Glad to see that you were "on your toes" Dan!

I know Nothing about adding pics or vids, but it is possible to 'embed'? a pic or vid into your post.

There is a Thread available in the 'drop-down menus' to describe How, I've seen it linked.

There is an adjustment screw and lock nut on most horns that can make quite a difference, sometimes.
Try a 1/4 turn left and lock the nut. Check volume. Try 1/2 turn right and lock the nut. Check volume. Which way helped?

Adjust in 1/4 turn increments. Re-checking each time.

Best if the horn is Not jammed up by or against other crap, which muffles it.

First thing I did was put a Stabil Nautilus on mine where the originla horn was. It is loud as all get out. They WILL hear you! I had to use hose clamps to get it firmly mounted to where I would feel comfortable off road with it. It's not a light horn. It is a LOUD AZZ horn. Think loud AZZ truck horn.
