Garage stereo


Hellp all
My son bought me a subwoofer for my garagge. It looks to me to be a sub from a car stereo. It contains two 1000w twelve inch speakers (forgot ohms) no power amp or crossover. I puchased a torgue logic aw1 amp. This will be hooked up to my 110w stereo.
I do mot know much about stereos.
So my question is from what Ive read on the internet is that I need a crossover to cut the sound to below 50hz so all I get is bass out of the sub.
Im having a hard time finding one.
Also where is this hooked up between amp and sub or stereo and amp?
Spending budget is about $100.
Thanks

You can find tons of automotive xovers, but I haven't seen anything (cheap) for the home. Maybe pick up one for the car and a small power supply?
