    I have just bought the wolo model 308-2t sound blaster horn, and i already have the wolo model 200 and along with the original horns to my tundra im trying to hooked up at same time, its loud now but also i blow the 10amp fuse after 1 push of the button, so how could i have my new loud horn system work all the time without blowing out the fuse? Can any help out with a remedy for what I'm trying to accomplish?

    Im thinking i may need to install 2 10amp inline fuse holders to the other 2 horns, would that work?

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    Might want to do a relay and pull the power from the battery with a fuse rated for the wire size.

    When i did the wolo model 200 in my geo tracker with its original horn i never had the issue of blowing a fuse but i guess since im trying to do pretty much 6 horns all together ill get some relays and inline fuses thanks guys ill see if that does it, if not ill just try to just get and hook up 1 set of horns that would be the same loudness

    I would think that a relay coupled with the right sized wire and in-line fuse would fix you up. The trigger for the relay would be your exiting horn positive wire.

    What the hell do you need 6 horns for?

    But yes you are overloading the stock circuit of 10 amps. Which btw is alot.... your horns are pulling some serious current. Find out how much they draw and run a seperate circuit using a big fuse, bigger wire and a nice relay. Similar to an aftermarket offroad light circuit....
