WOLO Horn Mod - Beware, Loud and CHEEEEP

Wed Jun 24, 2015 3:08 pm

So I did some research and saw many peeps have done the Fiamm El Grande horns and been happy with them. I found some WoLo horns that claim 114db and were less than half the price. They didn't come with a mounting bracket but made my own and am very pleased with them

Nice job. The brackets between your bracket and the horns is what they all come with, and most of us have been able to just use those. I myself stacked the horns one above the other - one on the captured nut that was for the original horn and the other on a second captured nut that wasn't being use for anything from the factory (almost like they expected to have dual horns from the factory but then didn't).

Interesting....that sounds like it would have been easier and prob I would have done that instead.... Some benefits of how mine turned out are they slightly visible, stealthy (which I like)and pointing right out the lower grille, funny because you can hear the sound "bounce" off whatever is in front of the vehicle with a slight delay depending how far away it is lol

Which model Wolo is that?
I see a bunch of them on Amazon, but not one that looks like yours.

Also, any chance you can make a short video demonstrating what they sound like?

Wolo horns are good inexpensive horns that are available at most auto parts stores. These horns are essentially a knock-off of the Hella Super-tone horns which generally go for about $65.

In my current 2014 LEAF, I installed the Hella super-tone horns. They fit without a bracket (the fit is tight, but doable), but this bracket that the OP made is very nice.

Both the Hella and the Wolo knockoff have a typical european sound, and are very loud.

And of course if you have a newer LEAF, the access to the horn mounting point is done from under the car.

Doesn't sound like these were much more expensive, and if you're happy with them, that's what's important. Personally, I think yours look nicer, anyway. I'm currently trying to decide if it's worth swapping the horns on mine, so added choices are a good thing.

I picked up a set of these after reading some recommendations:

I had those WOLO horns on my Mazda 3 and they're great, but the Harbor Freight horns are as loud and sound like a 70's land yacht!
