bucks an buitl it myself, you can get the tanks an pressure switch anywhere on line i bought a 200 psi tank, i think 5 gal plus the switch for 35 dollers online, the name of the site escapes me now, the hose i bought from fasten all, which ran me 20 bucks , i also bought the quick connect fittings there, those were more expensive i spent like 45 dollars for more then what i needed, i got the compressor off of a Lincoln ls(air bags) at a junk yard i spent 5 bucks on that, then the horn well i work with a lot of heavy equip so lets say that was a freebie, an so was the lanyard valve, so i got round 100 bucks into it, but with the hose an fitings i bought more then i needed so i coulda saved money there, an the whole system worked great nice an loud granted it aint all that chrome crap they sell but who's gonna see it

i kinda pieced mine together.
I got some grand general horns, they are loud- $160
I called horn blasters and got a 100% duty cycle compressor and i 5 gal tank with everything need to hook it all up for some where around $300 or $400, i dont remember.

If i had to do it over. i would get a larger tank, and run 1/2" line to the horns.

Best thing i ever had. Go thru Manhattan, New York City and blast the horn between the buildings and the windows on the bars/restaurants are fully opened in summer, we literally see people jumping off the chair and screaming. :)
