I purchased a surround sound system, but I wasn't thoroughly impressed with the strength of the bass. It actually has a very clean and powerful sound, but I want something with a little bit more oomph. All of the speakers are passive, including the sub woofer. They receive signal from a speaker wire. My father is a musician, and he happened to upgrade his bass amp. He offered to give me his amp. The issue is that the amp uses 6.35mm plugs (I'm not entirely sure if that is the technical term for them). He has a 3.5mm adapter that works nicely. I was wondering if there was a way to wire the speaker wire into a 3.5mm plug so that I could run the bass channel to the bass amp. I don't want to go mucking around on my own for fear of ruining my receiver or the amp itself. I was wondering if this was feasible, and if so, how it would be approached.

Not a good idea. Best bet is buy a powered sub and run that. Bass guitar amps are not the same.
