Accord horn upgrade

Seems like all the DIYs on here either have broken pictures or missing vids..

Just a quick question about this since I'm going to have my bumper off next weekend, wanna just get this upgrade over with.

Which accord do you source the horn from, and is it the high or low one? Also, is it PNP into our horn clip, or do you have to splice wires? I have an 07 FA5.

Thanks

i think most of the diys used the 7th gen accord (03-07) since they were done before the current generation came out. You want to get the low horn, i dont think the high on the accord and civic are the same but close enough.

I dont remember the wiring on the 07 FA5, at some point honda did add a second horn, i know the 06s dont have it. If you have 2 horns, unplug one and plug in the accord one, bolt it back to the body and it should work fine. If you only have one horn you will either have to swap the oem one out completely for the accord low, or you will have to splice a connector or wire in to get both at the same time.

I think my accord horn got damaged by water. I don't know if I should buy a new one again. Do guys know a way to protect the accord horn from getting damaged since the horn placement is so low to the ground(water damage from rain or puddles, and road debris is a problem)

Point the opening downward so that the horn can't collect water inside.

I didn't do this the first time I did the Accord horn upgrade to my civic (there was no warning about it) so I mounted any which way I had it in my hand (unfortunately it was the open side up). So when I washed the car and was done, I locked the car using the remote and noticed that my horn wasn't working. Come to find out that water had damaged it. Had to get another one and this time mounted it with the open side down.

I have high and low Accord horns on my 2010. They stopped working for a while and when I finally got around to fixing them it was water in them. I took the cone off, shook them out and remounted them with the open side down and they've worked perfect ever since.

I've had mine installed for 2 years. So far so good.

I have the accord low in my 07 Si. Its not very loud still, just deeper than stock. I'd like to add the high sometime as well.

What did you have to do to make the high work?

You can split the wire connection to connect both horns. That's what I did with mine.

This. Used a suitcase connector, ran a wire to the other side and put the high on an open hole. The US spec Si's 08+ I believe have a second horn mounted here making them plug n play. Mines Canadian, never got the second horn.

To add. If I ever remove my bumper, I'll take a pic of how I wired mine.

Why don't you just buy Hellas? They bolt up like any other horn but are a million times louder

I like the accord horns, they have a nice big car sound to them.
