Of course it's possible as long as the amplifier has enough power to run the sub.

How long is a piece of string?

Have a search online or browse at the shops of what model sub/amp you want in your price range (regardless of branding combination). When you look at the amp, ensure you look at RMS value, not MAX output. You'd want an RMS value higher than that of the subwoofer RMS value. For example, a 250W RMS subwoofer powered by a 300W RMS amplifier.

I'm not sure about all B-series models, but I believe you need a RCA converter. Stock head units may not have RCA output.

Your going to need line level converters, if you tap into the rear channel you can fade the sub out using the head unit or buy a aeropro 4ch line level converter as it comes with a gain controller.

Iv had in the past 2 fusion power plant 12s running at 425wrms @ 2 ohms with a power plant mono block sounded awesome really clean bass. My mate has 2 kicker 12s from Jb hifi diffrent style of bass. His you can hear a lot more but mine would shake your face off!
