I wouldn't suggest you wire any more speakers from the internal amplifier. This is because it won't provide sufficient power for both speakers if you wire it in series, and if you wire it in parallel then you're risking ruining the amp because headunits aren't two ohm stable.

The best way to do this would be simply buying a four channel amplifier and adding the new speakers to that or if you could find one that was two ohm stable with a more powerful output, then you could start wiring two speakers to each output.
