    I bought 2 10" subs for my car. I tapped into one of my subwoofer (sailpanel) speakers with a line out convertor. It has an adjuster on it for output to the (new) amp. My amp has an input adjuster also, probably like yours does. From there I ran that signal into my amps imput. Then I connected the positive and negative power wires to the amp, and ran my sub speaker wires. Made a huge difference for me, all I really wanted was a lot more bass. The stock Monsoon is loud and clear enough for me. I also love my steering wheel controls (with my 12 disc trunk changer), easy access to volume, balance, fader and especially the 7 band EQ. No searching thru menus with tiny buttons!
