Get an LOC (line output convertor). LOCs have speaker inputs, RCA outs. You hook your factory deck speaker outputs to the LOC, then the RCAs go to your amp. EZ

yeah, but unfortunately that sounds like poop.

I'd suggest if you've got the money, get yourself an aftermarket deck. It just sounds so much better than hooking up subs to the stock one. If you change out the deck, and bypass the factory amp (pos), the stock speakers will sound 10x better than they do. They're def. not components but they work well enough that replacing them isn't a top priority for me.

just my :2cents:

I'd never argue that a stock deck with LOCs will sound as good as a top line aftermarket HU, but as long as you use good LOCs (meaning: not from Wal-Mart) you can get pretty good sound.

Here is a good source of LOCs

I used a set of Navone LOCs on the stock HU for a while, then switched to an Alpine 9830. The Alpine was better for sure, but not nearly as much as I expected.
