    And make it kinda like a passive sub? Ive got a powered home sub (JBL 10" 100 watt) and the power supply or the amp or somthing took a crap on me so I was wondering if there was a way to maybe bypass the amp and let my reciever power the sub instead. I know it wouldnt be the same, but just as a quick fix until i can afford a new sub or somthing. Any easy way to do this?

    Its too much of a pain in the ass. First of all the subwoofer would have to have dual voice coils, and you would also need to get 2 inductors and 2 capactiors to use as a lowpass filter.
