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?

Depends if the deck has its own integrated amp. Otherwise you'll get almost no sound...

yes, you can remove your stock amp and bypass it. this will sound like shit if you have a standard amp that delivers ~50wrms per channel
