    I have one 10in car subwoofer that i dont use, so i hooked it directly to my stereo..obviously the stereo doesnt power it all the way so i was wondering if theres a way to get the sub the power it needs. I've looked at other places and they all say u have to hook a car amplifier to it and get all these different and expencive gadgets to get it to work, and thats all nice but i want to know if theres a simple way to just hook up the sub to the stereo with enough power to get a back massage. Any ideas?

    Well, I would probably give the same advice as you got from the other sites. :)

    A car subwoofer is designed (electrically and acoustically) to work in a car. So you would need to get an amp, crossovers, and a box for your sub. Then you aren't guaranteed it will sound right. I think if you just tried a simple cheap method, it would not sound good at all.

    If I was in your shoes, I would sell the subwoofer and buy one designed for your system that would match your existing speakers.
