The speakers seem fairly decent and I'd like to be able to keep all of them for the new Pioneer HU.

Has anyone had any success or pointers in how to hook up the SubWoofer to the Pioneer? It seems to be a non-amped woofer. The Pioneer instructions say that if you use a 2 Ohm (70W) sub, that you should not hook up the rear speakers and instead use only two wires from those to hook up the Sub. But this doesn't seem right because the factory Head Unit drives both the rear speakers and the Sub.

Is there a way to hook up the Sub from my Pioneer so that I can keep all four door speakers and the sub? I would like to do this without installing an Amp.

Any suggestions or advice are much appreciated!
There are sub rca's on the back of the hu. They have a SW etched next to it. There are three sets of rca outputs on the left hand side and the sub outputs are the bottom set.
