Default Replacing alarm horn with supertones

I have been looking around on multiple forums and google but have not had any success finding an answer.

I want to replace the siren on my car alarm (DEI / Python PF5000) with the set of Hella Supertones I have installed. Does anyone done this / know how to do this? If so please explain how to go about doing this. I am wondering if it is as sinple as rewiring the wires from the alarm siren \ horn and wiring them up to the hellas (power & ground)

any help would be greatly appreciated.

hook the horn output on the alarm up to the car, call it a day, then you get both..

Should be able to set the horns onto a "full attack" mode, so just the alarm siren chirps and not the Hellas..

Great. so disconnect siren power (red) and connect to hella power (red) and I guess that ground (black) can stay as is. I was hoping it was that simple but I didn't want to F up my alarm. Hopefully I will get this done on Thurs.

Thanks

Yeah, car alarms are too common these days. barely anyone looks if you hear one going off. I want everyone looking at my car if it goes off.

Only thing is I have heard that you might need a relay but I figure if I tap into the Hella relay, that should take care of it.

I gave NO instructions on how to do anything, you came up with that on YOUR own...

You eff up your alarm and it's on you...

No need for a relay unless you want to do anything special. I put a 5 wire relay on my siren to a button thats used as the valet switch on the old DEI alarms so that I can make my siren chirp from the inside of my car. Why you ask? so I can piss off my neighbors ankle biter when I get home every day.

Nice... sometimes its nice scare the piss out of someone (or something) now and again. Haven't looked at the siren to make sure there are only 2 wires but I believe there are only two. I know there is a red (+) and a black (-) but now sure if there are additional wires. Regardless, sounds like it should make it pretty easy to rewire.

My exact thought on this haha. Although my first idea was a train horn instead of Hella Supertones.

depending on the alarm model, you can run both horns and siren and yes you do need a relay for the horn.
