I have a VXII (Series 2) Exec - these plus Vy & VZ came with the factory fitted alarm system which beeps a horn under the bonnet (firewall area) if a door or boot or bonnet is opened without first pressing the key fob "unlock" button.

I would like to change the factory horn with something more noticeable / better. What brands are worth looking into? I know Jaycar sell some good sirens but I don't know which ones will work with the factory system. I noticed on the original siren only one wires goes into it. Any assistance or guidance here would be gr8. Cheers all and thanks for your help. :)

get a higher db alarm i think the std one works fine IMHO loud enough for people to notice. or if you like hook a air horn up to it :) it's just a simple switched circuit when vats detects a unauthorised entry (non button operated unlock atempt) it initiates power to the alarm circut arming the horn relay :)

anyone will do as it earths to chassis. the horn style on the commodores are a motorbike style. 2 pinouts only 1 is used (as it earths to frame via mounting)
just make sure it has a simlar blade style pinout or you will need to make an adaptor lead up

so like the good ole days... enny menny miney MOE !! :)
