Maybe a compressor just for horns is a bit crazy? Dukes of hazard?
You can use a tank of compressed air. My Uncle used to have a Land Rover and he had a pair of very loud truck horns on the roof fed off a compressed air tank.

Exactly the kind of upgrade I've been wanting for years!

how do you go about wiring up the compressed tank to regenerate ?
My Uncle was a mechanic in a fizzy drinks compamy so he just used to fill the air bottle when it ran out. I think it was actually Carbon Dioxide but it was a long time ago.

He mounted the horns on the roof of the cab on the driver's side and the air valve was part of the horn that protruded inside the cabin. It was just a case of the tank being located behind the seat and an air pipe ran up to the horn.

He tried electric horns but they were no where near as loud as these.

get a CO2 cylinder, the type they use for pumping beer and strap it into the boot. then get a length of compressor pipe run from the bottle through into the cab. you can get a simple push valve, its T shaped with a button that opens the valve. CO2 in one side and out the other. the hard part would be finding some where to fit the horns.

easy place to fit them mate, could put them in the front bumper behind a vent or under the rear around the exhaust somewhere,
