The only thing turning the subs around will do is provide a bit more internal box volume.(unless you count being able to see the magnet which some people really enjoy)

On a seperate but related note, do you really WANT tweeter for rear fill? I really like some nice mid/midbass fro rear fill, but find tweets bring much of the sound stage too far back.

Beat me to it!
Use some 12V switched power from the car to power a relay for turn-on purposes. Even with a single amp, this is the best solution.

Amps require a constant +12V, a ground and a switched +12V lead for turn-on; if you know the ground you just have to figure out which is which for the 2 power pins.
