Default Surround-sound horns...

So some crazy woman about plowed into me on the freeway on Tuesday... Fortunately I upgraded my crappy factory horns to the Hella Supertones. So I have the factory low horn plus the two Hella horns, and it sounds good and loud. But, on a cue from my friend, I was thinking, all that sound is being projected forward... What about mounting another set of stock horns in the back angled outward so people on the side/rear can hear me too? I just so happen to have a extra set of hi/low factory horns...

Basically, I'd need to figure out a good mounting place, but I think that somewhere on the rear subframe (this is a 97 Legacy GT) they would fit with the factory brackets. It would just be a matter of running a wire to the back (probably feeding off the Hella horn relay?) and making sure they won't get thrashed on gravel roads... Then I'd angle the brackets just a little bit to point at the rear corners of the bumper.

Has anyone done this? Any good ideas? As long as the bracket is grounded I should be good, right?

Thanks!
Aaron

I say put em on the back bumper near where the license plate is or just attach em next to it. Might look a lil weird though. It would make people pay attention for sure.
