My parents have an extra 14inch Harman Kardon Subwoofer meant for a home theater.

Would it be possible to mount in my s40?

Yes! It is absolutley possible, works and did it for a buddy of mine in his little getto ride here in Turkey... You will a power inverter with enough wattage to be able to power the Sub Woofer get twice what the sub requires. You can get one that wires directly to the battery or one that utilizes the cig lighter... Then you will need to run a set of pre amp outs to the sub if the sub uses a single input just get a reverse splitter... http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Very possible.
You just need to know that home theater stuff is at 8 ohms. While car stuff is at 4 ohms impedance. So you'll need an amp that puts out double the power. (when rated at 4 ohms most are)
