Would new amp sound better at low volume?

I have the BA sound system in my car, and I'm wondering if a new amp would improve the sound at low listening volume, or would it only provide improved sound at higher volumes?

A new amp sounds better at any volume. The amp is the glaring weakspot in the BA system.

Thanks. Apparently, the BA amp is pretty weak. I think it's a little thin sounding.

Will a FARK kit and a new 4/5 channel amp power the center speaker in addition to the fronts?

No, the FARK kit eliminates the center speaker

Thanks. I'm going to wait until subthump gets some more FARK kits in stock.
