hella air horns, sound like bmw horns, only much MUCH louder. I also have the regular hella piezo horns. Use to make me laugh every time I honked at someone.

these things are ok. kinda loud, ok tone.

I replaced my stock horns with these

but then added these when I decided I wanted some horns that actually do some good.

all you have to do is hook them up with the relay that's supplied(well at least the hella kit) and tap it directly off the battery with a nice 30a inline fuse.

instead of connecting directly to the horn just put a relay inline and have a switch that switches it.

only time you'll need to replace a fuse if if you tied the hellas directly to the stock horn circuit which I really wouldn't recommend, if you used relay to the battery with the stock horn circuit triggering the relay you're all set

phew... i did the relay method.... btw, ur instructions really helped out and damn they're loud!

2 days ago, i was pulling outta my neighborhood, and this old lady in a crown vic was making a Uturn on a no uturn road, and almost hit me while I was pulling out. I rode the horn like there is no tomorrow. OMG, she froze in the tracks and just stared in fear. Sooooo funny! LOL

yeah it's funny I was a little hesitant to aim them down, I thought they would be cheasy and weak the like other ones I have, it doesn't matter which way you aim them, they are crazy loud
