    Question Aftermarket Speakers with Stock Nav Unit?

    So I've got a 2014 Mirage with stock speakers and the navigation unit. I'd like to install aftermarket speakers with an amp and subwoofer in the trunk. My question - is it possible to do this without replacing the navigation unit with an aftermarket head unit? I'd like to keep the navigation unit installed if possible. Sorry if this is a super naive question, I I appreciate any help!

    Yes it is possible just make sure amp has speaker inputs. Most OEM units don't have coax RCA outputs.

    Thanks so much! I'll be sure to find a compatible amp.

    EDIT: After browsing the web, I found several potential amps that might work; Would you recommend any of these? Or do you have any other recommendations within the range of $100 to $150?

    Would be interesting to price the Rockford Fosgate equipent, especially since it's only speakers and an amp.
