I was wondering how you would properly hook up 2 sets of Hella's? I've seen that around a lot lately and I'm thinking of putting another pair in.

I installed two sets on an STi a long time ago.

Just run two of everything however you will (should) run one set with a toggle switch so you dont keep blowing the oem horn fuse.

And before anyone else tells you to just put a larger amp fuse in place of the OEM horn fuse... You run the risl of an expensive fire over a $45 set of horns.

Wired mine up today. Did it a lil different than instructed (cut out the wiring to original horns step and used a different method)

I must say I am very impressed how they sound over stock. Worth the buy and I'm ready to piss off stupid drivers that cut me off.

It's easiest to get the mounting bracket from Subimods .... I think that's who makes a nice wire harness and bracket

Nope, bolts on just the same, you can add a nut behind the bracket to space it out a bit if you want but it might not be necessary.

How do people install 8 supertones? Do they need to wire them all separately, or can the wires be connected into one relay?

Anyone know where to purchase the hardware that holds the bumper on (2011 wrx). Two of mine broke coming off, too late to try some wd 40.

Has anyone had trouble with the small fasteners on the inside of the wheel wells. There is one very small fastener with a button that is pushed in the middle to release them. I got them off, but I couldn't seem to get is reset. I tried pushing them in already expanded, but it seemed too tight & I couldn't get my fingers in behind to push the pin back in.

I just used the stock power for the horns & added grounds, plenty loud.

Not sure where to get the clips, dealer? Autozone?
As for the wheel well small clip, push the pin outward so the teeth collapse. There is a youtube video called how to remove 09 wrx bumper that shows this pretty well. Lemme know if you can't find it.
I used stock wiring too, and just added a relay from radioshack for $5, easy, and just in case.
