Reset code 08 is usually relates to data connection between head unit and the tuner. If there is any other peripheral units between the main unit and the Satellite tuner, check those also. Remove, clean with contact cleaner and reinstall should take care of majority of issues.
That subwoofer is included in the MHC-GX450 system. I have the amp/CD/radio unit. but not the subwoofer. The control cable connects the LED on the Sub to the main unit. When the main unit detects this connection to the LED it switches on its internal subwoofer amp to drive the subwoofer.
Does the JVC receiver use a "control" circuit through its external subwoofer unit to signal that it is connected to the subwoofer? If not, you do not need to use the control jack on the SS-WG450 to connect to the JVC receiver. Connecting the Sony subwoofer to a subwoofer output on the JVC unit may be enough. Do check the impedance required by your JVC receiver. Sony lists the SS-WG450 as having a Nominal impedance of 6 Ohms. Is this high enough for the JVC unit?
That would require you to disassemble the subwoofer cabinet and disconnect the the supplied amplifier. Connecting this unit to a different amplifier would provide no benefit to you unless the on-board amplifier became damaged.
Use only 1 RCA - as each time you split your signal - so too does the voltage. If your head unit gives a 2V audio signal - and you split it, you are only amplifying a 1 volt signal now.
Its a little dirtier, and makes your amplifier work less efficiently when you divide it.

To activate your bluetooth phone you'll need to connect the KS-BTA200 adapter I have the same radio with the adapter and love it. You pair the phone with the radio so when you get a call it mutes the unit the phone number shows on the video screen you tap the number on the screen to accept the call, you mount the mic on the visor and talk .
you need to find out what size speakers you have now and upgrade them with that size the amp you get will be based on the rms rating of the speaker. Example if the speakers rms rating is 100 watts the get a amp that puts out between 100 and 120 watts rms also to add bass you could go with a subwoofer that will add all your low freq. If you want something that doesn't take up alot of room try a bass tube you can get one amplifed or not.
