    Tilt them down a little so water runs out and does not collect on the diaphragm.

    I might do that later when I space the brackets down in the front. Not quite the angle I was hoping for in the beginning. There tucked up behind the bumper so far it doesn't even get wet. Mainly moisture from compressor but I drain them a couple times a week. If I could flip them for seepage holes to work that would be nice.

    Thanks! I will get spacers for the front of brackets. Do you have a set?

    I usually use rubber as a spacer. The vibration from the horns likes to kill things like airbag sensors and lights so buffering the vibration to the chassis is a good thing. I install lots of these things for people.

    I got an 1/8" thick rubber between bracket and horns to dampen some vibrations. The mount has a rubber sheet between it too.

    Two coats of ceramic to help keep them polished. Going on soon...
