JBL REAR SUBWOOFER 2008 Solara

The wimpy 8' sub has tanked.. It has two sets of speaker wires attached to the speaker. I am assuming it is a dual voice coil speaker. If I abandon the factory sub and install a new larger sub with an amp, do I connect the two to the right and left inputs on the amp? Only use one set? Use the high level input on the new sub amp? Using a single speaker Sub box and new sub only amp has right and left, high and low level inputs. Any help would be welcomed.

On our 08 Sienna, I had bought a
dual voice coil 10" sub dual voice coil 10" sub
and used an old box I had laying around. Significant gain of bass. If you go the amp route, your only option would be to use high level input and run power to it. Most amps can be bridged to supply all it's power to a single channel.

need just a little more light on the matter

I am going to be using one 12 inch enclosed sub with an amp. I know I need to run power, ground and a wire to fire it. I am going to be running a line out convertor on the original set of speaker wires that went to the original sub speaker. One less operation for the amp to handle. Do I treat the original pair of speaker wires as a right and a left? Or do I need to pull a signal off one set and tape the other?

Yes, treat them as right and left.
