Default Stebel Nautilus Compact Series

Stebel has launched a Compact series of the Nautilus-supposedley 30% reduced in size. Anyone seen it at Accessory shops yet?

I use the Stebel Nautilus for everyday use-had issues with it once-but no problems after that.It's been 2 yrs now and sounds loud enough.

Update:
Got Redgrilles fitted with Roots melody maker.
I somehow feel that the Hellas are not loud enough and have a gut feel that the Melody Maker is kinda responsible for the low sound. It says 4 Amps capacity... I havent fit the relay yet.
Do you think fitting a relay down the circuit from the M M (near the horn) should help? How should the relay be connected? My mech said wire will be drawn from battery to horn through relay? I am confused.
Someone gave me the gyaan that the Roots MM itself acts as a relay! not sure though. Any thoughts?

Yes, the wire will be drawn from battery to horn through the relay!

Get the relay fitted and see. Else, remove the MM and then see again

Yessir. that's now on the agenda. I am to send you a sound recording too soon. Will try and get at least some background noise that you can relate with so that you have get a relative hang of the sound. else the more volume you give, the louder the horn will sound!
the MM is fun and has its effect of urgency - so if i can have the loudness and the melody, it would be too damn good! So relay will give current to the horns directly from the battery - so the horn and the MM will only act as a switch? What if the switch (read MM) does not permit flow of too much electricity - what will the relay do in that case?

The guy has fitted the horns just behind the grill - i know rain will be the first to reach it - you can see it through the grill. I hope the horns are not too sensitive! He said that placing it elsewhere will require removal of the bonnet! Is it ok?

Newbie question - I have a Manza and definately do not want to tamper electrical wiring which will void(I know it won't but service centre guy insisits) since Manza being new, already has its share of niggles. So can the gurus clarify if I can buy a horn powered by the 12V DC?

Vjoy,

Want the safest route out? Go back to the showroom that you bought your Manza from, check their accessory list for different horn options and have them install. You'll pay a higher price, but will get (hopefully) superior install quality + your warranty remains intact.

Hella red grills are very sensitive to water

I want to get my Roots Vibrasonic horn serviced.
Is there any Authorised/reliable service centre near Marathahalli / IndiraNagar /Whitefield in Bangalore?

If I have given choice , will go for Megasonic, its loud and has more bass

Megasonic is big in size and weight (by 0.5kg/pair) compared to Vibrasonic

It might be the wrong question to ask, but what will you do with this?

I doubt if anyone sells these in India, but since you're an LAX resident as well, you'll get them dime a dozen over there.

Check out Amazon.com as well

Does anyone here know if Roots make wiring harnesses to fit additional horns?
I know they make kits for headlight wiring (replacement). So do they make harnesses (including I/II/off switches) ?

No need for relay. I've been using Roots Windtone on my Swift for last 1.5yrs without any problem.

In my case fitter not recommended Stebel relay and used some other one.. don't remember the reason though.
