audio question please help

The following are my audio stuff which are waiting for install
JL 12W3 sub
JL XR525cs front speakers
JL XR650cx coaxial for rear
Lanzar 4*50W amp with crossover.

I was told to wire the front and the amp on the lanzat and uses the stock amp to run the rear coax.

Will there be enough power to push the whole setup?

On the forum, I saw all of you guys use big W amp to run amp and multiple amp to run speakers.
What I am looking for is just a bit better and more bass than the stock sub and some clearer sound. Will my setup be able to do this?

your stock amp WILL NOT push all that! dont even wast your time trying it. the best thing to do is to add a sub to the HK system and a SUB AMP. the rest of the system sounds really good. take back all the stuff you bought except for the 12 and get a SUB AMP

Let me clarify something

I mean use the lanzar amp to push the front speakers and the sub.
And use the stock amp to push just the rear coaxials.
Also, I have stock audio system, which is not even hk.

how is the price of the amp related to the question?

It is a used one but its qualify should be good.
It is the top series of lanzar amp before switching the owner.

you should have no prob running just the rear co-ax's with the stock amp. but i do recommend you put some kind of high-pass crossover or bass blocker for the rears. in good setups, rear sound is not as critical as the front soundstage.
