Help Seeking advice on Sound wiring

Hello everyone, I'm a new Alfa owner and I'm trying to install a couple of 6" x 9" speakers in the back. I found a 'BOSE' Amp + a mini Sub back there and im not sure if i should hook up the 6x9s to the BOSE Amp or to my head unit.

If anyone has done this on a 156 plz give me some feedback/advice, much appreciated.

whats the peak power on the 6x9s? and the amps power output? i have 7x10 in my 155 on the shelf and sound flat off the head unit but really great off a amp sometimes the speakers need alot of power tobe driven which sometimes the head cannot provide!

Erm, I maybe wrong, but I believe convention is to either stick with the bose or ditch the entire setup.

Im drunk, and I;m sure there are a lot more reasons, but the only one I can think of is now that the bose system has a mic that monitors the output sound, and changes the signal put into the amp accordingly. Therefore, that will negate any change in sound from different speakers.

I maybe wrong, but thats roughly what ive figured out (as well as the fact its hard to tap into the bose system here and there like you feel like it).
