The horn should just pop off like the nozzles on paint cans. Then look how it connects to the can and come up with simular hook up for the new chamber.

In short, use your head.

Now days you can buy air horns with the air compressor built rite onto the horn. Most run off of 12v. They are on Ebay all the time for cheep compaired to retail auto parts stores.
