no dude your car doesnt need it,you will only need when you get a well powered sub.If you want to take the advice that your sound barrier is not the best but you still like it,then get in contact with a good installer and arrange for a audition,if after the audition you feel those guys were right,then install a new amp,but if you like the sound barrier then keep it and think of it as a learning experience where you learnt about another amp.

Forget the damping. You just have 2 sets of coaxs.
Get damping when you get a sub and an amp to power that.

Thanks Guys,
You read my mind , i thought that i would not need that but better i took advice . I was thinking to power my rear Boston Speakers with the 2Ch sound barrier and thinking to purchase a new monoblock for the bass tube. Is that a good idea..?
But in any case i would do all this after 1st may (Budget Constraint).
So Guys pool in your suggestions.

i will not suggested you run your rear speaker with the amp.
and as for the mono amp i would say first upgrade your front speaker and then the sub and mono amp.
if budget purmits upgrade your fronts and add mono and sub in one go.

Why do i need to upgrade my front speakers..?
They are Polk Audio( i thought they were good and they are giving me what i want).
Sorry dont mean to be rude, but do tell me why do you think so..?

Hi garry :-) the fronts are coaxials and karan here was suggesting that you bump up to components upfront. They will provide you with more detail and you'll enjoy it more. In case you're happy with the fronts as of now, then i'd suggest you append the bass tube idea for later. Since the bass from that will overpower your unamplified speakers. And powering the rears will only make it unpleasant sounding. Since there'll be a lot of bass and less detail, due to the rears being coaxials and far away from you. Hence a set of front components are recommended,

there is a difference between coax and compo's,compo's give better sound as compared to coax as said by frank.try and audition a component from polk and you will find the difference.

But guys,he already has comps and co-axials,just in the wrong places,just exchange the places,and dont get a sub,get a good 4 channel amp to power the comps and co-axials,it will provide you with good bass and clarity of sound.Sell the sound barrier or keep it for later.If you do have extra cash the get the sub also,power the sub with the 4 channel, 2 channels bridged, and then the other 2 channels for the comps and the sound barrier can power the co-axials,this is best setup till you get money for mono block.This way you wont loose on any sound quality or bass.Increase in both.

Dost , i dont have Compos in front i have POLK coax in front and Boston Coax in Rear, what i am thinking to do is , power the rear speakers with a 2ch amp (sound barrier) and the bass tube(MTF with Sony woofer) with a Monoblock( probably JBL).
Pool in suggestions people.

A very bad option.
I'd say keep the fronts from the HU.
A pair of coaxs will sound better with the amp.
And as it is I presume you drive or sit in the front so giving external power to the rear would spoil the listening experience.
If you do want to power the Bostons, i'd suggest you to bring them in the front and move polks to the back.

The Boston speakers in the rear 6x9 oval and the front are 6 inches cicular, cant fit boston in front. if you see the picture of the speakers in the same thread , you would understand why i want to power boston with the amp.

Mistake dude,you already have components in the front.Dude,go to a nice installer and audition different systems.
If you do want a suggestion then provide budget.
Tell us your budget,like under 5?, 10k?, 15K? what?
Only then can you get best suggestions
