old subwoofer install 2008 wrangler unlimited

two days ago, i purchased my first Jeep! a 2008 wrangler unlimited sierra... blah blah blah..... you know.

anyway, I have some old Audio Unlimited subwoofers that i never took out of the box (so old that they have the classic neon rings around them).

Well I figured i would hook them up in my new baby, but the question is..... will it be worth my time?

The speakers only have normal wiring, no rca, or anything like that, just a wire that could be curled, and screwed under a screw.

where is the amp located (if there is one), and is there a way of connecting these wires to the stereo, or amp without splicing into the already existing wires?

thanks

hahahh thanks, although I think I just found an old post that states that there is an amp under the steering wheel somewhere. gonna have to check it out.... just hope that it allows for easy wiring, like i said I don't want to have to splice into existing wiring... which I am sure I will have to

The reason I said your gonna need an external one is that the factory doesn't have near enough balls to run those subs.
