I’ve heard the air horns and Stebel horn are woefully unreliable. There have been good reviews on the Denali Soundbomb though.

Fiamm wants you call them a ďprojector riveraĒ instead of air horn.

So I did my own install today. Mine are the Hella twin air horns like above. Great instructions from @Outrun .
I used the OEM horn bracket. Just drilled a hole in the middle to mount it. Attached each horn to the holes on each end.
For the compressor there was a PERFECT hole already in a piece of the frame. Mounted it right in there. In pic 6, You can see my sharpie pen pointing to the bolt I put in an existing hole to mount the compressor. It’s like it was made for it.
Put in a 20A fuse as well and bob’s your uncle. Sounds great!
Super easy. The only tough part is getting both your hands in the front area at the same time. Lol.

Itís not a question of if, but when the air horns will fail guys.

Iíve had air horns for years on my special cars and never has one failed. My favorite was the French Maserati police horns I put on my 1973 Opal GT.

You must use your horn a whole lot more than other people!
Get out of my way you old lady! Lol

Question about the fuses.
At the recommendation in previous posts, I replaced the 10A horn fuse with a 20A fuse.
That’s kind of making me anxious. Seems to be counterintuitive. Couldn’t that be a fire hazard? I think the compressor is 15A.
Thoughts?

I've used Stebel, Fiamm, and Hella over the years in various cars and no failures for any, YMMV
