2014 Chevy Malibu LT sound upgrade

So I just picked up a Brand new Chevy Malibu LT onstar xm touchscreen etc.

I want it loud! like there's thunder midgets wrestling in the trunk! 600 watts rms or more
I want it clear! im thinking infinity reference components powered at 100 watts rms per channel!

I want the head unit stock!.....wait?!..... Whaaa!!??

anyone got some time to kill?

explain for me line out conversion, clean sweeps factory wiring etc.

Digital Sound Processor is what you need, it will give you full control of the speakers, retain a clean signal to aftermarket amplifiers while retaining your stock head unit. Pricey but it is the only way to go if you want to have clear as day sound quality with ground pounding bass.
Cheaper ones would be JBL MS-8, rockford 3Sixty

First, Thank You for the reply
second, is that the only option? I've never used line converters, clean sweeps etc

The other option is to change your factory headunit and the cheapest would be a line out converter. In car audio though you get what you pay for.

Ok thanks again,

I definitely do not want to cheap out or do this install more than once...really
My last install (2008) I swapped out a chrysler mygig for a kenwood deck with pre-outs and bluetooth but this H/U stays....at least until my onstar and xm expire
