"Could something have been done different with the innards to make it so loud?"

I don't understand why you think that it would be any louder today than in yesteryear? Think about it. They had to be loud to be picked up so many miles away with Link's recordind equipment. And on at least one recording on Link's LP's, an unexpected "toot toot" distorted the sound quite noticably.
