car subs on computer speakers

i was just given 2 12 inch subs from a friend's car. i don't have the money to get them put in my car and have the cd player fixed in my car so i want to hook them up to my computer. my sound card is a game theatre XP. currently the subs are running with a rockford fosgate 250.2 amp.

what would be the best way of setting it up? should i run the line from my soundcard to the amp? how should i power the amp?

if you want/need more info on my computer or the subs just ask.

thanks

As long as the amp supports standard line in (2v), rather than the higher level (4v), then there's no reason why you can't take the output from the sound card direct to the amp.

Powering the amp is a totally seperate problem. You'll need a fairly robust 12 to 14V power supply in order to do this. I'm not sure I can give much assistance here!
