Wolo Badboy 419 vs. Stebel Nautilus Compact Airhorn
The Wolo Bad Boy model 419 dual tone airhorn claims 118 decibles. Is this as loud as the Stebel Nautilus Compact? I haven't read any reviews on this one.
The Stebel Nautilus Compact dual tone airhorn claims a whopping 138 decibles (I doubt it has this under real life road conditions). I read on another site that these didn't work out of the box and they don't last if they work, because they start to fall apart.
These are not the same product as I have read in places: marketed by different companies, and have different dB ratings.
They are similar in price, so which one is louder AND more durable for motorcycles (i.e. which will last and take the pounding on a motorcycle)?
Your experiences with either will be greatly appreciated, because I need one ASAP. These cagers on their cellphones around here need a wakeup call from a loud horn; close call twice in two days.
