I'm not sure if this is what you mean but the single wire on each harness is a positive daisy chain and the negative comes from the bolt securing it to the chassis making an earth ground.

Reading it again your positive is the harness if you need a ground on the horn run a jumper wire from the chassis bolt to your horn neg terminal use one of the circle crimp heads (can't remember name)

@El Loco - so are you saying that the two gray wires hooked up to a single male connector into female connection at the horn, are positive?

N.p. I will soon be swapping mine out as well. I had a rav4 that sounded even Girlier than this but my Camry had the nice deep sounding horn go figure.

FWIW Lexus IS300 horns bolt in with no modification and are a huge improvement in sound. Should be cheap used.

I bought Camry horns for my HL
Easy swap they use the same horn relay amperage so you don't need to do major mods

Installed 2009 High and Low Camry Horns after purchase of my new 2012 HL. Love them and they are very loud. Think I paid $35 for the plug and play used horns.

The first time I hit the horn on our '13 HL, I nearly croaked from embarrassment. Sounds like a clown car. Cannot blame you at all for swapping it out.

Part numbers for the 2011 Camry horns that I used are: HORN ASSY, LOW PITCH #86520-AA010 and HORN ASSY, HIGH PITCH #86510-AA010.

Put these in my '12 SE a few months after getting her. Toyota of Dallas is where I ordered them from.
