Lightbulb Odd question about my horn.

I was doing some engine bay cleaning, then decided to repaint the bracket that holds up my horn....then noticed this little bolt. Look at the picture below so you know what I am talking about...then I'll ask my question..




So, I was thinking...by turning that bolt I wonder if it's possible to change the pitch of the horn, either to an 18 wheeler boom, or a honda beep. Or is it just a bolt to hold a diaphram in place inside the horn it's self.. Has anyone tried this?

Tanks have horns, they are called turrets. And I answered my own question. FYI. If you want your horn LOUDER then loosen that nut. If you tighten the screw down it makes a little squeek. I can't wait to see how it sounds in that all metal/no sound protected engine bay. muahahahaha!
