Car Horns

Thursday, November 15, 2018 1:43:00 AM Asia/Calcutta

Horns are typically installed so a vehicle can alert other vehicles and pedestrians of its arrival or
passing. Horns are not essential to driving. In most countries, they are only used during
emergencies. Car horns are located on the steering wheel for ease of use. Most countries have
a limit on the decibel levels of a car horn and it is set around 80 to 94 dB. In India, the decibel
level should be at 94 dB at seven meters in front of the car.
There are different sounds that different types of horns emit. Each car or manufacturer will
have its own OEM horn. The problem with stock horns is that not only are they quiet they also
often sound bad. Most of the OEM horns lack full-range sound. Adding a low tone horn to the
stock will make it sound like how it should have from the factory.
The housing is identical for both high and low horns. The only other difference is the diaphragm
inside and the frequency that it vibrates at. The diaphragm travel distance on some horns can
be adjusted via an external screw that will change the frequency of the 'note'. The low tone

gives a bellow sound, while the high tone gives an audible sharp horn sound. They need each
other to produce the correct horn sound amplitude. If any of them is missing, your horn will
become almost inaudible. Different dual tone horns work in different ways. There might be two
horns in one unit or they are designed such that they produce two distinctive tones.

Nitrogen versus Air—what is right for your tyre?

Thursday, November 15, 2018 1:37:56 AM Asia/Calcutta

Is nitrogen good for your tyre? Let us understand the basics. According to physics, all gases
expand and contract as they are exposed to hot and cold temperatures. The same applies to
tyre inflation pressure. It may rise and fall with respect to the ambient temperature, which is
about one psi (pound per square inch) for every 10°F. Always check your tyre pressure before
starting a long drive. It is advised to check tyre pressure before the temperature rises as the
heat generated from driving affects the pressure reading.
It is essential that we take good care of tyres to increase its longevity. The key to proper
maintenance is to maintain proper inflation and follow the recommended inflation pressure.
The user manual in every vehicle has recommended pressure value that needs to be
maintained for excellent service and better control of your vehicle. Most tyre manufactures
advice people to check tyre inflation pressure at regular intervals. Often, it is once a month
depending on usage, condition and driving habits.
