    I like it. Much louder than stock which is what I wanted so people actually hear me. I think the sharp tones are a little louder but you can definitely hear both. People couldn’t hear the stock horns when they’re merging into me at 65 mph :rolleyes:

    I don’t know if anyone still watches this thread but I don’t know how to connect the relay to the stock horn wire. I have the power connection for the battery, the individual horns, but I don’t know how to connect the final part. Can anyone help?

    Terminals 85 and 86 on the relay are the relay coil terminals. Connect terminal 86 to the factory horn wire that previously went to the horns. Connect terminal 85 to the body.

    This was what I was talking about, thanks @Muddinfun, I just hadn't read that far yet. I'm still very new to electronic components so I'd be horrified if I messed everything up.

    I used the factory wire, then grounded the other wire to the chassis. No relays. Simple.

    I would imagine where the ends of the plugs go to the horns. I did this mod awhile ago in conjunction with Hella's air horns.

    You can always trim some spades to get them to fit the existing connector.

    So, us the stock wiring coming into the stock horns for power, ground the SuperTones and I'm good? No need for the relay?
