I would say that this is a recipe for trouble.

The amp is already driving a pair of speakers,and if you were to connect a single passive sub to it,the result could be an expensive failure.

The sub is a single channel device,and would require either a single dedicated amplifier to run it,or in some cases,both channels of a stereo amp bridged(assuming the amp is suitable).

Simply connecting your passive sub in parallel with the speakers will result in firstly a much lower impedance load,and also if connected across both channels...failure.
