You want to run them right off the speaker ouput from your cd player? That won't work. Main reason being that your deck maybe does 15watts per channel at best. Average subs require 200watts or more to function properly. If you want to get an amp as well then yes your stock system would be able to handle some subs. but as it is right now, no way.

You could also try a powered sub...basically an amp and sub built into one unit...

Just tap off of the rear speakers. To make your life easier you can buy a sub amp with speaker level inputs and auto on, so that will make your install a lot easier.
