The Read amplifier easily hooks-up to the subwoofer in your Saab and the whole process should take less than an hour to complete. Commonly used to power subwoofers that need external power sources when the existing stereo is not powerful enough, always match the power rating on the amplifier to that of the speakers. A mismatched rating will damage both units. Here's how you connect the two together safely.

Connect an RCA cable to the RCA "Pre-Amp" or "Subwoofer Output" ports on the Saab's head-unit. Run the RCA cable to the amplifier and plug it in to the "Audio In" RCA ports. Always match red with red and white with white.
Attach a speaker wire to the "Positive speaker out" terminal on the amplifier and connect the other end of that wire to the "Positive" power terminal on the speaker. Connect another speaker wire to the "Negative speaker out" terminal on the amplifier and hookup the other end of that wire to the "Negative" power terminal on the speaker. Do this for each additional speaker.
Hook-up a power wire to the amplifier's "+" 12-volt positive power terminal and connect another power wire to the amplifier's negative or ground terminal. Run these cables to the Saab's battery. Connect the "+" 12-volt wire to the battery's positive terminal. Connect the ground wire to the battery's negative "-" terminal.
Test the stereo.
