I don't even bother to use it, totaly worthless.

I still don't understand why the Fit gets a better horn than the Civics.

Haha, I went to pull a part and got the dual horns from a lincoln town car, they're FIAMMs! Cost me $4.50. I was stupid though, I just unplugged the horn from their OEM connector, should have cut the connector from the wiring harness so I could splice the plug in. Might go back just for that.

I'm going to vampire tap the current horn wire and run that to a relay, I think I can mount the horns in the upper left part of the engine bay (protect them from water, and don't have to worry about cramming them in under the bumper). I'll take pictures.

Did you ever get those Town Car horns working? I'd also be curious about a sound clip and a year range to start scavenging.

hello,
i really want a new super loud horn that sounds like a semi,
do you think there is enough room in that space behind the bumper where a wolo
big horn could fit? they are probably 13-14 inches long

Thanks for the write up. I thought pulling the bumper cover would be a pain, but it's actually pretty simple.

question about pulling the bumper off: do i need to be careful when pulling it off from the fenders or can i just yank on them? im afraid i'd break the clips or something lol.

What gauge splicer do u use to tap into factory horn wire? I have the same horns and been collecting dust for over a year. I need to install them before winter comes.

Good diy.

Did you have any problem with the amperage being adequate to support two versus the original one horn? My factory (2010 LX) only has a 15 Amp fuze for the one horn, I wonder if it (amperage/15 amp fuze) is adequate for, say the two horns that come on a factory Accord?

Sure do not want to create a fire hazard!
