Default additional Amp?

I have had a cheap Pioneer amp (20Watts i think) just laying around and i was contemplating putting it in my bonne to boost bass or full range output to the rear speakers. I have a completly stock setup (am/fm/cassette no EQ save treb and bass levers). Is this doable? and if so where would i slap this sucka? and would i need any extra parts?

Yeah you will need an Item that will switch the output of the stereo to RCA'* so you can hook it up to your amp ask at Best Buy or someplace they will know what you mean. Then I would mount the amp in the trunk like right under the 3rd brake light upsidedown.

Thats for a 94sse and i assume it should be the same on mine? so i find the correct sub/full range and cut and splice?

-and my amp (20watt 2 channel) just has wires coming out (its an Optimus, not Pioneer sry) no RCA inputs or outputs just wires hangin out of it..., do i still need converter or what? It cost me all of like $20 is it really worth the work for 20watts? should i get another one to put one on each speaker?

Be careful, those aren't the wires coming out of the radio. Those are the wires coming out of the subwoofer amp.
