I used a similar horn, mounting location and system, and relay on my '12 XCT for about two years before Paul made his excellent video (see link in VJ's post above). I used Paul's video for the instructions on adding the diode, though, which I did shortly after he put that up. I have nine (still) pics and captions that describe the process in my gallery, starting at this pic:

In my case, I used a Stebel Nautilus air horn, which is the same model I had on my Burgman 650 for five years. You can get this at Twisted Throttle, among other places: Stebel Nautilus Compact Dual-Tone Motorcycle Air Horn, 12-Volt, Black or Chrome | TwistedThrottle.com

All of these dual air horns are plenty loud, and the fairing has enough openings that the sound is not noticeably diminished. As long as you use a relay, keep the horn protected from the weather (which inside-the-fairing mounting takes care of) or at least have the trumpets facing down (to drain any moisture), and use beefy wire (16- or 14-gauge), you'll be fine with any of them.

I believe this Wolo is a direct replacement for the stock horn

This is the horn I have and I LOVE it!
Screaming Banshee - Loud Motorcycle Horns and Safety Systems
The fact that I can still tap the horn button and get a polite beep (when the light changes and someone is busy texting), or hold it for a LOUD blast. The headlight flasher is just a bonus.
Highly recommend!

It's important. The factory horn is weak.
