the siren that came with my car alarm isnt loud at all (imo)... so I was wondering, can I just buy one of those sirens off ebay and swap it with my current one?

here's an example of one: http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=14934&item=5726506398&rd=1

I dont actually know which I'd get .. there seem to be a few to choose from.

Thanks

Personally, I like the factory BMW sirens, they have that shreaking noise, I don't know if they're loud enough, but I'm sure you could wire up more than one.

I actually have an aftermarket clifford alarm.

I'm also considering adding a siren instead of replacing.. not sure yet.

yes you can wire up a higher DB siren.

you can also wire up 2.

you can also get a backup siren.

If you really want your siren to be loud then don't put it in the engine bay pointing up... put it behind your foglight / rad tray and point it down at the ground... it'll be MUCH louder in all directions.

if you need more info, just ask.
