Overcoming Horn Shame with Hella Supertones

By Liam Ridings

Cute, high-pitch horns don’t do anything for your credibility on the road.


Just ask Sparesbox Purchasing Manager Aidan.


The proud owner of a 2006 Nissan Cube, you won’t miss Aidan on Sydney’s gentrified streets of European and Japanese hatchbacks. Never one to get lost in the crowd, Aidan wouldn’t have it any other way.

The problem is, when someone cuts Aidan off in traffic, as they inevitably do, the offending driver feels infinitely gratified when they are met with the underwhelming sound emitted from the OE Nissan Cube horn.

Having spent my fair share of time riding shotgun in Aidan’s Nissan Cube, I’ve witnessed the internal struggle that Aidan is forced to endure when it comes time to use his horn. He’s faced with two options; honk (more of a light ‘toot’) his horn to alert the offending driver or keep quiet, hiding the shame of his horn.

Thankfully, Aidan works at Sparesbox, where every automotive problem has a solution.


Enter, the Hella Supertone Horn Kit.


Hella understands that not all horns are equal, which is why they created the ultimate aftermarket horn kit for cars with weak, worn, or old horns- the Hella Supertones. 

The Hella Supertones don’t ask for your attention, they command it. Using a combination of low tone (300Hz) and high tone (500Hz) disc-type horns to project a powerful 118dB of sound, the Hella Supertones make your presence felt on the road.

Ready to overcome his horn deficiency, Aidan ordered himself a set of Hella Supertones from Sparesbox.

Next, Aidan got to work installing his new and improved horn. With some basic mechanical know-how and a little bit of elbow grease, he had his Hella Supertones installed in less than half an hour.


Now, with the horn he’s always wanted, Aidan set about scarring those who had mocked his horn in the past- his Sparesbox colleagues.
