Unless I could use a spdif out for subwoofer.
Lets do a bit of math

Lets say your PSU is 30 amps on the 12 volt rail (and if u cut the connector off, i doubt you'd do that to a great PSU.

Thats 360watts of power on that rail. Lets assume the amp is 70% efficent (which would be fairly good for a car amp). Thats only 252 watts of power, maximum.

Lol, and I doubt his PSU has 30 amps on the 12 volt rail. Especially one he's willing to butcher.

Nope, I found an extra 250W Computer PowerSupply laying around. So we rigged that up to it for power. Then to my home theater on the sub out. The sub out went to the amp vis RCA cables and the subwoofer hooked up to the amp.

It sounded really good.
