I have an 02 quadcab I put a head unit and subs under rear seat when I bought it, And now I want to replace all 4 door speakers and add a 4 channel amp.
I have some little speakers in the dash also.
My question is, Can I only amplify the door speaker via going from stereo harness adaptor without interfering with those dash speakers?
I am going to run 50w RMS to each doors 5.25 (rear) and 6x9 (front)
So I want to run 4 sets of wires into the amp from the head unit and 4 sets out of the amp to the harness, can this be done easily without robbing my 6x9s of power by feeding and possibly blowing out the dash speakers??

I also wanted to amplify the stereo and after changing the dynamics I understood that the sound remains the same. I wasn't understanding what was the problem and soon one of my friends said that the problem can be because of the old din and he was right. I had to change it to the new double din. That was really a hard choice to find a good double din that would give the sound I want. I wanted to find the one that will cost not very much and be modern. I decided that I want the one with Bluetooth and CarPlay. Also, navigation and touchscreen were important to me. After reading this review doubledinguide.com I chose Boss Audio BV9364B. It gave me a really good sound.

If it's like the later trucks with 6 speakers, the doors and dash are wired in parallel. If that's the case, then teeing in right after the head unit won't do what you want. You'd have to run your own wires to the dash speakers or disconnect them.

Have you thought about getting an amp with DSP like the Kicker Key and bi-amping dash and doors? The DSP would help with balance and timing of doors vs dash to give a really good sound stage, and then after you have it programmed, you could re-connect the rears are just use them for fill. You'd leave them disconnected at first until you give the amp a chance to do its DSP thing.
