am trying to double up on my Amplified subwoofer power skills, so is there a way to somehow split the the connection line to go into two different powered subwoofers
 
Connecting them as Kenton82 suggests is easy. Getting them to sound good together is much more complex. You will get more max volume but it the woofers are not placed correctly you might get sound suck outs (less bass at some frequencies) or peaks (more bass at some frequencies). Positioning them is crucial. Usually they are not different subs.

Kenton82

Estimable
Yeah, you can, but you MAY end up with a weak line level signal from the amp if you split it two ways!
If you want to try, a cheap way of doing this is to get one of these, and plug it into the first sub, then run an RCA cable from that one, to the second (i presume your subwoofer has a single RCA cable input?)

Good luck!
