Default re: Power Horns!

i personally think nobody should use too loud horns , its too irritating and could damage your ears,you will know what i mean if you are on a bike and get stuck in front of a truck or a bus with air horn.you can really say good bye to your ears.

What do the Stebel horns sound like?
I have Stebel Nautilus installed in my i20. I have had it placed inside the bonnet so it does not deafen up people ahead and at the same time provides the necessary effect. I am not a compulsive honker anyways.

STEBEL S.p.A. - horns

Check the site, you can actually test each horn as to what it sounds like.

Cool re: Power Horns!

Upgrading my horn from the Stebel Nauitilus horns which has run for a good two years to PIAA- Slender HO 12 dual tone (400+500Hz). Claimed to be worlds thinnest power sports horns.

I had purchased from ebay.Just look for it on ebay motors.
You can listen to the tone on the japanese site of PIAA. Just click on the horn ikon next to each of the model to listen to the tones.

Do you have any contacts/friends in Bangalore? They could pick it up for you from any auto accessory store in Bangalore. I bought mine at Auto Shop Koramangala.

sorry for the late reply..
Stebel produces the typical merc/skoda sound.
The Red grills produce a rather unique tone which is tough to describe(But Pretty loud IMO).


They do consume a lot of power hence a relay is advised.
The other day I noticed my High beam fade a bit when i Tried Honking.

Default Good horn for a K10

I'm looking for a good horn for my Alto K10. The OE horn is too feeble. Any suggestions?

The MASS folks were suggesting a Bosch one that costs ~Rs 1500/-. Aren't there cheaper ones from Bosch?

I got Minda power horns (likes of roots windtone) for my i10 sportz at Rs. 600/ from my regular accessory guy in Pune. Working well since 7-8 months now. No problem at all.

CBlazer, why don't you try the Hella Compact horns? I recently bought them for my M800. Cost me only 400 bucks. These are the OEM horns for AHNC. Sounds good, bit of a devilish sound .

For pictures, check this link:

Thanks,

Default re: Power Horns!

Guys - I fit hella redgrill supertones over the weekend on my swift at Reliance autozone. The guys over there insisted that I do not need a relay since swift comes with 2 horns. While the horn seems to work fine, is this ok or will there be any problem?

Thanks.
