I'm wanting to put my system in my 2010 ford, basicly 2 amps and a sub but I don't want to change out the stock radio. Will all this stuff hook up or am I going to need something like a JL clean sweep?

Whatever.
I would use an active line output converter like an Audio Control LC6 or Cashe 2 channel or 6 channel LOC. Passive converters are cheaper but the fidelity is worse especially on the bass and the higher you turn the volume on the deck, the worse the bass gets. Active LOC's also ahev line drivers to increase the signal into the amp. You could also incorporate a JL Audio CL-RLC if you wanted to have a remote bass volume.
Some amps, like JL Audio, allow you to connect speaker wire to an rca end and plug it directly into the amp with no LOC needed.

Which one of those two do think is best?
I'm using jl amps 300/4 and 500/1

Audio control but I would attach RCAs to the speaker wire first and add a JL CL-RLC knob. If you have noise issues, I would add a processor. The JL amps do not need a line output converter.
I would run RCA's from the deck to the amp so they are in the dash if you decide to change decks later and I would attach RCA ends to the speaker wire outputs of the deck.
