When you press the horn button on the steering wheel or other locations, the current from the battery flows through the loop on the horn relay solenoid, solenoid relay attract dynamic contact switch is closed, current will flow to the speaker place. Electromagnet current work inside the horn, so that the diaphragm vibration sound.
