I was looking for the actual circuit board diagrams so I can wire in a resistor so my honda horn will work , seems like the power isnt enough

I am confused a bit. Why can't you do it externally? The SS2000 is not polarity sensitive with it's horn ring circuit, it will take either 12v or ground. It is a "simple" pass-through circuit. If there is some interfacing problem with your Honda, why would you want to fix it by tinkering with the SS2000? You should be able to work any solutions needed outside the unit.

Per Installation Manual:


Horn Ring.


In order to utilize the horn ring control


of siren tones (Tap II) and other features of the siren,


the following procedure must be performed.


a. Locate the wire that connects the


vehicle horn ring switch to the horn or horn relay.


Cut this wire.


b. See figure 3-5. Splice the white/


yellow power cable wire to the horn ring side of


the wire that was cut in step a. Insulate the splice


with the wire nuts (supplied).


*************************************


> The horn ring transfer circuit of the siren is


> capable of switching a maximum of 2-amperes.


> Some vehicles do not have a horn relay and,


> consequently, will draw more than 2-amperes


> when the vehicle horn is activated. Consult


> your vehicle service manual or a qualified


> mechanic to determine the current required


> to activate the horn. If it is less than


> 2-amperes, perform the procedure in step c.


> If it is greater than 2-amperes, perform


> steps d through j.


*************************************


c. Splice the white power cable wire


to the horn side of the cut wire. Insulate the splice


with a wire nut.


d. Obtain a SPST relay of sufficient


contact current capacity to activate the vehicle horn.


Refer to figure 3-5 while performing the following


steps.


e. Mount the relay in a suitable


location.


f. Connect the horn side of the wire


cut in step a to the relay contact terminal.


g. Determine the “sense” of the


vehicle’s horn ring activation circuit, i.e., does the


horn circuit require a switched positive voltage or


switched ground for activation.


h. Connect the switched relay


contact terminal to the positive or negative potential


determined in step g.


i. Connect the white power cable


wire to one end of the relay coil.


j. Connect the other end of the relay


coil to the opposite potential of that connected to the


switched relay contact terminal in step h.
