Stainless Steel Mini Horns from Schmitt & Ongaro Marine are the perfect solution for small boats where space is at a premium. Ideal for refit and OEM, six 12V models are available that top or flush mount, or install unobtrusively out of the way.

While the US Coast Guard doesn't have a minimum decibel rating for sound-producing devices on vessels under 12m, Schmitt & Ongaro's Mini Horns conform to ABYC A-23 standards. They offer sufficient volume for signaling over distance and have a clear, pleasing tone. Recordings of the single and twin Mini Horns are available here.

Mini Compact Single Horns are available in a weather-resistant Standard version or All Stainless Steel. They're ideal for installing above or below dashes, consoles and other exposed components. Measuring only 7.5cm L x 8cm W x 4.5cm H, they produce 105db at 1m FF 410Hz +/20 and draw only 3 amps.

The Standard and All Stainless Mini Hidden Compact Single Horns are designed to be unseen, but provide the same weather-resistance that Schmitt & Ongaro horns are known for. They measure 7.5cm L x 8cm W x 4.5cm H. They draw 3A and produce 105db at 1m FF 410 Hz +/20.

Flush-mount Stainless Steel Mini Drop-In Single Horns are available in high or low pitch, or paired together for a distinctive tone. Each measures 7.5cm L x 8cm W x 9.5cm H with a 12.3cm L x 7.6cm W grille, and require a 10.1cm hole. Producing 106db at 1m FF 410Hz +/20, they draw 3A.

Schmitt & Ongaro Mini Horns are pre-wired for fast and simple installation. They come with a five-year anti-rust and corrosion warranty and one-year on the internal electric contacts.
