How big is the fuse that supplies the power to them ?

That will give you an idea.

Just a wild guess, but I think you're only talking a few amps for either one. Were you going to put a Marquis horn on the Honda or vice versa?

Marquis horn in a Honda to replace the whimpy one that came on it.

Horn circuits are usually 15-20A circuits.

I would say the Marquis horn setup draws slightly more current.
You shouldn't hurt anything by trying it. Worst case..... a fuse blows.
