I've driven a van in Manhattan and I don't think I could have figured it out without the helpful horn taps from the locals and cabbies. Interblog did a better job putting her desire for a better horn in context on her blog but here are a couple pics from that post:

Driven everywhere- seldom, if ever, have used the horn-
Sometimes horn blowing has nothing to do with clear and present danger, but has plenty to do with road rage-

I have only used my horn a couple of times.

Once in Las Cruces New Mexico in the downtown area I pulled up at a 3 way or T intersection. Left lane turns left, right lane turns right, except the semi truck in the left lane decided he was going to turn left. Some how, some way, he heard the meep meep of my feable horn, otherwise our Interstate would have been scrunged. It was close, but again he somehow heard the horn.

Taking the advice of some in this thread, I bought a pair of Hella horns and installed them today. The stock horn is behind the grill on the right side near the headlight. To gain access the grill must be removed. There are four torx screws across the top of the grill. Remove those and pull the grill straight up to release it. There are five tabs on the bottom which fit into an obvious place. Less obvious are the two hooks on the back of the grill about halfway up that fit over the metal tabs. See below.

I removed the stock horn and its bracket.

There wasn't enough room to mount both horns on the right side. I mounted one there using the original bolt. To mount the other horn, I drilled a hole in the plastic above the radiator and used the original horn mount to mount the second Hella unit. I used a thick nut to space the horn down to clear the grill.

I cut the original horn wiring and soldered two leads onto the harness. To get the power to the second horn, I used a couple piggyback clips on the right side horn. On one side I attached the leads from the original wiring. I then made up a harness to run to the other horn and clipped them onto the other side of the piggyback clip.

They are not air-horn loud, but are a big improvement over the stock horn.
