If you have an external amp, it MIGHT be possible. There are a couple of
companies that make external processors that allow you to hook a sub to a
2 channel amp already driving 2 speakers. BUT, its a cheep fix with some
serious compromises, and those compromises are sound quality. If you're
using a stock amp, its impossible. You might get sound, but it'll be bad,
much worse than it is now. Either way, you'll need a crossover to filter
the highs from the sub and the lows fromt he satelites. Your best bet is
to get an external amp with an onboard crossover. Alpine and a/d/s make some
excellent types for around $250-350. Also, is the sub in an enclosure?
I know that's a stupid question but its also very important. If it isn't
there's no point.
