Amps needed to run 6 speakers ?

Ive gutted my sound system entirely in my E36 325.

I want to add 6 speakers (4 front, 2 rear, plus 10" sub)

The 2 fronts are tweets, 2 door are 5", and 2 rear are 6x9. Sub is a fosgate 10.

right now i have 1 amp 4 channel, in the past in other cars i used it to power to 2 rear 6x9 and bridged channels 3-4 to the sub. then i just ran the head unit outs to the front speakers and 2 sets of RCAs to the amp in back.

but now i want the fronts to sound better, so im thinking of adding 2nd amp 4 channel amp for the 4 front speakers.

my current hu only has 3 RCA jacks on the back, i think i will need 4, right ?

any help is appreciated
