Subs on factory deck

Is it possible to run subs off the factory deck? I know in most cars factory head units don't have outputs but can you do something to get it to work? What do you all think about running all my door speakers off the HK amp and then running two 8 inch subs in stealth boxes off of an xtant amp. Whould that work better then all running off of one amp with the factory subs? Also I am sure someone has done this setup, what was your opinion?

I plan to do this setup by hooking up an external amp using speaker level inputs and powering two 10" subs. It should sound good enough.

Search for "ttenn" and "johnhab" in the old ICE posts and we have DIYs of how to add an amp and Stealthboxes to a factory system.
Better picture coming!
