"What better to compliment your electrophoretic bumper sticker than yet another device that enables you to adequately express your road rage in a unique and an ear-catching manner? Horntones, of course, which offers drivers the ability to blast out their favorite tune at any swerving, unnerving, or otherwise annoying motorist ahead of you -- and it's sure to have a bit more impact than the meek "honk" (or "clap") your whip emits right now. The FX-550 strangely resembles an average aftermarket satellite radio controller, and is wired directly into your vehicle's horn system in order to blast out one of eight tunes with a press of a button, while new jams (or better yet, sound clips) can be added via USB. So if you're yearning to crank out your favorite angry song with absolutely no mids or lows, essentially ensuring public humiliation while you're attempting to appear incredibly macho. "

I remember that a friend of mine had something similar to this, except the tones were "electronic keyboard-ish", and they couldn't be changed. It reminded me of ice cream truck music. One of them he used for road rage.... To make a long story short, he missed the road rage button on the panel a few times, and ended up playing "happy birthday" through the horn instead Very Happy

LOL, it would make the guy that just cut him off feel like an ass. Smile

Agreed. We eventually took that out and put air horns in...but the pump competed with the already strapped electrical system of the truck (1000 watt stereo), and it just wasn't a good idea.
