How involved was the installation? Would you have the part # for the horn?APOGEE said:Ok, I hate to do this lurking thing on topic that could save your butt
if a big ass Suv can't see you. I have installed a Stobel Nautilus
horn on a Saffron Yellow Elise, In the NewPort Beach Ca area,
Ivor, the owner may want to comment on how it sounds.
It needs a 10 amp fuse (stock= 7.5) I like loud horns on small
cars. Sorry I cannot post any pictures.
Back under the rock............
Maybe they got the horn from GM to make the vauxhall.ekological said:The Elise horn definitely does not match the car. It sounds as if it belongs to an old fart's car...like an old GM car... Ugh. I would be tempted to mount two Hellas or two Fiams similar to BMW's setup. A nice bright, alert beep.
As long as its louder than stock I'll be happy. It could have saved me 6 weeks of down time on the Elise!Stan said:>>>Its supposed to be good for 139db.<<<
I'm sure it's loud but that measurement was taken at 4 inches. At 2 meters it puts out about 115 dB, they say...
This weekend we were able to do a side by side comparison of the Stebel Nautilus and the stock Elise horn. The Nautilus was clearly louder, but not obnoxiously so. While the stock horn had a "soft" character, the Nautilus was more shrill. A little more attention getting. People will not mistake it for an 18-wheeler, though. The Nautilus could have been installed at the factory as the stock horn and no one would have thought it unusual or out of place.NtflBlueLiz said:As long as its louder than stock I'll be happy.

I wonder if the stock mounting location is somewhat at fault for muffling the sound of the horn...
Fred did you get the air-horn and did you install it?NtflBlueLiz said:I bought a Stebel Nautilus on ebay and hope it'll come in tomorrow so I can install it on Saturday or maybe early next week. Its supposed to be good for 139db.
