Ive never played with a factory amp wiring, but what you could do is buy a line out converter and tag into your right and left rear speakers. What it does is makes you have pre outs for your application. Its not the best sounding, but it does work. I tried to do this with my factory radio in mine, didnt like the sound, so I stuck an aftermarket deck in. Its just an Idea for you. Think it was a pac-audio box. Now if your serious and want to bump it up a notch, JL Audio makes a good one, along with Rockford Fosgate. These units are made to hook up more then just one amp and you can adjust all the frequencys to your liking. Just my 02 cents If you want more info, you can pm me

I'm not sure if you figured this out or not, but with my 2010 factory nav/dvd head unit, the outputs are all pre-amp level. The subwoofer color code is + purple/green, - light green/white. I'd expect those wires would be at the plug into the factory subwoofer amp that is attached to the sub enclosure on the back side. Solder on an RCA connector and plug it into your new sub amp. That should work.
