I'm looking at upgrading the OEM Horn on SE. Seen posts re Soundbomb. Does anyone have any comparison re Oxford  Foghorn in comparison to both OEM and Soundbomb?

Went for the Oxford Snail shell horn in the end. Very impressed with quality and very easy one for one install. Definitely a vast improvement on OEM horn and all for 9.99 inc postage on Ebay.

Just to add some another option for a replacement OEM horn -

I bought a FIAMM 72012 Low Note Replacement Horn off of Amazon and I am happy with the tone and volume. It certainly isn't as loud as the Wolo Air Horn on my 09 650, but it fit perfectly in place of the OEM horn.

I do wonder how it would compare to the Oxford unit that Tonybro ended up with.

Here is the link:

Obvious and clear tone horn, without frightening every OAP that you pass. Snail like construction and feels and looks well made.
 
A vast improvement on the OEM Horn, which i could just about hear in my helmet.

I recently purchased the soundbomb, but can't figure out where to put it. The shape and size are such that I'm drawing a blank on how to accommodate it anywhere on the front of the '19 SE LT.
Have any of you done so successfully?

The denali website shows a mount that allows you to put it on the left side of the engine.  I am not sure you will have much luck stuffing it under the beak???

The Oxford snail horn was a straight one for one replacement, three minute job. Positioned the open snail aperture to face to rear, to prevent any water ingression at high speed.

Thanks! Sorry didn't see this until now. I guess I turned off reply notifications. I'll look at their site again and see what I can come up with. Now that we've got another hurricane coming in, I guess I'll have some time to play with it while the wind blows outside.
