    So if I replace the head unit, with the included harnesses and all with the maestro, what exactly will be powering the stock speakers? The head unit or the the stock amp?

    JBL or Non-JBL?

    If it were me, i would bypass the factory amp and have everything powered off the head unit.

    non jbl the HU powers the dash speakers and the "amp" (using the term loosely) under the passenger seat powers the rest of the speakers in the system.

    related question:
    if you swap out the HU with an aftermarket one (something like a kenwood DDX9940), what happens to your Entune maintenance reminders / alerts? will those go away? if they re-appear then you have no way to reset them or make them go away... there are also some settings inside the HU like lighting delay, do you lose all that stuff too?

    Do the head unit first and then replace the factory amp, then you'll want to replace the speakers.
    Save yourself some money and do it yourself. Its not a difficult job.

    Crutchfield also has a good write up on it. You can actually get more info on certain head units like the kenwood plus the settings that are on the OEM head into.
