Question Stock Headunit + New speakers = ?

I currently have an Alpine CDA-9885 in my accord and stock speakers.I want to put back my original head unit and get new speakers and a sub.

My question is, how would you hook up the new speakers and sub to the original headunit (while everything is powered by an external amp)?

The OEM radio will work fine with the new speakers but you will step backwards when it comes to hooking up the amp. The Alpine has RCA outputs that send signal to the amp where the OEM radio doesn't have them. Companies make a hi level adapter that you wire into the speaker outputs of the radio that converts the signal to RCA to send to the amp but the qualtiy varies greatly. I would keep the Alpine (unless the radio is defective) and just add the new speakers and amps.
