Yes and yes.

To add a subwoofer to the factory radio, you'll either need a line output converter or buy an amplifier that accepts high-level (speaker wire) inputs (very common). If you buy a current model Kicker amp, they even have a feature called DC offset. It's very similar to signal sensing, meaning it will turn the amp on/off when it detects an input on those speaker level inputs. Meaning no hunting for an ignition power source to use as a remote turn on!
