I have bought Hella Twin Tone Horn Set TE16 for my Ecosport. The Stock Horns are not loud enough. So i want to replace them with this one. Now the question is Does this one require relay? Shall i install them over the stock ones(i.e keep both) or go for direct swap?

Not all places cops ignore such non-OE horns. Hence I would recommend retain the original horn and install this with a change over switch. So that you can switch back to the factory fitted horn if need arises. A horn relay is a must.
If you are a DIY guy confirm if the horn switch is giving you ground or +12V before starting with the wiring. Saying this because when I installed a Roots Vibrosonic in our Ikon, after everything was set the first test failed. Investigating with a multimeter I discovered that the horn switch was giving +12V instead of ground which is the convention in most cars and 2 wheelers.
All the best.
