What do you mean by "interfering" with the stock speakers?
Your stock radio has a low level sub out in the yellow connector in back.(check http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...&threadid=3037 for the wiring diagram) With a little work you can use that to feed your sub amp. Even if you use the speaker signals to the high level inputs on the amp, it won't interfere with the stock speakers. The amp you use will have instructions on how to wire it properly also.

you can do any of those or you can run a LOC (line out converter / line level converter), either one of those 3 ways should work ok.
