There are so many factors that affect how loud a mouthpiece plays. Tip opening is only one factor and many fixate on that one number. Baffle, chamber, facing length, etc, etc, all play a part. I have heard players who use a fairly close tip play with great projecting sounds. Sometimes a closer tip will have a more focussed tone, giving the projection one needs. Get comfortable playing with a decent basic mouthpiece (there are some inexpensive decent ones like the Fobes Debut, Hite Premiere that work well) and once you get your act together you can play around with different set ups and see what works for you.
