haha.. maybe one of the two horns are out.. there are two horns located in the car, one has a higer pitch one a lower pitch, maybe your lower pitch horn is not working, or not even in the car, as i noticed you have a CAI, usually some require you to remove the second horn or extend wiring and relocate it.

mine is wimpy too but i dont care, i usually dont use it much.

Yeah, I'm thinking it must be broken too, cause I quite enjoy the sound of mine. If you want to hear a really wimpy horn, try an Escort ZX2.

If you care enough to do so, make a sound clip or take some video that includes the sound of your horn. We'll tell you if it sounds broken or not. Maybe someone else can upload a sound clip of theirs. I quite like mine.

I won't feel very manly if it turns out whate we consider adequate you consider, well... pussy-ish
