Active subwoofer wiring help please!

I wan't to hook up this piece of shit subwoofer in the trunk of my car. Only problem is that I don't understand how to wire it up.

My car is with base stereo. 4 midrange and 2base under the seats.

I don't think I have any low input. Which leads me to the question.

Which speaker cable goes where on the 6 terminals?
I tried to hook it up with gnd and + from the battery and then Left - and + and right - and + in parallel with the speakers.

But no sound a all.. only when I crank the volume up real high the pw light will start flashing with the sound signal.

Now that I'm reading my own post... it sounds like I've hooked up the power completely wrong??? if the PW light flashes when I crank up the volume? that means that it is trying to take power from the speaker line??? WTF?

Could it be that the markings on the sub is wrong?

So I found that the ACC is the remote signal.. dooh.

Then I only have + and - to connect the speaker line.

Should I connect left or right? or both?
