Has anybody upgraded to Hella Superhorns?

I'm hoping to upgrade the stock horn with Hella Superhorns.

Can anybody suggest where to put them? Anybody have photos?

I regret it every time I hit the horn. The other guy always ends up looking around trying to figure out where the pissed off Prius driver is.

The factory horn sucks.

Sorry for the hijack!

the tank is a little pancake job I mounted using a 2trackminds compressor mount, the compressor used to be mounted to the side of my airaid CAI shield, but since I got rid of that and went back to the stock air box with an AEV snorkel, I had to make a new mount for the compressor so it hangs between the rad and engine pulleys
