    This would basically be ideal, but it's discontinued.

    Infinity BassLink T Class D powered subwoofer at

    An integral class-D amplifier powered subwoofer would be ideal.

    Bass is non-directional, so only one speaker is needed.

    A crossover is generally required, but simple ones are in amplifiers designed for bass.

    Usually bass is in both channels, but to use a single sub, you use a dual-voice coil speaker and two amps.

    We can come back to this after you do a little research.

    They say home and car.

    In any event, go class D.

    You need:
    -power wire (to battery - with fuse)
    -remote wire(from amp to any 12v powersource that turns on with the keys in)
    -speaker wire
    -ground wire (amp - chasis)
    *if you are hooking the amp up to an aftermarket headunit you will need rca jacks, if you are wiring it into the stock system you will need a LOC (low end converter) stinger makes a decent one for about $20
