Installing OOgah horn

I want to install one in my 2015 Santa Fe -- and even though I am experienced in working on PRE 1980 cars, I have no experience mucking around in an engine bay of a 2015 car -- my concern is that I may install the horn and end up blowing up a couple of computers. My dealer-supplied manual does not have any schematics that I can find -- I looked for Chilton Manuals for 2015 SF's and there can't find any.

I know that installing stuff on the old cars is easy - but the new cars present their own unique problems. Has anyone had experience installing an auxiliary horn?

    The question begs...WHY?

    Those horns are big and your biggest problem may be in finding a place to install it!

    For new cars, I'm leery of "splicing" anything into the wiring. Aftermarket alarms, remote starts and other accessories seem to give people fits a few years down the road.

    Of course people who don't have issues, don't post, but I had a Subaru with a dealer installed OEM alarm that flaked out on me in year seven, so I'm not excited about hooking stuff up to the factory wiring (and by extension, the various computers).

    I think the first thing I might look for if I was to try this is an empty (unused) spare fuse connection either underhood or in cabin and wire from there. I would never splice info anything, just asking for trouble.
