    Hi guys,

    So I got some old horns from a junkyard (I know they look crappy but they sound great!) and I'm going to solder them in soon, but I'm not very familiar with these things so I'm wondering if you can tell me which is likely the terminal I need to wire to. It looks like there is one on the outer edge of the horn and one near the middle of the horn- are these for a 2-wire type (power / gnd)?. This is a GM part. I've attached a pic below:

    Crimp on type female spade conectors would work well for that application.

    I believe it is just a female spade crimp on the inner slide on.
    Grd to screw to the outer rim loop.
    What is sound like?

    BIG ASSUMPTION - wiring those would be like wiring the FIAMMs I bought:

    Accepting the "big assumption" -- one spade would be ground and the other would connect to your horn wire.
