    Why can't you just hook the speakers into the head unit normally? Is it because of the 1) speakers or 2) head unit? I don't know anything about either.

    what vehicle are you trying to put this in?

    Some vehicles you just need to run new speaker wire from the headunit straight to the speakers to bypass the factory bose amplifier, but in some cars the amplifiers are actually built into the stock speakers... in which case you'd need to buy all new speakers and rewire the car.
