    This is a guess, but i would say one is probably high pitch and one low pitch.

    The 2 sounds blend to make it sound better.

    Shanes right.

    Most MK4s have a two tone horns.

    One will be at 400Hz the other 500Hz. If one "goes" you'll know about it as it sounds cr4p.
    They're about £10 each too.

    Lower models shall we say. Seems the 2 horns were fitted on the higher spec models, Elegance, Sxi, Sri etc. The Club etc only got one horn.

    I've looked properly at the EPC.

    Yes Base models have the one 335Hz horn.
