Unhappy Focus 2012 aftermarket Amp & speakers

Hello Folks,

I've recently bought a Focus 2012 Hatchback Titanium, the Titanium model in the Middle East does not have a Sony 10-speaker system, so I'm stuck with SYNC 4-speaker 2-front-door-tweeter system, which leaves a lot to be Desired.

I decided after some thought to purchase 4 300 Watt Kenwood Speakers, and a 400Watt Kenwood Amp, then there was a LOC to be installed behind the Factory HU.

Now the Amp has only 2 channels, so the first problem I faced was: only the front warning sound of the parking sensors is audible, because the rear speakers don't represent the rear channel anymore. (Balance works, but Fade doesn't mean anything)

The second problem is: Bass quality is completely bad. Treble and Sound quality are much better and higher, Bass has a lot of noise and is just cr@p.

I didn't do the installation myself but I supervised every step, they cut the speaker wired from the base HU and connected a LOC, which in turn is connected to the Amp, with two RCA plugs going into the Amp.

Any suggestions? Thanks.
