Do you have any audio of the horns and do they bolt directly to the stock hardware or do you have to mount them differently?? Thanks!!

I am currently running two Hella Supertones off of the stock wiring harness with absolutly no problem. The only thing that was really needed was a couple lengths of grounding wire with some connector ends and ring terminals to ground the horns to the battery...

I love mine, and they look sweet

i've had the supertones for about a year now. i wired them with a relay, so they're getting full power from the battery- this makes a huge difference. i had to test the horn so i had my girlfriend honk it while i stood about 10 feet in front. she honked for ~ a second and honestly, i think it shook up my innards- it actually made my stomach feel queasy. i've honked at friends and they say the same thing. find someone near you with them and experience it for yourself!

The sound is really nice, and loud enough that there is no way someone can ignore them. I am certainly glad and they look real cool too. I have the 118db horns but I know they make a 113db set too. They are loud enough to startle people hundreds of feet away. Anyone with in 5-10 feet will feel a slight ear piercing effect, IIRC hearing damage can occur at 125-130 db within that distance. I have heard sets run off the stock harness and ones wired with the relay and I have heard little to no difference. I even bought the inline fuse and planned on using it before deciding not to cut my horn harnesses.

Well maniacs are everywhere! But to answer your question, you can have the OEM unit AND the hella horn both hooked up at the same time if you like.

Sorry Fogrider, just saw this today. I am no longer living in NH but used to be in New London, guess I should update my profile. I really like the horns though, and anytime I show them to someone they are amazed. They definetely saved me atleast once already, as even dumbasses on cellphones cannot ignore this much noise. Someone honked them in my driveway yesterday when I was sitting 6-8 feet from the front of my car and it kinda hurt and made my ears ring

You can definetely run these with the stock horns still in place, but it does make things a little trickier(ie. splitting horn harness signal). I just ditched the stock discs all together as they are fairly insignificant

Well I see you're in Oregon and I know the drivers there, believe it or not, are 1000X better than the crap out here in Philly (I lived in Portland for about 6 years). People may be slower there but they follow the rules. Out here, it's just a free-for-all atmosphere and quite frankly, people don't care. I think these horns may help people "realize" they are not doing something right...or get me shot. Anyways, I just ordered a set

So, so, so true. People out East can't drive (as a general rule).

I heard from someone that the supertones sound loudest when you aim them down. Is there any merit to that statement?

I wish I could quote a certified test to answer this question. In my opinion I like installs like Wagon Joes ^ where you get the directional effect. Usually you want to honk at someone in front of you.

I do hope this helps,

I talked to twisted STi about this yesterday and we seemed to have figured out the problem.

These are flying out the door!

Bump for a great safety upgrade!

I think I might pick up a set of these as a gift for my boyfriend soon. I love these horns...they are so loud! The first time I heard a set my eyes were this wide:

The supertones ROCK! They're are nice and loud and far superior than the puny stock horn. I drive around with my hand ready to blast the horn at any douchebag that wants to cut me off!

Does the stock horn bracket work, or do you need to use the supplied kit bracket?

You use the stock horn bracket and add some wire to ground it. I used some 12 gauge wire and bought some of the male/female connectors from radio shack to hook it up. None of the factory wiring should be cut.

I took both of the stock horns off and used the new bracket kit and center mounted them. You need to make 1 extension to get the right side horn to reach from the old connection to the new horn. You also need to make 2 ground wires with connectors to ground each horn. It says in the installation instructions not to use anything smaller than 14 gauge I think, but that was a while ago
