Hella makes two (that I know of) supertones kits. I recently installed the 85115 (118dB 300/500hz) kit, which ran about $55 on eBay. It came with the horns as seen below and a relay. You can generally find the 113dB 300/375hz kit for a bit cheaper. I mounted them behind the grill and they are loud to say the least.

I put em in my 84 wagon two hellas plus two stock horns = REALLY FREAKING LOUD!

The last time I did this I just used what I had in the garage.
Two horns, one from a Chevy and one from an XK140 Jag on a Chevy relay.It made an interesting dual tone and was good and loud.
Junk yards are full of horns you can use.

A more serious problem arose, my 91 legacy has a leaky sunroof. There is a good post with some good advice on how to fix it.

will add horn from 1971 GM truck

I used to run AM80, but you get so used to 114dB that it starts to sound puny. I have been using AM100 for over two years, and I am still impressed with the way they COMMAND attention. In city driving, windows open, they still surprise me.
There is plenty of space to mount them between the radiator and front bumper, and blast straight out!
I advise serious care if used on pedestrians, they will shock - possibly anger ;-)

I've got a Fiamm horn that I got at the local auto parts store and all I can tell you is it's really crazy loud...and manly. It has two horns and has a low tone and a high tone at 120 decibels and it bolted right in into my wife's 93 Legacy and my 2002 Legacy. It took very little effort to install. It sounds like those freeway blaster horns in Europe. They were $25 per car (a low tone and a high tone for each car) plus tax.
The Hella's are great, but for the money I'm with Strakes. The Fiam's work great & are loud enough to get you noticed. I don't know where the horns are on a new Legacy, but on my Forester XT they were uder the left front fender.
