I'd get some nice 3 or 4 way 6x9'* at least to start. I've heard some Kenwood 6969ie and their mids are very nice and the high'* scream. Not that you have to go with those, but decent 4 way speakers will be a nice start.

So is trhe amp that I have good enough? I did think about buying a capacitor for the highs and the bass. I want all power and crystal clear loud sound.

Eclipse makes good component amps and components themselves. Very good quality. You should look into Eclipse you won't be sorry.

i'd ditch ur amp now and get a nice 4 channel amp. anywhere from 50x4 to 75x4 would be plenty. Xtant, Alpine, RF, PPI, etc would be a decent selection in amps
