I recommend the Stebel compact Nautilus for horn replacement. I've had one on my motorcycle since '05 and @139dB, it gets their attention. It draws considerably more current than the stock horn, so use a relay.

Most people almost never use their horn. It kinda figures that you are a New Yorker. I on't care what the horn sounds like, usualy people hit the horn when they don't really need to and just end up making everyone else angry.

That's one reason why I prefer Uber drivers, when it's your car, there's a shift in mindset about how you drive, being a fairly new car that you own, you'll make sure you treat it good and don't put it in situations it should be in.

I installed these [ame]http://www.amazon.com/H31000001-Universal-Sharptone-Panther-Yellow/dp/B00R3O0Y0M/ref=sr_1_1?[/ame] last weekend.

Removing the front bumper was a pain in the ass, there's like 40 plastic clips you can potentially break (I broke 4), and the space where the stock horn is doesn't leave a lot of room for an additional horn but I was able to squeeze the horn relay and second horn in there.

Monday morning QB here, but you would have been better off with the Stebel Nautilus - both tones in one unit - 139dB output. ;)

Can we get a video of the stock horn. I'm interested in how it sounds.
That's not something i've typically seen in reviews, quite rare since not many people think about how the horn will sound, this will be something someone does from seeing this thread.

I have yet heard the horn on a 2016 Civic. I am waiting to purchase so by the sounds of it the next time I go for a test drive I will have a special treat to look forward to :)

I use my horn constantly. This one is especially quiet and I can't even hear it over my music. BUT I love the retro, small retro Honda, sound.

Yes, unfortunately the horn is VERY wimpy, to say the least. I cannot understand how Honda could put such a WEAK horn in such a cool car. It almost seems like a mistake and perhaps deserves a safety recall. It is a safety hazard, imho. Too bad it seems so difficult to install a nice safe louder horn.
