most amps have a mono setup. just hook it up throught the mono side of the amp. you do have an amp, right? if not i wouldnt get a subwoofer for the back of your car. underpowering a speacker is just as bad as overpowering it.

Left, Right, and Center...

Doc here,

Check to see if your amp has "Left , Right, and Center" outputs.

If so, just use the Center output in the rear middle..

In theory you should be able to "FADE" the left and right into a "Center" sounding output...I can on the vettes..but not all separation rejection is this good...just depends on your system...

Doc

you can also bridge your amp... then put the gain down...alot... do this by taking the positive from channel 1 and the negative on channel 2. some amps dont like it that much. but should be okay if you keep the gain low. i have done this many times and havent had any problems yet.
