Question type: Car Customization

amp wiring...., for all of my car knowledge this is one thing im not sure about, im wiring my amp into my factory head unit, this is easy usually i know because i could just run a line output converter off the back speakers right? but my grand prix just happens to have that crazily wired bose sound system and  want to keep my rear 6 by 9's. what i need to know is would it be smarter for me to 1. run a high level speaker input direct from my stock amps output? 2. run the highlevel input from the pre amp stereo output or 3. run a line output converter from the pre amp outputs into the new amp, before anyone asks why im adding a second amp its because the bose doesnt have crap for base so im puting in a 10 inch RE audio sub between the seats and i need this amp to power it
