    just don't hook your stock speakers up to the amp and let it run from the headunit, easy.

    Bass drive-by's are uncool.

    Over time even an upgraded head unit can blow stock speakers. Be careful.

    You have subs?

    Then yes, running speakers off your head unit generally isn't a good idea unless all you want to hear is your subs. Your stock speakers won't be able to keep up. You'd have to turn down your subs to work with your stock speakers. If I were in your situation I would have done it the other way, gotten an amp for my speakers and bought some speakers with some bass Audiobahn ACX's or something. This would have given you some lows and still have better sound quality than a stock speaker/sub combo.
