I'm pretty sure there's a reason they come with a relay. I've put two on and always used heavy gauge wire and replaced the cheap relay with what I feel is a more substantial one from the auto parts store, soldered & shrink wrapped everything and never had an issue. You want to blow the horn not your fuse panel.

use a relay to get a good solid 12v to the horn
