    If there's two spade terminals on your new horn, connect pos to car plug and jumper second spade (neg) back to the center mounting bolt. Mount as usual.


    Will weld for beer.

    is there anyone here did a 4 horn setup?

    just wondering how it'll sound installing two different set of horns? I just recently changed to the new Bosch Evolution horn but my EC6 still works fine and im thinking of installing it again.

    just wondering??

    On pressing your horn button it will sound as if two cars are pressing their horns at the same time .. haha.. LOL

    Depends on how well made your relay is. Most vehicles here have 2 horns from factory. But that might not be as common any more. The car I drive has a pretty crappy horn to start with and I wore it out pretty good over the last few weeks.

    Hehe @Eggman

    i managed to install my EC6 again + the new bosch evolution horn and its loud. i love how its sounds.

    maybe because the EC6 has a higher tone and the Evo has bass tone.

    Listen n watch how loud.
