Can I add a amp / sub to factory Bose?

I have a 06 with factory Bose. How hard would it be to add a amp / sub to it? Do I need some kind of signal converter box?

No interest in an aftermarket stereo. If you actually read the post I made, you'll see I want to add a sub/amp to the factory stereo.

You either need a High low converter or just buy an amp with the high level inputs. I have a amp and 2-10s hooked up to the factory Am/Fm radio in my Lmm. It sounds good. I also had to add a couple tweeters to calm the bass down. You having a bose system you should still be able to hear it clear and add some extra kick.

Yup I did it to my truck!

You need a RCA converter where you attatch it to your speakers to grab signal. I spliced into my rear speakers then ran wire to the rear were I had my amp so I only need 1ft long RCA's. Then run the amp and wires like normal. I got 2 box's with 4 10's total. It slams :rockin

This is like the converter you need. I think best buy sells them

Do you splice this converter in before or after the factory amp?

Not ment to de-rail here, but it was said to take out the factory sub?How do you go abouts doing this and what are the actual benefits?
