Mugen bhai i have already brought these horns and both of these horns are original ones, i am sure about this because i have brought these horns from one of my best friends shop.

By the way i have already fitted these horns with a toggle switch but the problem is that these are fitted in such a location by the MASS people that i am not getting the desired output from these horns so i want suggestions from you guys to change the location of these horns so that it will sound better or please suggest me any other good place(mechanic or garage) in Bangalore where i can get it fixed........

Mugen bhai here are the pics of the engine bay

In this pic you can clearly see where i have installed both the horns, the other Hella is in the stock location which is hidden behind the bumper so could not take the pic.




Here is the pic before fitting any horns

Yikes!

Horns should be fitted facing to the outside of the car but your horn is fitted facing into the engine compartment. Forget the traffic making way, blast long enough and the battery will get up and move over to the other side!!

Turn them around dood.

@vijay: i suggest you move the position of stiebel to that of hella and ideally try to fit hella side by side inside the bumper.
remove the bumper and ascertain where the space is and a simple clamp job will give you a good location for hella

@mobi: nautilus will cost anything between 650 to 800 depending on the deal. Again let me tell you that these are not everyday horn, one they are illegal to be used inside city limits, two they (air horn) will not last long as regular horns. The compressor as well as the horn is sensitive to water and have a life of about an year, under continuous use in our driving condition.

I would recommend red grill or Vibrasonic in that order compared to Nautilus.

Thanks for the suggestion dude but the problem is that there is no that much space to turn the Hella facing outwards.
Swift engine bay is too compact there is absolutely no space anywhere so it is very complicated to fit these kind of accessories.

Thanks for the suggestion sir but here again the problem is that i cant fit stebel in the place where hella is fitted, the place is so small that the hella fits there perfectly and stebel horns are big compared to hella's.

But i will surely try removing the bumper and fixing both the Hella's side by side, i had told this earlier to the MASS people but they told me that it is not possible to do so because there is no that much place inside the bumper (guess they didn't have the required type of clamps or they were too lazy to do it).

By the way do you know any good garage in bangalore where i can get this job done?? Because i know only MASS in bangalore and i am sure they wont do it.

Yes it is better to get Roots than duplicate horns.

Roots Vibrasonic will cost you around 700 and Roots megasonic will cost you around 1200.

Vijay..

Who fitted horns like this ?? dont ever go to him for installation.

Both horns fixed wrong, its fitted like it is for your pleasure.

It is better to fit one horn than fit two horns.. go to another installer and get the hella red grill fitted towards bumper. and check the installation guide of stebel.
