Check out Wolo, possibly wolo.com. Look at the decible measurements for each, the higher the decibles the louder the horn. I think decibles go something like for every 3 decibles the volume doubles.

Thier big kits require the compressor/tank aswell as the trumpits.

Here's a real compact Wolo air horn:

and it's $10 cheaper than the Wolo site.

I almost always see some NOS or used Grover horns at swap meets, and they generally sell for a fraction of the retail prices. I've got one now mounted under the hood (on the inner fender) behind the stock horn location, but don't actually have a proper air supply yet.

I just picked up an airhorn/compressor combo kit at Harbor Freight this week for $14! 135 decibels, too. Sure, it's not a train horn, but it's better than the stock horn.

Hella makes a nice twin trumpet air horn kit with pretty good blast. I think it's 135 dbs.
