Just installed. They're not quite as loud as I had thought, but they work (I was only blipping them though, so they're probably louder)! Dan, I gave you a call, but my horns weren't broken, just some wires were unplugged. I rewired them before uninstalling and they work fine. Yours if you need them!

Josh.

Did the Supertone drop right into the stock wiring or did you have to swap out relay, etc?

I got this and plan to install it today if its easy. The stock horn is pathetic.

It is plug and play with my stock wires. No relay swap was needed. Take a youtube video when you mount them...I'd like to hear yours in comparison to mine, as I believe mine buzz a bit.

I have the same hella horns and just wired them up to the old horn wires. I thought they would be louder too, but wonder it they are not getting enough juice since I am using the old wires and did not do the relay swap. And there is a slight buzz.

Good to know! It always makes me feel better when someone else has the same problem(s).

I thought it was required to install with a relay? I don't believe the stock setup has a relay does it?

I just installed mine. Plugged them into existing wiring without adding new relay. I read somewhere that these are directional so they should ideally be placed in front of radiator (behind grill) facing forward for loudest output. I can't do that because my Allard Intercooler takes up all the room. My current horns (and new ones) were mounted behind and above the right headlight.

I tested them while laying outside on the wing and holy f**k they are loud. 118db advertised. Once I placed them inside and shut the hood they were quite a bit less loud than when laying outside. So if you can mount them behind the grill. The TD5 headlight trim has vents between the turn signal and front marker for the horns to go through unobstructed. Makes sense since it seems to make quite a bit of difference.

They're still louder than stock and I prefer the tone better. No buzzing for me. So does the stock horns have a relay then or not?
