Default OOOOGA Horn questions

Hey everyone I just bought one of these and installed it. i was wondering if I need a relay? Some people say I do but they don't know why. Does it make it louder?

The other question I have is "Where have you all mounted your horn? I took the windshield washer fluid out and mounted it there.

Thanks for helping

I just googled it for an image, it looks like only one horn right? Some people mounted airhorns near the foglight, if you remove the panel right under it you can see you have room in there. Then there is the snorkel fender area (if you have an intake)... Are you going to get a smaller washer fluid tank?

What are those horns rated at? I believe stock is around 105db, if they're around the same it'd be safe to say they aren't drawing any more current and can be used with the stock wiring. 110 or higher and I would use a relay because it will more than likely sound louder.

Can you pass inspection without it? Not a big concern to others but I would never get rid of it, fear of needing it and not having it.

Just get the relay, materials are cheap.
