It's made in such a way so that probably no one can open the horn without breaking it.
Thats true-am happy that my horn is back to form at 139db.

Hey these stebel horns are a good idea, I like them for rally use. I've been off rallying the WRX and almost hit deer. I could have used a good horn like this over OEM and maybe scare them away. Thanks for sharing!

I had shifted to steblus natalus from roots to get through the crazy traffic. the horn was wired with the same at the old horn. The sound is great, but i have been observing that it is loosing power when i press the horn at a stretch and also the head lamps loose power. Can someone put light on this issue. What could be the problem. I am ruuning on brand new amrongreen battery. Is it an issue with the relay. advice...

Vinod, since you have wired the horn with the OE wiring, it is advisable to switch to minimum (Finolex) 4mm wiring as L2D as suggested.

Also, even though you're running a new battery, with the amount of lights you have on your car, the battery will be stressed

Get your electronics evaluated for the battery that you're using. And you CAN switch the relay if required, but the bundled one is sufficient otherwise!

Thanks ankit, i shall re check the wiring as you have suggested. I am sure the battery does get stressed due to the add ons, but most of the lights are leds, which consumes very less power...but yes last week i had my ICE upgraded with hertz amp and polk sub..now that could be stress as you indicated..

I fitted a roots vibrosonic and I find it realllly loud and annoying .. and since its fitted in the front bumper its actually even louder than my stebel nautilus. Has anyone else found this so ?

Could actually do with some recommendations for something a bit more friendly

The easiest way will be to tune both to produce less sound, especially, the low frequency one. Myself too planning to do the same to the Vibrasonic.

I had a roots windtone before this which I think is similar to the symphony. One of the horns conked out due to water entering it. So was looking for something a bit more durable and something slightly louder but the vibrasonic seems a bit too loud

Please post back if you manage to get it done. Will check with my electrician too to see if this can be done

It will take not more than five minutes to do it. If mine was easily accessible I would myself have done it earlier.

Question

I don't know if this is the proper thread to ask this

Does fitting Power Horns (more than one) or extra lights put extra pressure on the ECU/ECM ?

Anybody can help? Ankit?

What pressure? Well, if the ECU had ears, they might bleed...

As long as you use a relay and give the horn it's own circuit from the battery, you'll be fine.
