Stereo Installation

I have a 97 Boxster with Cassette player and CD Changer. I want to keep my OEM Factory stereo because it matches the interior and the radio shows what's playing on FM. The stereo sounds fine except that the BASS comes up short with the top down and even with the windows down.

I bought a Bazooka Bass Tube with a built-in amp to try to solve this problem. I had no problem pulling out the head unit. I bought a High/Low converter too... but now what? I'm not exactly sure how to do the wiring for the High/Low converter and hook up into the bazooka tube. There is a wiring harness on the bazooka tube, but I'm not exactly sure what is what. I know there is a power and ground. There are a pair of RCAs and some other misc wires. I've hooked up normal amp and sub set ups, but never a bass tube. I would think this would be easy, so can someone help?

In addition, when I turn up the volume with the stereo in completely stock form, the bass starts to distort. Is there a way to block out the lower frequencies that go into the front speakers and just play it through the sub? Let me know. Thanks!!!
