I currently have my subs running with the stock radio but it took alot of cussing and rigging to get them going. I had to splice the rear speaker wires and hook an adapter to them to get the RCAs hooked up. I then had to take apart the driver side kickplate, find a green wire, in the mess of wires located there, expose it, and connect my remote wire to it. The rest is fairly simple. Run your power wire up through the driver firewall and connect it to the battery. As long as everything is hooked up on your amp, you should have bass. There is a post somewhere on here that gives you pictures and better instructions. I'll try to find it for you.

whitelightning05 has the right idea. But that way though easier to understand and hook up(i used to install system's for a living), is the old school way of doing thing's. These car manufacture's have improved factory sound but is still limited. And it all start's at the head unit. It made to protect your factory speaker's. So when you hook up an amp to the rear speaker's it's controlled through ur head unit and is highly influenced by the bass and treble controls. Your best bet is to purchase a sound processor. I bought the MTX re-Q and it's a miracle worker. Right now Crutchfield.com has it cheaper than when I bought it from there but it's the same one. Even though it's inexpensive it's really good. I'm used to have the big 12's and 15's but since I bought my 07 g6 I didn't want a huge box limiting my trunk space. So I bought the powered Visonic 12" sub that already come's in a box with an amp from walmart(yes walmart). It's only rated at 250 watts, but that's RMS power which is true power. I only have one cause my wife dosen't like the big bang but it's still a good choice especially hooked up to that sound processor and the woofer is only 50 buck's already installed in a nice box and the amp built into the box as well. You can very easily install two. You still need the wire coming from the batt. for each one but it's a good inexpensive to go.
