Suggest a good sounding horn

I need a new horn for my W123 as the old one is sounding like a donkey with a cold throat. Any model from any Mercedes will do as long as it fits. Things I prefer in a horn are:
* Ought to sound like $$$
* Loud
* Two different sized horns (low and high tone)
* Non compressor driven

My current two original horns are 4" in diameter and pretty flat, so please tell me if yours are bigger (shaped like a snail shell or similar) cus I have to check if they'll fit.


Cheers.

For my pleasure and money, I would invest in a Stebel Horn.
You have a choice of either a Train Horn, Tractor Trailer Horn or
a Ships Horn. Rated 138 Decibels! Cost: Less than $40.00 each.

Consider just getting brand new OEM horns. You'd be surprised how good they sound when not 20+ years old.
