Horn wiring question

So I picked up a new horn finally. It is the Wolo Bad Boy horn. I have two pairs of wires from the factory horn (hi and low), I just stripped one pair to wire straight to the horn, and as soon as I connected the ground end to the horn it was going off. I yanked it right back off as it scared the living **** out of me haha. I tried the other pair of wires and when I connected the ground this time, I was a little more aware but it didn't go off this time. So I got behind the wheel to try the horn and nothing happened. I'm wondering if my horn is stuck on? I had boughten my ZJ without the horn even working, and I found the problem, it was the connectors to the old horns were all corroded. I was just about to say hell with it and just wire it to a push button but I would like to have a normal operating horn haha. Just came here to ask your guys opinions. Should I try wiring both + and - wires together from both pairs of wires? I just don't understand why one pair would constantly go off and the other pair just didn't do a thing

It came with a relay so I'm wondering if I'm supposed to use it in the wiring? Not too familiar with relays. I know how they work I just don't fully understand how I should use it unless I'm just going to wire it to a push button
