Factory CD player with aftermarket amp and speakers????

i have a 2002 Wrangler TJ with all stock audio and I want to upgrade the sound quality but leave the factory cd player in the dash so as not to make it more attractive to thieves.

SO, i know that upgrading the speakers alone will not get me very far with the low power head unit.

My question is= Can I install an amplifier along with new speakers and drive it all with the factory head unit?

you will need a line output converter, it taps into the factory wire harness and converts the speaker wire into rca cables for 4 channels. these also have a remote turn on lead for the amp so that you don't have to find your own power source that is only hot when the radio is on.
