TIC GS50 Omni-Directional Outdoor Subwoofer
Is this a subwoofer or full range speaker?
It appears to be a subwoofer but details say it has a 2" tweeter with frequency response to 110,000 Hz.
I apologize for the mistake(s) in our description, it has been addressed. This is a subwoofer, and only a subwoofer. There is no tweeter present in the enclosure, and the frequency response is up to about 110Hz, not 110kHz. Thank you for pointing out our oversight.

How would this be hooked up in a typical system?
Right now, I have two speakers hooked up outside. Would this need a special "sub-woofer out" line, or would I have to piggy back off one of my current pair?
This product does not feature a pass-thru low pass circuit or amplifier, so it would require an amplifier and low frequency pre-amplified output signal. I'd suggest using the LFE or sub-out on your receiver, and one of the amplifiers linked below. If you don't have a pre-out on your receiver, the plate amps referenced below will accommodate using a speaker-level source, with the pass-thru arrangement as you described. The APA150 will accept a line-level (pre-out, sub or LFE) input signal only.
