    Wiring of Bad Boy Wolo horn

    I received the horn for Christmas, and I've previously installed a fuse box. I do not have any relay wired yet (One came with the horn). What is the best way to wire this up? Can i use the relay and put it in line before my fuse box? I assume 18 gauge wire is the best. Thanks for the help!

    A relay in line before the fuse box only activates the fuse box.... if that's what you want then go for it. If you like having the other items already on the fuse box hot all the time, then you need to add the relay between the fuse box and the horn... use the horn button wire as the activator to the relay and then you're good to go.

    PM me with your email address & I'll shoot you some pix on how I did mine. BTW, I'm no electric whiz. Simple + & - connections.

    Dude! When in doubt, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS! 16-gauge recommended! (what I used, too)

    I will read/follow instructions as a last resort... i.e. I've taken everything apart and tried several variations of what I think should be happening.... then if all else fails, read the instructions. What are you trying to say SilverF???

    Awwwe, Chuck... don't get western on h2omagnet... from my past experiences with him, he seems like a really good guy! Maybe he just never even opened the packaging, yet... he's only had it 1 day
