It depends...are you trying to annoy everyone in your neighborhood, or just have an unusual sound system? Check the impedance rating of your big speakers. They're probably either 4Ω or 8Ω, and should be marked near the connections. Find out what impedance your Subaru system is designed for. The loudspeakers you connect should be equal impedance to the Subaru system output, or higher (not lower). Try connecting them with some temporary wiring and see if they're loud enough. If not, then you'll need an additinal amplifier.
