Horns-Which side is which

Looking to replace the horn on the drivers side, I don't know if its the low or the high. Does anyone know which one it is?

From what I can find, the low pitch horn (420hz) is on the passenger side, and the high pitch horn (520hz) is on the driver side.

From RealOEM:
Low pitch part number is: 61338379711
High pitch part number is: 61338379712

Photos from ECS Tuning:
Low pitch horn (61338379711), bell opening is on the right when facing down.



High pitch horn (61338379712), bell opening is on the left when facing down.



Image from Silver325’s Horn Replacement DIY shows factory horn on passenger side facing down with bell opening on the right.

.

Driver side = high
Passenger side = low

Seems to match up with ECS Tuning’s photos and RealOEM’s part numbers.
