Louder horns for Thor Ace 29.2

I've purchased a set of PIAA for our 2014 ACE 29.2 thinking that the existing wiring would connect to the PIAAs. I was wrong. So, my question; where do I source power for the new horns and a relay; from the fuse panel under the dash or the battery control box in the engine bay?

If they are drawing that much current, I would run the power directly to the battery via a fuse (very very close to the battery) and then you can put the relay anywhere that fits.

Didn't think of that, too obvious and simple. Thank you.

Power direct from battery to a relay that is activated by the stock horn wiring.
