E36 Amp Bypass/delete

So I've been doing some searching, and all the answers I found were pretty convoluted. I have an aftermarket JVC deck in my E36, with stock amp (in the rear fender) and speakers.

My understanding is that the wiring is as per below:
JVC Deck -- (High level output) --> stock amp --> speakers

I would like to bypass and remove the stock amp, and connect the speakers directly to the deck using the existing stock wiring.

If I were to just splice the high level output from the deck, using the exisiting stock wiring, to the wires that come out of the amp to the speakers, I should be able to completely bypass the amp right? Is this possible or am I missing something?
