The "mini" listed by Twisted Throttle is not an air horn, it is electromagnetic like my Fiamm Freeway Blasters.
I swapped a Lo-tone Fiamm for the stock horn to get me through autumn until the snow started. It was marginally better and a 5 minute job.
For a real improvement you must have two (low and high tone), and they must be powered through a relay.
It took me days. The biggest job was figuring out where and how to install everything, then wires had to be made.
This is the fourth time I have used a pair of these horns. That, and a SS front brake line are the first things I do when I change bikes.
I am not a sound engineer so I can't explain it, but the way the two horns sound together is much more than twice as loud as one horn.

I've spent most of my money on women, motorcycles, and beer.
The rest of it I just wasted.

So I got the Mini after consulting TwistedThrottle. Installed it into where the OEM horn was, using the two arm brackets that were provided. it IS wider than the OEM horn, so I had to bend the brackets back a bit so the horn fit and doesn't scrape against the rear of the headlight housing.

I like the sound of the horn. Comes out sounding like a mid-size sedan and grabs attention well. I'm sure with a little fiddling, you could position the Compact somewhere but if you want just an easy plug and play, then the Mini is the way to go

I have the soundbomb compact on my R3. I mounted it where the stock horn was, had to do some fiddling with positioning but I got it on there. Sounds amazing.

Listen, I hate to break it to you but what you call "love" is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed. It hits hard, then it slowly fades, leaving you stranded in a failing marriage. I did it. Your parents are gonna do it. Break the cycle. Rise above. Focus on science.
