It's possible to add an amp to your car's factory audio system without having to buy an expensive new head unit CD player. Adding an amp will make your audio system sound louder and clearer by allowing you to send more power to your factory speakers or sub-woofers. This tutorial will focus on how to add an amp by using speaker-level inputs to tap into your car's existing wiring.
Wiring in one amplifier can be complicated enough, especially when you're dealing with a factory car stereo, and the situation just gets more complex when you add multiple amplifiers to the equation. You can wire two amplifiers, or even multiple amps, in one car audio system, but it takes some extra planning. The main factors that you need to consider when you wire in two or more amps are how you will deal with the power cable, grounding each amp, and whether or not the remote turn-on signal from your head unit is strong enough to split between multiple amps.

If you want to upgrade your sound system in your car by adding a sub woofer or speakers powered by an auxiliary amplifier without having to get a new head unit then hopefully this should help you : I decided to keep my standard head unit because it looks well in the car, is less likely to attract thieves than a shiny after-market unit and it is a factory upgraded unit anyway and i find it gives pretty good audio quality, it works with the steering wheel controls and has bluetooth and aux-in, so an after-market unit wouldn't offer a substantial upgrade. Factory head units rarely have RCA or "Low line" outputs which your amplifier will need for it's input signal. If you dont have it then you should acquire it from your car manufacturers customer service phone number, your local dealer or the internet.
To create a truly powerful car audio system you need to have a wide ranging speaker set-up and the proper power to drive those speakers. Most vehicles are equipped with a series of door panel and rear deck speakers. Optional stereo systems often come with subwoofers and amplifiers.
