You can buy an adapter that you can splice into the rear speakers and output as the RCA out. Wire up the amp like you would with an aftermarket but connect the RCAs to the adapter instead of the back of the deck. The next issue you will run into is how to turn off the amp when the radio is off so you don't drain the battery. We found a wire under the passenger door that will do the trick. You will need to test the wires to make sure it is actually off when the car is off and then connect to one that does. The other option is setting it up as a toggle switch. But that isn't as nice looking. There are probably other ways people have done it but that is what we did before I put in an aftermarket radio.
