Stebel Nautilus 139db horn - installation review

Hello everyone,

I made a short video reviewing the installation of the Nautilus that I've done recently.
Mad horn...finally something that gets the attention when needed.

Just don't get that puppy wet! Shorted mine out on a rainy ride with DC. Rehooked the pathetic stock horn until I get the two new FIAMM Freeway Blasters installed over the winter.

So far so good Scott.
I rode the "Ride to the Wall" last week (fallen soldiers remembrance run to National Memorial Arboretum) and it was pouring it down like crazy.

Fingers crossed it won't happen.

have read issues like yours Scott where horn shorted out in rain...wonder what the cause is and what one can do in installing to help reduce the possibilty of it happening again?

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!

Dennis, perhaps if it was installed out of the spray from the front wheel? I don't know, I aint that smart when it comes to electrics.

I must say that having the exposed connectors from the bottom was probably not the best design idea.
I've heatshrinked all cables, etc.. what else could you do...hmm possible a coat of vaseline around any exposed parts of spade connectors...
Still...it the horn decides to short out internally...there's nothing one can do I think :/

I just joined the ranks of Wolo Bad Boys today. Thanks for your video. The installation is easy, but it is great to see how someone approached it. I pretty much copied everything you did, except that I used the Wolo Bad Boy instead of the Stebel, which appear to be the exact same product. Mine came with a relay, and I added my own wiring and fuse block and connectors. Took about an easy hour and one Dr Pepper (soft drink) to do the job.

That bad boy is LLOOUUDD!! I am tired of being cut off by careless drivers, and they can't even hear that little beep beep horn that comes on the C50, worst horn ever. This should get their attention. Loud horns save lives?
