Unfortunatly that's always an issue with factory amps, they tend to be a pain to bypass, I thought i've seen somewhere a cable that went between the input and output cables going to the amp to bypass it, not positive though, the other options are to manualy connect the appropriate wires between the two connectors or just do what I did and run new speaker wire which is better in the long run anyways as factory speaker wire is junk.

I WAS FACED WITH THE SAME SITUATION, BUT I FOUND A SOLUTION!
CRUTCHFIELD.COM! FIRST, I HAD PREVIOUSLY UPGRADED ALL (6) OF MY SPEAKERS USING
SPEAKER HARNESSES FROM CRUTCHFIELD. THESE SIMPLY PLUG INTO THE EXISTING FACTORY PLUGS & ALLOW YOU TO INSTALL NEW SPEAKERS W/O CUTTING ANY WIRES.
I ALSO FOUND THE AMP-BYPASS WIRING HARNESS AT CRUTCHFIELD FOR $30 BUCKS!
YOU JUST WIRE THE HARNESS WIRES TO THE MATCHING WIRES FROM THE AFTERMARKET RADIO, ONE END PLUGS INTO THE RADIO & THE OTHER END PLUGS INTO THE STOCK AMP, THUS BYPASSING IT! THE HARNESS ALSO COMES WITH A POWER WIRE THAT NEEDS TO BE CONNECTED TO YOUR FRONT CIGARETTE LIGHTER (THAT TOO WAS EASY).
IT WAS A GREAT SOLUTION FOR ME & IT SOUNDS MUCH BETTER. I PERSONALLY NEEDED SOME BASS THOUGH, SO I ADDED AN AMP & A SUB IN THE REAR (ANOTHER EASY INSTALL & I CAN GIVE DETAILS IF YOU DECIDE TO GO THAT ROUTE).

CALHEMI5.7, No problem, I Love this car stuff!! Don't worry, all of the parts remove easily. One of the things I like so much about Crutchfield is that, when you order from them they include an instruction package with some photos & detailed instructions. They show you how to remove whatever is needed. Anyway, most of the panels are held in place by pushtabs so you just pull them off! Underneath are a couple of screws holding a plastic cover in place. You'll see the amp on the left next to the emergency brake.
You won't have any problems!! I'll try to send some photos anyway.

Let me know if you have anymore questions!

Default Installing a Stereo, USB Ports, and a Backup Camera in a 2005 Dodge Magnum

I used a bypass kit by Metra for mine.

I documented a video on how I installed my stereo from start to finish.

On Youtube it's called:
