You need 2 line level converters. You grab the outputs at the harness on the back of the deck, convert them to RCA with the line level converters, then run the RCAs to the new amp, new amp goes to the components. They sell Line Level Converters at most auto parts stores now...

So we are clear, your stereo is ALL stock Bose right now...

You are looking to replace just the front speakers with components, and want to run an amp on just the front speakers, leaving everything else Bose in place?

Ah, ok then yes you need 2 line level converters. One is for the Front Speakers, 1 is for the rear speakers. You will be using the factory head unit to send a signal to your aftermarket amp, the aftermarket amp will take front and rear rca inputs since its a 4 channel. If your amp has whats called "High Level" inputs, you can run the speaker wires from the deck, directly to the amp, then to the speakers. Make sense?
