u may be able to custom fir the 6x9 into the rear of the vehicle, if you don't want to do that, you may be able to fit them into the spots in the doors, but that still may be a custom job. u could always go with boxes, individual boxes that you could put on the floor on maybe on the back deck where usually the 6x9s would be located. if you dont like that idea, you might try a body shop or electronics retailer because there is definitely a way to fit those speakers in the doors or on the rear deck, it just won't be an easy job for a beginner, you have to cut holes
You can make some plates from mdf or the like to "lift" the 6x9's up (can also be bought, but I can't remember were I bought mine from, was a while ago). just cut some mdf to take the speaker and cut about 1" around, paint or cover with material and screw through to the shelf.
If the existing stereo is a double din, there will likely be screws to remove to get it out on a bracket. Depending on the make and model of the vehicle, there will be more or less to take apart to get it out. There is usually a way to get at the stereo without taking the whole dash apart. Look for seams in the near vicinity of the stereo. There may be screws or pop-clamps/fasteners or both. Screws are usually shielded from view by being installed under a piece of the dash that is merely pinch clamped on (can be carefully pried off - best to use a screwdriver tip wrapped in several layers of paper folded over it or a towel, or your fingers) If screws were used to fasten on the first piece of facing they may be accessible under ash tray or compartment drawer covers, tilting portions of heater/ac registers (some Toyota Tundras, and Sequoias are like this), or just fastened in a slant down position that you cant see from normal sitting position (try looking at the surrounding dash from down close to the seats). There may be a couple of pieces of the dash to remove to get to it. Do some more close looking around and see if any of these tips help.

Typically the best way would be to remove the interior trim piece from the shelf. Then have a friend hold the MDF board up from inside the trunk. Then run either screws or bolts/nuts through from the interior all the way through the MDF. Replace interior trim piece and it should be held in tight.
Another less intrusive way would be to use a strong adhesive, such as "Liquid Nails" to secure the MDF to the bottom of the shelf. You'd need to figure a way to hold the MDF to the bottom of the shelf for quite awhile (8-24 hours) to make sure their is good adhesion.
I would run a 250-500 watt 2 channel high input capable amp. run the original wires to the orginal speakers and jump off the original wires to the amp to push the secondary 6X9's you have. So my understanding is. you want the 4 original speakers and subs and add 2 additional speakers making 6 speakers not uncluding subs..
Head units care barely push 4 decent normal size speaker. Usually they are 30-55watt per channel. If you have 2 non sub speakers that are 250 watt max.. that's 500 total but don't push the amp all the way...start with it at 1/4 and listen to your stereo at a higher than nominal volume slowly turning up the amp.
The market in Motorcycles, especially Harley Davidson pushes for helmet speakers. You cannot possibly get good sound when riding with externally mounted speakers. Only when sitting at an event will give you decent sounds. You probably already know this. I suggest pioneer Marine grade equipment, and a premium brand of Marine grade. I also suggest you gett a Helmet set so you can enjoy great music while riding if you dont already have it.
