Better horn for the nomad?

I have my newly purchased 2005 Nomad that I have been riding almost every day that I rode it...Today I was heading home during rush hour and an F150 nearly cut me off- I laid on the horn and then I remembered how terrible the horn on this thing is...I could not even tell if it made a noise at highway speeds. I don't know if that is normal for the stock horn or if mine is on the way out but all i know is I want to put in the loudest thing i can fit easily (no remote compressors)! I want something that will mount up fairly easily. Are there any good suggestions?

Check these out... compressor and relay built right into it...

I have the Mini Beast 5. It has the smallest dimensions of the ones they make. Costs the least, too!!! 136 decibels...

A lot of people are using the Bad Boy Wolo horn. You will need to add a relay to protection your horn switch with it though. 123.5 decibels...

I've got a Stebel airhorn, pretty small, 2 tone, built I compressor and about 35.00.

It's got good tone and is about twice as loud as stock.

Garage
I put this on this year.
Ear Cannon Air Horn :: Aerostich Motorcycle Jackets, Suits, Clothing, & Gear

Used the relay kit as well. I can say I have woken up a few idiots with it. My kids (5 & 3) also run out of the house when I get home to hit the horn button. Just not in the garage.
