The speakers may help, but my suspicion is that you won't be all that happy as long as you are still using that factory amp. You could either wire the speakers directly from the head unit or get a dedicated amplifier to power them. Either should fix your problem, but the replacement external amp would really make a dramatic difference.
OK so even though the unit is bypassing the amp, the stock Amp is driving the speakers? Did I get that correct?

I thought the amp in the unit would be driving the speakers? Sorry for the noobness....I DK much about this stuff.
