A: Larger train horns tend to be louder and sound deeper than smaller air horns. Our compact horns produce decibel levels that range from 146 to 153 db, while the larger horns produce sound levels of 150 to 158 db. The horn tone produced will be close to the sound that a train horn makes but smaller horns will not have the impact that larger horns have. Because of the smaller, narrower trumpets – the sound of the smaller air horns (99, 102, 102-1, 130, 130-1,141-1, 141) will produce a higher pitch than our larger train horns (220, 230, 500, 501, 630, 730).
