If its the Bose amp it behind a panel that is directly in front of your jack and CD changer on the left hand side of your trunk.

which speakers are you trying to replace? you could just run direct leads from the h/u to the speakers in door. correct me if i'm wrong but, aren't non-bose systems only rear-amplified or did they come amplified all the way around? the fronts should be direct leads

the factory amp for the symphony radio should be a small square piece of metal under the drivers side rear speaker it only powers the two rear speakers and if you want to bypass it all you have to do is run speaker wire from the h/u to each of the speakers like said before
