Sure changed horns on my Supra, European beepers, like American two note horns, sold just about anywhere, Fleet Farm, Walmart, any auto supply store. Found 150 db horns for my motorhome., 130 is more typical for automotive. Problem with purchasing one, have no idea what they sound like until you buy one.
30's and prior cars had the horn mounted on the headlamp bar, but later between the radiator and the grille. Wasn't a problem as there was plenty of space, is now with unibody, the shod between the radiator and grille is attached underneath so the only way to get at the horns is to remove the bumper first. Two horns are located on either side, high and low pitch. The horn relay is located in the underhood fuse/relay box, but under the top, have to take that apart to get at it.
Have no reason to replaced the horns on my 2017 Limited, two note and plenty loud, good old American type. If they do go bad, covered by that six year warranty.
Boat has a real expensive chrome horn on it but has screws, could take it apart and clean the contacts, also has a pitch adjustment but adjusted for maximum current. Automotive is throwaway.
