Air Horn?

i have a 2014 P85D with air suspension and i was wondering if there was a way to tap into that system to install an air horn? Like the wiring is easy its just a 12v line/switch and adding an air solenoid but i wanna know how to tap into the air tank or if that is even a possible idea.

To keep it stock'ish i was thinking i could just pull the valve stem out of the Schrader valve the air tank has on the top and use that as my main line and run that to an air solenoid/relay assembly to the horn.
Would that work or be possible? or am i going to cause more problems than its worth and just buy an air horn kit that comes with its own compressor and crap? i figure since i already have an air tank it would save money by only buying the horn and not the compressor too.

more problems than it's worth. I'm told the 2015 F250 has a nice 12v horn. buy one of those? I had a car, I don't even remember what one it was at this point, and that's what someone told me to use, since the OEM one was like meep meep please move? vs. HOOONNNNHHHHKKKKK lol

I installed a dixie horn in my truck while i lived in Alaska and that thing was awesome. i dont wanna play any tunes anymore just wanna get those people that stay at the red forever to freaking move :) and what is more jarring than a loud ass air horn to get people to freaking move.
people ignore normal car horns these days and it drives me nuts, i need a different sound. like on the Harley i just snap the throttle and that works rather well.
