Default Additional horns in swift

1. Does the swift come with a single or double horn?
2. Does one have to take off the bumpers to fit additional horns in the swift?

1. The new swifts do come with dual horn, appropriate spacing inside and slits in the front fog light.
2. It depends where You would want to place the horn. In older swifts (mine for eg - 2007 model), doesnt even have enough space behind the fog lamp to put one.

You have to remove the bumper if you need a proper wiring. This is a picture of my install of my Stebel power horn.Sorry about image quality as it was taken on my cell phone.

I would prefer this location as have heard elsewhere in this forum that removal of swift bumper is not easy.

Be careful of water as monsoon has set in.Water from spinning tyres might render your Stebel useless in no time dude.

If my memory is correct, I don't think that the melody maker for cars are not available for Rs.150.
I dont think so there is separate melody maker for bike. I bought along with Roots Vibrosonic, Roots melody maker 7 in 1. Its rated 8 amp. Roots megasonic is rated 8A and vibrosonic rated 7A for pair. Its cost around Rs 175 and i managed to get for Rs150. Also i got PMP relay for high tone with a switch to activate. This is to reduce sound inside the city limit. The reason why i opted is for melody maker is because of the electronic relay used. Its a man effort to place the horns for pulsar bike. Compared with stock minda 2A of the pulsars this is twice huge and thrice the thickness. Both have 90mm metal disc

How Megasonic fares against Stebel Nautilus, Hella clear tone a.k.a Red grill in terms of loudness. IMO it may be louder but can not reach long distances. 325 Hz low tone and 395 Hz high tone compared to 425Hz and 505 Hz for Hella German version.

Thanks for the warning on this. I did one round of heavy rain drive last weekend. The fellow still is loud and clear.

For Pulsar, you should've also opted for Spider so that the fitting would've been easy.

edit : The specs you posted look similar to the Vibromax listed on the roots website. How is the melody maker ?

I came to know that megasonic are the loudest followed by supersonic and then vibrasonic,not sure though.
I will prefer the loudest horn for daily use
@ goandude- the swift type 1 came with one horn (that girly kind of noise) and was fitted behind the left fog lamp,while the type 2 has two horns and are near the two fog lamps.To remove the bumper or not depends upon installer,but doing the work without taking off the bumper is very difficult.I tried so many installers and they sacer away from installing a horn in swift coz the whole bumper has to be removed and it is a really time taking and tiring job.
and guys I really recommend everybody to please get the relay changed appropriately,i had a very bad experience which made the cost of my horn almost double!!

I have got a Hella Red Grill dual horn fitted in my Swift. They did not remove the bumper. They fitted it close to the original horns (which are still there) and turned the wheels completely to one side to access the space. They had to remove the black cover in the wheel well to fit it though.
