'll install that.

I did the dual horn upgrade from College Hills Honda. Simple plug and play! It sounds like a real horn now...like a typical midsized car. Think of a mini-van or SUV horn. There is a video somewhere of the dual horn upgrade...

Does anybody have a link to the horn on College Hills Honda? Not the DIY but the part. I tried looking but, I got confused.

Everybody everybody... I just did this Horn Upgrade... and it's not worth it! Thank god I had to take my bumper off to do some other work... but save your $20 and do something else to your car... The "upgraded" sound is little-to-no better than the Stock Si horn.. just my $.02

Should have bought the Hella Supertones or the Bad Boy.

Those things are so douchey. Someone sells a video tape of him in his lifted truck going around his neighborhood scaring everyone. I think he may have micropenis.

so the horn upgrade actually works for an '09 Si?

I called CHH and spoke to the accessory guy there about it. He said that they put the disclaimer on the website about how it wouldnt work. He said there was something different between the '08 and '09 horns....
