Default Need help with antique Bazooka RS

Its been years since i've tried to Pump that BASS... I searched this forum for the answers without success, seems nobody has one as old a Bazooka as me. The Bazooka I have dusted off is my old RS 10, purchased back around 98' funny it looks like these new Bazooka's but only has two tighten down posts for the speaker wires, no place for power or ground.

It is a RS10a - I'm trying to use the existing harness from my Subaru WRX passenger Sub under seat - the existing harness from my Subaru
has 6 wires pwr,grd left +,- and right +,-

Here is my question i need some help with.
With the RS10a only having the two posts to tighten over the speaker wire. To get the best "Boom" do i twist the two +'s left and right together for + terminal, and the same for the -'s left and right on the - terminal.

Or am i supposed to only use one pair left +,- or right only +,-
I'm trying to avoid a blown fuse as the RS10a has no fuse hole that I can see. I'm not sure if right + and left + for the positive post would be ok, then same for the - post.

Looking for confirmation before i splice into my WRX harness.
Thanks for the help in advance.

ah yes, i know the power and grd will not be necessary to use from the Subaru harness. In my Jeep i rigged it from only one speaker wire pair of neg/pos. In this Subaru would like to do it right. thanks

Feed both inputs of the Bazooka... Tie the inputs together.

Thanks D-rock!! now would you even attempt to salvage the under seat sub, keep it connected and splice off the lt +/- and rt +/- to the Bazooka leads also? So i can have both subs going or is that too much for the wiring? I ask cuz i'm about to cut into the harness.

Just tap into it, it won't be a problem.

D-Rock you rock ok thats stale I'm sure ~ ok you know how to thump it!
Tapped into the original harness and left the other sub connected.
There is a loud thumping which was not there before. I love it!!!
Thumps like I once remember BUT seems to clip the other speakers not like its using too much power - almost sounds like its a treble clip. Kinda like a mp3 that tweaks on Media player.
Can't quite place it yet. Still investigating if it is the xm connection or the xm antenna. Could very well be the bass shaking the whole car.
Just tested the new thumper on the way to work, finished to late to really test last night. hehe keeping the neigbors up at 1am hehe i should have - they would be envious ~ oh its nice and the wrx is very happy.
Will try an unplug the Subie sub and let the Bazooka do it all and see if there is a difference. Again wanted to say thanks for your help Derek.

NP, man...

Check that your antenna wire doesn't route near the Bazooka.... Some of those antenna signals can be comprimised by the magnetic fields woofers produce.
