Default Soundstream and 5 channel as opposed to multiple amps

Back in the day, in this area anyway, Soundstream amps were some of the best. Amps still have a good rep? Anyway, being budget minded and not into comps, the Soundstream REF5.1000 seems to be an idea. Ideally I would love to being running 3 amps (front, rear, subs) but my setup does not really give me room. Running 4-8" subs, two under back seat and one each under front seat, leaves only the back cab wall for amp placement. I have done many mods for my install and gained a lot of room behind the rear seat. Still the only room available is between the two cab vents. I once again have done many mods but I am trying to stick to a stock look. Back to the original thought, with the Soundstream amps it looks like the 5 channel, mentioned above, will give me what I am looking for instead of running a 4 channel and sub amp. Comments/suggestions/reviews?
P.S. These amps are.....well.......let's just say at best maybe putting out half, if not a third, of rated RMS

I can't comment on soundstreams new stuff, but my friend is running an old Soundstream Reference amp for his sub and it does the job well. There are pros and cons to a single 5 ch amp. Pros...Simplicity, space saving too. Cons, maybe a little less control, tune-ability, limited power. I have 3 amps in my truck and love the outcome. However, i have one 5 channel in my wifes car and it's simple simple and sounds great!

Soundstream has brought back the Reference series and it is supposed to be better than ever. This was the five channel amp I was looking at. A class A/B for front and rear also a class D for the subs all in one package. I loved the Reference series but don't have the room to do anything with that series other than the 5 channel. Reference amps are huge. They have a Rubicon series that will work but I am still going to have to settle for a four channel for the front and rear, max room for two amps. I notice some are doing these nano series which are pretty small but I am afraid to spend money with experiencing them.
