Default Subwoofer Replacement Question

I might get flogged for double posting but no one moved this from the 04-08 section so I apologize in advance.

I have the audiophile subwoofer and it's developed a rattle sort of sound at certain hits of the bass. I pulled the 8 inch sub and held it and it still rattled when I played bass through it so I determined it's the sub itself. There's no tears in the cone or the spider and I removed the grill that covered it (thinking it was bumping/vibrating against it) but it'll still rattle. I may replace it, but the connectors on my sub are spade terminals. I'm seeing after market subs have a totally different cylinder or square type terminals. How would I go about connecting the factory amp wires? Or would I need an adapter? I do have an after market head unit. I do plan on keeping the stock amp as it was good enough for me. I just hope it can drive a $60 sub without it sounding less good than the factory one.

The the spade terminals off and use bare wire to your new sub

Would this be adequate enough if I kept the stock amp? So long as it is as good or better than the factory sub I'd be fine with that.
