Default Alpine Sub Replacement/Audio Upgrade

I have the Alpine system and right now looking to upgrade with a little more bass. I have a 10" Kicker comp VR from my previous car that I will be re-using for the time being (until I can upgrade) and plan on powering it with a JVC-Arsenal-KS-AR7501D. My question; will I able to use this setup in addition to the stock 8" Alpine sub or will the stock sub have to be removed? Also, will this setup work with the stock HU or should I begin the search for an aftermarket unit prior to installing? Any help appreciated as I'm not too audio savvy.

It will work with the stock head unit but you may not have any bass gain at all unless you get a remote gain knob if your current sub amp has a plug in for it.

Thats a good question, I'm not too sure, I do know that kicker makes a complete upgrade package for the ram....( been thinking of buying). Some how your going to have get a high level input into the amp....may sound like crap ?, never gone down this route, I have always just replaced everything if I was upgrading... see what others say.
