We only recommend direct fit parts. This could damage the OEM stereo.

I'm sorry in my original question I put "hook ten up to the stock radio" I meant to type "hook them up to the stock radio" does that help anything?

No, because the factor stereo is designed to work to a max Ohms. Adding these speakers may damage it. You should have that determined by a stereo shop.

I'm sure there is, but I'm sorry, I would need the directions that would come with a new amp to do it.
