You NEED at least one amp.

to make it simple:
get at least a 600w 4 channel amp, it shouldn't be too expensive.
if you want a perfect setup, get a 5 channel amp and get comps for the fronts not two way speakers.

if you want more detailed help, feel free to ask.

edit: I just noticed you have two subs, you gonna have to get a much more powerful amp than what I said earlier.
also for the subs, you need them boxed properly and get the wiring kits to get the sound and power to the amps.

Basically, amp them all up! get a 4channel for the 6x9s and co-axials and a 2channel for the subs. Only thing I'll say, is get a decent amp for the fronts, so that they aren't drowned out by the bass of the subs. Nothing worse than not being to hear music due to overpowering bass in my opinion.

get at least a two channel 800w amp for the subs.
and another 400w or 600w 4 channel amp for the speakers.

Yeah, don't shop for amps by their max power rating, i.e. 800w etc, look fo their rms power rating (also called continuous or nominal). Find out the rms rating of your speakers and try and match witht he amp.
