Finally got rid of the weak little toyota horn. I got tired of getting cut off on the road and only having a weak little horn. How intimidating is that. A big 4x4 shouldn't have a funny weak little horn. I know it is kinda ******* but I installed a set of dual air horns. This outta get their attention. To the non driving fool that cut me off today in that little honda. :flipoff1:

I know how ya' feel. I have the weakest horn in my school parking lot. All the girls cars sound more manly than mine. When i honk at my friends they laugh at it, if they even hear it at all. How hard was it to install? How expensive?

It was a pretty simple install. Just had to run a couple wires and set a relay which was supplied. Just removed my factory horn. Extended the horn power wire to the relay. Added a couple grounds and a power wire with a 20 amp fuse and I was in business. The hardest part was finding a good place to install the mini compressor and both horns where they could all be close together for easy hookup. The rear of the pass. fenderwell worked good for that though. I got mine from a friend who never got around to installing them. But I have seen them in Advanced Auto for around $25.

looks awfully similar to my setup. I was too lazy to drill a hole for the one horn to face the right direction since I already had some there that worked well enough. what kinda alarm do you have?

dstrbdone - It's a little too late now, but I actually installed something much like you have for the same reason... :D HOWEVER! When I was getting ready to cut wires from the stock horn (on the wheel) A friend of mine who is involved with johnny law 24/7 told me that that is actually illegal to disconnect or replace the default horn attatched to the wheel... atleast in Ohio. Anything extra (as far as horns or sound devices go) has to be on a seperate button. I found a nice black square button that is extremley easy to push when your right hand is on the stick, and is very well hidden so people dont go runnin' around and blarin' my chromies under the hood... I'll post a pic of my sound bling and the button.

Nelium - As far as install and price goes for mine, since it was a WOLO dual trumped, metal, triple chrome plated horn, it cost me $90 for the kit (called the Challenger EC), and I managed to hide all my wires in between the compressor (in generally the same location), and my dash. I ran it through existing wire loom, or added my own, and everything looks clean... Pics to follow

I amlost think I remember there being a write up years ago that had a Chevy Monte Carlo horn as a direct replacement for the feminine sounding Taco horn.

I have dual air horns as well, I sound like a Bentley. But I mounted my horns on the side of my airbox, and the compressor on the front. Directs the sound nicely.
