So now to edit any original sound file I have to convert it from ogg to wav, that's kind of silly. Thanks for letting me know this though.

---QUOTATION---
I've tried using the level editor but can't get the sounds to show up in the sound editor. I do refresh environment library like the tutorial says but still nothing. The only sound that shows up is the mosquito_bald one...

You have to have the sound as a mono wav file, and place it in the "rawdata" folder. When you have fixed it and converted to ogg it will be in the "gamedata" folder within the SDK.

Trust me once you get it working it is the easiest way to ceate in game sounds. When you do get it working try these settings for megaphone sounds (they seem pretty good in game).

Quality 1
Base volume 2
Min distance 15
Maximum distance 150
AI distance 150
type - ambient.

View the tutorial on the Wiki for sound editing....

You can define the base volume of the sound, its maximum distance and minimum distance if you use the SDk to ogg comment your music. It is far more effective than trying to raise the actual volume.

Are your custom sound (.ogg) files properly commented?

I've been trying to get songs to play loud enough on the megafone so that I can further. In the game, the propaganda voice clips play across the map over the megafone, but I can't get a song to play further than 80 feet while still being kind of quiet compared to the voice clips. I've compared the volume of the songs to the voice clips and they're about the same. I've tried raising the dB on the song files as well as increasing the base. Is there something I am missing?
