Can you easily an aftermarket sub to the RHB 430N setup?

I have the 430N and am not impressed with the bass.... Is there an easy way to add a sub to the system? Kinda would like a sub like I had in my 09 SRT8 with RER (think it was a powered Kicker sub).

I replaced the 8in Infinity stock sub with the dual 10in Infinity Basslink to my 730RER in my 07 JK Wrangler. The trade off is that a powered sub will take up more trunk space. Kicker made 7 channel plug and play amps for MOPAR but I have not seen one for the WK2 yet.

I am pretty sure all you need is a high low converter. Go to any stereo shop and they will tell you exactly what is needed.

Most of the powered speakers have both speaker level and line level inputs. As for adding none powered speakers, obviously you want to make sure that the sub is a match for the amp in both power and impedance and space. A kicking sub is not going to sound as good in a small space.
