I will go with lesser water boatman(Micronecta scholtzi).
The loudest of everything as well as small.
Size: 0.07-inch (2-millimeter)

If we consider voice, I will go with Paedophryne amauensis
I'm putting my bets on the Pistol Shrimp (Alpheus heterochaelis) They can be grow 3cm to 5cm Long which is incredibly small for the amount of db it can create.
Their sound is a by-product of their large claw snapping shut and creating a cavitation bubble that creates a lot of pressure and then produces up to a recorded 218 Decibels. This "click" or "pop" of the bubble only lasts less than 1 millisecond. It also produces around 5000k in heat from the popping of the bubble.
