    Novice subwoofer question...

    Hi, I have a sound system in my car running off an older Nakamichi amp. Everything works great but I want to add a subwoofer. The amp has outputs for the four speakers but not a subwoofer. The newer Kenwood tuner has RCA subwoofer outputs. How can I get a subwoofer to work with this system? Is there any way I can draw off the existing amp to get the sub working?

    Thanks, Dave

    if the amp has a l/p switch then yes . rca's from the sub outputs on the deck to the amp,put the switch in l/p and bridge a 4 ohm sub , how you do that is the + of 1 channel to the sub and the - of the other channel to the sub
