This looks like a worthwhile modification. Thanks Turbo for the info and pictures. One question, how did you mount the horn in the recess?
Drilled a 6mm hole as can be seen in the picture, 6mm x 20mm s/steel bolt and nut, 2 x s/steel tank washers, earthed the neg terminal of the compressor to this bolt, liberal coat of ACF-50 anti-rust fluid all around the washers and drilled hole. The Stebler has a slotted mounting point, I used that.
Didn't use a relay, never have done and not had a problem of the fuse blowing.

PS, thinking back, I think I spaced down the mounting of the compressor to stop it fouling the body.

On my MX5 I used the original horn along with the Stebel, but the Stebel totally drowned out the original so I disconnected it in fear of overloading the fuse with both being powered. The way around it obviously a relay but that extra wiring and finding a suitable position for the relay. I didn't see the point in utilising the original rubbish Toot Toot horn I wanted it gone, I have used Stebel for years and IMO can't be beaten on performance, size, quality and price, over the years its save my MX5 from being hit.

Great Derbro, I would have been amazed if you weren't happy with it

Where did you purchase horn from? Amazon £11 for shipping seems excessive and purchasing from sites like eBay there appears to be a risk of buying a fake.
Is Ring (from Halfords) or Fiamm a good alternative?

I have a pair of Fiamm in the garage, bought them for my bike, in comparison to the Stebler they are rubbish
