JBL Head Unit, can I upgrade w/out replacing?

OK, so I have the JBL Headunit with 6 discs, bluetooth, xm, and rear camera. You have to turn this thing up quite a bit to get any decent sound, and it sounds like its straining to produce any quality sound. I'm thinking a more powerful amp would help this set up. I believe it has a built in amp already, is it possible to add another amp?

I've looked at replacing the head unit, but all of the harnesses, bluetooth, & camera would cost more than I want to pay. I'm fine with the stock bluetooth, and back up camera.

Any help is appreciated!

The camera is not part of the stereo. Most head units now have bluetooth built into them. Yes you can add aftermarket amps to the stock stereo but it will be somewhat difficult. The JBL system uses one amp to power all the speakers. You would have to get an amp for speakers and drop the sub or add an aftermarket amp with an aftermerket sub.

I added the camera because I would not be able to use the stock one with a new head unit, right? I have an Alpine amp sitting around so that shouldn't be a big deal. So how would I bypass the stock amp? Sorry I don't know much about car audio.
