For those who want to upgrade their car’s weak horn and be heard. I got myself a set of HELLA Trumpet Horns ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk )! I will unbox and install these Hella horns on my car. If you don’t want to deal with splicing wires or buying relays this is the diy video for you.

I went with a Hella universal kit ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ) and added a Honda Horn audio adaptor ( https://amzn.to/3bPK5Rl ) . Some horn kits have Honda specific connectors for fast plug and play easy connecting without splicing wires Hella has some many of the car manufacture plugs ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ).
The issue with kits with specific car manufacture specific plugs is the possibility of being positioned in the wrong side of the horn. Your car may not have enough wiring harness to connect the plug. This happened with my Honda Clarity as the cable did not reach the horn plug. It needed another 3 inches of original harness length.
Universal horn kits are more flexible as you can buy an adaptor cable specific for your Honda or other car manufacture. Typical adapter cables are about 3-4 inches in length. The universal horn kit I choose was the Hella Trumpet Hi / Low Horn 113dB – Universal Kit. They had Honda specific connectors but I got the universal fit.
I also ordered a Honda Civic horn adaptor( https://amzn.to/3bPK5Rl )with 2 prongs to match my Honda Clarity. Some other model Honda have single prong as they ground from the mounting bolt to the metal of the car.
The only issue of my Hella Trumpet horns ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ) and 1/4 inch terminals were larger than my 3rd party adapter. I had to make a F2 to F1 adaptor ( https://amzn.to/35TqYSV ) , by using a 16 AWG 1/4″ Female connector terminal from my terminal assortment kit ( https://amzn.to/3sCCewq ) and some electrical tape. I typically use Plastidip in a can ( https://amzn.to/39ImUpu ) to insulate my electrical terminals but the can dried out.
You will need a a flat head screwdriver for the plastic clips that cover the paneling, 12 MM socket for the mounting bolt, and a 10 mm socket wrench for adjusting the angle of the horn mount. After connecting the horn test it out prior to finishing up the cable management.
Enjoy your new louder horns!
