The Kenwood amp has a gain control, no issues. Amplify everything if you can, it'll always sound better.

My suggestion is to amp the fronts, run the rears off the deck and yes the 8152 definitely has a gain control....

Definately amp the fronts - you could even go without the rear speakers (personal preference).
