Will it enhance or just disturb the imaging?

Why do you ask?
or should I make connection between soundbar and amp directly
My goal is to get better sound volume control
Thanks for replay
I am looking to replace the fronts and centers of my 6.2 sound system with a passive soundbar. I have Polk RM10 speakers. The reason is so I can up the system to a 9.2 with a single speaker in the front, to make the wife happy.
I was considering:
First, would it be recommended? Second, what is the best match for my system?
I would not recommend this. A soundbar will be a massive downgrade compared to having real speakers L, R, and center. Would be sorta like going from actual speakers to a bose system imo.
The Polk's that you have are itty bitty satellites that will already be giving up a lot of sound quality compared to even bookshelf speakers. Normally, bookshelf speakers are considered to be high WAF, you are a big step down from bookshelves with your little satellites. I say put your foot down and have her deal with it. Show here some giant honking floorstanders and massive home theater sub you would like to get(not really), then maybe she will be happy with your itty bitty satellites.

Ok so I'm no audiophile but I think I understand the arguments here. What I'm looking for is a center speaker that looks like a soundbar as I like the thin clean look it provides. I still would use a left right and two rear speakers. Anyone know if this product exists?
The "flat panel speaker" would be close to what you're looking for - a center channel that resembles a sound bar.
Both of these are ~4" height and 16/17 width, 40w RMS, 120w max.
