So that Hella Supertone Horn 12v kit would be all I need to switch them out, right?
you also need to buy some wire and a wiring kit (that comes w/ crimper and little ends to put the wires together etc...)

i bought mine at wal mart for like 8 bucks or so. the wiring is pretty simple ish but you should take some time so you don't get problems later. also buying liquid electrical tape works wonders.

Haha, true enough Chino...but to answer the poor noob's question, you would need to get about 3 feet of red and black 14-16g wire and run the second horn in parallel with the first. That means having two wires connected to the positive (one for each horn) and the same for the ground wires. Aside from that, you just need to figure how to mount them, which can be the tricky part. A member on here did a DIY on a dual horn setup and mounted one in the stock location with the stock bracket and one on the other side using a modified stock bracket. I'm sure you could probably find it if you used the Seach Function

Just a note, the stock horns are single wire, and ground through the mounting bracket. So you only need to run one wire, and just ground both horns to the mounting brackets.

I mounted mine up to the bumper beam behind the grille, and they look pretty nice there.

That's exactly how I installed mines (hella horns) and I think that pretty much the only place they fit lol

Hey guys, are you using the relay that comes with the horns or not? I'd assume that the car would already have the necessary relay for the OEM horns, but then again the relay must come with the Supertones for a reason.
