Bunch of people are running "PIAA Superior or Super Bass Horns" Search the forum for the many threads about this. I like my Supers - much more like a US pickup truck but not overkill loud. The factory wiring connectors fit but the ground circuit is separated on the horn. I think the PIAA box came with dedicated ground wires but I may have ordered the Toyota pigtail kit "frequently purchased with" suggestion here:

I went with the Hella Supertones about a week after I bought the truck. Someone was about to merge into me, I jammed on my horn and it sounded like someone stepped on a duck. New horns are much better, and for the $40 and 20 minutes it took to wire them up one of my easier and smarter investments.

I always thought I had a manly horn, that is until I discovered PH. reality vs expectations.

That video does a before and after, but listening online does not make a convincing argument for a ~ $80.00 expenditure.
They cost more, therefore they get the "premium" moniker.

Hey dude, I've been running this as a replacement for the stock horn since I bought it. It's intended for a boat, but that won't stop us. It'll utilize just one of the dual-tone stock connectors and it's simple to make a bracket to drop it in behind the grille.

One day I'll wire it to its own separate button and have a 'calmer' horn for stock, but today is not that day.

Quality is decent as well; I had moved this same horn/compressor/harness from a Jeep I used to own and had it on there for three years.

I have a cheap 15w speaker installed behind the grille next to the air horn which is connected to the CB out. Decently loud but nothing like the Whelen. Definitely looking to install one of those sometime.

I installed two of these on my 2010 Trail. One low tone and one high tone.
Amazon.com: FIAMM 72112 Freeway Blaster LOW Note Horn : Automotive

Went from Road Runner Beep Beep to American 4 door sedan sound. Not overly loud, but definitely way much better, and people actually hear it.
