    You mean you need a physically smaller loudspeaker that gives you the same sound pressure?

    Look at this from Wikipedia:
    "Sensitivity – The sound pressure level produced by a loudspeaker in a non-reverberant environment, often specified in dB and measured at 1 meter with an input of 1 watt (2.83 rms volts into 8 Ω), typically at one or more specified frequencies. "

    So you'd have to look for sound pressure specs at the frequency of your sirene.
