    Most just use a LOC off the largest factory woofers in the vehicle. Then deal with any factory bass filters.

    No factory deck in the world can power subs and speakers at the same time

    He means adding an amp to power subs but feeding the amp a signal from the factory deck.

    Technically, every deck in the world is capable of delivering power to speakers and subs simultaneously. Just not a high volumes or low impedances.

    LOC = Line Out Converter. It's an electronic gizzmo that lets you tap into the speaker wires of an existing system and feed an amplifier's inputs. Many amps have one built in, they call it High Level Inputs.

    You tap into the biggest speakers in the car, because those will have the most bass signal. Unfortunately many factory systems filter the deep bass out so you don't blow the stock speakers. That's why someone suggested tapping into the wires between the factory HU and amp - those will be "unfiltered".. but it's more complicated.
