Last I knew under DOT regs, the horn should be 110db. How ever that is not very loud when you add in traffic noise. When they test the horn it is in a quite sound proof room.

see i wanna buy a horn and they all say theyre like 135db and then 110 at 10 feet or something and every review says how loud they are, and they all say double as loud as a stock horn, but how can 135db up close be that much louder than a stock horn at a car length away and a deisel engine....

im not looking at a train horn, just some of the mini compressor, long hornsss

such as this one... http://www.amazon.com/Chrome-Trumpet-135db-Compressor-Plug-n-Blow/dp/B001L51IVS/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
