1st you need 2 ysplitters,connect them 2 the back of your head unit in the sub out or rear outs,you should have 2pair of rca jacks running to your trunk,plug 1 pair each to an amp,then connect 1 set of speaker wire from sub1 to 1amp and the other wire to the other amp.good luck

the only way to connect two amplifiers to one sub, is to have a dual voice coil subwoofer. if you dont have a dual voice coil sub, it cannot be done.

if you have a dual voice coil sub, you need to run one set of speaker wires to one coil, and another set to the other coil. both of your amps should be the same brand and model number. also you need to make sure that the subwoofer that you are using has the proper impedance for the amps you are using. if you give us model numbers of both amps and subwoofer, we can better assist you.
