Yes you can. your factory sub may or maynot work. It will not look as good in there as the factory and it may sound a little better too but It will not be much better.

stereo info-New

I'm looking into this as well; here's what i know as of 11/06; you can have a component added to factory head unit that will allow you to add amp and betr speakers to factory system. There are others but but JL Audio makes one called the "clean sweep" adds preouts for amp. I'm going to replace speakers with Infinity kappa's and retain factory sub (I'm old school, hip hoppy is not my thang') also new this fall is a XM controller that will adapt to factory head unit and allow it to receive and display XM features; channels and all other info on factory display without using a pda or other non factory display pieces...hmm not cheap mind you around $350 installed for XM unit and controller...but?

Thanks for the info, i'll have to look into that. I only going to replace speakers aswell so a need for a new bigger amp without a bigget sub dont seem worth it.

EDIT: any idea what clean sweep fits the GTO's?

Good point.

You will lose these controls but if you got to crutchfield and order an interface kit as per your after market Head unit you can keep the steering wheel controls but be ready they are not cheep. unfortunatly you do lose the heads up display in your instrument cluster it will not longer tell you what is going on.
