Default Two horns on one wire?

I replaced the horn on my 2003 PT with high note NAPA horn. I would like to add a low note horn too. Is it ok to split off the wire attached to the high note horn to power the low note horn? If not how would I go about getting power to the 2nd horn?

Also, the original electrical horn wiring looks to by like 18 gauge but I used 14 gauge wire while the instructions I was going by from another PT forum said to use 10-12 gauge wire. Can anyone clarify what gauge wire I should be using?

Unless you're a cab driver, your horn shouldn't get extended use so the one wire should be okay.
To add a second, what I did for my Aoogah horn is get an inline fuse and a relay. From + of battery, put in inline fuse and go to contacts of relay to horn. Use the horn switch to go to the coil of the relay.

I did it on soonercruiser, and I am having no problem!
Mine came with the low tone; and I added a high tone highway blaster from Autozone.
Now, I have a real horn.....and I do use mine like cab driver!
