To bypass, or not to Bypass

Im doing a stereo install for a friend this weekend and doing my jeep in a couple weeks. Both cars have factory amp. Ive always put a new amp in to power the speakers but will not be for these installs, I am not afraid of running new wires from the Deck to the speakers to bypass the Amp, but what is everyone options. Do you get better sound with bypassing or using the stock amp in series with the new decks. The two cars are a 98 Avenger (after mart crap speakers), and my 06 Jeep SRT(Stock Bostons). I search on this forum and many others for an answer but didn't find much. Thanks in advance, and sorry if this was covered already.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

So you are replacing the head units? If so, then yes, bypass the factory amps.

As far as your Jeep goes, I would seriously consider a Kicker Upgrade. The "Quality" vs "Money Spent"
cant be matched, as they are OEM, and designed for our rigs. Plus you keep your factory head unit for
a nice clean install with all the steering wheel controls, etc.

I am installing a Double DIN in place of my crappy non NAV stock one. I also will be getting harnesses to keep wheel controls. And the other car will be getting an aftermarket deck too. I would do an amp to but money is tight and no really in the budget right now.
