I believe when he said it already has an amp he meant a stock amp, as in the power isn't wired like normal amps and the line in is different as well. He couldn't just run the signal to the new amp and then go out to the old, because chances are the signal going to the old isn't rca or high level, it's a special cable designed to only go from that headunit to that amp.

Unfortunately I don't know what you can do about this, apart from tapping into the rear speaker signals after the stock amp powers them and putting in a line output converter, then running the rcas to the new amp. I don't know how that would affect the signal that is going to the rear speakers though.
