A rule of thumb... If there is no tank, then it's no good.

Even if you add your own air tank?

I don't mean to burst your bubble, but you'll need to check if that compressor will even handle filling a tank. It may burn it up if it can't handle running for long periods of time to fill a tank or if it can't block any back pressure.

Also the horns probably won't handle a very high PSI, so be careful if you do add a tank that you also regulate the PSI down to whatever those horns will handle or it will blow them apart.

just to give you an idea, horns with tanks run at about 120psi and above.

horns with on-demand compressors like that run at 7psi.

I have tried similar horns like that and ran them on a 125psi tank. they do sound very loud. much louder than the stock compressor but the hose keeps popping out. didn't bother experimenting any further than that.
