I have 48 Volt battery pack is there any electric horns that will work on that voltage?
im using a DC-DC converter, I think it is rated for 36-90v to 12v

This sport is very dangerous.
Please make some movies once you get healthy again.

I had the impression that your setup has plenty of power to use on the streets with safety. A real sad thing the controller fail. I saw that you checked the controller temperature in some point of your ride... How hot it was?

did you open the controller? if caps are blown, there may be liquid inside case. if fets blown, there may be burn marks around FET legs... my controllers sometimes get so hot that solder inside melts and shorts something, often the CA speed wire that is soldered to the top of the shunt...
does the CA come on when power is connected?
a lyen ebike tester is very handy, especially for troubleshooting hall/phase wire problems.
